ABSTRACT

It is essential to record maxillomandibular relationship accurately for the harmony of esthetic and function in complete denture. Gothic arch tracing visually demonstrates themovement of the mandible, and is useful to establish accurate and reproducible centric relation. Proper retention and stability of complete denture in patients with severe alveolarbone resorption is difficult to attain. In such case, the closed mouth impression technique might be recommended. The denture border and impression are determined bypatient’s physiologic movement in the closed mouth impression technique. And, denture peripheral border is entirely closed with oral mucous membrane. This report presentssatisfactory complete denture restoration using closed mouth impression technique and gothic arch tracing in patients with mandibular condyle fracture and severe absorptionof mandibular alveolar ridge.

ABSTRACT

Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL) is a very rare benign disease, characterized by multiple solid subperitoneal or peritoneal smooth muscle nodules in abdominopelvic cavity and malignant transformation is extremely rare. Also, uterine smooth muscle tumors of unknown malignant potential (STUMP) is a rare tumor, which is regarded as subclassification in uterine smooth muscle tumors between benign and malignant criteria. Pathogenesis of DPL is uncertain, but increasing evidence of iatrogenic cause including laparoscopic myomectomy has been reported.We report a case of a 28-year-old female with previous history of laparoscopic myomectomy diagnosed with DPL with atypical feature and concurrent uterine STUMP using computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as present a review of the literature.

ABSTRACT

Purpose@#We investigated the expression of Nrf2 in colorectal cancer and its correlation with clinicopathological characteristics as well as mechanisms and roles of Nrf2 expression including cell signaling pathway, survival, proliferation, and migration. @*Methods@#Nrf2 expression was measured in 12 and 30 different colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues by western blot (WB) and immunohistochemistry (IHC), respectively. SW480 cells were used for cell proliferation and cell migration tests. The correlation between the expression of Nrf2 and clinicopathologic parameters were evaluated using the chi-square or Fisher exact test. Data are expressed as the mean ± standard deviation for 3 independent experiments. P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. @*Results@#Analysis of WB demonstrated that Nrf2 proteins were increased in CRC tissues, and decreased in normal tissues. IHC staining showed that the Nrf2 expression was elevated in CRC tissues, compared to matched normal tissues. When SW480 cells were suppressed with small interfering RNA of Nrf2, cell viability was inhibited, and cell apoptosis was increased. These results were found along with suppression of the phosphorylated form of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 and AKT. @*Conclusion@#This study suggests that overexpression of Nrf2 may be related to carcinogenesis and progression of CRC.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: There is a paucity of literature on the use of hip arthroscopy for pathologic conditions in skeletally immature patients. Thus, the indications and safety of the procedure are still unclear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the safety and functional outcomes of hip arthroscopy for pediatric and adolescent hip disorders. We further attempted to characterize arthroscopic findings in each disease.METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 32 children and adolescents with hip disorders who underwent 34 hip arthroscopic procedures at a tertiary care children's hospital from January 2010 to December 2016. We evaluated functional limitations and improvement after operation by using the modified Harris hip score (HHS), the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), subjective pain assessment with a visual analog scale (VAS), and range of hip motion as well as the complications of hip arthroscopy. Arthroscopic findings in each disease were recorded.RESULTS: Hip arthroscopy was performed for Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (n = 6), developmental dysplasia of the hip (n = 6), slipped capital femoral epiphysis (n = 5), idiopathic femoroacetabular impingement (n = 6), sequelae of septic arthritis of the hip (n = 3), hereditary multiple exostosis (n = 2), synovial giant cell tumor (n = 3), idiopathic chondrolysis (n = 2), and posttraumatic osteonecrosis of the femoral head (n = 1). Overall, there was a significant improvement in the modified HHS, WOMAC, VAS, and range of hip motion. Symptom improvement was not observed for more than 18 months in four patients who had dysplastic acetabulum with a labral tear (n = 2) or a recurrent femoral head bump (n = 2). There were no complications except transient perineal numbness in five patients.CONCLUSIONS: Our short-term follow-up evaluation shows that hip arthroscopy for pediatric and adolescent hip disorder is a less invasive and safe procedure. It appears to be effective in improving functional impairment caused by femoroacetabular impingement between the deformed femoral head and acetabulum or intra-articular focal problems in pediatric and adolescent hip disorders.

ABSTRACT

Cases of simultaneously occurring medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) and lymphoma are extremely rare. An 84-year-old woman visited the hospital due to dyspnea, resulting from rapidly aggravated enlarged neck mass. Ultrasonography revealed two lesions in the thyroid and they were diagnosed as concurrent medullary thyroid carcinoma and diffuse large B cell lymphoma after total thyroidectomy. A few cases simultaneously diagnosed with MTC and systemic lymphoma have been reported. However, the coexistence of MTC and primary thyroid lymphoma is extremely rare.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Kabuki syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by distinct dysmorphic facial features, growth deficiency, intellectual disabilities, unusual dermatoglyphic patterns, and skeletal abnormalities. The incidence of hip dislocation in Kabuki syndrome ranges from 18% to 62%. We reviewed the outcomes of management of hip dislocations in patients with Kabuki syndrome with special attention to the diagnostic processes for hip dislocation and Kabuki syndrome. METHODS: Among 30 patients with mutation-confirmed Kabuki syndrome, we selected six patients who had hip dislocations and reviewed their medical records and plain radiographs. The modes of presentation and diagnostic processes for both hip dislocations and Kabuki syndrome were investigated. The management and treatment outcomes of hip dislocations in patients with Kabuki syndrome were evaluated. RESULTS: The average age of patients at the time of diagnosis of hip dislocation was 7.7 months (range, 1 week to 22 months). None of the patients were diagnosed as having Kabuki syndrome at that time. Two patients were treated with a Pavlik harness; one, with closed reduction; two, with open reduction and later pelvic and/or femoral osteotomies; and one, with open reduction combined with pelvic osteotomy. The patients were followed up for 5.8 years on average (range, 2.0 to 10.5 years). The radiologic outcome was graded as Severin IA or IB for three patients who were older than 6 years at the latest follow-up (mean age, 9.9 years; range, 7.8 to 12.4 years). In the remaining three patients younger than 6 years (mean age, 3.8 years; range, 2.7 to 5.3 years), the lateral center edge angle was more than 15°. The clinical diagnosis of Kabuki syndrome was made during follow-up after hip dislocation treatment and confirmed by mutational analysis at a mean age of 4.7 years. The mean interval between the diagnosis of hip dislocation and Kabuki syndrome was 4.0 years. CONCLUSIONS: The management of hip dislocation by conservative or surgical method showed successful results. Awareness of Kabuki syndrome could lead to an early diagnosis of this rare disease in patients with hip dislocation and allow for early detection of other underlying conditions and multidisciplinary management.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: More than 50% of diagnostic surgery in cytologically indeterminate thyroid nodules revealed benign nodules of which nodular hyperplasia (NH) accounted for about half. Preoperative exclusion of NH may decrease diagnostic surgery. We aimed to study the diagnostic performance of shear wave elastography (SWE) to differentiate follicular neoplasm (FN) from NH in follicular lesions of thyroid nodules. METHODS: We analyzed the data from 61 patients who underwent SWE before ultrasound-guided core-needle biopsy (CNB) from August 2016 to May 2018 and CNB results were FN (n=19) and NH (n=42). We analyzed the magnitude of elasticity index (EI) and patterns of high EI area (EI >36 kPa). The patterns of high EI area was classified as marginal pattern (high EI areas are restricted in the outer 1/3 of the nodule) and traversing pattern (high EI areas approaching further to the center of the nodule within inner 2/3 of the nodule). RESULTS: The E(Max), E(Mean), E(SD), and percent of high EI area were significantly lower in FN than NH (P<0.001). The diagnostic performance to predict FN showed sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of 95%, 90%, and 92% by E(Max) <42.1 kPa, and of 95%, 79%, and 84% by E(Mean) <23.5 kPa, and of 89%, 93%, and 92% by marginal pattern of high EI area, respectively. CONCLUSION: Novel diagnostic criteria of E(Max) less than 42.1 kPa and marginal pattern of high EI area on SWE can predict FN with high diagnostic accuracy, waiving diagnostic surgery of NH in indeterminate cytology.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: We report the case of a patient diagnosed with central retinal artery occlusion caused by cardiac myxoma who underwent surgery to remove the myxoma. CASE SUMMARY: A 47-year-old woman came to our clinic presenting with a sudden decrease of visual acuity in the left eye. At the first visit, left eye visual acuity was hand motion, and intraocular pressure was 15.4 mmHg. A relative afferent pupillary defect was observed in the left eye. On fundus examination, a pale retina and cherry-red spot were observed at the posterior pole. On optical coherence tomography, macular edema was found. On fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography, delayed blood circulation of the retina and choroid was found at early and late stages. Cerebral angiography was performed in the neurosurgery department and showed no occlusion of the ophthalmic artery. Cardiac ultrasonography and brain magnetic resonance imaging were performed. On cardiac ultrasonography, 4.46 × 2.09 cm cardiac myxoma was found. Resection of the cardiac myxoma was conducted in the thoracic and cardiovascular surgery department. Multiple cerebral infarcts were detected by brain imaging, and antithrombotic treatment was administered. After one month, blood circulation in the retina and choroid was observed in fluorescence angiography, but there was no improvement of visual acuity. At the 3-month follow-up visit, macular edema was decreased, but retinal atrophy and epiretinal membrane were observed on optical coherence tomography. CONCLUSIONS: Central retinal artery occlusion is a disease related to one's general condition. We experienced this case of central retinal artery occlusion caused by cardiac myxoma.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Camurati-Engelmann disease (CED) is a rare genetic skeletal disorder characterized by limb pain, muscle emaciation and weakness, and cortical thickening of the diaphysis of long bones. It is caused by mutations in the transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFB1) (type I) or other unknown gene(s) (type II). We present 8 consecutive patients with type I CED. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records and radiographs of type I CED patients with special reference to the mode of presentation, process of diagnostic work-up, and disease course. They were 4 sporadic patients, and two pairs of mother and son. RESULTS: We categorized the mode of presentation into three groups. Group I had 4 patients who mainly presented with motor disturbances in young age. They drew medical attention for waddling gait, awkward ambulation or running, difficulty in going upstairs, or a positive Gower's sign at age 4 to 6 years. Subsequent development of limb pain and radiographic abnormality led to the diagnosis of CED at age 6 to 29 years. Group II had 3 patients who mainly presented with limb pain at age 15, 20, and 54 years, respectively. Radiographic evaluation and molecular genetic test led to the diagnosis of CED. The remaining 1 patient (group III) was asymptomatic until age 9 years when bony lesions at the tibiae were found incidentally. For the last 10 years, he intermittently complained of leg pain in the morning or after sports activities, which did not interfere with daily life. All the patients in group I showed a body mass index in the underweight range (< 18.4 kg/m²). At the latest follow-up, 4 patients in groups I and II required medication for the limb pain. CONCLUSIONS: CED presents with a wide range of severity. Awareness of this rare disease entity may be the key to timely correct diagnosis. This disease entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of limb pain or motor disturbance in children to avoid unnecessary diagnostic work-up.

ABSTRACT

Primary Sjogren's syndrome (pSS) is characterized by lymphocytic infiltration to the lacrimal and salivary glands. However, it also includes a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations, including musculoskeletal, lung, kidney, neurological, and cardiac manifestations. Cardiac involvement in pSS leads to various conditions including pericardial effusion (PE), left heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, and left atrial hypertrophy. A large PE without pulmonary arterial hypertension is extremely rare and there has been no case in Korea, to date. We report a case of a 45-year-old woman with newly-diagnosed pSS who presented with a large PE and pleural effusion. The patient experienced a significant improvement of the PE following treatment with steroids.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Since 2007 when anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangements were discovered in non-small cell lung cancer, the ALK gene has received attention due to ALK-targeted therapy, and a notable treatment advantage has been observed in patients harboring the EML4/ALK translocation. However, using ALK-fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) as the standard method has demerits such as high cost, a time-consuming process, dependency on interpretation skill, and tissue preparation. We analyzed the histologic findings which could complement the limitation of ALK-FISH test for pulmonary adenocarcinoma. METHODS: Two hundred five cases of ALK-positive and 101 of ALK-negative pulmonary adenocarcinoma from January 2007 to May 2013 were enrolled in this study. The histologic findings and ALK immunohistochemistry results were reviewed and compared with the results of ALK-FISH and EGFR/KRAS mutation status. RESULTS: Acinar, cribriform, and solid growth patterns, extracellular and intracellular mucin production, and presence of signet-ring-cell element, and psammoma body were significantly more often present in ALK-positive cancer. In addition, the presence of goblet cell-like cells and presence of nuclear inclusion and groove resembling papillary thyroid carcinoma were common in the ALK-positive group. CONCLUSIONS: The above histologic parameters can be helpful in predicting ALK rearranged pulmonary adenocarcinoma, leading to rapid FISH analysis and timely treatment.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Distraction osteogenesis (DO) is a promising tool for bone and tissue regeneration. However, prolonged healing time remains a major problem. Various materials including cells, cytokines, and growth factors have been used in an attempt to enhance bone formation. We examined the effect of percutaneous injection of demineralized bone matrix (DBM) during the consolidation phase on bone regeneration after distraction. METHODS: The immature rabbit tibial DO model (20 mm length-gain) was used. Twenty-eight animals received DBM 100 mg percutaneously at the end of distraction. Another 22 animals were left without further procedure (control). Plain radiographs were taken every week. Postmortem bone dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) studies were performed at the third and sixth weeks of the consolidation period and histological analysis was performed. RESULTS: The regenerate bone mineral density was higher in the DBM group when compared with that in the saline injection control group at the third week postdistraction. Quantitative analysis using micro-CT revealed larger trabecular bone volume, higher trabecular number, and less trabecular separation in the DBM group than in the saline injection control group. Cross-sectional area and cortical thickness at the sixth week postdistraction, assessed using micro-CT, were greater in the regenerates of the DBM group compared with the control group. Histological evaluation revealed higher trabecular bone volume and trabecular number in the regenerate of the DBM group. New bone formation was apparently enhanced, via endochondral ossification, at the site and in the vicinity of the injected DBM. DBM was absorbed slowly, but it remained until the sixth postoperative week after injection. CONCLUSIONS: DBM administration into the distraction gap at the end of the distraction period resulted in a significantly greater regenerate bone area, trabecular number, and cortical thickness in the rabbit tibial DO model. These data suggest that percutaneous DBM administration at the end of the distraction period or in the early consolidation period may stimulate regenerate bone formation and consolidation in a clinical situation with delayed bone healing during DO.

ABSTRACT

Primary cutaneous apocrine carcinoma is a rare adnexal tumor of the skin that occurs mainly in the axilla, anogenital area while the scalp and the lower extremities, especially the thigh, are very unusual sites. However, clinical or pathologic characteristics have not been well established due to a paucity of this tumor. Herein, we report very unusual case of apocrine carcinoma present as a huge mass in the lateral thigh of 77-year-old woman, which was aggravated abruptly after an irritation by moxa treatment, with a brief review of the literature.

ABSTRACT

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection has been associated with a number of lymphoid malignancies, including endemic Burkitt's lymphoma, some classical Hodgkin's lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, and angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma. A 59-year-old woman underwent an excisional biopsy for a left axillary mass under suspicion of malignant lymphoma. A preoperative radiological study revealed multiple enlarged lymph nodes at the left axilla, mesentery, and the left external iliac chain with hypermetabolism on a positron emission tomography-computed tomography scan. She was histologically diagnosed with EBV-positive follicular lymphoma (FL, grade 3a) and received the R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) chemotherapy regimen. Herein, we report a rare case of EBV associated FL of lymph node with its review of literature.

ABSTRACT

Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are characterized by the presence of abnormal connections between feeding arteries and draining veins. It is generally assumed that symptomatic lesions can preferably be treated. Due to high arterial blood flow, there is a risk of bleeding with surgical excision alone, which can be massive and life threatening during the operation. According to recent advances in interventional technique, a hybrid approach using embolization of the feeding artery with subsequent immediate excision of the AVM for successful management of vascular lesions could be applied to AVMs. Herein, we describe a case of successful excision of AVM in the left soleus muscle using a hybrid approach.

ABSTRACT

Tamoxifen has been widely used for adjuvant treatment of breast cancer, but several gynecological side effects have been noted, including endometrial hyperplasia, polyp and carcinoma. Polypoid endometriosis is one of the extremely rare benign complications associated with tamoxifen therapy. A 66-year-old postmenopausal woman, who had received left partial mastectomy due to breast cancer (about 4 years ago) and was taking tamoxifen treatment, had an ovarian cyst on ultrasonography. Pelvic magnetic resonance imaging suggested tamoxifen-associated endometrial and ovarian changes, especially a 4.1x3.4-cm-sized, well-defined, multicystic mass in the right ovary. She received hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Microscopically, the right paratubal mass showed endometrial glands and stroma, and immunohistochemical staining for CD10 confirmed the endometrial nature of the stroma. Three cases of polypoid endometriosis have been reported in the Korean literature, but in none of the cases, polypoid endometriosis was associated with tamoxifen use. Herein, we report the first case of polypoid endometriosis associated with tamoxifen treatment in Korea.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Malignant mesothelioma of the pleura is an aggressive tumor known to be associated with asbestos. Histological diagnosis of mesothelioma is challenging and is usually aided by immunohistochemical markers. METHODS: During an 18-year period (1995-2012), 66 patients with pleural mesothelioma were diagnosed at the Samsung Medical Center in Seoul. We reviewed hematoxylin and eosin and immunohistochemical slides of pleural mesothelioma and evaluated their pathological and clinical features. RESULTS: The male-to-female ratio was 1.75:1, and age of patients ranged from 28 to 80 years with an average age of 56.84 years. Twenty-two out of 66 patients underwent curative pneumonectomy. Follow-up data was available in 60 patients (90.9%), and 50 of them (83.3%) died from the disease. The average overall survival was 15.39 months. Histologically, the epithelioid type was the most common, followed by the sarcomatoid and the biphasic types. Epidemiologic information was not available in most cases, and only one patient was confirmed to have a history of asbestos exposure. CONCLUSIONS: Malignant mesothelioma of the pleura is a fatal tumor, and the therapeutic benefit of pneumonectomy remains unproven. The combination of calretinin, Wilms tumor 1, HMBE-1, and thyroid transcription factor-1 may provide high diagnostic accuracy in diagnosing mesothelioma.
