Use of the navigator probe after radiotracer injection to identify nonpalpable rib lesions requiring surgical resection.

Innovations (Phila) 2006 ;1(5):272-5

From the *Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, †Section of Surgical Oncology, and ‡Department of Radiology, Boston University Medical Center, Boston, MA.

Background: : Patients with nonpalpable rib lesions (NPRL) requiring biopsy present a challenging problem for the thoracic surgeon. Ideally, a small incision directly over the NPRL should be performed to minimize morbidity, particularly if the lesion is benign. The Navigator probe is routinely used after lymphoscintigraphy by surgical oncologists to isolate sentinel lymph nodes requiring removal, but can also be used to guide resection of nonpalpable focal rib lesions demonstrating increased technetium-99m hydroxymethylene diphosphonate (Tc-99m HDP) uptake.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The Jikei University School of Medicine, 3-25-8 Nishi-shinbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo, 105-8461, Japan.

We report a rare case of eosinophilic granuloma of the sternum in a 25-year-old woman, who presented with anterior chest pain and a tender mass over the sternum. Total-body bone scintigraphy and computed tomography scanning of the thorax revealed an isolated lytic lesion of the manubrium. An open biopsy showed the typical histologic appearance of an eosinophilic granuloma. Read More

Surgical treatment of eosinophilic granuloma in the thoracic spine in patients with neurological lesions.

J Pediatr Orthop B 2003 Sep;12(5):303-6

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, University Federal of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

Eosinophilic granuloma is a benign, self-limited condition most commonly seen in children around 10 years of age. There is no known cause concerning its etiology. The lesion is usually solitary and can involve the whole vertebral body with massive destruction and vertebral collapse ('coin lesion') but this appearance is not pathognomonic. Read More

Polyostotic monosystemic calvarial and spinal langerhans' cell histiocytosis treated by surgery and chemotherapy.

Pediatr Neurosurg 2003 Apr;38(4):206-11

Department of Neurosurgery, SSK Vakif Gureba Teaching Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

There are several treatment modalities for Langerhans' cell histiocytosis (LCH) of bone, formerly usually referred to as eosinophilic granuloma, including surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In spinal lesions, surgery is not recommended generally, because of the potential for reconstitution of vertebral height. We report a case of multifocal monosystemic LCH treated by surgery and chemotherapy for calvarial and spinal lesions. Read More
