Incidental Uptake in Benign Gynecomastia on 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT.

Clin Nucl Med 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

From the Breast Imaging and.

A 54-year-old man with mesenteric carcinoid tumor metastatic to the liver completed staging Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT demonstrating uptake in multiple hepatic lesions consistent with liver metastases with additional asymmetric increased uptake in the right greater than the left breast. Subsequent bilateral diagnostic mammogram revealed benign right greater than left gynecomastia without suspicious underlying mass. With Food and Drug Administration approval of Ga-DOTATATE and the increased use of this analog in neuroendocrine tumor imaging, this case illustrates a relevant example of uptake that can potentially mimic malignancy.

Department of Pathology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 55 Fruit Street, Boston, MA 02114-2696, United States. Electronic address:

Neuroendocrine paraneoplastic syndromes (PNS) consist of metabolic disorders that accompany benign and malignant neoplasms but remain unrelated to mass effects or invasion by the primary tumor or its metastases. The underlying pathogenesis responsible for PNS usual clinical presentation rely on aberrant production of protein hormones, proteins and other substances by the tumor. Prompt recognition of characteristic signs and symptoms combined with serological identification of key substances may result in early diagnosis of PNS and its underlying malignancy. Read More

Eplerenone Versus Spironolactone in Resistant Hypertension: an Efficacy and/or Cost or Just a Men's Issue?

Curr Hypertens Rep 2019 Mar 2;21(3):22. Epub 2019 Mar 2.

Third Department of Cardiology, Athens University School of Medicine, Vas. Sofias 114, 115 27, Athens, Greece.

Purpose Of Review: To review comparative efficacy and tolerability data between the two main mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs), spironolactone and eplerenone, in patients with resistant hypertension (HTN). The focus was whether spironolactone, being the classical non-selective agent that has been used for years, albeit with several anti-androgenic side effects, can be rivaled by eplerenone, an apparently weaker, but better tolerated, more selective MRA.

Recent Findings: Evidence has accumulated that resistant HTN is generally volume-dependent, attributable to varying degrees of aldosterone excess with its attendant renal effects of sodium and fluid retention. Read More

Aberrant axillary breast tissue with pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia in a man.

Cesk Patol Summer 2018;54(3):143-146

Diagnosing accessory breast tissue in a male patient is difficult when the condition is unilateral, and there is no areola or nipple. Pseudoangiomatous hyperplasia of the mammary stroma is an uncommon benign mesenchymal proliferation that may mimic low-grade angiosarcoma. We report herein an example of tumoriform pseudoangiomatous hyperplasia of the stroma arising in the accessory breast tissue of a 38-year-old man. Read More

The Ascent of Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonists in Diabetic Nephropathy.

Curr Clin Pharmacol 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Clinical Pharmacology, SRM MCH &RC, Kattankulathur, Chennai, Tamil Nadu. India.

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is defined as a decline in the renal function and an increase in the amount of albuminuria (>300 mg/day). The well-established first-line drug therapies for DN include angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEi) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) and the second line drug therapies include calcium channel blockers or diuretics. The interruption of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) by ACEi and ARBs has been beneficial in reducing the progression of renal diseases; however, there is an increase in the levels of aldosterone due to the aldosterone escape phenomenon.

Impaired dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis in pubertal gynecomastia.

Int J Adolesc Med Health 2018 Nov 6. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Department of Clinical Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine, Yildirim Beyazit University, Ankara, Turkey.

Background The aim of the study was to evaluate the dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis (TDH) with a new method in patients with pubertal gynecomastia and also to investigate the relationship between sex hormones. Methods Thiol/disulfide homeostasis, involving native thiol (SH), disulfide (SS) and total thiol (SS + SH), was evaluated between 20 adolescent boys with gynecomastia in mid-puberty and 50 healthy adolescents, who were matched for age, body mass index (BMI) and pubertal stage. The correlations of total serum testosterone (TT) and estradiol (E2) levels with the oxidative parameters were also determined. Read More

ACR Appropriateness Criteria Evaluation of the Symptomatic Male Breast.

J Am Coll Radiol 2018 Nov;15(11S):S313-S320

Panel Chair, Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia.

Although the majority of male breast problems are benign with gynecomastia as the most common etiology, men with breast symptoms and their referring providers are typically concerned about whether or not it is due to breast cancer. If the differentiation between benign disease and breast cancer cannot be made on the basis of clinical findings, or if the clinical presentation is suspicious, imaging is indicated. The panel recommends the following approach to breast imaging in symptomatic men. Read More
