Perioperative management of an anterior mediastinal teratoma in an infant: one more tool in the toolbox.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Nov 1;2018. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Surgery, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Anterior mediastinal masses present a significant challenge in the perioperative period. Standard anaesthetic induction and airway management are often not feasible due to the risk of complete respiratory and/or cardiovascular collapse. Invasive manoeuvres, such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, cardiac bypass, or tracheal or bronchial stenting, are sometimes not applicable due to significant anatomic aberration. Read More

Cough, Hemoptysis and Hair Expectoration: An Intrapulmonary Teratoma.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2018 03;28(3):243-244

Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, The Aga Khan University and Hospital, Karachi.

Teratomas can be found in different organs of the body and may involve gonads, saccrococcygeal region, mediastinum and other sites. Intrathoracic teratomas always occur in mediastinum and less often arise within the lung. As teratomas mostly involve sex organs (gonads), they rarely occur as extra-gonadal tumors accounting for only 3% of all the cases and very small percentage of such tumors occur in mediastinum.

Neoplastic Pericardial Disease.

Cardiol Clin 2017 Nov 6;35(4):589-600. Epub 2017 Sep 6.

Department of Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905, USA; Division of Cardiac Radiology, Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905, USA.

Pericardial tumors are rare lesions that include a range of neoplastic conditions that may arise within the pericardium or metastasize to involve it secondarily. Understanding the spectrum of lesions that are included in the differential diagnosis of a pericardial mass-lesion is critical to making timely, accurate diagnoses and getting the appropriate therapy should one be necessary. This review summarizes the radiologic and pathologic findings of the most commonly encountered of these entities. Read More

Imaging-Guided Use of Combined Lu-DOTATATE and Capecitabine Therapy in Metastatic Mediastinal Paraganglioma.

J Nucl Med Technol 2017 Dec 10;45(4):314-316. Epub 2017 Aug 10.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India; and.

Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy targets highly expressed somatostatin receptors in well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, producing stability or a partial response in most patients with inoperable or metastatic disease. However, neuroendocrine tumors showing increased F-FDG uptake have limited treatment options and a poor outcome, and the role of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy is still unclear. Here, we present the case of a young man with mediastinal paraganglioma and extensive metastatic disease showing avidity on both somatostatin receptor imaging and F-FDG imaging. Read More
