Horner's Syndrome as Initial Manifestation of Possible Brachial Plexopathy Neurolymphomatosis.

Front Neurol 2019 22;10. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Neurology, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, OH, United States.

Horner's syndrome is an established clinical finding unique to neoplastic brachial plexopathy. We present the case of a patient who developed Horner's syndrome as the first manifestation of neurolymphomatosis (NL) of the brachial plexus that did not have the usually associated bulky adenopathy/Pancoast syndrome phenotype. We discuss the clinical utility of Horner's syndrome with regards to brachial plexopathy of indeterminate etiology, as well as the utility of other diagnostic modalities in NL. Read More

Conservative Management of Neuropathic Pain in a Patient With Pancoast-Tobias Syndrome: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2018 Jul;11(2):29-31

From the Departments of Chronic Pain Medicine.

Pancoast-Tobias syndrome characterizes the signs and symptoms of a superior pulmonary sulcus tumor, and includes arm and shoulder pain, atrophy of intrinsic hand muscles, and ipsilateral Horner syndrome. The rarity and overall poor prognosis of patients with superior pulmonary sulcus tumors associated with Pancoast-Tobias syndrome has led to few reports detailing pain management strategies with adjunctive therapies, such as continuous infusions of ketamine and lidocaine, chemotherapy, radiation, and multimodal oral medication regimens. This case highlights the diagnosis and treatment of pain in a patient with Pancoast-Tobias syndrome. Read More

Department of Thoracic Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, 1600 Divisadero Street, Room A-743, San Francisco, CA 94143-1724, USA.

Superior sulcus tumors have posed a formidable therapeutic challenge since their original description by Pancoast and Tobias in the early twentieth century. Initial therapeutic efforts with radiotherapy were associated with high rates of relapse and mortality. Bimodality therapy with complete surgical resection in the 1960s paved the way for trimodality therapy as the current standard of care in the treatment of superior sulcus tumors. Read More

Ectopic ACTH-producing large cell neuroendocrine Pancoast tumour presenting as Horner syndrome.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Mar 24;2017. Epub 2017 Mar 24.

Department of Family Medicine, Apple Valley Medical Clinic, Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA.

We present an interesting case where a patient is presented with a droopy left eyelid (as part of Horner syndrome) and Cushingoid features which were a result of a Pancoast tumour (apical lung tumour in superior pulmonary sulcus) involving the left lung. This tumour was secreting ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), a paraneoplastic endocrine phenomenon, which resulted in Cushing syndrome symptomatology. Though most ectopic ACTH-producing lung cancers are either small cell or carcinoid tumours, this was in fact a large cell neuroendocrine cancer (LCNEC). Read More

Thoracic Surgery Unit, Department of Cardiologic, Thoracic and Vascular Sciences, University of Padua, Padova, Italy.

Superior Sulcus Tumors, frequently termed as Pancoast tumors, are a wide range of tumors invading the apical chest wall. Due to its localization in the apex of the lung, with the potential invasion of the lower part of the brachial plexus, first ribs, vertebrae, subclavian vessels or stellate ganglion, the superior sulcus tumors cause characteristic symptoms, like arm or shoulder pain or Horner's syndrome. The management of superior sulcus tumors has dramatically evolved over the past 50 years. Read More

Use of FDG PET/CT in Patients with Pancoast Tumors: Does It Add Any Contribution to Patient Management?

Cancer Biother Radiopharm 2015 Oct 14;30(8):359-67. Epub 2015 Sep 14.

5 Department of Nuclear Medicine, Gulhane Military Medical Academy and Medical Faculty , Ankara, Turkey .

Purpose: To evaluate any potential value of 2-deoxy-2-[18F] fluoro-D-glucose with positron emission tomography/computerized tomography (FDG PET/CT) in staging of patients with Pancoast tumors and to investigate the relationship between volume-based quantitative PET parameters and prognosis.

Materials And Methods: The authors retrospectively reviewed data of the 47 patients with Pancoast tumors who underwent initial staging by conventional imaging methods and FDG PET/CT. FDG-PET images were visually and quantitatively evaluated, and metabolic tumor volume (MTV), total lesion glycolysis, and maximum standardized uptake values of primary tumors were calculated.

Case Report: En Bloc Resection of Pancoast Tumor with Adjuvant Aortic Endograft and Chemoradiation.

Methodist Debakey Cardiovasc J 2015 Apr-Jun;11(2):140-4

Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart& Vascular Center, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, Texas.

"Pancoast" tumors frequently require a multidisciplinary approach to therapy and are still associated with high morbidity and mortality. Due to their sensitive anatomic location, complex resections and chemoradiation regimens are typically required for treatment. Those with signs of aortic invasion pose an even greater challenge, given the added risks of cardiopulmonary bypass for aortic resection and interposition. Read More

Results of surgical resection after induction chemoradiation for Pancoast tumours †.

Interact Cardiovasc Thorac Surg 2015 Jun 10;20(6):805-11; discussion 811-2. Epub 2015 Mar 10.

Department of Cardiologic, Thoracic and Vascular Sciences, Thoracic Surgery Unit, University of Padova, Padova, Italy.

Objectives: Pancoast tumour is a rare neoplasia in which the optimal therapeutic management is still controversial. The traditional treatment of Pancoast tumour (surgery, radiotherapy or a combination of both) have led to an unsatisfactory outcome due to the high rate of incomplete resection and the lack of local and systemic control. The aim of the study was to determine the efficacy of the trimodality approach. Read More
