Malignant pleural effusion supernatant is an alternative liquid biopsy specimen for comprehensive mutational profiling.

Thorac Cancer 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Background: The clinical utility of malignant pleural effusion (MPE) to detect mutation has been well documented; however, routine practice of the use of MPE involves collection of the cell pellet to detect mutation, and limited studies have interrogated the MPE supernatant as an alternative source of tumor-derived DNA for mutation profiling. In this study, we investigated the potential of MPE supernatant as a liquid biopsy specimen by comparing its mutation profile with that of matched MPE cell pellets, tissue, and plasma samples.

Methods: Sequencing data from 17 patients with matched lung tissue, plasma, and MPE samples were retrospectively analyzed. Read More

Routine monitoring with pleural manometry during therapeutic large-volume thoracentesis to prevent pleural-pressure-related complications: a multicentre, single-blind randomised controlled trial.

Lancet Respir Med 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Departments of Medicine, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN, USA; Department of Thoracic Surgery, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN, USA. Electronic address:

Background: In patients with non-expandable lung, removal of pleural fluid can result in excessively negative pleural pressure, which is associated with chest discomfort, pneumothorax, and re-expansion pulmonary oedema. Pleural manometry is widely used to safeguard against pressure-related complications during thoracentesis despite little evidence to support the approach. We investigated whether monitoring of pleural pressure with manometry during thoracentesis could protect against complications compared with assessment of symptoms alone. Read More

A 54-year-old Woman with Myelofibrosis and Massive Hemothorax Due to Primary Extramedullary Hematopoiesis of the Pleura.

Cureus 2018 Dec 3;10(12):e3675. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Internal Medicine, Westchester Medical Center, Valhalla, USA.

Extramedullary hematopoiesis, which represents ectopic blood cell production, is usually an incidental finding accompanying hematologic pathology. The liver and spleen are the most common sites of extramedullary hematopoiesis, but thoracic involvement is likewise observed. Pleural effusions in the setting of intrathoracic extramedullary hematopoiesis have been attributed to mechanical interactions between the pleural surface and neighboring paravertebral masses consisting of hematopoietic tissue.

Cardiac Tamponade as an Initial Manifestation of Cervical Cancer.

Case Rep Oncol Med 2019 9;2019:7524797. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo Leon, Facultad de Medicina y Hospital Universitario "Dr. José Eleuterio González", Department of Pathology, Av. Madero y Gonzalitos s/n, Colonia Mitras Centro, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, C.P. 64460, Mexico.

Cervical cancer is the second most common malignancy worldwide in women and the third most common cause of cancer death in developing countries. This type of cancer spreads mainly to the lung, the bone, and the brain; however, the pericardium is an unusual site of invasion, which is associated with a poor prognosis. We present a case of a 35-year-old woman with six months of leg edema and abnormal uterine bleeding. Read More

Indian J Nucl Med 2019 Jan-Mar;34(1):42-44

Department of Surgical Oncology, VPS Lakeshore Hospital, Kochi, Kerala, India.

Majority of ovarian cancer (OC) patients are usually diagnosed at advanced stage and present with peritoneal spread/ascites. Some patients develop pleural deposits/effusion secondary to transdiaphragmatic spread of peritoneal disease/ascites. However, pleural deposits/effusion from OC in the absence of peritoneal disease/ascites are very rare. Read More

Bilateral Pleuritis as the Initial Symptom of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: A Case Series and Literature Review.

Intern Med 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Division of Pulmonary Medicine, Thoracic Center, St. Luke's International Hospital, Japan.

We documented four cases of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) presenting with pleuritis as the initial disease manifestation. The diagnosis was challenging because, atypically, all patients were elderly and 3 of the 4 patients were men. Furthermore, SLE pleuritis, characterized by lymphocytic pleural effusion and high ADA activity, is difficult to differentiate from tuberculous pleurisy. Read More
