PET/CT imaging of CSF1R in a mouse model of tuberculosis.

Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging 2022 Jun 17. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Purpose: Macrophages represent an essential means of sequestration and immune evasion for Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is characterized by dense collections of tissue-specific and recruited macrophages, both of which abundantly express CSF1R on their outer surface. 4-Cyano-N-(5-(1-(dimethylglycyl)piperidin-4-yl)-2',3',4',5'-tetrahydro-[1,1'-biphenyl]-2-yl)-1H-imidazole-2-carboxamide (JNJ-28312141) is a reported high affinity, CSF1R-selective antagonist.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, University Hospitals Birmingham, UHB Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Mindelsohn Way, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TH, England, UK.

Background: Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is a malformation of the lungs resulting in lung tissue lacking direct communication to the tracheobronchial tree. Most cases demonstrate systemic arterial blood supply from the descending thoracic aorta, the abdominal aorta, celiac axis or splenic artery and venous drainage via the pulmonary veins with occasional drainage into azygos vein. BPS is considered a childhood disease and accounts for 0. Read More

Intralobar pulmonary sequestration with aspergillus infection and elevated serum CA19-9 and CA242: a case report.

Transl Cancer Res 2021 Feb;10(2):1169-1176

Department of Pathology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital dysplasia, and intralobar pulmonary sequestration was caused by aspergillus infection are more uncommon. The significant increase of serum CA19-9 and CA242 often indicates malignant tumors of the pancreas, biliary tract and gastrointestinal tract, but it is different in this case we reported. We present a case of a 36-year-old woman with intralobar pulmonary sequestration with aspergillus infection and elevated serum tumor markers CA19-9 and CA242. Read More

Klinik für Thoraxchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Medizinische Fakultät, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Freiburg, Deutschland.

Congenital pulmonary malformations comprise a heterogenous group of rare developmental diseases. The most common malformations are the tracheal bronchus, bronchial atresia, bronchogenic cyst, pulmonary sequestration, congenital lobar emphysema, and congenital pulmonary airway malformation. Due to their space-consuming effect, patients suffer early postnatal respiratory distress which generally requires immediate surgical resection. Read More

Congenital lung lesions: a radiographic pattern approach.

Pediatr Radiol 2022 Apr 30;52(4):622-636. Epub 2021 Oct 30.

Division of Pediatric Radiology, Department of Radiology, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, 550 First Ave., New York, NY, 10016, USA.

Congenital lung malformations represent a spectrum of abnormalities that can overlap in imaging appearance and frequently coexist in the same child. Imaging diagnosis in the neonatal period can be challenging; however, the recognition of several archetypal radiographic patterns can aid in narrowing the differential diagnosis. Major radiographic archetypes include (1) hyperlucent lung, (2) pulmonary cysts, (3) focal opacity and (4) normal radiograph. Read More

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Thoracic Surgery Unit, Santa Maria della Misericordia Hospital, Udine, Italy.

Pulmonary sequestrations are rare congenital malformations. They are often located in the lower lobes, and they are supplied by an aberrant systemic vessel arising from the thoracic aorta or abdominal arteries. These pulmonary malformations are divided into intra- and extralobar sequestrations, depending on the respective lack or presence of an independent pleural covering. Read More

Division of Paediatric Cardiology, Children's Medical Center, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan.

The condition of partial anomalous origin of a branch pulmonary artery from the descending aorta could be found in several diseases and should be carefully differentiated. We report an unusual case of anomalous systemic arterial supply to normal basal segments of the left lower lung and another case of intralobar pulmonary sequestration. These two cases were treated successfully by transarterial embolisation using the Amplatzer Vascular Plug. Read More

A 21-year-old man who had a history of pneumonia twice presented with chest discomfort. Computed tomography( CT) revealed dilatation of the atretic bronchus that was not continuous with the proximal one, and surrounding hyper-lucent lung fields in the outer and mediastinal sides of the right basal segment, and the absence of B10b+c. CT also demonstrated the presence of A10b+c in the former field and the aberrant artery from the inferior phrenic artery in the latter. Read More

Narrative review of congenital lung lesions.

Shaun M Kunisaki

Transl Pediatr 2021 May;10(5):1418-1431

Division of General Pediatric Surgery, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

This article reviews the contemporary diagnosis and management of antenatally diagnosed congenital lung lesions. These anomalies, which include congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) (formerly congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation), bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS), bronchogenic cyst, and congenital lobar emphysema (CLE), are relatively rare but are increasingly encountered by clinicians because of the improved resolution and enhanced sensitivity of fetal ultrasound. Serial assessment of these lesions throughout pregnancy remains the norm rather than the exception. Read More

Pulmonary sequestration with Aspergillus infection presenting as massive hemoptysis and hemothorax with highly elevated carcinoembryonic antigen in pleural effusion that mimics advanced lung malignancy.

Eur J Med Res 2021 May 25;26(1):48. Epub 2021 May 25.

Department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, 610046, Sichuan, China.

Background: Pulmonary sequestration (PS) associated with massive hemoptysis, hemothorax, and elevated tumor markers or even lung malignancy has been reported in several studies. These clinical features combined with lung lesions on chest imaging are sometimes hard to differentiate from lung malignancies and often complicate the diagnostic procedure.

Case Presentation: A 45-year-old man with PS presented with massive hemoptysis, hemothorax, and extremely elevated carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in pleural effusion was initially misdiagnosed with advanced lung carcinoma, but was ultimately diagnosed with PS with Aspergillus infection. Read More
