Patz EF, Lowe VJ, Goodman PC, et al: Thoracic nodal staging with PET imaging with 18 FDG in patients with Bronchogenic carcinoma
Although initially proposed as a palliative tool in the management of end-stage esophageal or bronchogenic carcinoma
, it has emerged as a modality which can effectively treat early as well as advanced endoluminal tumors, PDT has been incorporated into all aspects of our practice, including palliation, induction therapy, and definitive intervention for early-stage cancers of the aerodigestive tract.
The clinical behavior of "mixed" small cell/large cell bronchogenic carcinoma
compared to "pure" small cell subtypes.
Flexible transbronchial needle aspiration for staging of bronchogenic carcinoma
The radiograph showed a 4-cm mass in the left lung, which the radiologist reported as bronchogenic carcinoma
It still is used today for stage III and IV Hodgkin's disease and other hematologic cancers, including polycythemia vera and mycoses fungoides, and bronchogenic carcinoma
It was found that serum Cu level was increased in bronchogenic carcinoma
This case illustrates the difficulties encountered in the diagnosis of an endobronchial foreign body where the presentation is delayed, with little initial history of aspiration, the potential confusion with the endobronchial appearance of bronchogenic carcinoma
and the rare presentation of recurrent empyema.
Lessons to be learned: a case study approach: metastatic bronchogenic carcinoma
presenting as a gluteal abscess.
While any organ may be involved, lung involvement is most common, manifesting either as a lobar infiltrate resembling a bacterial pneumonia, a miliary infiltration similar to tuberculosis, or as a large mass that is initially suspected of being a bronchogenic carcinoma
Thursday morning the internist received the radiologist's written X-ray report with a diagnosis of "probable bronchogenic carcinoma
