An Unusual Case of Nasopharyngial Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma with In- tracranial and Orbital Extension: A Challenge for Innovative Conformal Radiotherapy Techniques
Adenoid cystic carcinoma of nasopharynx is rare. When tumor is resectable, surgery alone or followed by radiotherapy is frequently used for treatment. In the other hand, when tumor is not resectable, only radiotherapy can allow for a protracted local control obtaining. However, achievement of an optimal dose distribution is not always easy due to the location and the extent of the tumor.
In this retrospective study, we aimed to assess the predictive factors for bowel resection due to Strangulated Small Bowel Obstruction (SSBO).
Can Lung Ultrasound in Patients with Fever of Unknown Origin Detect Early Signs of COVID-19 Pneumonia?
The increasing interest in Lung Ultrasound (LUS) over the last years led to a great diffusion and better experience in using this technique, which became an essential tool for clinicians. During the current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, LUS is being extensively applied to the evaluation and monitoring of lung damage in infected patients, improving their management in various clinical settings.
The incidence of synchronous lung cancer and colorectal cancer is very rare. Therefore, physicians might lead to misdiagnosis as colorectal cancer with lung metastasis when lung lesion is found in a patient with colorectal cancer.
