AIM: The long-term effects of radiosurgery of vestibular schwannomas were investigated in a group of consecutively treated patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between 1995 and 2001, 26 patients (median age: 67, range: 30-82) with a vestibular schwannoma were treated by Linac-based stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). The median follow-up was 49 months (16-85 months). Only progressive tumours were treated. The median size of tumours was 18 mm (range 9-30 mm). Before SRS, 11 patients had a useful hearing (Gardner-Robertson classes 1 and 2). Single doses of 10-14 Gy were prescribed at the 80% isodose at the tumour margin. The follow-up consisted of regular imaging with MRI the first 3-6 months after the intervention, followed by additional yearly MRIs, a hearing test and a neurological examination. RESULT: The 5-year-probability of tumour control (defined as stabilization or decrease in size) was 95%. Five-year-probability of preservation of hearing and facial nerve function was 96% and 100%, respectively. Hearing was preserved in 10 out of 11 patients who had a normal or useful hearing at the time of treatment. Mild and transient trigeminal toxicity occurred in 2 (8%) patients. It appeared to be significantly correlated to the dose used (p=0.044). However, only a tendency to significance could be demonstrated in the relationship between the two factors when using the Cox analysis (hazard ratio=1.7; 95% CI: 0.7-3.9; p=0.23). CONCLUSIONS: With the doses used, our study demonstrates that SRS provides an equivalent tumour control rate when compared to surgery, as well as on a long-term basis, an excellent preservation of the facial and the acoustic nerves. Although no permanent trigeminal toxicity was observed, our data confirm that doses below 14 Gy can avoid transient dysesthesias. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the clinical usefulness of FDG-PET (fluoro-2-deoxy-glucose-positron emission tomography) in the detection of lymph node involvement and recurrences in patients with head and neck cancer. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review of 38 patients with biopsy-proven head and neck cancers who underwent clinical, computed tomography (CT), and FDG-PET examinations. Twenty-five patients were studied prior to therapy and 13 patients were evaluated for disease recurrence. METHODS: All patients were operated and clinical data, CT, and FDG-PET results were correlated with histopathological findings. RESULTS: All primary tumors in 25 patients were detected, with the exception of one small superficial localization of the epiglottis. Histopathological examination showed lymph node involvement in 10 patients; PET detected lymph node involvement in five. FDG-PET found one case of nodal disease not identified by clinical and CT examination. With so few cases, this could be anecdotal. Five false-negative results (microscopic lymph node involvement) and two false positives were noted. Twelve of 13 patients with recurrent disease were correctly identified with FDG-PET. FDG-PET was the only imaging technique to identify local recurrence in two patients and lymph node involvement in two others. One false-positive result occurred in a patient with a foreign body granuloma. CONCLUSIONS: FDG-PET is a useful diagnostic modality for the detection of recurrent tumors and, in selected cases, precise lymph node involvement. The best way to further investigate the utility of clinical FDG-PET is in the follow-up of treated patients. [less ▲]

We report a patient with poor-prognosis myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) after successful treatment of lymphoma, who was given an allogeneic BMT, engrafted and achieved complete remission, but later had a relapse of his MDS with complete disappearance of donor haemopoiesis. After two episodes of CMV pneumonia and continued prophylactic use of ganciclovir thereafter, he experienced a spontaneous complete disappearance of all signs of MDS, including myelofibrosis, and a complete return to donor haemopoiesis. This case is the first one to suggest a graft-versus-leukaemia effect (GVL) in MDS patients. It depicts the complex relationship between GVL, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and graft rejection. It could also constitute a clinical illustration of the possible antileukaemic effect of CMV infection and its treatment with ganciclovir. [less ▲]

A 79-year-old woman of Mediterranean ascent suffered from corticosteroid-dependent chronic obstructive lung disease, hypogammaglobulinemia (IgG 1 and 2), decreased CD16 natural killer cell function and non-HIV related CD4 and CD8 lymphopenia. Such immunodeficiency could be either a variant of common variable immunodeficiency or an early stage of the idiopathic CD4 + T lymphocytopenia syndrome. She developed bilateral lesions of Kaposi's sarcoma on the lower extremities resembling the classic European type of the disease. The tumors contained both CD34 + and Factor XIIIa + cells. The HLA-DR5 haplotype was not found. Weekly low intravenous dosages of vinblastine improved the lesions but the patient died from pontic infarction. [less ▲]

Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH) is a rare neutrophilic dermatosis occurring most frequently during induction chemotherapy for a variety of malignancies. We report a case of NEH in a 41-year-old woman with acute myeloblastic leukemia under daunorubicin, cytarabine and etoposide chemotherapy. She developed red, tender and painful nodules on a shoulder. The lesions resolved spontaneously. Histological examination is mandatory as the clinical presentation of this dermatosis is highly polymorphic. Leukemia cutis, sepsis, deep fungal infection and Sweet's syndrome must be excluded as these implicate different therapies. [less ▲]

Owing to their shape, accurately calibrated microspheres appear to be very suitable material for distal embolization. Moreover, the biocompatible (D,L) polylactide (PLA) microspheres possess two other valuable advantages: easy adjustment of their biodegradation rate, and incorporation of chemotherapeutic agents during their production. The authors describe the preparation of these (D,L) PLA microspheres and their clinical applications as a preliminary step to arterial chemoembolization. [less ▲]

Two cases of Lhermitte-Duclos disease confirmed by biopsy are reported. Review of the 58 published cases shows that the disease can manifest itself only by signs of increased intracranial pressure. Cerebellar symptoms are not constant. Computed tomographic (CT) scans suggest the diagnosis by showing a posterior fossa lesion, iso- and hypodense, partially calcified, and not enhanced by contrast medium. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) seems to define limits of the lesion better than CT scanning and could improve the surgical approach. Surgical excision of the lesion is the only satisfactory treatment. The postoperative prognosis is usually favorable. [less ▲]
