Definitive diagnosis of pleural disease (particularly malignancy) depends upon histological proof obtained via pleural biopsy or positive pleural fluid cytology. Image-guided sampling is now standard practice. Local Anaesthetic Thoracoscopy (LAT) has a high diagnostic yield for malignant and non-malignant disease but is not always possible in frail patients, if pleural ...

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is superior to conventional TBNA (cTBNA) in the staging of lung cancer. However, its efficiency in diagnosis of sarcoidosis when combined with endobronchial (EBB) and transbronchial lung biopsies (TBLB) has not been studied. This randomized controlled trial compares diagnostic yield of EBUS-TBNA ...

We report a rare case of mediastinal sarcoid-like reaction presenting 5 years after colon adenocarcinoma resection. The lack of clinical and biochemical features suggestive of sarcoidosis and the high (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in mediastinal adenopathy, not seen previously, led us to suspect cancer recurrence. Pathological diagnosis obtained with a thoracoscopic biopsy ...

Diagnosis of IgG4-Related Hypertrophic Pachymeningitis (IgG4-HP) relies on meningeal biopsies, because cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diagnostic biomarkers are lacking. Here, we determined whether IgG4 intrathecal production could distinguish IgG4-HP from other disorders presenting with HP (OHP). In patients with IgG4-HP, the median CSF IgG4 concentration, IgG4 Index and IgG4Loc were significantly ...

Chronic dental periapical lesions result from chronic inflammation of periapical tissues caused by continuous antigenic stimulation from infected root canals. Recent findings have suggested that T helper (Th) 1 and Th2-like cytokines are important in the pathogenesis of chronic periapical inflammatory diseases. However, the mechanisms regulating these immunoinflammatory pathways have ...
