Bronchogenic cyst is not a rare disease, but cases of bronchogenic cyst in the diaphragm are rare. We report a case of intraphrenic bronchogenic cyst. A 68-year-old woman was pointed out a 30 mm tumor on the left diaphragm by chest computed tomography (CT) 12 years ago. Because the size of the tumor had been increasing for 12 years, she was hospitalized for surgery. The tumor in the left diaphragm was removed by thoracotomy. Histologically, the tumor was diagnosed as a intraphrenic bronchogenic cyst.
- Clinical presentations and outcomes in congenital pulmonary malformations: a 25-year retrospective study in Thailand. [Journal Article]
- PIPediatr Int 2019 Jul 02
- CONCLUSIONS: Respiratory distress is the important clinical feature in neonates and infants, whereas the signs of pulmonary infection usually occur in children over 1 year old. Good outcomes usually occur after surgery but need long-term follow-up including lung function assessment. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Advances in prenatal and postnatal diagnosis, perioperative management, and postoperative care have dramatically increased the number of scientific reports on congenital thoracic malformations (CTM). Nearly all CTM are detected prior to birth, generally by antenatal ultrasound. After delivery, most infants do well and remain asymptomatic for a long time. However, complications may occur beyond infancy, including in adolescence and adulthood. Prenatal diagnosis is sometimes missed and detection may occur later, either by chance or because of unexplained recurrent or persistent respiratory symptoms or signs, with difficult implications for family counseling and substantial delay in surgical planning. Although landmark studies have been published, postnatal management of asymptomatic children is still controversial and needs a resolution. Our aim is to provide a focused overview on a number of unresolved issues arising from the lack of an evidence-based consensus on the management of patients with CTM. We summarized findings from current literature, with a particular emphasis on the vigorous controversies on the type and timing of diagnostic procedures, treatments and the still obscure relationship between CTM and malignancies, a matter of great concern for both families and physicians. We also present an algorithm for the assessment and follow-up of CTM detected either in the antenatal or postnatal period. A standardized approach across Europe, based on a multidisciplinary team, is urgently needed for achieving an evidence-based management protocol for CTM.

Nonmetastatic hepatic dysfunction known as Stauffer's syndrome is a rare entity. It is commonly associated with clear cell carcinoma of kidney. Rarely it has been reported in cases of prostatic carcinoma, bronchogenic tumor and lymphoproliferative diseases. Stauffer s syndrome presents as elevated alkaline phosphatase, aminotransferases, and prolonged prothrombin time without jaundice. However a very rare variant of Stauffer's syndrome presenting with jaundice has been reported in few case reports of clear cell carcinoma of kidney. But such a presentation in cases of renal sarcomas has not been reported so far. Here we report a unique case of primary synovial sarcoma of kidney presenting as nonmetastatic cholestatic jaundice.

- JFJ Family Med Prim Care 2019; 8(5):1725-1729
- CONCLUSIONS: Determination of CEA in the BALF and serum may be helpful as a screening tool for further workup for malignancy.
- Stauffer's Syndrome in Patient with Metastatic Prostate Cancer. [Case Reports]
- CRCase Rep Urol 2019; 2019:9745301
- CONCLUSIONS: Stauffer syndrome should be kept in mind in patients who present with cholestasis with no underlying cause. We advise to exclude any possible causes of cholestasis, for example, obstruction of bile duct.

Unilateral absence of the pulmonary artery (UAPA) represents a rare condition that is often associated with cardiac congenital abnormalities but can also be relatively asymptomatic and indolent. There is a lack of consensus regarding the management of UAPA. However, in the setting of associated complications and ongoing infection, pulmonary resection is advocated. Although rare, the association between UAPA and bronchogenic carcinoma has been previously reported in seven published cases. In the majority of these, anatomic lung resection (most commonly with pneumonectomy) was curative. We present the first reported case of ipsilateral metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer- (NSCLC-) associated UAPA in a 47-year-old patient with ventilator-dependent hypoxic respiratory failure and bronchorrhea, who had been lost to follow-up for 8 years. Initial investigations did not yield evidence of malignancy, and confirmation of metastatic disease was made intraoperatively at the time of thoracotomy. The findings demonstrated evidence of diffuse metastatic pleural disease with lymphangitic carcinomatosis and superimposed infection. The patient was palliated and passed away shortly thereafter. In the setting of UAPA, clinicians should have a high index of suspicion for the possibility of malignancy, and if proven, they should consider early resection following appropriate staging.

- Risk prediction models for lung cancer: Perspectives and dissemination. [Journal Article]
- CJChin J Cancer Res 2019; 31(2):316-328
- CONCLUSIONS: The prediction accuracy of the models was high overall, indicating that it is feasible to use models for high-risk population prediction. However, the process of model development and reporting is not optimal with a high risk of bias. This risk affects prediction accuracy, influencing the promotion and further development of the model. In view of this, model developers need to be more attentive to bias risk control and validity verification in the development of models.
