    Incidental detection of prostate-specific antigen-negative metastatic prostate cancer initially presented with solitary pulmonary nodule on fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography
    (2015-01-01) ERDOĞAN, EZGİ BAŞAK; Buyukpinarbasili, NUR; ZİYADE, SEDAT; AKMAN, Tolga; TÜRK, HACI MEHMET; AYDIN, MEHMET; ERDOĞAN, EZGİ BAŞAK; BÜYÜKPINARBAŞILI, NUR; ZİYADE, SEDAT; TÜRK, HACI MEHMET; AYDIN, MEHMET
    A 71-year-old male patient with solitary pulmonary nodule underwent fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) showing slightly increased FDG uptake in this nodule. In addition, PET/CT detected hypermetabolic sclerotic bone lesions in the right second rib and 7(th) thoracic vertebrae, which were interpreted as possible metastases, and mildly increased FDG uptake in the prostate gland highly suspicious of malignancy. The patient's prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level was within normal range (3.8 ng/dL). The histopathological examination of the lung nodule and right second rib lesion proved metastases from prostate cancer, then the prostate biopsy-confirmed prostate adenocarcinoma. The unique feature of this case is to emphasize the importance of performing PET/CT for solitary pulmonary nodule in detecting PSA-negative metastatic prostate cancer. This case indicated that it should be kept in mind that, even if the PSA is negative, a lung metastasis of prostate cancer may be an underlying cause in patients evaluated for solitary pulmonary nodule by FDG PET/CT.

    Sternal metastasis from uterine leiomyosarcoma treated by near-total sternectomy and reconstruction with titanium sternal stabilization and fixation system
    (2015-01-01) Soysal, Omer; ERGUN, Selma Sonmez; Ziyade, SEDAT; Buyukpinarbasili, NUR; Akdemir, OSMAN CEMİL; SOYSAL, ÖMER; ZİYADE, SEDAT; ERGÜN, SELMA; BÜYÜKPINARBAŞILI, NUR; AKDEMİR, OSMAN CEMİL
    Uterine leiomyosarcomas are rare soft tissue neoplasms. Although they have a tendency to metastasize to distant organs, most commonly to the lung, liver and brain, rarely, sternal metastasis from a uterine leiomyosarcoma can occur. In this article, we report a 50-year-old female patient whose uterine leiomyosarcoma was treated with total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salphingo-oopherectomy, and who developed sternal metastasis five years later, which was completely resected and successfully repaired during the same session.
