AbstractAbstract PDF
A nodular density was detected on a chest radiograph taken from a 57-year-old Korean woman who was visiting a hospital for a routine check. Chest computed tomography revealed a 4.8 cm lobulated mass in the right lung and another focal nodular lesion in the left lung; biopsies of both lungs revealed adenocarcinoma. We conducted DNA sequencing and peptide nucleic acid clamping to investigate the potential double primary lung cancer. The results verified that the mass in the right lung had a mutation in the epidermal growth factor receptor, whereas the nodule in the left lung had a wild-type sequence, showing that these two were genetically different cancers from one another. Thus, we demonstrate that genetic testing is useful in determining double primary lung cancer, and we herein report on this case.

BACKGROUND
AND METHODS: In order to evaluate characteristics and modulatory factors of blood pressure in peritoneal dialysis(PD), studies were conducted on the 69 patients who had underwent peritoneal equilibration test(PET). RESULTS: The results were as follows: 1) All patients received an antihypertensive drug before PD, but, 15 of 69 patients successfully quit taking the antihypertensive drug after peritoneal dialysis. 2) During peritoneal dialysis, mean arterial pressure(MAP) was significantlydecreased for the first 3 months, and this lasted for 1 year, and antihypertensive drug requirements were significantly decreased continuously up to 9 months(p<0.005). 3) After changing the modality from hemodialysis to peritoneal dialysis. MAP(mmHg, from 107.1+/-4.5 to 98.6+/-8.8, p<0.05), antihypertensive drug requirements(from 5.6+/-2.6, to 2.0+/-2.5, p<0.01) and erythropoietin dosages(Uint/week, from 4600+/-2660 to 2000+/-1630, p<0.05) were decreased. 4) Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that MAP(p<0.01) and daily ultrafiltration volume(p<0.05) can contribute to the determination of antihypertensive drug requirements. However the relationship between antihypertensive drug requirements and PET results or dialysis adequacy indices(weekly Kt/V. weekly creatinine clearance) was not revealed. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, the prescription of antihypertensive drugs should be considered according to daily ultrafiltration volume, especially during first year after initiating PD, and follow-ups for over a year may be needed.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A free-floating ball thrombus in the left atrium is a rare complication of the mitral valvular disease. A 53-year-old man was admitted for pain and paresthesia on both legs. On admission he had auscultatory sign of mitral stenosis and mitral regurgitation, and the roentgenogram of his chest revealed a slight pulmonary ve..ous congestion, enlargement of the pulmonary conus and cardiomegaly. Laboratory findings including complete blood counts, coagulation studies and blood chemistry were normal. An echocardiographic examination revealed a mitral stenosis and a free-floating ball thrombus in the left atrium. We performed the emergent open heart surgery for removal of the ball thrombus and mitral replacement successfuly with Duromedics 29 mm valve. The size of thrombus was 39 X 32 X 30 mm.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia is a rare and rapidly fatal disease characterized by proliferation of megakaryocyte series and atypical megakaryocytes in the bone marrow. Acute megakaryoblastic leukemia is suspicious when 1) megakaryocyte in peripheral blood, mixture of large and small mononuclear megakaryoblast in the bone marrow 2) cytoplasmic budding in blast 3) myelofibrosis (dense medullary overgrowth of reticulin fibers) 4) PAS (+), ANAE (+), SBB (−), peroxidase (−) and which is confirmed by platelet peroxidase oxidation on electron microscope or monoclonal antibody. A case of acute megakaryoblastic leukemia was studied morphologically and monoclonal antibody.

AbstractAbstract PDF
To establish the hematological reference values in the healthy adults visited our hospitals, following examination were done on 2823 persons by Coulter Counter Model S-plus II ; white blood cell count (WBC), red blood cell count (RBC), hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (Hct), meant corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), red cell distribution width (RDW), platelet, plateletcrit, mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW). The following results are obtained. 1) Male, mean value of WBC; 6,800±2,680 (2SD)/µl Female, mean value of WBC; 5,950±2,380 (2SD)/µl 2) Male, mean value of RBC; 428±60 (2SD)x104/µl Female, mean value of RBC; 415±56 (2SD)x104/µl 3) Male, mean value of Hb; 15.4±1.8 (2SD) g/dL Female, mean value of Hb; 13.0±1.6 (2SD) g/dL 4) Male, mean value of Hct; 45.3±5.0 (2SD)% Female, mean value of Hct; 38.2±4.6 (2SD)% 5) Male, mean value of MCV; 93.8±5.8 (2SD) fL Female, mean value of MCV; 92.2±7.4 (2SD) fL 6) Male, mean value of MCH; 31.8±2.2 (2SD) pg Female, mean value of MCH; 31.4±2.8 (2SD) pg 7) Male, mean value of MCHC; 34.0±1.2 (2SD)% Female, mean value of MCHC; 33.9±1.2 (2SD)% 8) Male, mean value of RDW; 12.7±1.0 (2SD)% Female, mean value of RDW; 12.6±1.4 (2SD)% 9) Male, mean value of Platelet; 242.9±87.8 (2SD) X103/µl Female, mean value of Platelet; 242.2±89.0 (2SD) X103/µl 10) Male, mean value of Plateletcrit; 0.201±0.076 (2SD)% Female, mean value of Plateletcrit; 0.204±0.076 (2SD)% 11) Male, mean value of MPV; 8.20±1.70 (2SD) fl Female, mean value of MPV; 8.36±1.82 (2SD) fl 12) Male, mean value of PDW; 16.1±0.8 (2SD)% Female, mean value of PDW; 16.0±0.8 (2SD)%
