  • Tuberc Respir Dis.
  • 2013 Nov;75(5):218-221.
This report describes a rare case of a patient with splenic tuberculosis (TB) who developed spontaneous splenic rupture after 10 weeks of antituberculous chemotherapy. The patient responded well to the...
Spontaneous Regression of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer in a Patient with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: A Case Report

Hwang ED, Kim YJ, Leem AY, Ji AY, Choi Y, Jung JY, Kim SK, Chang J, Park JH, Park SC

  • Tuberc Respir Dis.
  • 2013 Nov;75(5):214-217.
Treatment of lung cancer in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is difficult because the mortality rate after surgery or chemotherapy is high for these patients. Spontaneous regression of cancer...
An Unusual Case of Superior Vena Cava Syndrome Caused by the Intravascular Invasion of an Invasive Thymoma

Kim HJ, Cho SY, Cho WH, Lee DH, Lim DH, Seo PW, Park MH, Lee W, Lee JH, Kim DH

  • Tuberc Respir Dis.
  • 2013 Nov;75(5):210-213.
Superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS) is usually caused by extrinsic compression or invasion of the superior vena cava (SVC) by malignant tumors involving mediastinal structures. Although thymomas are well-known causes...
Effect of Prunetin on TNF-alpha-Induced MUC5AC Mucin Gene Expression, Production, Degradation of IkappaB and Translocation of NF-kappaB p65 in Human Airway Epithelial Cells
