Adventitial cystic disease (ACD) is a rare vascular disorder that mucinous cyst is developed within adventitia of artery or vein.[1],[2] Moreover, ACD primarily affects unilateral PA and predominantly occurs in young men with the fourth or fifth decade of life.[1],[3] Depending on the location and degree of the vessel affected, there are various symptoms including claudication, rest pain, burning sensation, paresthesias, or tingling sensation.[2],[4] So, symptoms of ACD in PA are usually claudications in young men.[1],[2],[3] But, in our case, the patient was old woman complaining persisted swelling despite of anticoagulation for DVT of PV, and was diagnosed in ACD of PA.
But their roles in the disease pathogenesis are still unclear.3,9 In immunohistochemistry (IHC) low molecular weight keratin (LMWK), epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), gross cystic disease fluid protein 15 (GCDFP-15), CD15 (Leu MI) are positive, also myoepithelial cells in S100 and smooth muscle actin (SMA) are positive.4,10 Clinical differential diagnosis includes Bartholin's duct cyst or abscess, epidermal inclusion cyst, mucous cyst, fibroma, lipoma, leiomyoma, endometriosis, amelanotic melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma.1,3,4,11

These definitions have helped categorize cystic lung disease broadly into "true cystic," "cavitary," and "cystic mimics." For the purpose of this discussion, we will include and study cavitary lung disease and cystic disease mimickers under the broad umbrella of cystic lung disease.
Laparoscopic treatment of liver hydatid cystic disease has gained ground despite initial exaggerated fear of complications such as anaphylaxis.
To the best of our knowledge, no previous report has described injection of OK-432 for malignant cystic disease. We describethe injection method, injection dose, and postinjection course in the hope that this information will prove useful for future applications against malignant cystic disease.
