However, in spite of a perception of a relatively high level of sensitivity for TFNAB for peripheral lesions
, they selected bronchoscopy most frequently as their first diagnostic test.
In summary, PCD is a distinct clinical entity with ring scotomas, outer retinal attenuation relatively sparing the foveola, macular hyperautofluorescence with bull's eye lesions, and variable peripheral lesions
. However, the etiology remains unknown.
We know it can be instigated by central and peripheral lesions
and that these could be early in the disease course."
By comparison, whole-body MRA not only provides clear images of coronary-artery aneurysms, but also identifies peripheral lesions
occurring outside the viewing field of standard sonographic imaging studies, said Dr.
The study results suggest that whole-body MRA is useful in Kawasaki disease because it can help visualize the occurrence of coronary and peripheral lesions
as well as "guide more aggressive therapy with steroids, anticoagulants, and antiplatelet/vasodilator drugs," he said.
patients whose peripheral lesions
did not threaten the macula were followed without treatment and their lesions showed no progression.
So we diagnosed 76.9% of large central, 50% of small central, 30.4% of large peripheral and 20% of small peripheral lesions
On initial CT scan, a total of 29 subjects were found to have lung cancer (27 peripheral lesions
and 2 central lesions), for a total prevalence of 2.9%.
In the previous reports the peripheral lesions
are only due to dellen or drug toxicity.
Cortical tubers are often seen as low-attenuating peripheral lesions
. Subependymal nodules appear as localized projections into the ventricular cavity and may enhance after the intravenous contrast administration, although contrast enhancement is more difficult to recognize calcified lesions.
