Background: Hemoptysis can cause a life-threatening condition and often needs to be treated urgently. Recently, interventional devices and techniques such as CT angiography were made dramatically an improvement, therefore, we could have performed super selective BAE (ssBAE) which was thinner peripheral artery embolization. Objectives: We conducted a prospective observational study under the hypothesis that elective ssBAE may lead to attributing to the improvement of the hemostasis effect compare...

Introduction: Nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) pleuritis, pleural effusion combined with NTM lung disease (NTM-LD), has not been previously described as a common manifestation of NTM infections. Aims: This study aimed to investigate the clinical features and prognosis of NTM pleuritis. Methods: A retrospective observational study was performed including patients with NTM pleuritis fromJanuary 2001 to December 2017 at 8 hospitals. NTM pleuritis was defined as a positive culture of NTM from pleu...

Pleuroscopy under local anesthesia is performed by physicians in case with unexplained pleural effusion. There are limits to the bending angle and image resolution of conventional fiberscopes. Olympus Corporation and 4 Japanese institutions, including our hospital, developed a new pleuroscope for use under local anesthesia. Compared to the conventional pleuroscope (LTF-260; Olympus, Japan), the new pleuroscope (LTF-Y0032; Olympus, Japan) comes with an improved bending angle from 160 degrees to 1...

A 60-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of massive hemoptysis with acute respiratory failure. Since six months ago, he noticed gradual worsening of hemoptysis and was transferred to our hospital. Chest computed tomography showed a nodular lesion with cavitation in the left upper lobe and surrounding ground-glass opacification. Initially, a hemostatic agent was administered, but we eventually performed bronchial artery embolization (BAE) by ourselves due to persistent hemoptysis. A...

Abstract Background The QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus (QFT-Plus) was introduced in 2015 as a new generation of interferon-gamma release assays (IGRAs) designed to detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (TB). Examination of its diagnostic accuracy is crucial before it is launched in Japan. Method We examined 99 patients with laboratory-confirmed active TB (patients) and 117 healthy volunteers with no risk of TB infection (controls) at a medical center in Tokyo, Japan. Blood samples were collected...

Abstract Little information exists on the frequency, severity, and timing of first-line anti-tuberculosis drug-related adverse events (TB-AEs) in HIV-tuberculosis coinfected (HIV-TB) patients in the antiretroviral therapy (ART) era. This matched-cohort study included HIV-TB patients as cases and HIV-uninfected tuberculosis (non-HIV-TB) patients as controls. Tuberculosis was culture-confirmed in both groups. Cases were matched to controls in a 1:4 ratio on age, sex, and year of diagnosis. TB-AEs ...

: In Japan, 20-50 cases of leptospirosis are reported annually, typically involving farmers or returnees from tropical areas. Here, we report on 5 indigenous leptospirosis cases that occurred in the Tokyo urban area. All patients were men (mean age, 66.4 ± 4.6 [SD] years) and presented with clinical features that included high fever, acute kidney injury, and jaundice. Three patients presented with pulmonary infiltration and ground-glass opacity on admission. Two of the 5 patients were intubated ...
