BACKGROUND Short-term exposure to ozone and nitrogen dioxide is a risk factor for acute exacerbation (AE) of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (AE-IPF). The comprehensive roles of exposure to fine particulate matter in AE-IPF remain unclear. We aim to investigate the association of short-term exposure to fine particulate matter with the incidence of AE-IPF and to determine the exposure-risk time window during 3 months before the diagnosis of AE-IPF. METHODS IPF patients were retrospectively identifi...

PURPOSE To evaluate computed tomography (CT) findings of nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) based on the current classification of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs) and elucidate a characteristic of previously diagnosed NSIP excluded from the current classification. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 74 patients with biopsy-proven NSIP (idiopathic NSIP [I-NSIP], 39 patients; NSIP associated with connective tissue disease [CTD-NSIP], 35 patients). Among patients who were comp...

A 54-year-old woman developed drop head syndrome (DHS), Raynaud's phenomenon and creatine kinase (CK) elevation. She did not meet the international classification criteria of dermatomyositis/polymyositis, as we observed no muscle weakness, grasping pain or electromyography abnormality in her limbs, and anti-aminoacyl tRNA synthetase (ARS) antibody was negative. Cervical magnetic resonance imaging and a muscle biopsy of the trapezius muscle revealed myositis findings as the only clinical observat...

A 71-year-old woman being treated with methotrexate (MTX) and tacrolimus (TAC) for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was admitted to our hospital and underwent surgery for gastric perforation and peritonitis. An endoscopic examination six days post-surgery showed an extensive ulcer in the stomach, and a biopsy revealed diffused large B-cell lymphoma. We diagnosed her with immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD) and discontinued the MTX and TAC. She underwent gastrectomy due to ste...

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a soft-tissue neoplasm of intermediate malignant potential, presenting a wide histopathological spectrum. Poorer prognosis of hemangiopericytoma of the central nervous system (CNS), hypoglycemic SFT, and dedifferentiation are well-known characters of SFT, but their clinical significance were not demonstrated enough by large-sized study. Here, the clinicopathological features of SFTs are reviewed and the relationship between genetics and clinicopathological feature...

Abstract Background Pulmonary interstitial emphysema is a rare, abnormal condition in which air pressure from the alveolar airspace tears the adjacent interstitial tissues of the lung and causes the formation of cystic spaces. Pulmonary interstitial emphysema is a known indication for mechanical ventilation in premature infants with neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, and it can be observed in various types of interstitial lung disease. Nevertheless, its pathogenesis and clinical impact rema...

Thoracic diseases in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), especially interstitial pneumonia (SLE-IP), are rare and have been poorly studied. The aims of this multicentre study were to evaluate SLE-IP and elucidate its clinical characteristics and prognosis. Fifty-five patients with SLE-IP who had attended the respiratory departments of participating hospitals were retrospectively evaluated in this multicentre study. Clinical information, high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), a...

Multidisciplinary discussion (MDD) requiring close communication between specialists (clinicians, radiologists, and pathologists) is the gold standard for the diagnosis of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs). However, MDD by specialists is not always feasible because they are often separated by time and location. An online database would facilitate data sharing and MDD. Our aims were to develop a nationwide cloud-based integrated database containing the clinical, radiologic, and pathologic...
