Malignant Teratocarcinosarcoma


Presentation

  • Esthesioneuroblastoma recurrence presenting as a syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion. Head Neck. 2006 ;28(12): 1142 - 1146. Google Scholar Medline ISI 26. Renneboog, B, Decaux, G.[journals.sagepub.com]
Weakness
  • The patient complained of bleeding from nose, nasal obstruction, and generalized weakness for last two months. Tumor was completely removed by Caldwell-Luc operation and postoperative radiation therapy was given.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hypertension
  • Chronic syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion and hypertension in a patient with olfactory neuroblastoma: evidence of ectopic production of arginine vasopressin by the tumor. Arch Intern Med. 1986 ;146(9): 1731 - 1735.[journals.sagepub.com]
Suggestibility
  • These findings suggest the derivation of divergent components from common progenitor cells. Although the cellular atypia of the primary lesion was inconspicuous, the recurrent tumors became anaplastic and mitotically active.[wwww.unboundmedicine.com]
Epistaxis
  • We report a case of SNTCS arising in the nasal cavity of a 71-year-old male who complained of nasal obstruction and epistaxis.[wwww.unboundmedicine.com]
Generalized Seizure
  • Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the ethmoid sinuses presenting with generalized seizure and syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion: a case report and review of literature. Am J Otolaryngol. 2009 ;30(1): 54 - 57.[journals.sagepub.com]
Seizure
  • Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the ethmoid sinuses presenting with generalized seizure and syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion: a case report and review of literature. Am J Otolaryngol. 2009 ;30(1): 54 - 57.[journals.sagepub.com]

Workup

Hyponatremia
  • Hyponatremia secondary to olfactory neuroblastoma. Arch Otolaryngol. 1983 ;109(8): 449 - 462. Google Scholar Medline 18. Cullen, MJ, Cusack, DA, O’Briain, DS.[journals.sagepub.com]
