The article presents a case of an 85-year old man with a history of right tonsilar tumor presented with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Several lymph nodes in the patient's neck and the axilla were found on physical examination. An endoscopic ultrasonography with a catheter probe on the gastric wall was performed.

    A 47-yr-old male with gastric lipoma is presented. X-ray and endoscopic examinations revealed a submucosal tumor on the posterior wall of the gastric antrum. Endoscopic ultrasonography demonstrated the hyperechoic mass in the submucosa without continuity to the muscularis propria, by which the...

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) alone to predict and differentiate malignant from benign cystic lesions of the pancreas. METHODS: From January, 1995, to August, 1999, 98 cases of pancreatic cystic lesions were evaluated by EUS; all of...

    OBJECTIVE: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is accepted as the most accurate modality for T- and N-staging of esophageal cancer, but some malignant strictures prevent passage of the echoendoscope beyond the level of the tumor. This incomplete evaluation may decrease staging accuracy. Previous studies...
