Frequently, patients' relatives ask us to provide previously translated records, CT reports, pathological reports, and other documents to verify the quality of our translations. However, we are unable to provide such records because personal medical history is confidential and cannot be disclosed to third parties.
Given the frequency of these requests from patients' families, we have scoured the internet for publicly available medical records and medical history information to use as a benchmark for translation quality.
Sample Medical Records Translation (Chinese to English)
Physical Examination: Blood pressure: 150/100 mmHg. No palpable enlargement of superficial lymph nodes was detected. Auscultation revealed normal and clear breath sounds in both lungs, without crackles or wheezes. The patient's heart rhythm was regular, and no murmurs were identified. The abdomen was soft and non-tender upon palpation. No edema was noted in either lower extremity.
Initial Diagnosis: Enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes, further investigation needed.
Abdominal CT: Multiple intrahepatic lesions observed, warranting further evaluation. Considerations include abscesses or metastases. If necessary, MRI can be performed for further assessment. Multiple small retroperitoneal lymph nodes were identified. Ultrasound examination revealed multiple lymph nodes in the bilateral supraclavicular and neck regions, with generally normal structures. .

The patient was admitted due to the discovery of a pelvic mass during a physical examination four days prior. Gynecological examination revealed a 12 x 10 cm mass palpable behind the uterus. The mass was moderately hard, poorly mobile, and non-tender. A CT scan showed a large mixed cystic-solid mass in the pelvic cavity, located behind the uterus. On April 1, 2014, the patient underwent an exploratory laparotomy and mass excision under general anesthesia. During the surgery, a large mixed cystic-solid mass, approximately 12 x 12 x 10 cm in size, was found in the peritoneum behind the uterus and to its right. The mass had a smooth surface and a complete capsule, with a dark purple color. There was no adhesion to the uterus or adnexa. The original hospital's pathological diagnosis suggested a perivascular epithelioid cell neoplasm with high-risk aggressive behavior. A pathology consultation from a tertiary hospital in Nanjing City concluded that the mass was a poorly differentiated carcinoma, most likely a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma.
Gross observation: A pelvic mass measuring 12 x 9 x 8.5 cm was identified as a cystic mass. A dark red nodule, 2.5 x 2 x 0.5 cm in size, was observed within the focal cyst wall. A nodular mass, 3.5 x 3.5 x 2.5 cm in size, was found at the posterior part of the broad ligament.
Chief Complaint: Persistent chest tightness and shortness of breath for over two months.
History of Present Illness: The patient began experiencing chest tightness and shortness of breath without any apparent triggers in early February. These symptoms worsened with physical activity and improved with rest. The patient did not report palpitations, fever, cough, or expectoration. Following admission, tests for Treponema antibody, HIV antibody/antigen, autoantibodies, antineutrophil antibodies, anti-glomerular basement membrane antibody, tuberculosis-specific T cells, and tumor markers all returned normal results. Pleural fluid culture did not reveal any bacteria, and pleural fluid smear did not show cancer cells. The pleural fluid test for Mycobacterium tuberculosis gene rpoB was negative. The patient has a history of diabetes and hypertension for over 10 years.

Medical History: The patient is a 17-year-old male who was admitted to our hospital with the chief complaint of "a retroperitoneal mass discovered during a physical examination 3 days ago." A comprehensive abdominal ultrasound using color Doppler revealed a mixed echogenic (predominantly cystic) zone in the retroperitoneal region, closely situated to the upper and middle thirds of the right kidney, and the right lobe of the liver. This mass likely originated from the right kidney. The liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen showed no apparent abnormalities. Blood flow in the portal vein was clearly visible. Unenhanced and enhanced MRI scans of the middle-upper abdomen identified a large space-occupying mass in the right-sided middle-upper abdomen, considered to be a cystic carcinoma of the right kidney.
Gross Pathology: Right kidney measured 25 x 19 x 10 cm. The cut surface displayed a cystic mass measuring 7 x 5 x 4.0 cm, filled with bloody fluid and with partial calcification of the cystic wall. The solid portion of the cystic mass was gray and gray-red in color with a crisp texture. A small amount of normal residual renal tissue was observed surrounding the mass. No obvious lymph node was present at the right renal hilum. The right adrenal gland consisted of a tissue measuring 5 x 3 x 2.5 cm with a cystic-solid cut surface and a dark brown color. Four right retroperitoneal lymph nodes were identified.
A 40-year-old female presented to the Affiliated Hospital of Xiangnan University with a 2-year history of hearing loss and tinnitus in her right ear. One month prior to her visit, the patient experienced a worsening of symptoms, including headaches and unsteady gait. A head MRI revealed an enlarged right internal auditory canal and a mixed cystic-solid nodule, which was causing significant compression of the brainstem. The patient was diagnosed with a right-sided acoustic neuroma.
Dr. Luo Zhongping, Director of the Department of Neurosurgery, led the team in discussing the case and emphasized the urgency of surgical intervention due to brainstem compression. A right-sided craniotomy for resection of the acoustic neuroma, with neurophysiological monitoring, was scheduled.
Contrast-enhanced brain MRI performed at our hospital revealed no significant abnormalities.
Bronchoscopic examination showed bronchial stenosis in the right lower lung lobe, with infiltrative changes and roughened mucosal surface, affecting the openings of the intermediate bronchus and middle lobe bronchus. A bite biopsy was performed in this region. Pathology of the right lower lobe indicated poorly differentiated carcinoma, consistent with adenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) findings were positive for CK, NapsinA, TTF1, and ALK (D5F3).
Molecular testing showed no mutations in the EGFR gene using the Super-ARMS® EGFR kit.
Fine needle biopsy pathology of the right hepatic mass confirmed adenocarcinoma. IHC results were positive for ALK (D5F3), ALK-NC (-), Napsin A, TTF1, CK7, and SP-A.
A whole-body bone scan with emission CT performed on February 16, 2016, demonstrated increased bone metabolism in multiple areas throughout the body, suggesting widespread bone metastases. Numerous radiotracer-avid foci of varying sizes and morphologies were observed in the skull, sternum, all ribs, scapulas, cervical, thoracic and lumbar vertebrae, multiple regions of the pelvis, and long bones of the extremities. Both kidneys were visualized.

The patient is a 59-year-old male admitted on April 8, 2006, due to involuntary tremors in both upper limbs for the past 3 years. The tremors began without any apparent trigger and were most noticeable at rest, worsening during periods of emotional stress, and disappearing during sleep. The patient underwent head CT and MRI scans at several hospitals, all yielding no abnormal findings. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and prescribed Madopar (levodopa-carbidopa) 125 mg, taken orally three times daily, resulting in symptom improvement. However, one week prior to admission, his symptoms worsened, accompanied by significant anxiety and panic.
The patient has no history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, or heart disease. He married at an appropriate age and had a daughter who tragically died in a car accident four years ago. His wife is in good health.
Physical examination: The patient's vital signs were stable, with a blood pressure of 110/70 mmHg. He was alert and oriented with coherent speech. His orientation and time judgment abilities were normal, although he occasionally appeared nervous and anxious. Resting tremor was observed in both upper limbs, but walking, turning, and gait were normal. Both upper and lower limbs demonstrated normal movement without any increase in muscle tone or signs of cogwheel, clasp-knife, or lead pipe rigidity. No abnormalities were found in the heart, lungs, abdomen, or nervous system. Head CT and MRI scans, as well as routine blood tests and blood chemistry tests, revealed no abnormalities.
The admission diagnosis remained Parkinson's disease, but the treatment response was suboptimal. During treatment and doctor-patient communication, the patient's limb tremors and panic worsened significantly. He experienced hallucinations, limb stiffness, a heightened sense of caution, and often felt as if a "great misfortune would befall him." Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the patient's father had suddenly passed away from illness two years prior, leaving the patient emotionally distraught and experiencing sleep disturbances for several days afterward.
Based on this information, the patient was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and treated with a combination of psychotherapy and perphenazine. After one month of treatment, the patient showed significant improvement and was considered essentially cured.
A 60-year-old woman presented with a history of intermittent epigastric pain for over a month, which had worsened over the past four days. The patient first experienced epigastric pain without any apparent triggers more than a month ago. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) performed at a local hospital revealed intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct stones. After receiving anti-infective medications and other symptomatic treatments, her symptoms improved.
On February 25, 2020 (four days prior to admission), the patient's epigastric pain recurred and was more severe than before. She sought care at a local hospital, where she was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct stones. Despite receiving symptomatic treatment, her symptoms persisted, prompting her to visit our hospital's emergency department. During this time, she also experienced intermittent hematochezia.
Past medical history: The patient underwent cholecystectomy and choledocholithotomy more than 20 years ago.

Renal Cell Carcinoma Patient with Liver Mets
A 72-year-old male presents with fatigue and shortness of breath. On initial laboratory evaluation, he is found to have a hematocrit level of 55%. His past medical history is significant for hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary artery disease, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Surgical history is only notable for cardiac stenting and tonsillectomy. He underwent contrast-enhanced CT, which revealed a large right renal mass with tumor thrombus extension into the renal vein (Slide 2) and a mass within the liver that was suspicious for a metastatic focus (Slide 3).
A Patient with Pleuritic Chest Pain and Dyspnea
A Patient with Ascites
A 52-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of increased abdominal girth and evidence for new onset ascites. About two months prior to admission she noted unexpected weight gain of 10 lbs. This was followed by ankle swelling when she stood up for long periods, and progressed to the point that her clothes became too tight. She said it felt like she was pregnant.
