Scapulothoracic dissociation, as manifested by lateral displacement of the scapula and acromioclavicular separation, is a previously unreported injury in which there is a complete disruption of the scapulothoracic articulation without an overlying partial or complete amputation through the soft tissue. Associated with the disruption of the scapulothoracic(More)
Scapulothoracic dissociation is a rare entity that consists of disruption of the scapulothoracic articulation. The mechanism of injury is probably traction caused by a blunt force to the shoulder girdle. This lesion is characterized by massive soft-tissue swelling of the shoulder; lateral displacement of the scapula, measured radiographically; an injury to(More)
Recently, a new indicator of vestibular otolithic function has been reported: it is a series of negative-positive myogenic potentials recorded by surface electrodes on the skin beneath the eyes in response to bone-conducted vibration (BCV) delivered to the forehead at the hairline in the midline (Fz). The potential is called the ocular vestibular-evoked(More)
A series of fine-needle aspiration biopsies performed in 635 children were reviewed. The diagnosis rendered in these patients included malignant lymphoma in 139 (21.9%), Hodgkin's disease, 25 (3.9%); neuroblastoma, 58 (9.1%); Wilms' tumor, 37 (5.8%); Ewing's sarcoma, 32 (5.0%); rhabdomyosarcoma, 25 (3.9%); retinoblastoma, 22 (3.5%); leukemia infiltrate, 33(More)
Chordoma is a distinct malignant neoplasm arising from the remnants of the notochord and occurring mostly in the fifth or sixth decade of life, and occupying most frequently the sacral area (Bibbo, Comprehensive Cytopathology 1997; p 534). Metastases of the neoplasm may occur in 10-40% of cases (Jenkins et al., Clin. Radiol. 1995;50:416-417). Because of its(More)
A series of six fine-needle aspiration biopsies from three patients with malignant rhabdoid tumor of the kidney is reviewed. The smears revealed round, polygonal, and irregularly shaped cells with large nuclei and prominent nucleoli. Some of the tumor cells contained light pink to purple cytoplasmic inclusions that correlated with the eosinophilic(More)
A series of 106 fine-needle aspiration biopsy specimens obtained from the testes of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia was reviewed retrospectively. Involvement by leukemia was seen in 34, there was no evidence of disease in 52, and the cellular sample was inadequate in 20. All aspiration smears, except those with leukemic involvement, showed a(More)
A series of testicular fine-needle aspiration biopsy specimens from 272 infertile men with azoospermia were reviewed and categorized according to morphologic patterns. These included active spermatogenesis, 14 (5%); hypospermatogenesis, 106 (39%); Sertoli cells only, 70 (26%); atrophic pattern, 52 (19%); and maturation arrest, 1 (0.36%). In 29 cases (11%)(More)
Smears from seven fine-needle aspiration biopsies from three patients with clear-cell sarcoma of the kidney were reviewed, and the findings were correlated with corresponding histopathologic appearances. In two cases, the tumor cells were polygonal to spindle-shaped and were loosely arranged in a matrix of mucoid material. The histopathologic examination of(More)
We examined the cytomorphologic features of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) specimens from 23 Wilms' tumor patients. The findings were correlated with histopathologic patterns from these tumors. The study revealed a close resemblance between the cytologic and histopathologic appearance of various cellular elements in Wilms' tumors. The major cellular(More)
