The relation between age at first birth and the occurrence of fibrocystic breast disease of different atypia subtypes was evaluated using data from a cohort study of the health effects of oral-contraceptive use. Multivariate case-control analysis was performed on 218 parous women with biopsied fibrocystic disease and 928 parous controls. Fibrocystic breast(More)
A manic-depressive diabetic man receiving lithium carbonate therapy had massive proteinuria, which dramatically improved after the withdrawal of lithium. The authors discuss previous cases of lithium-induced nephrotic syndrome in nondiabetics and draw attention to the possibility that lithium therapy aggravates protein excretion in diabetic patients.
Riedel's struma with dense fibrous invasion of surrounding muscle and fat was found in a patient who had clinical subacute thyroiditis superimposed on primary hypothyroidism. Riedel's struma may sometimes be an uncommon stage in the more common subacute form of thyroiditis, although in our patient an unusual coincidence of subacute thyroiditis and Riedel's(More)
Infectious mononucleosis, most commonly caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), is generally a benign, self-limited illness. Occasionally, however, more severe complications may arise such as acute renal insufficiency. While subclinical renal involvement appears to be relatively common in patients with infectious mononucleosis, patients with significant renal(More)
The relationship between oral contraceptive (OC) use and occurrence of fibrocystic breast disease (FBD) of different histologic classifications was evaluated with data from a cohort study. Biopsy specimens from 232 women with FBD were classified into different atypia categories. In 96 matched pairs of OC users and nonusers, atypia scores were lower in users(More)
Eighteen patients underwent peripheral arterial embolization with Gelfoam powder for treatment of primary or metastatic hepatic neoplasms. Except for two cases in which the patients could not undergo long-term arterial infusion, all cases were treatment failures from intravenous chemotherapy, intra-arterial chemotherapy, or, in some cases, intra-arterial(More)
BACKGROUND Refractory rejection and cyclosporine (CsA)-induced nephropathy remain important causes of renal allograft loss. Previous studies demonstrated that 70-85% of the episodes of refractory acute rejection (AR) occurring in renal allograft recipients on a CsA-based immunosuppressive regimen could be salvaged by conversion to tacrolimus. No data are(More)
We report a case of bilateral angiosarcomas developing in breasts after radiation therapy. The angiosarcomas developed 7 years after the first dose and 3 years after the last dose of radiation. In addition, Paget's disease of the nipple was diagnosed in the right breast. c-neu overexpression was noted in the adenocarcinoma but not in the angiosarcoma.(More)
