A case of cervical adenocarcinoma arising in diffuse mesonephric hyperplasia is presented. The hyperplastic and neoplastic tubules showed focal endocrine cell differentiation. Endocrine cells stained with the Grimelius technique, and were immunoreactive for chromogranin and serotonin. Antisera to additional specific hormones were negative. The natural(More)
It has been suggested that the coagulation defect in haemophilia A protects these patients from coronary artery disease. We report two patients with severe haemophilia, who each had severe atheroma localised to the coronary arteries. Both patients had received only small amounts of factor VIII concentrates in their lifetime because of various social(More)
The cytological and histological findings of a case of breast carcinoma with osteoclast-like giant cells are presented. A fine needle aspiration specimen demonstrated the characteristic combination of malignant epithelium and reactive multinucleated cells and enabled identification of this rare variant of breast cancer. Immunocytochemical studies using the(More)
Immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) gene rearrangement analysis was performed on 27 fine needle aspiration (FNA) specimens (13 reactive hyperplasia, 11 B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (B-NHL), one Hodgkin's disease and two suspicious of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma). Satisfactory amplification was achieved in 23/27 cases. A polyclonal pattern was seen in 14 cases (11(More)

The cervical cytology and histology specimens from 200 patients referred to colposcopy with borderline nuclear abnormality were reviewed. Human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated changes were identified in 103 of 200 (53%) referral smears and in 139 of 150 (91%) biopsy specimens. Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) was less frequently diagnosed on review(More)
