Fine needle aspiration cytology is a relatively new technique in the management of palpable lesions in Ibadan. In the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan, as in most centres in Nigeria, inadequate facilities, a heavy patient load, financial constraints and an unreliable supply of basic necessities like water, often delay definitive diagnosis and(More)
Our objective was to identify risk factors for failed labour induction. From January 2001 to December 2005, we conducted a retrospective case-control study in a Nigerian University Hospital. Cases were women who failed to deliver vaginally after labour induction, and therefore had caesarean section. Controls were patients who were similarly induced and(More)
OBJECTIVE To report a case of sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy (Rosai-Dorfman disease) in an extranodal site with unusual presentation. CASE PRESENTATION A 19-year-old girl presented with bilateral upper eyelid swellings of 2 years duration due to tumor. The masses were excised and sent for histopathological examination. Microscopic(More)
AIM The aim of this paper is to present the first published case of a high-risk gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) in Kuwait. CASE PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION A thirty-six-year old Egyptian male patient presented with central upper abdominal pain of five-month duration. Clinically, there was an approximately 10 cm x 8 cm diffuse, non-tender, firm(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the diagnosis of nodular sclerosis variant of Hodgkin's lymphoma (NSHL) and to analyze cytologic features that could help in subtyping a case of Hodgkin's lymphoma into this variant. STUDY DESIGN FNAC smears of 18 histopathologically proven cases of NSHL were analyzed for a(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES The study was designed with the broad objective of determining the safety profile of artemisinin-based combination therapies amongst Nigerian population. PATIENTS AND METHODS This was a cohort event monitoring (CEM) programme involving monitoring adverse events (AEs) in malaria patients treated with either artemether-lumefantrine (AL)(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic significance of cyclin D1 expression in primary, resected stage I and II non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in Arabs. A longitudinal cohort study of 98 consecutive patients with resected stage I and II NSCLC were evaluated immunohistochemically for the expression of cyclin D1 and determined its prognostic(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the diagnostic efficacy of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the initial evaluation of thyroid nodules, with special emphasis on discrepant cytologic diagnoses. STUDY DESIGN A total of 192 thyroid fine needle aspirates with subsequent histopathologic follow-up were analyzed. The cytologic diagnoses were divided into 4(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the diagnostic accuracy offine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the diagnosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). STUDY DESIGN We selected all the cases in which a cytologic diagnosis of HL, suggestive of or suspicious for HL, or HL as the prime differential diagnosis was offered on FNAC. These cases were correlated with histopathologic(More)
The cytological diagnosis of classical papillary carcinoma is easily established based on the characteristic architectural and nuclear features. However, the follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma(FVPTC) poses a diagnostic challenge. In this study we analysed the cytological features of 14 histopathologically proven cases of FVPTC. We inferred(More)
