Although "rudimentary meningocele" (RM) or "meningothelial hamartoma" of the skin is a seemingly recently described entity, it has been included in past reports as a variant of primary cutaneous meningioma. We document our experience with four such lesions and compare the histologic and immunohistochemical features of these cases with those of seven classic(More)
Three postmenopausal patients with giant cell arteritis involving the female genital tract are presented. None of these patients had a prior history of vasculitis. The giant cell arteritis was confined to the myometrium in one patient, involved the cervix and myometrium in another, and involved all the internal genital organs in the third patient. Based on(More)
Pilomatrixoma, a neoplasm of hair germ matrix origin, is one of the most common cutaneous appendage tumors in patients 20 years of age or younger. Our review of cutaneous adnexal tumors in the first 2 decades of life showed that pilomatric lesions accounted for approximately 75% of cases. We examined 76 tumors from 69 patients between the ages of 8 months(More)
The classification of giant cell lesions of the maxillofacial skeleton is one that remains controversial. Classifying giant cell lesions of the jaw as granulomatous based solely on location seems inappropriate. The categories of benign or malignant are more realistic. Benign lesions may then be subdivided into aggressive and nonaggressive. Multifocal giant(More)
Tricholemmal carcinoma (TLC) is a cutaneous adnexal tumor with presumed external hair sheath differentiation. In order to better understand the salient features of this neoplasm, we analyzed the histologic and clinical findings in 10 cases of TLC. Eight patients were males, and two were female; they ranged in age from 55-88 years. Each tumor occurred in(More)
BACKGROUND Increases in thyroid papillary carcinoma incidence rates have largely been attributed to heightened medical surveillance and improved diagnostics. We examined papillary carcinoma incidence in an equal-access health care system by demographics that are related to incidence. METHODS Incidence rates during 1990-2004 among white and black(More)
Antibodies directed against epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFr) impede proliferation and induce differentiation of EGFr-positive cancers. To explore the effectiveness of anti-EGFr monoclonal antibodies on acoustic neuromas (ANs), we first sought to evaluate EGFr expression by ANs. The records of all patients with the diagnosis of AN at our institution(More)
Three cases of cutaneous epithelioid angiosarcoma with solid pattern were studied by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy. The neoplasms followed a slow, protracted course with local recurrences and regional lymph node metastases. The correct histological diagnosis was delayed by the close histological simulation of carcinomas, misleading(More)
