IgG4-related disease is a recently recognized systemic syndrome characterized by mass-forming lesions with lymphoplasmacytic infiltration, increase in the number of IgG4(+) cells in affected tissues and elevation of serum IgG4 levels. In 2009, we were the first to report skin lesions in patients with IgG4-related disease, but no large case series has been(More)
AIMS Personalised breast cancer therapy requires pathological characterisation of tumours. The proliferative index, based on Ki67, is pivotal, but a standard method has not been established. Here we look for an easy and practical way to evaluate Ki67. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining of estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, HER2 and Ki67 (MIB-1)(More)
Herein is reported a case of pancreatic serous microcystic adenoma with extensive oncocytic change in a 73-year-old woman. Histologically the tumor consisted of numerous small cysts, separated by thin or broad fibrous septa. These cysts were lined with uniform cells having abundant eosinophilic granular cytoplasm, which was negatively or weakly stained with(More)
BACKGROUND The Ki67 labeling index (LI) reflects the proliferative activity of breast cancers and defines luminal A and B tumors; however, no detailed method to measure Ki67 has been standardized. Here, we propose a fast and easy way to evaluate Ki67. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PgR), HER2 and(More)
Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) involving an extranodal site is a diagnostic challenge. Reported herein is the case of a 67-year-old man who presented with a solitary superior mediastinal mass. The lesion was clinically suspected of malignancy including lymphoma because of its high uptake during a (67)Ga-scintigram and (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission(More)
There is evidence of a slight increase in malignant lymphoma among rheumatoid arthritis(RA)patients receiving methotrexate( MTX). Increased rates of lymphoma have been attributed to reactivation of the Epstein-Barr virus(EBV). A 72-yearold woman was admitted to our hospital for generalized lymph adenopathy. She suffered from RA and has been treated with MTX(More)
Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) have potential value for stratifying the treatment of breast cancer (BC), though their precise use remains unclear. We aimed to investigate the utility of TILs using an alternative approach in different settings. We reviewed patients with triple-negative (TN) or human epithelial growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive(More)
