In most emergency situations, health professionals rely on patients to provide information about their medical history. However, in some cases patients might not be able to communicate this information, and in most countries, including the UK an on-line integrated patient record system has not been adopted. Therefore, in order to address this issue the(More)
In the UK, in emergency situations, health professionals rely on patients to provide information about their medical history. However, in some cases patients may not remember their medication, long term illnesses or allergies, or be able to communicate this information. As a national on-line integrated patient record system has not yet been established,(More)
Thirty-four cases of Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor were studied. All tumors were limited to the ovary at the time of initial surgery. Eight tumors were well differentiated, 15 were of intermediate differentiation, and 11 were poorly differentiated. Six cases contained heterologous elements. The less differentiated tumors occurred in patients with a lower median(More)
ABNORMALITIES OF THE CERVICAL EPITHELIUM ARE SET OUT IN TWO MAIN GROUPS: bland lesions which are regarded as unrelated to malignancy, and malign lesions which are considered as potential precursors of invasive carcinoma. The histological features of each condition and the cytological pattern of the corresponding cervical smear are described and correlated.(More)
A case of pseudo-sarcomatous polyps of the vagina in a pregnant woman caused anxiety because of the possible differential diagnoses of sarcoma botyroides of the vagina or mixed mesenchymal tumours of the genital tract. These polyps are rarely described in the literature and their recognition is important for clinical management.
A review is presented of the histological appearances of 38 yolk sac tumours of the ovary and four so-called embryonal carcinomas together with the associated clinical features. It is suggested that these neoplasms belong to a single taxonomic group of embryonal ovarian tumours differing only in the concomitant types of differentiation. One yolk sac tumour(More)
