Prostate cancer (PCa) is currently diagnosed by microscopic evaluation of biopsy samples. Since tissue assessment heavily relies on the pathologists level of expertise and interpretation criteria, it is still a subjective process with high intra- and interobserver variabilities. Computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) may have a major impact on detection and grading(More)
Metastasis to the sinonasal region do appear, but are rare. Depending on the affected anatomical area, patients might have symptoms similar to the ones presented with a primary tumour of the area. In many occasions, only a biopsy will give a final diagnosis and provide the treating physician with a pathway to follow. We present two patients with metastatic(More)
BACKGROUND Parathyroid cyst is an infrequent and unsuspected disease. There are more than 300 hundred cases reported in the world literature, a few of them are from Latin America. The experience of our centers and a review of the cases are presented. METHODS Case report of a series of patients with parathyroid cyst from our institutions according to the(More)
Malakoplakia is a granulomatous disease associated with an infectious etiology, usually involving the urinary tract. It reveals itself as a recurrent urinary tract infection (r-UTI), and in some cases, it is associated with impairment of renal function. Immunosuppression is one of its main associated factors, and it has been increasingly described in(More)
84 Resumen La hiperplasia macro nodular bilateral o hiperplasia adrenal nodular bilateral independiente de la hormona adrenocorticotrópica es una de las causas menos frecuentes de hipercortisolismo, su diagnóstico supone un reto y no se tiene claridad de cuál es la mejor aproximación terapéutica. El muestreo venoso adrenal que frecuentemente se utiliza para(More)
The primary bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia or the independent adrenocorticotropic hormone bilateral nodular adrenal hyperplasia is a rare cause hypercortisolism, its diagnosis is challenging and there is no clear way to decide the best therapeutic approach. Adrenal venous sampling is commonly used to distinguish the source of hormonal production(More)
This paper introduces a new system for the automated classification of prostatic carcinomas from biopsy images. The important components of the proposed system are (1) the new features for tissue description based on hyper-complex wavelet analysis, quaternion color ratios, and modified local binary patterns; and (2) a new framework for multi-stage learning(More)
