Primary bone lymphoma is an uncommon malignancy that accounts for less than 5% of all primary bone tumors. The radiographic appearances of primary bone lymphoma are variable, and, because the lesion can appear near normal on plain radiographs, a second modality such as bone scintigraphy or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging should be used. Despite this(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to evaluate the 10-year treatment outcome of utilizing adjuvant high-dose whole abdominal irradiation (WAPI technique) with a pelvic/vaginal boost in patients with stage I-III endometrial carcinoma at high risk for intra-abdominopelvic recurrence, including serous-papillary and clear cell histologies.

We report two transitional cell carcinomas of the urinary bladder containing numerous osteoclast-type giant cells that stained for vimentin and acid phosphatase (with and without tartrate) and were negative for cytokeratin and lysozyme. One tumour, in a 65-year-old man, was composed of papillary transitional cell carcinoma, invasive poorly differentiated(More)
PURPOSE Clinical protocols utilizing pulsed low dose rate brachytherapy (PDR) to replace traditional continuous low dose rate brachytherapy (CLDR) employ irradiation in individual pulses given at intervals of a few hours. A critical factor in determining whether PDR will produce equivalent or greater late-occurring normal tissue toxicity is the dose per(More)
The spleen can be involved in a variety of cystic lesions ranging from cystic neoplasms and parasitic cysts to “true” and “false” cysts. Epidermoid splenic cyst is a rare true cyst that is developmental in origin. We present two young patients with such a cyst and illustrate their features on ultrasound, CT, and MRI with pathologic correlation.
Five patients with a palpable mass at presentation underwent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The final diagnosis was myositis ossificans (MO). MR imaging features, particularly after injection of gadopentetate dimeglumine, mimicked those of an inflammatory mass or neoplasm. The lesions were excised in three patients, and the images were correlated with(More)
Nephrogenic metaplasia of the urinary tract, originally thought to be a benign tumor with possible malignant potential, is commonly called nephrogenic adenoma. It predominantly affects male adults and is rarely seen in children. In this report 18 pediatric cases are reviewed and some clinical and pathologic parameters are compared with the condition in(More)
We report a case of fatal fibrosing peritonitis in a 28-year-old drug abuser. The extensive fibrosis, which was limited to the abdominal cavity, contained birefringent material. Silica was identified by spectrophotometric analysis. Silica is a component of talc (magnesium silicate) used as a drug filler. Relatively small amounts are known to induce(More)
Typical yeast-phase cells of Blastomyces dermatitidis have a characteristic appearance in tissue sections. Fungal morphologic variation occurs infrequently in the lesions of blastomycosis, yet it can complicate the differential diagnosis, particularly if fresh tissue is not available for microbiologic culture. The authors report a case of pulmonary(More)
We report a case of Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath involving the ankle, wherein spin-echo (T1- and T2-weighted), gradient-echo, and dynamic contrast-enhanced sequences were performed, and the tumor was noted to be very vascular. To the best of our knowledge, the use of gradient-echo sequences and the pattern of enhancement by time-intensity curves(More)
