BACKGROUND c-MET is an oncogene protein that plays important role in gastric carcinogenesis and has been introduced as a prognostic marker and potential therapeutic target. The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of c-MET overexpression and its relationship with clinicopathological variables in gastric cancer of Iranian population using tissue(More)
PURPOSE Immunotherapy is one of the treatment strategies for breast cancer, the most common cancer in women worldwide. In this approach, the patient's immune system is stimulated to attack microscopic tumors and control metastasis. Here, we used interferon γ-induced protein 10 (IP-10), which induces and strengthens antitumor immunity, as an(More)
PURPOSE To assess the factors assumed to be contributed in pathogenesis of primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (PANDO). METHODS In a prospective, controlled, interventional case series, 87 patients with symptomatic PANDO (case), 7 with traumatic nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) (control), 2 with congenital NLDO (control), and 70(More)
Myelolipoma is a rare mesenchymal tumor composed of an admixture of fat and bone marrow-derived hematopoietic cells. It is typically an adrenal lesion, and mediastinal location is extremely unusual. We describe a 56-year-old man with nonspecific symptoms of cough and dyspnea and no underlying disease whose chest computed tomography showed a huge (25 x 15(More)
We present a 30-year-old man admitted with generalized cutaneous lesions, fever and cough. Examination of skin biopsies of a papular lesion revealed dense neutrophilic infiltration of the upper dermis, so these lesions were diagnosed as neutrophilic dermatosis. Peripheral blood examination and bone marrow findings confirmed the diagnosis of myelodysplastic(More)
Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) or Kala-azar is a common parasitic infection among children in Iran. The records of 249 children with VL were evaluated retrospectively.

INTRODUCTION BIOMED-2 multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) protocol is a widely accepted tool for evaluation of clonality in lymphoma diagnosis. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common non- Hodgkin,s lymphoma and displays a special challenge for PCR-based clonality analysis due to a high frequency of somatic hypermutation in rearranged(More)
PURPOSE We report 5 unusual cases of exposed hydroxyapatite orbital implants that presented as pyogenic granulomas. We propose pathogenesis and histopathologic correlations. METHODS A clinicopathologic study of 5 patients with hydroxyapatite implants who presented with pyogenic granuloma. RESULTS Pyogenic granulomas were detected 1.5 to 30 months after(More)
