Endodermal cysts of the central neuraxis are benign, non-neoplastic epithelium-lined cysts arising from endodermal tissue that have been displaced early in fetal life. Intracranial endodermal cysts are rare and usually located in the posterior fossa. The present study involves a 36-year-old man with a typical epithelial cyst in the posterior fossa.(More)
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is currently the most common cutaneous cancer found in humans. Although it generally shows a relatively benign course (BCC1), some cases of BCCs show "aggressive" behavior, rapidly infiltrating deeper structures, or metastasizing (BCC2). Until now, the traditional histological diagnostic criteria have failed to discriminate(More)
A case of multicystic mesothelioma of the liver with secondary involvement of the pelvic peritoneum and the inguinal region is presented. The case is of interest because of its unusual location and peculiar biological behavior.
Mucinous carcinoma of the thyroid gland is an uncommon tumour that from the histological point of view, resembles mucinous carcinoma of others sites. Although a mucinous appearance has sometimes been reported in association with cases of typical thyroid carcinoma, true mucinous carcinoma is exceptionally rare. We describe two cases of thyroid tumours with(More)
Two cases of adenomatoid tumor of the uterus of unusually large size are reported. One was 12 cm, the other 13 cm in diameter and one was located in the lateral wall and the other in the posterior wall of the uterus. Both were an unusually large or giant variant of adenomatoid tumor of the uterus. The cystic macroscopical and microscopical pattern is(More)
We describe three cases of lymph proliferative diseases characterized by the presence of lymphoma cells expressing the KSHV/HHV-8 antigen with or without EBV expression. The patients were HIV seronegative without serous effusions. One case was diagnosed as KSHV-germinotropic lymphoproliferative disorder due to the presence of atypical plasmablasts involving(More)
Hematopoietic proliferations are well known to present ectopically outside the bone marrow, either in benign or malignant form. As such, they present a distinct problem with respect to morphologic interpretation because of their uncommonality in extramedullary sites and their capacity to simulate other lesions histologically. This review considers(More)
Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is an uncommon vascular tumor of the soft tissues. Several reports have described this tumor in visceral locations such as liver, lung, and brain. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of an immunohistochemical and ultrastructural study of a primary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma occurring in the larynx.(More)
