A case of non-invasive transitional cell tumours in the vagina in a 62-year-old woman is presented. Earlier, the patient had a left nephroureterectomy and a cystectomy performed due to invasive transitional cell tumours. The tumours in the vagina were located in an otherwise normal stratified squamous epithelium.
Ultrasound-guided, fine-needle tissue biopsies were performed in 60 suspected parathyroid tumours in 55 consecutive patients with biochemically proven hyperparathyroidism. The specimens were randomly arranged and re-read "blind" by two pathologists. The interobserver agreement, corrected for chance agreement, was 0.92 (= kappa coefficient). Twenty-three of(More)
Twenty of 31 consecutive ultrasound examined patients with primary hyperparathyroidism were selected for treatment with ultrasound-guided percutaneous injection of ethanol (96%) into biopsy-verified solitary parathyroid tumours following a strict protocol with regard to dose, number of treatments and a minimum of 6 months follow-up. Of 18 patients(More)
Ultrasonically guided fine needle aspiration from 22 ultrasonically suspect enlarged parathyroid glands was performed in 21 consecutive patients with biochemically confirmed hyperparathyroidism. Histologic examination revealed parathyroid tissue in 20 and thyroid tissue in 2 of the 22 ultrasonically suspect parathyroid glands. The aspirated material (21(More)
Medullary carcinoma of the colon is a rare variant of colorectal cancer claimed to have a more favorable prognosis than conventional adenocarcinomas. The histopathologic appearance may be difficult to distinguish from poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. The study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic interobserver agreement and to characterize the(More)
We report on 134 fine needle biopsies in 127 patients with an ultrasound finding suggesting renal malignancy. Biopsy was performed guided by dynamic ultrasound using an 0.6 mm aspiration needle for cytology and an 0.8 mm Surecut needle for histology. The retrieval rate for cytology was 97.8% compared to 79.1% for histology. Sensitivity for cytology and(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence, diagnostic criteria and treatment of eosinophilic cystitis (EC) in Denmark during the period 1989-94. MATERIAL AND METHODS A questionnaire was sent to all Danish departments of surgery, urology and pathology. RESULTS Fifty-six cases of EC were diagnosed in the departments of surgery and(More)
In 100 consecutive patients ultrasonically guided histological and cytological fine needle biopsy specimens were obtained from pancreatic lesions using two different needles with an outer diameter of 0.6 mm. Specimens taken by both cytological and histological fine needle biopsy were examined blindly by two pathologists. When related to the final and(More)
Twelve patients with primary hyperparathyroidism were treated with sonographically guided percutaneous injection of ethanol (96%) into solitary parathyroid tumors verified by biopsy. The patients were all selected for nonoperative chemical parathyroid ablation either because of acute severe hypercalcemic symptoms (four patients), a high surgical risk or an(More)
BACKGROUND The Danish Cancer Registry holds information on all prostate cancers (PCa) cases, including diagnostic TNM. However, stratification according to contemporary risk classification is not possible because histopathological grading and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level are not registered. The objective of the study was to report clinical(More)
