In the liver, total collagen accumulation during the fibrotic or cirrhotic process was measured using a methodology based on the determination of collagen amino acids in liver biopsies from adults with alcoholic liver diseases or children with biliary atresia. The results obtained with this methodology were compared to histopathological findings. Thus, it(More)
We report a 25-year-old patient with a progressive asymmetric peripheral neuropathy of the distal lower limbs. Imaging studies showed enlargement of lumbosacral roots, plexus, and proximal sciatic nerve. Sacral plexus biopsy revealed amyloidosis associated with endoneurial edema. Immunohistochemistry with anti-prealbumin, serum amyloid A, and immunoglobulin(More)
The weekly administration of 1,2-dimethyl-hydrazine (DMH) by subcutaneous injection for a period of 16-20 weeks is a well known procedure for producing colonic tumors in mice and rats. Quantitative histomorphological, histochemical and kinetic studies, as well as investigation of the significance of epithelial cell density were carried out in mice between(More)
Pinkus and Mehregan's epidermotropic eccrine carcinoma shows particular clinico-pathological characteristics which makes it different from the other cutaneous epitheliomas. A case observed on a 81 year old woman is reported. The initial lesion consisted of an ulcerating tumor on the calf, then followed by multiple verrucous papules eruption around it.(More)
Capsular tumors of the kidney are uncommon or poorly documented. The authors report two cases of benign vascular tumors: a so-called "vascular leiomyoblastoma" and a glomus tumor. An ultrastructural study of the first tumor demonstrated smooth muscular characteristics. Obvious histological features of glomus were seen in the second. Immunohistochemical(More)
Epithelial cell proliferation has been studied from a topological point of view, in the ascending colon of the mouse. The ascending colon was investigated because it offered the possibility of studying distinct mucosal sites according to whether they are situated on folds or away from the folds. Consequently fold top areas (FTA), fold side areas (FSA), flat(More)
In this article, the authors survey the evolution of the Pratt & Whitney company's assistance program for their employees. Observing that their employees had problems with alcoholism, the personnel development developed a help program for the alcoholics which in the course of the years has also become a help program to the alcoholic's families.

A case of thymoma associated with chronic lupus erythematosus is reported. The course of the lupus was parallel to that of the thymoma, with several successive relapses. Histologically, the thymoma became increasingly undifferentiated. Chemotherapy only resulted in a few months of remission.
