OBJECTIVES Oral cancer is a worldwide phenomenon. It is thought to develop in a number of premalignant lesions. Protooncogene c fos is a known transformer of premalignant to malignant lesions. However, its role in oral carcinogenesis is not yet known. STUDY DESIGN A total of 130 cases were studied comprising of premalignant lesions (n=50), squamous cell(More)
We present a rare case of a 30-year-old woman who presented with a swelling on the lateral aspect of her left forearm, present since 6 months, adjacent to a 16-year-old burn scar. X-ray of elbow joint and forearm revealed the subcutaneous nature of the swelling. Giemsa and periodic acid–Schiff-stained smears and potassium hydroxide mount of fine-needle(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) is characterised by the presence of a fusion driver oncogene, BCR-ABL1, which is a constitutive tyrosine kinase. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are the central treatment strategy for CML patients and have significantly improved survival rates, but the T315I mutation in the kinase domain of BCR-ABL1 confers(More)
Pyrenochaeta romeroi is a rare fungal agent of chronic, suppurative subcutaneous infections leading to mycetoma. It is an unusual cause of deep, non-mycetomatous infections. We herein present review of the literature along with a case of 61-year-old Indian female with rheumatoid arthritis who developed subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused by Pyrenochaeta(More)
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a metabolic syndrome, characterized by anovulation, hyperandrogenism, and polycystic ovary. With serological markers of autoimmunity found elevated in PCOS, there is a possible link between autoimmunity and PCOS. AIM The study aimed to investigate the possible correlation between autoimmune markers of(More)
BACKGROUND The application of precision medicine in oncology requires in-depth characterisation of a patient's tumours and the dynamics of their responses to treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS We used next-generation sequencing of circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) to monitor the response of a KIT p.L576P-mutant metastatic vaginal mucosal melanoma to(More)
Primary osteoclast-like giant cell tumor (OC-GCT) has been rarely described in extraskeletal sites. The diagnosis primarily hinges on the detection of giant cells. However, these giant cells are also seen in many giant cell lesions, thus creating diagnostic confusion and dilemma. Here, we describe a rare case of a 24-year-old male with primary(More)
