Tumor immunologic microenvironment is strongly involved in tumor progression and the presence of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) with different phenotypes has been demonstrated to be of prognostic relevance in different malignancies. We investigated whether TIL infiltration of tumor tissues could also predict the outcome of prostate cancer patients. To(More)
OBJECTIVE To prospectively evaluate if computed tomography perfusion (CTp) could be a useful tool in addition to multiphasic CT in renal lesion characterisation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-eight patients that were scheduled for surgical resection of a renal mass with a suspicion of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) were enrolled. Forty-one out of 58 patients(More)
We describe an unusual case of a recurrent dural neoplasm, previously diagnosed as meningioma. Histopathologically, the tumor is characterized by aggregates of divergently differentiated clear cells embedded in an abundant lymphoplasmacyte-rich stroma, mimicking a lymphoplasmacyte-rich meningioma. This study focuses on the histologic and immunohistochemical(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The lymphatic system plays an active role in the metastatic process by directly facilitating recruitment of cancer cells into the vessels. The present study aimed to assess the lymphatic vessel area and the lymphatic vessel density in prostate adenocarcinoma and to correlate these parameters with patients prognosis and outcome. PATIENTS AND(More)
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death. The androgen deprivation therapy is the standard treatment for advanced stages. Unfortunately, virtually all tumors become resistant to androgen withdrawal. The progression to castration-resistance is not fully understood, although a recent paper has suggested translationally controlled(More)
Primary colorectal lymphomas are very rare. They are mostly B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Only 2 cases of anorectal Hodgkin lymphoma have been described so far, both affecting HIV-infected males and showing Epstein-Barr virus infection. We report an unusual case of primary Hodgkin lymphoma of the anorectal region in an HIV-negative, Epstein-Barr(More)
Translationally controlled tumor protein is a multifaceted protein involved in several physiological and biological functions. Its expression in normal kidney and in renal carcinomas, once corroborated by functional data, may add elements to elucidate renal physiology and carcinogenesis. In this study, translationally controlled tumor protein expression was(More)
BACKGROUND Primary lymphoepithelial-like carcinoma of the parotid gland is a rare tumour with an increased incidence among Eskimos and Orientals. In these populations, it is usually associated with Epstein-Barr virus. In Western countries, salivary gland lymphoepithelial-like carcinomas are uncommon and only 14 cases have been described so far; among these,(More)
The concept of unidirectional differentiation of the haematopoietic stem cell has been challenged after recent findings that human B cell progenitors and even mature B cells can be reprogrammed into histiocytic/dendritic cells by altering expression of lineage-associated transcription factors. The conversion of mature B cell lymphomas to Langerhans cell(More)
Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma is a biologically aggressive neoplasm mainly found in the head and neck region. Recently, four cases of basaloid squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder have been reported, and three of them occurred in patients with neurogenic bladder, repeated catheterizations and human papillomavirus infection of the urinary tract. To the(More)
