BACKGROUND Detection of micrometastatic disease is an interesting area in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We conducted a study to determine whether the detection of mediastinal lymph node spread by immunohistochemical (IHC) analysis offers some prognosis with respect to patients' disease-free survival or not. METHODS Between 1997 and 2003, twenty-one(More)
BACKGROUND Intraoperative evaluation of mediastinal lymph nodes is a necessary step which helps us to decide whether or not to continue the operation of lung cancer. Imprint cytology (IC) can be used as an alternative method in staging. It is a more rapid and simpler procedure than frozen section (FS) analysis. Therefore, we compared the diagnostic accuracy(More)
House paints, the industrial products of toxic chemicals are known to be linked with severe respiratory disturbances especially in inadequately ventilated places. In this study, we aimed to report a biopsy-proven case of extrinsic allergic alveolitis (EAA) who presented with nonspecific respiratory symptoms 1 month after having her whole house interior(More)
The impact of transurethral ultrasonography, fiberoptic cystoscopy and bladder washout cytology on assessment of bladder tumours was investigated in this study. Transurethral ultrasonography had an accuracy rate of 96.5% in diagnosing and staging bladder tumours. The accuracy rates of fiberoptic cystoscopy and washout cytology were 90.9% and 73.7%,(More)
This study examines the relationship between the presence of prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) and prostate specific antigen (PSA) in tissue, the serum PAP and PSA levels and tumour grade in prostatic adenocarcinoma. Thirty-three tumours were studied by the indirect immunoperoxidase method for PAP and PSA production. Thirty-one of them were stained positive(More)

Palpable lesion(s) noticed in a patient with thoracic disease may be a useful diagnostic tool and it often gives a clue for further management. In this study, we searched the diagnostic value of palpable lesions in patients with thoracic pathology suspected clinically and/or radiologically. We prospectively examined the correlations of clinical/radiologic(More)
INTRODUCTION Pulmonary hamartoma is a rare benign tumor of the lung, accounting for 3% of all tumors of the lung (1). The term hamartoma was first introduced by Albrecht in 1904 to describe tumor-like malformations resulting from a presumptive development abnormality. In 1934, Goldsworthy applied this term to benign tumors located in the lung that were(More)
