Reports on the incidence of odontogenic tumours are infrequent with only a limited number of series having appeared in the literature. In this paper, the results of a multicentre retrospective study on the histologic types and relative frequencies of odontogenic tumours in Turkey are presented. The results indicated that the most frequent histologic type(More)
BACKGROUND Cytologic discrimination of cellular nodules, follicular adenoma, and follicular carcinoma in the thyroid is problematic. Methods are needed to achieve a reliable diagnosis. Some sophisticated tools, such as microarrays, offer great potential but lack accompanying morphologic information. METHODS One hundred twelve samples obtained from(More)
Acute myelofibrosis is characterized by pancytopenia of sudden onset, megakaryocytic hyperplasia, extensive bone marrow fibrosis, and the absence of organomegaly. Acute myelofibrosis in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia is extremely rare. We report a 4-year-old boy who was diagnosed as having acute massive myelofibrosis and acute lymphoblastic(More)
Two solid and two cystic forms of calcifying odontogenic cysts were stained immunohistochemically to study keratin, carcinoembryonic antigen, epithelial membrane antigen, and S-100 protein expression in ghost cells. The patterns of immunoreactivity were compared with those of dentigerous cysts, odontogenic keratocysts, ameloblastomas, calcifying(More)
Fine needle aspiration cytologic findings in two cases of malignant lymphoepithelial lesion (MLEL) of the parotid glands are presented. Aspirates of both cases showed individual or cohesive clusters of tumor cells intermingling with mature lymphocytes. Cervical lymph node aspirates in both cases were similar to those seen in the parotids. Our findings(More)
Utilization of telepathology systems to cover distant geographical areas has increased recently. However, the potential usefulness of similar systems for closer distances does not seem to be widely appreciated. In this study, we present data on the use of a simple telepathology system connecting the pathology department and the intra-operative consultation(More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE An unusual, but not unique, case of cerebellar aspergillosis associated with autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for breast cancer is presented. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 45-year-old woman with breast cancer underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well as autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.(More)
Peripheral giant cell granulomas are common proliferative lesions of the oral cavity with a predilection for females. In this study, the presence of estrogen and progesterone receptors in 26 peripheral giant cell granuloma cases were studied utilizing the immunoperoxidase technique. In fourteen cases, estrogen receptor positivity was found in stromal cells.(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the effects of various slicing schemes on the detection of metastases in lymph nodes. STUDY DESIGN Use of an advanced computer simulation tool. RESULTS Bisectioning along the longitudinal axis is an inadequate approach. Slicing ellipsoid lymph nodes along their longitudinal axis also results in a lower rate of detecting metastases(More)
