Chondroid syringoma (CS) is an uncommon, benign, sweat-gland tumor. The usual presentation is of an asymptomatic, slowly growing mass, typically located on the head and neck region. We present a case of a CS located in the right arm of a 43-year-old woman. This tumor developed slowly over 8 years. The diagnosis of CS was made by histopathological(More)
The simian virus SV40 (SV40), a potent DNA oncogenic polyomavirus, has been detected in several human tumors including lymphomas, mainly in diffuse large B-cell type (DLBCL). However, a causative role for this virus has not been convincingly established. Hypermethylation in promoter regions is a frequent process of silencing tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) in(More)
AIMS The purpose of our study is to determine the sensitivity, specificity and predictive values of an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and a dot blot assay for the detection of IgA class anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (IgA-AtTGA) and to compare these results with those of IgA class anti-endomysium antibodies (IgA-AEA), IgA class(More)
The objective was to determine the demographic characteristics, the clinical features, the immuno-histological findings and response to treatment of childhood linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) in Tunisia. We collected all the cases of auto-immune bullous diseases of childhood, diagnosed from January 1987 to December 2006. Based on clinical, histological,(More)
Expression and transamidation activity of tissue transglutaminase (tTG) may be involved in the morphological modifications leading to the mucosal atrophy observed in coeliac disease (CD). We aimed to investigate the localization of tTG within the duodenal mucosa during the development of villous atrophy. The localization and level of expression of(More)
This study was carried out to determine the effect of dietary fibre (DF) of barley Rihane (BR) in the attenuation of colon, liver and lung histopathology alterations induced by azoxymethane (AOM) in rats. Rats were fed a control (C) or experimental diet containing 30% of BR. The intended rats for cancer treatment received two successive subcutaneous(More)
Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among Tunisian women, and the incidence rates vary by region. Three Tunisian registries report age-standardized rates of 6.3/10(5) in the central region, 5.4/10(5) in the north, and 2.7/10(5) in the south. High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) types and their variants differ in carcinogenic potential and(More)
UNLABELLED Mesenchymal tumors of the digestive tract are rare and display variable morphological appearances. Thanks to immunohistochemistry and molecular biology, these tumors are now better classified and dominated by stromal tumors. AIMS the aim of this article is to study morphological characteristics of mesenchymal tumors of the digestive tract and(More)
CONTEXT Sebaceous cell carcinoma is a malignant neoplasm, rarely recognized in extra ocular sites. His prognosis depends of the precocity of the diagnosis. This neoplasm is aggressive in 29%; lymph node and visceral metastasis aren't rare. CASE REPORT An 80-year-old male had an ulcerated and infected nodule located on the left thigh. The lesion appeared(More)
