An unusual case of invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast associated with epitheloid granulomas is reported. Multinucleated giant Langhans'-type giant cells were found in the epitheloid granulomas in breast carcinoma, but there were not present in the breast tissue and axillary lymph nodes. Congo-red deposits were found haphazardly in the stroma between(More)
Nonneoplastic tumor-like lesions ("pseudotumors") of the pancreas include cystic and noncystic varieties. We report on a solid and cystic tumor-like lesion of the pancreas that occurred in 2 adult patients. The lesions, located in the head and neck of the gland, respectively, were well demarcated and composed of cystic ductal structures embedded in focally(More)
Ki-67, tumor proliferation marker, is an important prognostic factor in a variety of cancers. In the present study, we investigated the expression and the prognostic value of Ki-67 in nephroblastoma. Ki-67 expressions were investigated by immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded material in 48 children operated on because of nephroblastoma. Patients were(More)
BACKGROUND The epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) is a transmembrane glycoprotein that was originally identified as a marker for carcinoma, attributable to its high expression on rapidly proliferating tumors of epithelial origin. The role of EpCAM is not limited to cell adhesion but includes diverse processes such as signaling, cell migration,(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian leiomyoma is a rare benign tumor that accounts for 0.5 to 1% of all benign ovarian tumors. It probably arises from smooth muscle cells in the ovarian hilar blood vessels but there are other possible origins including cells in the ovarian ligament, smooth muscle cells or multipotential cells in the ovarian stroma, undifferentiated germ(More)
The diagnosis of prostatic adenocarcinoma in needle core biopsy is based on major and supportive criteria. One of the supportive criteria is the presence of retraction clefting around neoplastic glands. We analyzed a series of 137 prostatic cancer cases diagnosed by needle core biopsy to determine the frequency, extent and criteria for periacinar retraction(More)
Imprinting analyses of IGF2 and H19, loss of heterozygosity (LOH) analyses of IGF2R and CTCF and Helicobacter pylori detection, were performed on 35 human laryngeal squamous cell carcinomas (LSCC). Forty-six percent of the tumors were heterozygous for IGF2, and 54% were informative for the H19. Biallelic expression of IGF2 was observed in 33% (5 out of 15)(More)
A 69-year-old man was admitted for resection of rectal adenocarcinoma diagnosed by colonoscopy. Preoperative computed tomography scan and abdominal ultrasonography revealed bilateral renal tumors measuring up to 2 and 2.8 cm in largest diameter, respectively. The patient underwent partial colectomy and bilateral partial nephrectomy. Microscopically, rectal(More)
The present study was designated to analyze correlation between the presence and extent of peritumoral retraction clefting and various clinicopathologic features in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), and to possibly establish the significance of this phenomenon in ESCC. Fifty-four consecutive patients with advanced ESCC were included in the study.(More)
We analyzed neuronal phenotypes and dendritic growth in the newborn with semilobar holoprosencephaly and 18p deletion. We found that the holoprosencephalic neocortex retained its basic six-layered lamination but displayed a number of intralaminar and modular architectonic alterations and contained a mixture of normal and aberrant neuronal phenotypes. The(More)
