Congenital epulis or neonatal granular cell tumor is a tumor whose histogenesis has long been debated. It is dissimilar to other granular cell tumors; the latter having derivation from Schwann cells and hence being S-100 positive. We report a case of congenital granular cell tumor in a newborn female child that was uneventfully operated. The case is(More)
Filariasis is a major public health problem in India and microfilaria is sometimes seen during routine fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) smears, but it is very rare to find microfilaria coexistent with neoplastic lesions. Here we report a series of seven cases in which microfilaria is associated with neoplastic lesions. Out of these seven cases one is(More)

Aim: To assess the utility of FNAC in diagnosing the prostatic carcinoma .Material and methods: The study of 121 cases was conducted from year 2006 to 2008. The data was analyzed to assess the utility of FNAC for the diagnosis of carcinoma prostate. Results: During the study overall sensitivity and specificity of FNAC were 95.23% and 98.73% respectively and(More)
Microscope images of biopsy samples of cervical precancers conventionally discriminated by histopathology, the current "gold standard" for cancer detection, showed that their correlation properties are segregated into different classes. The correlation domains clearly indicate increasing cellular clustering in different grades of precancer compared to their(More)
Ependymoblastoma is a rare, highly malignant brain tumour considered by most to be a subtype of primitive neuroectodermal tumour manifesting in young children. The authors present an unusual case of ependymoblastoma occurring in an 18-year-old female, one of the oldest patients reported with this tumour. The crush smears were highly cellular comprising(More)
