From June 1978 to December 1980 at the Istituto Nazionale Tumori of Milano, a fine-needle aspiration biopsy was performed on each of 4834 cases of palpable mammary nodules, the large majority of which were clinically and mammographically suspicious for cancer and only a small part clinically definitely positive. Of these, 1173 underwent surgery at this… (More)
Manifesting a putative origin from a pleomorphic adenoma, carcinosarcoma of the salivary gland is a heterologous neoplasm in which a sarcomatous and a carcinomatous component coexist. We present a parotid gland carcinosarcoma in a 77-year-old man with peculiar morphological findings. Fine-needle aspiration cytology allowed a preoperative diagnosis of poorly… (More)
In this paper the authors describe an uncommon case of a young woman affected by sarcoidosis with a unique localization in the right parotid gland, who, later on, developed a clinical picture of hemolytic anemia due to warm antibodies. The case is described and comments are made based on existing literature.
BACKGROUND Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) encompass a large group of mesenchymal neoplasms that display common cytologic spindle-shaped morphology on light microscopy. Immunocytochemical and ultrastructural studies can demonstrate several patterns of differentiation. CASE A 70-year-old male presented with two intraabdominal small bowel masses.… (More)
From May 1990 to April 1992 we used intramuscular beta-interferon to treat 17 patients with CIN associated with HPV virus (9 cases CIN1 and 8 cases CIN2) and 10 patients with genital condylomas without CIN. The dosage employed was 3.000.000 IU/daily/7 days and every other day for a further 14 days. All patients were followed up at 1,3 and 6 months and some… (More)
As well as being related to the spread of the tumour, cancer patients present a state of immunodeficiency which is linked to age, malnutrition which is often present, particular in cases of cancer of the gastroenteric tract, surgery and the possibility of associated chemo- or radiotherapy. The authors studied two groups of 25 patients with colorectal… (More)
