Only few clinical factors predict the prognosis of patients with Ewing tumors. Unfavorable outcome is associated with primary metastatic disease, age > 15 years, tumor volume above 200 ml, and the histological response to chemotherapy. The aim of this study was to elucidate the prevalence and clinical impact of microsatellite instability (MSI) together with(More)
BACKGROUND Reduced alpha-defensin expression has been reported in the terminal ileum (TI) of adult patients with ileal Crohn's disease (CD). However, little is known about alpha-defensin expression in children with chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). METHODS In all, 283 intestinal biopsies were obtained from children with CD, ulcerative colitis(More)
PURPOSE We used targeted mass spectrometry to study the metabolic fingerprint of urothelial cancer and determine whether the biochemical pathway analysis gene signature would have a predictive value in independent cohorts of patients with bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pathologically evaluated, bladder derived tissues, including benign adjacent(More)
Acute appendicitis is a common cause for a visit to the emergency department and appendectomy represents the most common emergency procedure in surgery.

Cholesterol stones represent over 80% of gallstones. Cholesterol stones develop secondary to crystallization of bile cholesterol. Water resorption from gallbladder bile via(More)
Vimentin is currently used to differentiate between malignant renal carcinomas and benign oncocytomas. Recent reports showing Vimentin positive oncocytomas seriously question the validity of this present diagnostic approach. Vimentin 3 is a spliced variant and ends with a unique C-terminal ending after exon 7 which differentiates it from the full length(More)
BACKGROUND Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm is a rare cystic tumor of the exocrine pancreas. Abdominal pain or discomfort is the most common symptom, usually in young females. CASE PRESENTATION Herein we report the case of an 8 - year old child presenting with symptoms of gastric outlet obstruction. CONCLUSION A solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of the(More)
BACKGROUND Is the patient really suffering from acute appendicitis? Right lower quadrant pain is the most common sign of acute appendicitis. However, many other bowels pathologies might mimic acute appendicitis. Due to fear of the consequences of delayed or missed diagnosis, the indication for emergency appendectomy is liberally made. This has been shown to(More)
Metastatic involvement of the penis is rare. Secondary lesions generally originate from pelvic tumours. Bladder and prostate are the most common primary tumours. Commonly, penile metastases occur in cases of disseminated cancer disease. We present the case of a prostatic mucinous adenocarcinoma with a solitary, PSA-negative, asymptomatic metastasis to the(More)
