BACKGROUND Twenty common genetic variants have been associated with risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC) in genome wide association studies to date. Since large differences between populations exist, generalisability of findings to any specific population needs to be confirmed. AIM The aim of this study was to perform an association study between(More)
AIM To estimate the incidence and mortality trends of gastric and colorectal cancers in Croatia between 1988 and 2008. METHODS Incidence data for the period 1988-2008 were obtained from the Croatian National Cancer Registry. The number of deaths from gastric and colorectal cancers were obtained from the World Health Organization mortality database.(More)
Based on immunohistochemical staining for the basal markers cytokeratin 5/6 (CK 5/6), cytokeratin 14 (CK 14) and P-cadherin, triple negative tumors (TNT) are divided into two groups: 1) basal-like (BL) positive for one or all three markers; and 2) non basal-like (NBL) negative for all three markers. Even though the different origin of the cells of these two(More)

SUMMARY – Mesonephric adenocarcinoma is a rare variant of cervical adenocarcinoma. We present a case of mesonephric adenocarcinoma of endocervix with cervical and vaginal lobular meso-nephric hyperplasia in a 57-year-old woman. Vaginal bleeding persisting for 12 months was the only symptom. Histopathologic fi ndings and characteristic immunophenotype are(More)
INTRODUCTION Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are present in 1-2% of newborn infants. The size of CMN defines the risk of developing melanoma which is estimated from 5-10%, especially in lesions that are located across the spine. PRESENTATION OF CASE Herein we report a case where nodular melanoma was discovered on the periphery of medium sized CMN in a(More)
Dental disease has long been proposed as a potential causative agent in certain dermatological diseases. However, literature data on this association are scarce. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate dental status in 92 patients with various dermatological diseases who were referred to our Department for elimination of dental disease and to(More)
Oral lichen planus (OLP) and oral lichenoid reaction (OLR) are clinically and histopathologically similar diseases. Whereas OLP is a consequence of T cell mediated autoinflammatory process to a still unknown antigen, OLR might be caused by drugs, dental restorative materials and dental plaque. Pubmed was searched and 24 publications published over the last(More)
Morphea is a cutaneous disorder characterized by excessive collagen deposition. While in almost all cases the sclerosing process exclusively affects the skin, there are anecdotal cases in which associated mucosal involvement has been described. In 1999 McNiff et al. (1) described the first cases of superficial morphea, presenting as pigmented mucosal(More)
Over-the-counter products rarely cause unwanted reactions in the oral cavity. Oral reactions to these agents are not specific and might present with various clinical oral findings. Detailed medical history is a key to the proper diagnosis of these lesions and fortunately other diagnostic procedures are rarely needed. Lesions are usually managed with(More)
