Using only spatially and temporally replicated point counts, Royle (2004b, Biometrics 60, 108-115) developed an N-mixture model to estimate the abundance of an animal population when individual animal detection probability is unknown. One assumption inherent in this model is that the animal populations at each sampled location are closed with respect to(More)
Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EH) is the prototype of a group of vascular tumors characterized by an epithelioid or histiocytoid endothelial cell. This family also includes the epithelioid hemangioma (angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia) and epithelioid forms of angiosarcoma. This review discusses the principal clinical, pathologic, and biologic(More)
Twenty cases of an unusual tumor of the lung are described. This tumor usually presents with multiple small, slowly growing pulmonary nodules. Many cases are detected incidentally. Eighty percent are women, and 50% are less than 40 years of age. Survival with tumor can be quite long. However, one half the patients have died, usually of progressive pulmonary(More)
This investigation studied the general conditions and prognostic factors of pulmonary epithelioid haemangioendothelioma (PEH), which is a rare disease. Twenty-one patients were collected throughout Asia by a questionnaire. Age at the detection or onset of symptoms of PEH was 14-64 yrs (mean 44 yrs). Males were more likely to be detected by symptoms (4/8,(More)
BACKGROUND Intravascular lymphoma (IVL) is an uncommon malignancy defined pathologically by neoplastic proliferation of lymphoid cells within the lumens of capillaries, small veins, and arteries, with little or no adjacent parenchymal involvement. The nature of IVL has been the subject of considerable controversy. Recent immunohistochemical studies have(More)
Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1), a nuclear transcription protein selectively expressed in the thyroid, the diencephalon, and respiratory epithelium, is expressed in more than 90% of pulmonary small cell carcinomas (SCLCs) and in almost 75% of pulmonary non-small cell carcinomas (NSCLCs), but it is absent in typical pulmonary carcinoids (TCs).(More)
Arterioportal shunting is observed angiographically in a wide variety of pathologic conditions. The route of flow has classically been considered to be via the hepatic sinusoids (transsinusoidal). This route occurs in cases of cirrhosis or the Budd-Chiari syndrome, and results in retrograde hepatofugal flow in portal branches. More recently, a transvasal(More)
Perivascular Epithelial Cell (PEComa) Tumors are extremely rare. These tumors are often regarded as low grade Sarcomas and treated as such. We report a case of a 70 year old female with a history of nonspecific complaints and on routine CT scan had bilateral multiple renal masses with no other extra renal disease. The largest mass on the right was 11 cm x 7(More)
Objective: The best treatment approach for patients with documented Barrett's esophagus remains controversial. There is currently no well designed prospective study examining the effect of successful antireflux surgery on Barrett's esophagus. Methods: Fourteen patients with histologically proven Barrett's esophagus underwent standard antireflux surgery(More)
Between 1967 and 1977, 36 patients received treatment at the Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Wash, for ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast. Twenty-five patients had modified radical mastectomies, 10 had radical mastectomies, and one had a simple mastectomy. Twenty-seven patients have been followed up for at least 10 years and are without known(More)
