The authors report a renal cell carcinoma composed largely of spindle cells of Fuhrman's nuclear grade II in which the bland appearance of the cells and low mitotic index were reminiscent of a benign or low-grade smooth muscle tumor. Keratin immunostaining was positive, but evidence of epithelial differentiation was obtained by electron microscopy. The(More)
We report a case of clear cell renal cell carcinoma in which a prominent multinucleated giant cell component was intermingled with clear, granular, and spindle cells. Histological, ultrastructural, cytometric, and cytogenetic features of giant cells were similar to those of mononucleated cells in the tumor, and therefore they were not from stromal or(More)
Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism that regulates gene expression, and disease-specific methylation changes can be targeted as biomarkers. We have compared the genome-wide methylation pattern in tumor and tumor-adjacent normal lung tissue from four lung adenocarcinoma (LAC)(More)
