A series of almost 25,000 thyroids examined by fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy was reviewed to ascertain the incidence and presentation of metastatic cancers in thyroid FNA samples. Metastatic cancers in FNA samples from the thyroid were identified in 25 cases (0.1%); the primary tumors were carcinomas of the kidney (8 cases), lung (7 cases), breast (5(More)
Between 1970 and 1987, 20,028 fine needle aspirates (FNA) of the thyroid have been examined in the Department of Pathology of the University of Innsbruck, Austria. During this period 92 cases of anaplastic carcinoma and 16 cases of malignant haemangioendothelioma (MHE) of the thyroid were diagnosed. Forty-three out of these 108 highly malignant tumours of(More)
Eighteen cases of malignant hemangioendothelioma (MHE) of the thyroid and 16 cases of undifferentiated thyroid carcinoma were investigated immunohistochemically with antibodies against endothelial cell specific markers (factor VIII-related antigen, BMA 120, blood group isoantigens, Ulex europaeus agglutinin I), thyroglobulin, and the intermediate filament(More)
Between 1977 and 1989 252 fine needle aspirates (FNAs) of the thyroid from patients with a clinical suspicion of subacute granulomatous (de Quervain's) thyroiditis were examined in the Department of Pathology of the University of Innsbruck, Austria. In the same period 31 cases with preoperative FNA were diagnosed histologically as subacute thyroiditis. Only(More)
In our institute from 1970 to 1983 12,829 fine needle aspiration biopsies (FNB) of the thyroid were cytologically examined. Cytologically unsatisfactory specimens were found in 17.7%. 2,709 patients with representative cytological findings were operated and histological examinations were performed. The cytological and histological findings were correlated.(More)
In total, 15,325 fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies of the thyroid were examined in the Department of Pathology of the University of Innsbruck, Austria, between 1976 and 1985, with the cytologic results histologically verified in 3,112 cases. Since (1) it is frequently impossible to distinguish benign from malignant encapsulated follicular thyroid tumors(More)
No complications caused by gallstones lost during laparoscopic cholecystectomy have yet been described in the literature. In one animal study in rats, it has been shown that pigment calculi, but not cholesterol stones, lead to severe local inflammation of the abdominal cavity. We present a case of a chronic subcutaneous and subfascial abscess in the lower(More)
From 1979 to 1983, 94 papillary carcinomas of the thyroid gland were examined histologically in our institute after a preoperative cytologic examination. Material for cytologic examination was obtained using fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy. Eighty-five (90.4%) of the 94 examined cytologic smears were representative. Among these 85 cases suspicion for(More)
Normal and hyperplastic thyroid C-cells and 14 cases of medullary thyroid carcinoma were investigated immunohistochemically with antibodies against chromogranins A and B, secretogranin II, calcitonin and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). Normal and hyperplastic C-cells showed strong calcitonin and chromogranin A immunoreactivity whereas CGRP,(More)
