Transition from fetal to postnatal life requires significant changes in cardiac, pulmonary, and hepatic blood flow. As such, there must be changes in vascular control in these vascular systems. Vascular resistance, a major contributor to blood flow, is mediated in the ductus arteriosus and pulmonary vasculature by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS).(More)
Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) may be accompanied by jaundice, a condition referred to as the icteropyloric syndrome (IPS). It has long been suspected that the etiology of IPS is an early manifestation of Gilbert's syndrome (GS). Clinical features common to both GS and IPS include jaundice precipitated by fasting and improved with feeding. Prevalence(More)
Fibroepithelial lesions (FEL) of the breast are notoriously difficult to classify on core needle biopsies. The goal of this study was to evaluate interobserver variability and accuracy of subclassifying difficult FELs into fibroadenoma (FA) and phyllodes tumors (PTs). We identified 50 breast core needle biopsies, initially diagnosed generically as FEL, with(More)
BACKGROUND The distinction of lung adenocarcinoma (ADC) from squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has important therapeutic implications. Napsin A is a recently developed marker, which has shown high specificity for lung tissue in the surgical pathology specimens. In this study, we have evaluated whether the use of a panel of novel multiplex cocktails of TTF-1 +(More)
Only a few cases of adenocarcinoma (ACA) metastatic to the female lower genital tract diagnosed on cervicovaginal Pap smear have been reported during the past several decades. Both conventional and liquid based cytology (LBC) have limited sensitivity and specificity in diagnosing metastatic disease and immunocytochemical (ICC) staining may be needed for(More)
We present a rare finding of concurrent right testis non-seminomatous mixed germ cell tumor and muscle invasive urothelial carcinoma of the bladder in a 57-year-old homeless man. The socioeconomic factors and the disease presentation caused a treatment dilemma in terms of the appropriate type of neoadjuvant chemotherapy. The patient ultimately underwent(More)
The doctrine of the mean is an important and integral part of the thought of Confucianism, which occupied a dominant position for a long time in Chinese history since the Western Han dynasty and exerted a great influence for the development of cultural thought in later ages, including the principle of conduct and behave, the construction of social structure(More)
BACKGROUND It has been reported that African-Americans (AA) have a higher prevalence of overall malignancy compared to Caucasians, in the United States, yet the incidence of thyroid malignancy is half. The aim of this study is to assess the rate of malignant versus benign thyroid disease in AA from an urban-based hospital with an academic setting. Our study(More)
