Despite contradictory information about the course and distribution of the nerves supplying the breast, surgical techniques using an inferior pedicle have been recommended over those using a superior pedicle for preserving the nipple-areolar sensation after surgery. This anatomical study was designed to quantify the nerve branches preserved in inferior and(More)
A newborn male, born to Turkish first cousins, presented with severe pre- and postnatal growth retardation. Weight was 800 g at term. Salient clinical features were dwarfism with moderate limb shortening, microcephaly, hirsutism, facial dysmorphism including prominent small cloudy eyes, large nose with high nasal root, retrognathism and low-set ears.(More)
In order to properly advise cardiac patients in the regulation of their sexual activity, more basic physiologic information is needed concerning the cardiovascular effects of sexual intercourse. This study examined the effects of the male's position during sexual intercourse on heart rate and blood pressure responses. Eight men, 24 to 40 years of age, were(More)
In the present study we used computer-assisted microscopy to analyze the morphology of Feulgen-stained cell nuclei in cell populations obtained at the same time as routinely performed cervical smears and in the same way. We investigated in a series of 110 cases whether the quantitative morphonuclear description of cytological cervical samples is able to aid(More)
Among skin cancers, basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is considered as a relatively indolent disease. Sometimes, these carcinomas have an unusual clinical behaviour, with extreme aggressiveness. Based on reports of eight cases of aggressive BCC of the head and neck areas, and after a review of the literature, we define three criteria of aggressiveness: (1) initial(More)
The distinction between benign and malignant smooth muscle tumours relying on histological features such as the mitotic index and pleomorphism remains a generally acknowledged difficulty in modern pathology. A cell image processor was therefore used to quantitatively assess the desmin and vimentin immunostain in 39 smooth muscle tumours which included 26(More)
We report a case of giant benign pancreatic mucinous cystadenoma in a 19-year-old woman with celiac disease and polycystic kidneys. She presented with a history of moderate episodic left flank pain evolving for a few weeks before becoming acute the night before her admission. We provide radiological and histological material and a short review of the(More)
The leiomyosarcoma are rare tumors, accounting for only 0.1% to 3% of all gastrointestinal malignancies. 150 new cases are diagnosed annually in the United States. The spectacular character of leiomyosarcoma consists in its measurements, its size reaching 35 x 25 x 17 cm, its weight 5.5 kg, and in the asymptomatic character of the tumor. The final(More)
We report the first case of detection of sentinel node in a 54 year-old woman presenting an adenocarcinoma of Bartholin's gland. Primary carcinoma of Bartholin's gland is rare and represents 2-7% of vulvar malignant lesions; this could explain the lack of consensus about treatment. The best attitude could be vulvectomy and inguinal lymphadenectomy. Pelvic(More)
