The uterine adenofibroma is a form of mixed mesodermal tumor in which both epithelial and stromal components are benign. A case is presented in which a patient with this lesion was treated with excision of the tumor rather than hysterectomy. Two years later, she developed a recurrence of the lesion, which was again treated with wide local excision. A(More)
We tested a variety of inversion-recovery (IR) and spin-echo (SE) sequences by imaging the breast masses of 22 patients before surgery and 23 tissue specimens with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging at 0.6 T to determine the most effective pulse sequences to evaluate breast disease. An SE pulse sequence using a long repetition time (TR) of 1,600 msec and a(More)
A case of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) with penetrance of the Ph1 molecular alteration into the T-cell lineage of a paraspinal tumor is reported. The T-cell nature of the paraspinal tumor was documented by immunochemical study and genotyping. The Philadelphia chromosome was also detected by genotyping in the same tumor cell population.

The objective of the experiment was to quantify the effect of stocking rate (SR) and animal genotype on milk production, dry matter intake (DMI), energy balance, and production efficiency across 2 consecutive grazing seasons (2014 and 2015). A total of 753 records from 177 dairy cows were available for analysis: 68 Holstein-Friesian and 71 Jersey ×(More)
An elderly woman with angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinemia (AILD) presented de novo with DIC in the absence of other etiologic causes for DIC. Complete reversal of the defibrination process occurred with vincristine, methyl-prednisolone, and heparin therapy. This case illustrates that defibrination can occur de novo in the presence of a(More)
