A retrospective morphologic survey (1973-1983) of 146 cases of malignant lymphoma among the Hawaii-Japanese (migrant Japanese and their offspring) was conducted to determine whether differences in the incidence and cytologic types of malignant lymphoma exist when compared to those of native Japanese (lifetime residents of Japan). The age-adjusted incidence(More)
The histological features of a distinctive follicular hyperplasia observed in twenty-nine male patients with AIDS or the AIDS related complex are described. The group includes four patients with Kaposi's sarcoma, five with lymphoma, 16 with persistent generalized lymphadenopathy, and four with hemophilia. Histopathology is correlated with lymphocyte(More)
Lymph nodes from 13 cases of reactive hyperplasia were examined with four different monoclonal antibodies to B cells. B-1 recognizes an antigen of 30,000 daltons on B cells. CB-2 was prepared with normal spleen and binds to a glycolipid. BA-1 labels surface immunoglobulin-positive cells, but not T lymphocytes or monocytes. B-532 recognizes an antigenic(More)
Lymph node involvement is one of the major factors affecting the prognosis of colorectal cancer. Various imaging methods, including ultrasound and computed tomography, are not sufficiently sensitive or specific for reliably determining lymph node involvement. We investigated the feasibility of using ultrasonic tissue characterization (UTC) based on spectrum(More)
A 70-year-old man was referred to our hospital due to abnormal liver function. A tumor of 92 mm × 61 mm was detected on ultrasound screening of the left liver lobe. Although the tumor was suspected to be intrahepatic bile duct carcinoma, he had chronic heart disease and was unable to undergo surgery. Therefore, he was followed without further testing. No(More)
Axillary lymph node status is of particular importance for staging and managing breast cancer. Currently, axillary lymph node dissection is performed routinely in cases of invasive breast cancer because of the lack of accurate noninvasive methods for diagnosing lymph node metastasis. We investigated the diagnostic ability of ultrasonic tissue(More)
Axillary lymph node status is an important factor for staging and treatment planning in breast cancer. Our study was performed in vitro on a node-by-node basis to evaluate the ability of B-mode ultrasonographic images to distinguish metastatic from nonmetastatic nodes. Immediately prior to histologic examination, individual dissected axillary nodes were(More)
