Extrahepatic biliary atresia (EBA) is a chronic inflammatory process leading to fibrous obliteration of the biliary tree. Cartilaginous metaplasia within the remaining walls of the biliary main ducts in EBA has been reported once, although as cartilage heterotopia. A similar finding is presented here, but in the gallbladder of an infant with the full-blown(More)
Glut1 is a marker of infantile hemangioma, and its positivity has resulted in defining this tumor at several sites (eg, skin, breast, salivary glands, liver, and placenta). We herein report on the presence of Glut1 positivity in the endothelial cells of 2 examples of intramuscular hemangioma, a peculiar tumor considered to be most probably congenital. The(More)
Arrhythmogenic ventricular cardiomyopathy (AVC) presents with fat replacement of the myocardium, most commonly of the right ventricle, and ventricular arrhythmias. We report an 11-year-old boy with Noonan syndrome, ventricular arrhythmias, and an ultrasound depicting hypertrophy of the ventricular septum with subaortic stenosis. A surgical resection of the(More)
We are reporting the case of a 17-year-old girl with kidney transplant under immunosuppressive treatment. Evidences of transplant malfunction led to urinary cytology to rule out BKV infection. The smears showed the presence of koilocytes. Gynecologic examination revealed numerous condylomatous lesions in the vulva, vagina, and cervix. PAP smears showed(More)
Gliofibroma is a relatively rare variant of a mixed glial-fibrous tumor more frequent in children than in adults. It has been reported to appear all along the neuraxis, with predilection for the midline. Its evolution is usually benign, although few examples have shown either multiple sites of involvement or leptomeningeal dissemination. Some authors regard(More)
The gliofibroma is an infrequent and peculiar glio-mesenchymal neoplasia. Most cases develop in children. We report our experience with a 7 year-old girl who presented with a right thalamus-mesencephalic tumor. The histologic and immunohistochemical studies revealed an intermixing of the two components of this neoplasia. The lesion followed a progressive(More)
AIMS To report three children displaying gastric metaplasia antral pyloric type of the small bowel mucosa. METHODS Analysis of clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical data. RESULTS The first patient was a 14-year-old girl with history of chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction and chronic jejunitis; the second patient was a 6-year-old girl(More)
