PURPOSE Idiopathic granulomatous lobular mastitis (IGLM) is a rare chronic inflammatory disease of the breast with obscure etiology that mimics invasive carcinoma both clinically and radiologically. The treatment of IGLM remains controversial. The aim of proper management is to use a combination of medical and surgical treatment of this benign condition to(More)
Cerebellar liponeurocytoma that has been recently identified as a distinct entity by the World Health Organization is characterized by areas of lipomatous differentiation and apparently by a favorable prognosis. In this paper, we described a case of 49-year-old female showing progressive clinical course inspite of a low labeling/mitotic index. We also(More)
PURPOSE The markers of prognosis are used to predict the clinical course of disease and the outcome for patients with invasive breast cancer. Our aim is to investigate the relationship of peritumoural lymphovascular invasion (LVI) with well-known prognostic markers. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-one surgically treated patients with invasive breast cancer(More)
AIM Histopathological diagnosis is always necessary to make an effective treatment plan for intracranial mass lesions. This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy, and associated mortality and morbidity of CT-guided stereotactic biopsy procedures in a large number of patients with intracranial lesions. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the diagnostic yield and accuracy of stereotactic biopsy in patients harboring brain mass. Stereotactic biopsy was performed in 130 patients between 1995 and 2000 in an educational and research hospital in Turkey. The results of histological analysis were compared to the resected specimens in 23(More)
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) rarely occurs in the central nervous system. Although defined by its composition of large, pleomorphic, CD30-positive lymphocytes, ALCL is heterogeneous. Most are T cell but some are null cell. Most but not all have a characteristic 2:5 translocation producing the fusion protein ALK-1, which is reliably detected by(More)
BACKGROUND Heat shock protein (60 kd HSP) has been implicated in the etiology of Behçet's disease, but its expression at sites of inflammation is unknown. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to investigate local HSP 60 expression and to quantify T-cell receptor (TCR) gamma delta-positive cells, which are known to respond to HSP peptides. METHODS Patients with active(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated splenic metastases from colorectal cancer are very rare and there are only 13 cases reported in the English literature so far. Most cases are asymptomatic and the diagnosis is usually made by imaging studies during the evaluation of rising CEA level postoperatively. CASE PRESENTATION A 76-year-old man underwent an extended left(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To achieve a negative surgical margin, resection of superior mesenteric/portal vein is necessary in pancreatic cancer. This study is designed to demonstrate the demographic and clinical differences of the patients requiring major vein resection and the incidence of histopathological vein invasion. METHODOLOGY A retrospective analysis of(More)
