OBJECTIVE To define the accuracy and acceptability of ultrasonography-guided percutaneous needle core biopsy in diagnosis of renal masses. METHODS The data of 42 consecutive patients on whom needle biopsies were performed and were surgically treated for suspicious renal masses in our clinic between January 2001 and April 2008 were evaluated. In all(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare the consistency of major/minor fetal anomalies detected by second trimester prenatal ultrasound examination with the findings in fetal autopsies following the termination of pregnancy (TOP) in the second trimester. DESIGN In a 4-year long prospective study, 107 second-trimester TOP was performed due to fetal(More)
Non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) is characterised by absence of sperm in the ejaculate. Significant relationship between the pattern of the testis histopathology of NOA and successful sperm retrieval rate is well known. In this study, we assess efficacy of testicular histopathology on sperm retrieval rates and intracytoplasmic sperm injection results after(More)
BACKGROUND Because of the poor sensitivity of urinary cytological findings for the diagnosis of especially low grade urinary bladder carcinoma, new molecular diagnostic methods have been proposed. We decided to verify the ImmunoCyt/uCyt+ (UCyt+) test and cytology combination and cytokeratin 20 (CK20) and cytology combination in urine as possible diagnostic(More)
A 28-year-old woman presented in her first pregnancy was admitted with severe hyperemesis gravidarium. Increased nuchal translucency with cardiac anomaly and omphalocele at the first trimester was observed at the ultrasound examination. Chorionic villus biopsy confirmed triploidy. The combination of type I and type II triploidy patterns were seen together(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effects of corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) on the penetration of topical 0.5% moxifloxacin, on the number of colony-forming units (CFUs) in the cornea, and on the clinical course in a rabbit eye model of experimentally induced Pseudomonas aeruginosa keratitis. METHODS In this prospective animal study, experimental Pseudomonas(More)
We report a case of epidermoid-cell carcinoma of the lung that developed a metastatic lesion in the penis. A 50-year-old male patient was admitted to our hospital with bloody sputum and cough. He had a left pneumectomy and was diagnosed with epidermoid carcinoma of the lung at stage IIB (T2N1M0). He was started on an adjuvant chemotherapy protocol(More)
Appendiceal neuroendocrine tumor (NET) is usually an incidental finding after a laparotomy for appendectomy, with a frequency of 2–5 cases per 1,000 appendectomies. Most appendiceal NETs are less than 2 cm in size and nonmetastasizing [1]. We report an unusual case of an appendiceal NET coexisting with severe endometriosis. The NET did not show any changes(More)
Thrombocytopenia is a frequent finding in patients with solid tumors. It is usually caused by bone marrow infiltration or by myelosuppression due to anticancer therapy; however immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) associated with solid tumors is rare. Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor in children. Here we report the case of a(More)
