OBJECTIVE The aim of this paper is to study clinical characteristics, surgical treatment and outcome of patients with solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura operated in our institutions in a 20-year period. METHODS Clinical records of all patients operated for solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura between 1981 and 2000 were reviewed retrospectively. Tumors(More)
We report a retrospective study of the pathological features in 69 primary pulmonary non-Hodgkin's lymphomas which have previously been clinically reviewed. The tumours consisted of 61 (88%) low-grade and eight (12%) high-grade malignant lymphomas. Fifty-four of the low-grade malignant lymphomas were MALT lymphomas. Lymphoepithelial lesions were observed in(More)
Enteroviruses are considered to be the most common agents implicated in myocarditis and cardiomyopathy. Recent studies have suggested persistent enterovirus infection in chronic disease showing the presence of enteroviral RNA in the myocardium. We used gene amplification by PCR which can demonstrate directly the presence of enteroviral sequences in(More)
Recent evidence has shown that most nasal lymphomas (NL) are associated with a T-cell phenotype and are thus called nasal T-cell lymphomas (NTCL), but little information is available about the T-cell receptor (TCR) expression. The presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) genome has been recently reported in NTCL in Oriental populations in which NL and(More)
Wegener's disease is an inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, characterized by a granulomatous-necrotizing general vasculitis. Cardiac involvement in the form of aortic pathology is not frequent. We report a case of Wegener's granulomatosis which required prosthetic aortic valve replacement for aortic valve insufficiency. Microscopic examination of the(More)
Several somatic genetic alterations have been described in non-small-cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC). Recurrent chromosomal deletions have suggested the presence of tumor-suppressor genes specifically involved in lung carcinogenesis. For one of these, 2 non-overlapping regions have been proposed on the short arm of chromosome 8, encompassing the LPL and NEFL(More)
Leiomyosarcoma of the heart is an uncommon primary malignant tumor with poor postoperative survival that may be measured in months. A leiomyosarcoma of the left atrium was diagnosed in a 47-year-old man. Initial admission was for acute pulmonary edema requiring emergency surgery. The tumor involved the left atrial cavity, and a radical resection was(More)
To investigate the molecular events controlling malignant transformation of human pleural cells, we compared constitutive gene expression of mesothelioma cells to that of pleural cells. Using cDNA microarray and high-density filter array, we assessed expression levels of > 6500 genes. Most of the highly expressed transcripts were common to both cell lines(More)
