Chest wall hamartomas are extremely rare. Frequently mesenchymal hamartomas are presented as a single mass and contain some primitive mesenchymal elements such as chondroid and trabecular bone structures. A 60-year-old man presented to hospital with chest pain. Thirteen years earlier, his CXR and thoracic CT showed three masses on the right and two masses(More)
Granulomatous hypophysitis (GrHy) is a relatively rare inflammatory disease compared with lymphocytic hypophysitis. Only a few cases with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings have been reported to date. We describe the MRI findings for two patients with GrHy with unusual histories and clinical outcomes.
Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by gastrointestinal polyps, mucocutaneous pigmentation and an increased risk for cancer. In this report, a 34-year-old woman with PJS associated with a rare ovarian tumor (gonadoblastoma) and synchronous breast and cervical carcinoma is discussed and the relevant literature is(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the frequency of clinical apparent amyloid deposition, clinical features and outcome in our rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. METHODS Medical records of 1415 RA patients were examined. During routine follow-up, RA patients with proteinuria on urinalysis, underwent rectal biopsy. RESULTS Eleven patients (0.78%) were diagnosed(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of methylene blue (MB) in preventing renal scar formation after the induction of pyelonephritis (PNP) in a rat model with delayed antimicrobial therapy. An inoculum of the K-12 strain of Escherichia coli was injected into both kidneys. Control groups received isotonic saline instead of bacterial solution.(More)
We aimed to evaluate histopathological changes, to detect HIF-1α staining intensities and to determine MDA levels in rat ovaries, which were subjected to torsion and detorsion and treated with l-carnitine or N-acetyl cysteine (NAC). Forty-eight prepubertal female Sprague–Dawley rats were divided into five groups (n = 8): 1, control; 2, ischemia; 3,(More)
The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ composed of stable cells. It is well known that regenerative capacity of the thyroid tissue is minimal. Various degrees of morphologic alterations do occur in chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (CLT), including Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Eighty-five CLT cases were analyzed for these morphologic alterations. Small,(More)
Several studies performed on pancreatic-duodenal homeobox 1 (PDX1) have demonstrated a loss of expression and negative tumor modulator effect in gastric carcinoma. Relations between PDX1 and gastric metaplasia, differentiated type of gastric carcinoma, and the early stage of the disease have been exhibited in previous reports. The aim of this study was to(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the relation between uptake ratios of Tc-99m sestamibi (MIBI) and tumor volume, serum biochemical values (i-PTH, Ca, P) and oxyphil cell content. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study population consisted of 19 patients (2 M, 17 F; mean +/- SD: 47 +/- 12 y). Anterior planar images of the neck and chest were acquired(More)
