Two patients, one with a vaginal and the other with a vulvar mass underwent surgical intervention with different preoperative diagnoses; the former as vaginal cyst and the latter as vulvar hernia. Unfortunately, the pathological evaluation of the specimens revealed(More)
Aggressive angiomyxoma is an uncommon soft tissue tumor which preferentially involves pelvic and vulvoperineal regions of young adult females. The typical characteristics include gelatinous appearance and locally infiltrative nature without evidence of nuclear atypia or mitosis. Treatment involves surgery, but local recurrence is high in spite of apparently(More)

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the possible protective effects of vitamin E and EGb 761 treatments, alone or in combination, against oxidative renal tissue damage in experimentally induced endotoxaemic rats. Fifty healthy male Wistar albino rats, weighing 150-250 g and averaging 12 weeks old, were allotted randomly into one of five(More)
BACKGROUND Early placental development is associated with complex regulatory mechanisms, and molecular communication problems that arise during the developmental process are dangerous for continuation of the pregnancy. As studies on the process of invasion and migration of trophoblast cells have shown the importance of cell-cell and cell-matrix(More)
Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a diagnostic tool used in the clinical workup of solitary thyroid nodules; however, differential cytologic diagnosis of these nodules often is challenging. With the goal of identifying cytologic findings that could improve predictions regarding the presence of neoplastic lesions, the authors performed a(More)
To present a unique case of a 63 year-old woman with coexistent adenocarcinoma of the ovary, endometrium, cervix and fallopian tube. A case report from a tertiary health center. A woman presenting with postmenopausal bleeding and abdominal distantion was assessed by endometrial biopsy and explorative surgery. The frozen section of the mass on the right(More)
Focal calcification is an occasional tubular abnormality seen in minimal-change nephrotic syndrome. Nephrocalcinosis was also reported in premature infants as a consequence of hypercalciuria resulting from long-term furosemide therapy. We describe 4 nephrotic children (3 minimal change, 1 diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis) with transient(More)
