Hybrid tumours are very rare tumour entities which are composed of two different tumour entities, each of which conforms with an exactly defined tumour category. The tumour entities of a hybrid tumour are not separated but have an identical origin within the same topographical area. In contrast, biphasically differentiated tumours are a mixture of two(More)
Lactoferrin and lysozyme, parts of the non-specific defense system, were studied in normal and diseased parotid glands, using the immunohistochemical PAP-method. 31 normal and inflamed glands were investigated. The presence of lactoferrin and lysozyme was demonstrated in the acinar cells and some duct cells. The amount of these substances was increased in(More)
BACKGROUND Anastomotic leakage of esophagogastric and esophagojejunal anastomoses is a severe complication after esophagectomy and gastrectomy associated with a high mortality. We conducted this non-randomized observational study to evaluate the outcomes and clinical effectiveness of covered self-expanding stents (CSESs) in treating esophageal anastomotic(More)
In the Salivary Gland Register (University of Hamburg), 9883 cases were recorded from 1965 to 1984. Among these cases there were 3,326 neoplasms, of which 3,017 were epithelial in origin. In this latter group, 80 neoplasms arose in children and adolescents. Among these 80 persons, there was a slight predominance of females; 57 tumors (71%) were localized in(More)
Five cases of adenolymphoma (Warthin's tumor) (AL) with numerous sarcoid-like granulomas within the lymphoid stroma are described. All patients were males, aged from 44 to 71 years (mean 57.3 years); all tumors were localized in the parotid gland. Fine needle aspiration cytology was performed in two cases 7.5 and 2 weeks before operation, respectively.(More)
The principles of the proposed modified WHO Histological Typing of Salivary Gland Tumours are based on the following: 1) The classification of tumours is oriented to the routine work of the practicing surgical pathologists, those who do not see tumours of the salivary glands very often. The inclusion of rare, but clearly defined tumour entities should be(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the filament distribution in the parotid gland and their tumors. A correlation to the histogenetic implications and histological properties was attempted. Normal rat and human parotid glands as well as pleomorphic adenomas and squamous cell carcinomas of this gland were examined by the indirect immunoperoxidase technique(More)
