The histologic, morphometric, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural study of a malignant Brenner tumor in a postmenopausal women presenting with vaginal bleeding is described. A comparison with transitional cell carcinomas is made, and the use of morphometry in grading the urothelial-like epithelium in malignant Brenner tumors is suggested. High(More)
Macroscopic and histologic findings in 11 patients operated on for isolated tubal torsion suggested a common pathophysiologic process. During laparotomy, tubal torsion appeared to involve the fimbrial end of the fallopian tube, distal to the site of compression by the sterilization procedure, the ovarian ligament, or a dense adhesion. Histologic study of(More)
The presence of steroid receptors (82 tumors) and aromatase activity (39 tumors) in ovarian carcinomas was correlated with patient survival. No statistically significant correlation was found between the presence or absence of estrogen receptors (ER, 56.1%), progesterone receptors (PR, 57.3%), androgen receptors (AR, 91.5%), or aromatase activity (33.3%)(More)
During the last decade there has been an increasing interest in the use of the colposcope. A quality-control study for the evaluation and understanding of the limitations of cytology and colposcopy in our clinic is presented. The results in 132 patients are analysed and compared to previous reports from the literature. Cytologic results correlated with the(More)
Cervical microglandular hyperplasia is an unusual lesion that may confused with malignancy, by both macroscopic and colposcopic examinations. Even the cytologic and histologic characteristics may mimic an adenocarcinoma. When, in addition, the simultaneous occurrence of an area of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia is found, it could complicate the correct(More)
It is generally accepted to consider vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia grade III (VIN III) a premalignant condition. The lesion is more frequently diagnosed in younger patients. Conventional surgical treatment is often mutilating and recurrence rates have been reported of approximately 30%. Laser vaporization is a promising alternative therapy. Ten patients(More)
Morphological changes are described in pelvic lymph nodes excised 10 days after C. parvum (CP) treatment of patients with cervical carcinoma. Guinea-pig popliteal and inguinal lymph nodes were investigated from Days 1 to 10 after an injection of 70 micrograms CP into the footpad. Eosinophils were detected from the first few hours after stimulation,(More)
