A case of a myxomatous variant of an inflammatory pseudotumor of the lung is reported with clinicopathologic findings including its ultrastructure. The pathologic features of inflammatory pseudotumor of the lung are compared with similar tumors arising elsewhere and bear a close resemblance to granulation tissue, which suggests that inflammatory(More)
The natural histories of stercoraceous and spontaneous perforations of the colon have many similarities which justify their being considered in the same treatise. Both entities are infrequently diagnosed preoperatively, and both entities are associated with a high mortality. Although the incidence of stercoraceous and spontaneous perforations of the colon(More)
Primary lymphoma of the spleen is a relatively rare clinical entity. The majority of patients reported with this entity not only have splenic involvement but also have had lymph node and/or liver involvement. The patient reported presented with splenomegaly and was otherwise asymptomatic. Only splenic involvement was noted at operation and no other(More)
The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) recommends testing coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) strains to determine resistance against oxacillin by testing for mecA, PBP2a, or with cefoxitin disk. However, discrepant results of resistance to oxacillin and susceptibility to cefoxitin were found. In this study, we aimed to investigate the(More)
Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is a relatively uncommon clinical entity. It is essentially characterized by the early onset of multiple basal cell carcinomas of the skin generally above wrist-line level, by the presence of jaw cysts, musculoskeletal and other anomalies. Metastatic disease secondary to ordinary basal cell carcinoma is indeed rare. What(More)
Due to higher I/O count and power delivery problem in deep submicron (DSM) regime, flip-chip technology, especially for area-array architecture, has provided more opportunities for adoption than traditional peripheral bonding design style in high-performance ASIC and microprocessor designs. However it is hard to tell which technique can provide better(More)
The Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute recommends that if both cefoxitin and oxacillin are tested against Staphylococcus aureus and either result is measured as resistant, the organism should be reported as oxacillin resistant. This indicates that discrepancies may be present between oxacillin and cefoxitin sensitivities in S. aureus. In this study, we(More)
This study consists of 71 consecutive surgically resected specimens of lung cancer which were submitted for both light and electron microscopic studies. Eleven of the 71 cancers found in the resected specimens and originally diagnosed by light microscopy had to be reclassified when studied by electron microscopy. All of the reclassified cancers were either(More)
In China and South East Asia, the duck (common duck) is important in egg production for human consumption. Plumage color is a breed characteristic and of economic importance, together with egg production. Our aim in this study was to investigate the inheritance of plumage color in three Chinese indigenous egg-type duck breeds, Shan Ma (S), Putian White (F)(More)
