In order to determine the positivity rate and genotype of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in cases with Hodgkin's disease (HD) in Turkey, 40 tissue specimens from HD patients were analysed. Ten non-lymphoid tissue samples from individuals without any evidence for lymphoma were used as controls. The cases with HD included 33 males and 7 females with a mean age of(More)
The utility of staining Reed-Sternberg (RS) cells with CD30, CD15 and CD45 as a diagnostic aid in Hodgkin's disease (HD) and the value of microwave citrate antigen retrieval (AR) method in improving the results of immunohistochemical (IHC) studies were evaluated. Histological and immunohistological studies were carried out on 21 patients with HD seen from(More)
Mullerian adenosarcoma of the uterus is a biphasic tumor exhibiting benign epithelial and malignant stromal component. This tumor may occasionally be associated with tamoxifen therapy which is used as an adjuvant drug for breast carcinoma. Reviewing the literature, we found only 12 adenosarcoma cases associated with tamoxifen therapy Thus, the clinical and(More)
We present a rare case of a placental teratoma found within the fetal membranes of an otherwise normal placenta. Lack of a recognizable umbilical cord and no recognizable skeletal development are used as differential diagnostic criteria for a placental teratoma. In our case, an umbilical cord was absent; nevertheless, the tumor contained two vascular(More)
This article reviews the clinical behavior, histologic features, differential diagnosis, and treatment of a benign osteoblastoma. Benign osteoblastoma is a rare tumor constituting 1% of all primary bone tumors. Only 15% of osteoblastomas occur in the skull and jaw bones. The most common clinical presentation is a painful or tender swelling. A case is(More)
OBJECTIVE In the present study, we aimed to determine the protective effect of the perfusion of the distal aorta with diltiazem and ringer lactate solution on the spinal cord. METHODS Twenty-seven New Zealand rabbits were used in which spinal cord ischemia was provided by occlusion of the aorta for thirty minutes. Experimental animals were divided into(More)
Salivary gland tumors are the second most common neoplasm of the mouth following squamous cell carcinoma, and account for a significant proportion of oral tumors. We report a case of an unusual adenoma that presented as a solitary intraoral buccal mass in a 28-year-old male patient. The tumor was intrepreted as an unusual pleomorphic adenoma because of the(More)
Cell kinetic information is an important adjuvant to histological grading in some malignant tumors. In the current study, 20 endometrial adenocarcinomas were graded according to the 1988 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and nuclear grading system and the expression of silver-stained nucleolar organizer regions (AgNOR) and(More)
Endocervical stromal sarcoma (ECSS) is a very rare uterine sarcoma. The most common presentation is pelvic mass and vaginal bleeding. The mainstay of treatment is surgery. There is no consensus on the adjuvant treatment. Relapses are usually in the pelvic and abdominal regions. To a lesser extent, lung, liver and bone metastases may be seen. A 46-year-old(More)
