BACKGROUND Use of the conventional Western and Japanese classification systems of gastrointestinal epithelial neoplasia results in large differences among pathologists in the diagnosis of oesophageal, gastric, and colorectal neoplastic lesions. AIM To develop common worldwide terminology for gastrointestinal epithelial neoplasia. METHODS Thirty one(More)
The authors report the case of a 38 year old man with horseshoe kidney who developed a severe nephroso-nephritis syndrome, caused by cryoglobulinemic membranoproliferative glomerulo-nephritis. A combination of steroid and cyclophosphamide treatment resulted in partial improvement, but was discontinued after 12 weeks due to adverse reactions, with a(More)
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a distinct entity of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, characterized by a proliferation of pleomorphic large lymphoid cells that express CD30. Recent studies have found that a subset of ALCL aberrantly expresses a chimeric anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) protein as a result of t(2;5)(p23;q35) or variant translocations.(More)
A novel cell line, KM-H2, was established from the pleural effusion of a patient with Hodgkin's disease of mixed cellular type. Multiple phenotypic studies were carried out with this cell line. Acid phosphatase and nonspecific esterase activities were detected. Rosette formation with T lymphocytes and the receptors for C3b and Fc portion of IgG were(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine the MR imaging features of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR images of 50 patients with pathologically proven intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma were reviewed retrospectively. T1- and T2-weighted spin-echo images were obtained in all patients. Contrast-enhanced T1-weighted imaging(More)
BACKGROUND Central diabetes insipidus may be familial, secondary to hypothalamic or pituitary disorders, or idiopathic. Idiopathic central diabetes insipidus is characterized by selective hypofunction of the hypothalamic-neurohypophysial system, but its cause is unknown. METHODS We studied 17 patients with idiopathic diabetes insipidus, in whom the(More)
PURPOSE t(8;14)(q24;q32) and/or c-MYC/immunoglobulin heavy-chain (IGH) fusion gene have been observed not only in Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) but also in a proportion of non-BL, diffuse large-cell lymphoma of B-cell type (DLCL). We explored molecular features of DLCL with c-MYC/IGH fusion and the impact of this genetic abnormality on clinical outcome of DLCL.(More)
The clinicopathologic features of 114 Japanese patients with extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the head and neck region were analyzed. The median age was 60.5 years and the male:female ratio was 1.5:1. The most common site of involvement was Waldeyer's ring, followed by the oral cavity, thyroid gland, paranasal sinuses, nasal cavity, and larynx.(More)
One hundred patients with prostate cancer and two different control series [100 benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) patients and 100 general hospital patients] were matched to each other upon hospital admittance, age (+/- 3 years) and date of admission (+/- 3 months), and directly interviewed during admission from 1981 to 1984 in Kyoto, Japan.
