PURPOSE Phthisis bulbi represents an ocular end-stage disease characterized by shrinkage and disorganization of the eye. We aim at identifying the pathologic changes of phthisis bulbi associated with retinoblastoma. DESIGN Retrospective observational case series study. METHODS 16 enucleated eyes were enrolled retrospectively between 2007 and 2012.(More)
Cellular angiofibroma is a benign mesenchymal neoplasm of female and male genital tract composed of prominent vasculature and stromal spindle cells, often with admixture of adipose tissue. The tumor has histomorphologic similarities to angiomyofibroblastoma and spindle cell lipoma. Herein we describe a tumor arising in the perineal region of a 60-year-old(More)
The client-server paradigm is very popular in building distributed computing applications. Heterogeneity is natural in client-server systems, where components implemented using different technologies must interact and collaborate with each other. Inter-operability is provided through middleware on such a heterogeneous system. Common Object Request Broker(More)
Chorangioma has been referred to as a hamartoma-like, or a hyperplastic capillary lesion, rather than a true neoplasm. Its incidence is 1 in 100 placentas. In chorangiomas larger than 4 cm, there can be significant effects on the hemodynamic and circulatory processes of the fetus, leading to grave clinical consequences, such as polyhydramnios and fetal(More)
iii To My Mother and in Memory of My Father iv ABSTRACT The interest in relating Software Architecture specification to Software Performance Analysis has been growing rapidly in the past few years. However, there is still a gap between the software development and the performance analysis domains. The main reasons for having this gap has been the lack of a(More)
The quality of many software intensive systems is determined to a large extent by their performance characteristics, such as response time and throughput. The developers of such systems should be able to assess and understand the performance effects of various design decisions starting at an early stage, when changes are easy and less expensive, and(More)
Intraosseous benign notochordal cell tumor is a presumably benign, intravertebral lesion of notochord origin, which can be found incidentally on removal of the vertebra for unrelated lesions or during an autopsy. The notion of a larger benign notochordal cell tumor that is macroscopic, occasionally symptomatic, and seen radiologically was recently(More)

Wandering or ectopic spleen is an exceptionally rare condition. Because of the abnormally long pedicle, an ectopic spleen is prone to torsion and infarction. Patients can present with abdominal pain or an acute abdomen. The incidence is over a wide age range, but it occurs with a female predominance in the third to fifth decades. We present a case in a(More)
Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a locally aggressive, benign bone tumor that commonly affects children. Metachronous ABCs are rare, and have been described only three times in the literature. Here we present a fourth case in a 9-year-old boy who presented with an ABC of the scapula; 2½ years later he presented with a tibial ABC. We also review the literature(More)
