This study describes the clinical, histologic, and immunohistochemical features of four cases of GI PEComa. The size of the tumors ranged from 3.5 to 6.0cm in diameter, and all were located in wall of the large bowel. Microscopically, the tumors were characterized by an epithelioid arrangement of tumor cells, which had abundant clear to pale eosinophilic(More)
Primary gastric inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors are rare. Here we report on 5 such cases (4 males and 1 female, age range 36-45 years). Their presenting symptoms included abdominal mass (5 patients), abdominal pain (4 patients), and upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage (1 patient). Tumor size ranged from 4.5 to 8 cm in the greatest dimension.(More)
BACKGROUND Elasticity is an important characteristic of tissue. During an elastography examination, various strain images of lesions are observed, and a suitable classification of strain patterns (SP) may provide vital diagnostic information about lesions. Numerous studies have shown that ultrasound elastography can improve the detection of prostate cancer,(More)
Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a rare acquired paraneoplastic disorder and fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) plays a key role in its pathogenesis. This study was conducted to describe a novel FGF23 detecting procedure and describe clinical features of the disease. Fourteen TIO cases were retrieved and FGF23 expression was measured by quantitative(More)
We report a case of cardiac perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) that occurred in a 10-year-old girl. The patient presented with cardiac murmur and increasing dyspnea. A solid mass was detected in the left atrioventricular groove by sonography and chest computed tomography. Histologic examination revealed a tumor composed of spindle and epithelioid(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the causes and influential factors of renal damage in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Clinical data and pathological findings at autopsy of 161 elderly T2DM patients died between October 1994 and August 2011 were retrospectively reviewed. The mean age of these patients was 80.8 ± 8.3 years(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was to assess the diagnostic value of strain index (SI) for transrectal real-time tissue elastography (TRTE) on differentiating malignant from benign lesions in the prostate peripheral zone. METHODS 83 patients suspected of having prostate cancer (PCa) underwent transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) and TRTE examinations. The lesions in(More)
BACKGROUND Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) account for approximately 30% of non-small cell lung cancer. Investigation of the mechanism of invasion and metastasis of lung SCC will be of great help for the development of meaningful targeted therapeutics. This study is intended to understand whether the activation of Hedgehog (Hh) pathway is involved in lung(More)
Hepatic angiomyolipoma (AML) may demonstrate a marked histologic diversity. We report 5 cases of hepatic AML exhibiting prominent inflammatory cells in the background (inflammatory AML). The patients were 4 females and 1 male, with age ranged from 21 to 48 years (mean, 39.2 years). Three tumors were in the left lobe and 2 in the right lobe. The tumor size(More)
Rho-associated coiled-coil containing protein kinase (ROCK) over-expression has been implicated in the progression of many tumor types. The aim of this study was to explore the roles of ROCK1 and ROCK2 in human laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). ROCK1 and ROCK2 expression levels were examined in 50 cases of human LSCC samples by immunohistochemistry.(More)
