Five cases of an unusual pseudoangiomatous variant of spindle cell lipoma are presented. In keeping with more typical cases, these lesions occurred principally in the shoulder and neck regions of adult males. The lesions all had the features of typical spindle cell lipoma but, in addition, exhibited irregular and branching spaces with villiform connective(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to characterize the normal zonal anatomy and vascularity of the cervix on in vivo and in vitro MR images obtained with a receiver coil surrounding the cervix. These appearances provide a normal data base from which to interpret subtle changes in early neoplasia. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thirteen women of reproductive(More)
We describe a patient with relapsing polychondritis who developed fatal cardiac involvement comprising complete heart block, acute aortic incompetence, and cardiovascular collapse. Pathologic studies showed fibrosis of the cardiac conducting system and necrotizing inflammation of the aortic valve, features not previously described in relapsing(More)
9521 Background: This phase I study evaluated the tolerability of clofarabine with liposomal daunorubicin in childhood refractory/relapsed AML. Clofarabine is a purine nucleoside analogue, approved by EMA and FDA in relapsed/refractory childhood ALL but its application in childhood AML is unproven. AML17, the UK front line study for AML is investigating the(More)
Vulval biopsies from a 66-year-old lady complaining of pruritus showed intraepithelial Paget's disease. On simple vulvectomy, extramammary Paget's disease was found to be associated with vulval intra-epithelial neoplasia (VIN III) and superficial dermal invasive adenocarcinoma. Bilateral inguinal lymphadenectomy later revealed metastatic spread of the(More)
A 53-year-old male Caucasian presented with a massive liver tumor composed entirely of spindle-shaped cells showing light-microscopic and ultrastructural evidence of rhabdomyoblastic differentiation. No epithelial or other sarcomatous elements were included. Detailed postmortem examination failed to reveal evidence of metastatic tumor or an alternative(More)
