BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study is to observe the relationship between the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), microvascular density (MVD) and the pathological characteristics of gastric carcinoma. METHODOLOGY A total of 87 cases of gastric carcinomas were examined by immunohistochemical staining, using anti-VEGF and anti-CD34(More)
Ectomesenchymoma (EMCH) is a rare tumor that may arise in the brain or soft tissue. This tumor type is defined as a form including ectodermal components represented by neuroblasts or ganglion cells and differentiated mesenchymal structures of various types.
