OBJECTIVE To study the frequency of regional lymph node metastasis of soft tissue tumors (STT) and to evaluate the utility of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) as an initial investigative modality. STUDY DESIGN A prospective and retrospective study of over 6 years (1998-2004) was performed to look for frequency of STT metastasizing to lymph nodes.(More)
Subcutaneous myxopapillary ependymoma in a sacrococcygeal location is an uncommon lesion. We report such a case in a 16-mo-old female child, who presented with a sacrococcygeal mass since birth. The cytological picture was that of a malignant small round cell tumor and the diagnosis was missed on cytology, which was retrospectively confirmed on comparison(More)
Chronic myeloid leukemia is a myeloproliferative disorder characterized by the presence of the Philadelphia chromosome, t(9:22). Extramedullary blast crisis is a rare event. Imatinib mesylate has become the treatment of choice, especially for patients for whom allogenic stem cell transplantation is not an option. Imatinib produces complete cytogenetic(More)
BACKGROUND Lymph node infarction is known to occur in association with many non-neoplastic and neoplastic conditions however its occurrence in association with DIC is not reported hitherto in the literature. CASE PRESENTATION We describe an unusual case of lymph node infarction in a twenty seven year old male following disseminated intravascular(More)
BACKGROUND Hydatid disease is caused by Echinococcus granulosus, endemic in cattle and sheep-raising regions of the world such as Central Europe, South America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Although hydatid disease is more common in liver and lung, it also affects brain, kidney, spleen and muscle. We present a case of intraabdominal hydatid(More)
An 8-year-old girl presented with severe autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) in association with mediastinal widening. Biopsy of mediastinal lymph node confirmed the diagnosis of tuberculosis. A diagnosis of disseminated tuberculosis in association with AIHA was made, and the patient was treated with steroids and antitubercular therapy. This is the first(More)
The role of fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the diagnosis of benign skin lesions has been restricted primarily to the evaluation of bacteriologic and morphologic indices in leprosy. This study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of FNAC in the diagnosis and classification of lepromatous lesions. Aspirates of 94 newly diagnosed cases of leprosy(More)
Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a subtype of paraneoplastic syndrome associated with hypophosphatemia due to renal phosphate wasting in adults. The humoral factor responsible for clinical picture known as fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is most often secreted by benign yet elusive mesenchymal tumors, difficult to localize, access, and excise(More)
