Axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) has traditionally been the principal method for evaluating axillary lymph node status in breast cancer patients. In the past decades sentinel lymph nodes biopsy after lymphatic mapping has been used to stage the disease. The majority of sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) positive patients do not have additional metastases in(More)
AIMS Staging for liver fibrosis is recommended in the management of hepatitis C as an argument for treatment priority. Our aim was to construct a noninvasive algorithm to predict the significant liver fibrosis (SLF) using common biochemical markers and compare it with some existing models. METHODS The study group included 104 consecutive cases; SLF was(More)

INTRODUCTION It has been confirmed, that there is a causal relationship between persistent infection of high risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) and the development of cervical cancer. In population of women older than 30 years HPV infection becomes a significant etiological factor of precancerous lesion of the cervix, but HPV infection may spontaneously(More)

The authors present a unique case of small cell variant of clear cell sarcoma of soft parts in a 42-year old woman. The tumor originally arose in the right flank of the soft tissues and ultimately developed both a local recurrence and multiple distant skin metastases two years and ten months thereafter. Nonspecific morphology of small blue round cell tumor(More)
Primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast is a rare tumor that comprises less than 1% of breast carcinomas, with most patients being in the sixth or seventh decade of their life. In this article, the authors present the case report of a 42-year-old woman with a rapidly growing tumor in her right breast. After clinical staging by physical examination,(More)
Presented is a case of 59-year-old woman with longstanding neck pain who has been promptly operated for spinal cord compression. Imaging studies disclosed ill-defined cervical paravertebral soft tissue mass at the level of vertebra C5/6 abutting left-sided intervertebral joint and destroying neighboring both vertebral arch and processus spinosus.

Mammary fibromatosis is a rare and locally aggressive benign tumor of the breast; it originates from fibroblasts and myofibroblasts within the breast parenchyma and does not metastasize. The condition is locally aggressive and has a high rate of recurrence. The etiology of mammary fibromatosis is unknown. Breast imaging examinations are not specific for(More)
