Brain tumor growth results from the relative proportion of cells contained in three populations: a) cycling/proliferative; b) quiescent (GO)/static, and c) terminally differentiated/dying. The cycling compartment can be detected by the mouse monoclonal Ki-67 antibody, an available, rapid, safe, sensitive, and specific method for immunostaining of(More)
The developmental anatomy of the striated urinary sphincter remains controversial and is scantly documented in children. We compared its structure and configuration in the fetus, infant and adult to determine anatomical differences among these groups. We removed 25 postmortem specimens from fetuses, infants and children, which were fixed and stained for(More)

He underwent a left inguinal orchiectomy, and the pathology examination revealed a dermoid cyst of the testis. This is a rare tumor, considering the low incidence of testicular tumors in childhood. Histologic criteria and surgical(More)
Two cases of acute haemorrhagic leucoencephalitis localised to the brainstem and cerebellum are reported. One followed the insertion of a ventriculoatrial shunt and the other an upper respiratory tract infection. The rare previously reported cases of this condition involving mainly the posterior fossa structures are reviewed.

Infantile hemangioma is a common benign vascular neoplasm characterized by endothelial cell proliferation. Hemangiomas are one of themost common tumors of infancy and typically present on the head, neck, trunk or extremities.1 There are currently no published cases of clitoral hemangiomas presenting in an infant. In our report, we will describe a five-month(More)
