IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is considered a fibro-inflammatory condition with a marked propensity to form mass forming lesions, characterized by a dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate, the presence of abundant IgG4+ plasma cells, frequent elevation of serum IgG4 and a dramatic initial response to glucocorticoid. Nowadays, IgG4-RD has been described in(More)
IgG4-related disease is a newly recognized fibro-inflammatory condition characterized by several features: a tendency to form tumefactive lesions in multiple sites; a characteristic histopathological appearance; and-often but not always-elevated serum IgG4 concentrations. An international symposium on IgG4-related disease was held in Boston, MA, on 4-7(More)
A subjective sense of uncertainty is a common theme in the experience of patients with epilepsy. Lack of control has also been implicated as an etiologic factor in the development of psychosocial problems in epilepsy. Cognitive-behavioral interventions emphasizing the mediating role of thoughts and self-control appear to be particularly relevant for(More)
Clinicians are often confronted with the self-report of memory difficulties by patients. This study explored the possible correlates of subjective memory in 67 adult Chinese patients with epilepsy in Hong Kong. These correlates include epilepsy-related factors, mood state, and actual performance on neuropsychological tests. Results suggested that there(More)
Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) is known to be associated with 3 distinct lymphoproliferative disorders: primary effusion lymphoma (PEL), multicentric Castleman disease (MCD), and MCD-associated plasmablastic lymphoma. We report 3 cases of a previously undescribed KSHV-associated lymphoproliferative disorder. The disease presented as localized(More)
UNLABELLED Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) are categorized as intermediate biologic neoplasms, whereas IMTs with genetic features of ran-binding protein 2 (RANBP2) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement (IMT-RAs) are possibly related to a more aggressive clinical course. However, fewer than 10 cases of IMT-RA have been reported to(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about sex knowledge, attitudes, and high-risk sexual behaviors among unmarried youth in Hong Kong. It is of public health importance to investigate this topic to inform sex education, policymaking, and prevention and intervention programs. METHODS Based on the Youth Sexuality Survey conducted by Hong Kong Family Planning(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to study the sera of patients with lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of the lung for circulating EBV DNA. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Prospectively collected serum samples from five female patients with advanced, inoperable LELC of the lung were measured for free circulating EBV DNA using a quantitative PCR technique.(More)
UNLABELLED We present here an intriguing case of sporadic renal haemangioblastoma occurring in a 61-year-old male. The tumor consisted of nests of polygonal cells and abundant capillary networks. The neoplastic cells generally showed abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and prominent eccentric nuclei, resembling the rhabdoid cells. Pronounced intranuclear(More)
