A recent paper has again drawn attention to the occurrence of intraplacental choriocarcinoma. We present a similar case in which a small intraplacental choriocarcinoma was identified after delivery of a full-term stillborn fetus. Interpretation of this lesion was influenced by the presence of normal villi and its full significance appreciated only after(More)
A total of 68 men (mean age 66.2 years) were treated for a primary carcinoma of the breast at Mount Vernon Hospital between January 1968 and June 1988. The mean duration of the symptoms before diagnosis was 13.3 months. The most common sign of presentation (60% of the patients) was a mass in the breast (mean size 3.9 cm). Thirty-three tumours (48.5%) were(More)
Between 1975 and 1984, 125 cases of histologically confirmed soft tissue sarcomata (STS) were registered in the Department of Clinical Oncology in Edinburgh. Of these, 100 were eligible for analysis of prognostic factors. The overall 5-year survival rate was 21.5%. Univariate analysis demonstrated that extent of surgery, radical versus palliative or no(More)
Metastatic Crohn's disease (MCD) indicates the presence of non-caseating granuloma of the skin at sites separated from the gastrointestinal tract by normal tissue and is the least common dermatologic manifestation of CD. In adults, MCD usually appears after the initial diagnosis of CD in 70% of cases, whereas in children, it appears at the same time as CD(More)
Metastatic tumors to the hands and feet (acrometastases) are rare. We report a case in which the primary presentation of a lung carcinoma was a metastatic lesion to the distal phalanx of the hallux. A 60-year-old woman was evaluated for pain in her big toe. Radiographs and computed tomography suggested a benign lesion in the distal phalanx of the hallux,(More)
Epididymal Metastasis from a primary carcinoma of the prostate gland is a rare but recognised phenomena. We describe a case of such metastasis which, unlike previous reports, presents as a painful epididymal mass. Therefore it is important for urologists to consider epididymal metastasis as part of the differential diagnosis in a patient with known(More)
BACKGROUND Gut involvement in inflammatory myositis is rare but causes significant morbidity and mortality. CASE REPORT A case of eosinophilic gastroenteritis and polymyositis occurring in the same patient is described. The interface of visceral and striated muscle involvement is discussed. The pathophysiology of eosinophilic gastroenteritis and the(More)
