Heat shock protein (HSP) is thought to play important roles in the cell cycle and various process of carcinogenesis. This study was performed to evaluate the expression of heat shock protein (HSP70) and estrogen receptor (ER) and Ki-67 and to assess relationship between them in cervical squamous cell neoplasia. The materials were 50 cervical squamous cell(More)
Urethral caruncles are the most common benign tumors in the female urethra, and are usually found in the posterior lip of the urethral meatus of post-menopausal women. It is very rare in young girls. Its etiology is unknown. We add a case of urethral caruncle occurring in a 2 year and 5 month-old girl's mid-urethra. We believe that further accumulation of(More)
BACKGROUND Chemotherapy resistance presents a difficult challenge in treating epithelial ovarian cancer patients, particularly when tumors exhibit resistance to multiple chemotherapeutic agents. A few studies have shown that elevated serum levels of the ovarian cancer biomarker HE4 correlate with tumor chemoresistance, response to treatment, and survival.(More)
Although light microscopic features of muscle are not pathognomonic in most cases of myasthenia gravis (MG), careful examination of neuromuscular junction by electron microscopy (EM) can reveal important clues for this disease. We report here a case of MG confirmed by EM study to emphasize that tissue diagnosis is still the best adjuvant to confirm the(More)
We reviewed dinical, histological and ultrastructural findings of 124 cases of sural nerve biopsy specimens to delineate the trends of peripheral nerve diseases in our institute. Eighty-one were men and 43 were women. We categorized them into five groups: specific diagnosis (66 cases, 53.2%), axonal degeneration type (47 cases, 37.9%), demyelinating type (4(More)
A button battery inserted in the nose of children is an unusual foreign body which is capable of causing extensive tissue damage, resulting from electrical and chemical burns. We report a case of button battery in the nose of a 4-year-old boy presenting with unilateral nasal discharge, and necrosis in the septum and turbinate of the right nasal cavity.(More)
Ureteral fibroepithelial polyp is an unusual benign tumor of a mesodermal origin. It is very rare in infants and children, and the majority of them, excluding ones secondary to chronic irritation, were presented as a single disease without associated lesion. We report a case of multiple ureteral fibroepithelial polyps associated with ureteropelvic junction(More)
Acute brachial neuropathy (ABN) is a rare disease, characterized by an acute or subacute onset of pain followed by weakness of shoulder or arm muscles without trauma or traction injury. So the diagnosis of this clinical entity is not easy. The purpose of this study was to analyze retrospectively the ABN in 14 cases focusing on the clinical profile and to(More)
