Breast metastases are usually a rare event. We present the case of a 42-year-old patient with a primary carcinoma of the sigmoid metastatic to the breast and metastasis in the liver as well. Although seldom, it is important that metastatic cancer to the breast be differentiated from primary breast carcinoma as both the treatment and the prognosis differ(More)
During recent years demonstration of human papilloma virus (HPV) in cancers of the lower female genital tract has led to the assumption, that these viruses may be associated with the pathogenesis of these tumors. This theory is particularly important for patients with intraepithelial lesions of the cervix, vagina and vulva, vulvar dystrophies and(More)
We use two kinds of laser treatment, namely, laser vaporisation and laser excision conisation. Laser vaporisation is a widely used method of localised ablative treatment based on both histologically confirmed cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and clear colposcopic visualisation of the upper limit of the lesion. Laser excision conisation is performed, if(More)
We directly compared a monoclonal antibody-based enzyme immunoassay (IDEIA) with isolation of Chlamydia trachomatis in cell culture (Buffalo Green Monkey cells) by changing the transport medium used for the IDEIA test so as to allow use of a single swab for both tests of the two techniques. We also modified the IDEIA test to exclude any possibility of false(More)
Two cases with the finding of psammoma bodies in the cervical smear are reported. The first patient was 44 years old and without clinical evidence of disease. A routine Papanicolaou smear showed multiple psammoma bodies either free or surrounded by an epithelium without striking atypia. The cytologic findings were reported as suspicious of ovarian or(More)
364 women were studied for the possible role of chlamydia trachomatis infection as a factor related to infertility. C. trachomatis was isolated from the cervix in 20% of our high-risk STD patients and in a much lower proportion in patients with tubal (5%) or unexplained (4%) infertility. IgG-antibodies to C. trachomatis were found in 75% of patients with(More)
