BACKGROUND Cytological grading is a useful tool for selection of therapy and prognosis in breast carcinoma. Despite having many cytological grading systems, there is still no agreement among pathologists to accept one of them as a gold standard. AIM This study was undertaken to evaluate six such three-tier cytological grading systems to determine which(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE There is scarcity of clinical data regarding hydatid lung disease from Indian subcontinent. In this retrospective study we analyzed the cumulative data over five year's period from two tertiary care hospitals of Kolkata to determine the presentation, treatment and outcome of hydatid disease of lung.

Exstrophy of the bladder is a rare congenital anomaly with an incidence of about 1 per 50,000 newborns. The malignant potential of the exstrophied bladder mucosa is well known; 95% are adenocarcinomas, and 3% to 5% are squamous cell carcinomas. Most of the malignant tumors (60%) associated with an exstrophy of the bladder occur during the fourth and fifth(More)

Primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the renal parenchyma is a very unusual entity which needs to be differentiated from primary SCC of renal pelvis, SCC from another primary site, and urothelial carcinoma with extensive squamous differentiation. We are most probably describing the second case of primary SCC of the renal parenchyma in a 51-year-old male(More)
Hemoglobinopathies are common genetic disorders of haemoglobin. Identification of these disorders is immensely important epidemiologically and they can be prevented by population screening. The present study was carried out to evaluate the spectrum of hemoglobinopathies in the state of West Bengal by the cation-exchange high-performance liquid(More)
