Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a newly established category of RCC composed histologically of characteristic "chromophobe" tumor cells. Although ultrastructural and immunohistochemical studies showed that these tumor cells present several features similar to those found in the intercalated cells of the collecting duct, immunohistochemical studies(More)
Histopathologic prognostic factors of 295 pretreatment tumors of a total 641 neuroblastomas and ganglioneuroblastomas were studied with the use of the following proposed tumor classification. The tumors were divided into 2 groups: stroma-poor (235 cases) and stroma-rich (60 cases) according to their organizational pattern (stromal development). The(More)
Interdigitating dendritic cell sarcoma is an extremely rare neoplasm that mainly occurs in the lymph nodes. We report a case of interdigitating dendritic cell sarcoma arising from the spleen, a previously unreported site for interdigitating dendritic cell sarcoma. An 87-year-old woman, visiting Ashigara Hospital with complaints of palpitation and dyspnea,(More)
Congenital polyvalvular disease (CPVD) is seen in trisomy 18 and other aneuploidy syndromes. However, its extent and nature have not been studied. Gross pathologic and histologic aspects of the heart were studied in 15 autopsied cases of trisomy 18. All had CPVD; other congenital defects included membranous ventricular septal defect (87%), patent ductus(More)
PURPOSE Hepatoblastoma is the most common malignant liver tumor in childhood. Multicenter studies elucidate the optimal pre- or postoperative chemotherapeutic regimens. This report reviews the results of the Japanese Study Group for Pediatric Liver Tumor Protocol-1 (JPLT-1) and compares its outcomes with published reports of other studies. METHODS From(More)
HMB-45-positive clear-cell epithelioid tumor arising in the ligamentum teres hepatis of a 13-year-old Japanese girl is described. The well-defined tumor was completely removed and measured 9 x 7 x 6 cm. Cut sections showed a tan-white, homogeneous appearances with no hemorrhage or necrosis. The tumor was composed of nests or sheets of polygonal or(More)
Effects of L-DOPA (0.1-10,000 nM) on spontaneous release (Sp), evoked release (S) and tissue content (C) of dopamine (DA) were studied comparatively in superfused striatal slices from control and 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated C57 black mice to obtain evidence for L-DOPA-induced facilitation of S via presynaptic(More)
We evaluated neurochemically, behaviorally, and neuropathologically the availability of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated C57 black (BL) mice as a model for Parkinson's disease. The dopamine and 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl acetic acid content in the striatum, measured by high-performance liquid chromatography with an electrochemical(More)
We describe an unusual case of congenital primitive epithelial tumor of the liver with focal rhabdoid features. The present case is unique and informative in the following aspects: (1) a first case of congenital epithelial tumor of the liver with no hepatocytic differentiation but focal rhabdoid features, (2) clinical similarities to multicentric hemangioma(More)
