Since 1983, we have been initiating prophylactic instillation of doxorubicin hydrochloride (DXR) on the first post-transurethral resection (TUR) day. This study was conducted to define serum uptake of DXR and systemic(More)
One invasive and 4 superficial bladder cancers were treated by local injection of absolute ethanol through an endoscope. With the patient placed in the lithotomy position, an endoscope was introduced after mucosal anesthesia with xylocaine jelly. According to the usual manner of retrograde catheterization, a 23G syringe needle attached to a 5F ureteral(More)
Two patients with primary gastric lymphoma, diffuse lymphoma, a plasmacytoid variant of small cell type, with numerous intranuclear inclusions, are reported. In both cases, biopsy and surgical specimens showed diffuse proliferation of lymphoid cells having plasmacytoid features at different steps of maturation in lamina propria and submucosal layer. The(More)
