Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a rare metastasizing soft tissue tumor with deceptively bland histologic features. The hyalinizing spindle cell tumor with giant rosettes (HSCT) is thought to be a closely related tumor differing only by the presence of collagen rosettes. We report the occurrence of a common t(7;16)(q34;p11) translocation in 2 cases(More)
Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver is generally considered to be benign in nature, and surgical excision has been the treatment of choice. There have been 3 reports on the association of cytogenetic abnormalities with this tumor, and the possibility of malignant potential has been raised. The authors report a fourth case with a previously unreported complex(More)
It is often suggested that the political attitudes and social participation which have underpinned the welfare-state democracies have depended on large amounts of upward social mobility. The demographic heterogeneity of the service class, according to this view, induced in them a willingness to lead a common political project seeking to establish a common(More)
Detection of EWSR1 translocations - particularly t(11;22)(q24;q12) - is of great value in the differential diagnosis of the Ewing family of tumors. We report two cases that highlight the problems and pitfalls of identifying Ewing tumors using conventional chromosome analysis and a commercial EWSR1 fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) probe. In both(More)
Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma (EMC) is a rare soft tissue tumor associated with the translocation t(9;22)(q22;q11-12). Although it has a typical microscopic appearance its morphologic spectrum is wide. We report a case of clinically aggressive, poorly differentiated EMC showing the characteristic translocation, which presented initially as a poorly(More)
AIMS Poorly differentiated areas in synovial sarcomas (SS) are known to be associated with a poorer prognosis. The aim of our study was to describe the morphological spectrum of poorly differentiated synovial sarcomas (PDSS) and refine the criteria for their recognition. METHODS AND RESULTS The clinicopathological features of 28 PDSS were compared with(More)
The seat belt usage of drivers was observed at the entrance to two campus parking lots during morning arrival times. After 11 days of baseline, fliers which prompted seat belt wearing were handed to drivers of incoming vehicles. At one parking lot all fliers offered a chance to win a prize (noncontingent rewards); while at the second lot only those fliers(More)
