We report 18 such cases of zygomycotic necrotizing fasciitis, of these, 15 were immunocompetent. Of the eight cases cultured, five were positive for Apophysomyces elegans. A retrospective case review conducted at a(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) secreted by tumor cells in angiogenesis of breast carcinoma using image morphometry. STUDY DESIGN Thirty-four cases of node-negative breast carcinoma were used in the study. There were 6 grade 1, 20 grade 2 and 8 grade 3 tumors. For each case, 2 consecutive sections from the same(More)
A 14-year-old hypertensive boy was evaluated in our clinic. The physical examination was essentially normal except for his high blood pressure. Laboratory findings showed increased plasma renin activity. Abdominal ultrasonography detected a hypoechoic, 2-cm mass in right kidney. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen revealed a(More)
OBJECTIVE To mathematically assess in a pilot study, endometrial glandular margin irregularity in simple hyperplasia, complex atypical hyperplasia and well-differentiated endometrial carcinoma with the help of box counting of fractal dimension and to discriminate these lesions on the basis of box counting of fractal dimension of the gland. STUDY DESIGN(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the role of automated image morphometry (AIM) in distinguishing infiltrating lobular carcinoma (ILC) of the breast from benign, borderline and infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDC). STUDY DESIGN Only histopathologically proven lobular carcinoma, ductal carcinoma, borderline lesions and benign breast lesions were selected for the study.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if image morphometry has any role in distinguishing blasts of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL-L2) from those of acute myeloid leukemia (AML-M1) and (AML-M2). STUDY DESIGN Ten cases each of ALL-L2, AML-M1 and AML-M2 diagnosed according to the French-American-British criteria were studied. In all cases May-Grünwald-Giemsa-stained(More)
BACKGROUND Demyelinating diseases can present as space occupying lesions with in the brain. It is clinically and radiologically difficult to differentiate them from primary neoplasms. Histopathologically they mimic astrocytic neoplasms closely and identifying these lesions correctly has a profound impact in treatment and prognosis of these patients. AIMS(More)
