We report the case of a 5-year-old girl with persistent chest X-ray abnormalities following an episode of pneumonia who has a complex congenital pulmonary malformation comprising of a congenital pulmonary airway malformation, an intralobar sequestration and two bronchogenic cysts, all present within the same lobe. The observation suggests a common(More)
An 18-year-old boy presented with elbow synovitis. Investigations disclosed an osteoid osteoma of the coronoid fossa confirmed by histology. The synovium appeared hypertrophic with histologic patterns resembling those seen in synovitis in rheumatoid arthritis. Immunohistochemistry showed lymphoid follicles composed of B and T cells. T lymphocytes were(More)
OBJECTIVES Capsular ruptures play a major role in recurrences of parotid pleomorphic adenomas. The aim of this retrospective study was to define histomorphological characteristics of pleomorphic adenoma in order to define possible recurrence mechanisms and to set a clear surgical management. MATERIAL AND METHOD Histological study was performed after(More)
In this study, the authors report two observations of granulomatous hepatitis. The secondary appearance of a mononucleosis syndrome, three weeks after the onset of fever, in healthy adults, evoked the diagnosis of a cytomegalovirus infection. The authors insist on the histologic and virologic differences of the CMV infection between the healthy adults and(More)
INTRODUCTION The role of fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the management of parotid tumours is still the subject of controversy. The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of FNAC in our institution in order to define its place in the diagnostic strategy. PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study was based on 249 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE The real issue of parotid surgery for pleomorphic adenoma is its risk of recurrence. The aim of this study was to compare the changing attitudes towards the pathology and surgical treatment in order to better define prevention and management of pleomorphic adenoma recurrences. MATERIAL AND METHOD Histological study was performed after reviewing(More)
The diagnosis of a metastatic kidney tumor arising in a 2-month infant is discussed between atypical mesoblastic nephroma and clear cell sarcoma. The precocity of distant metastases, their location in bone marrow, liver and thoracic soft tissues, and their association with myelofibrosis set up an original clinical presentation which seems to have never been(More)
PURPOSE OF STUDY To establish a diagnosis and therapeutic management in patients with extramedullar plasmocytomas. METHOD There is no consensus concerning extramedullar plasmocytoma treatment. One patient with a nasal cavity tumor location and a review of literature are reported. RESULTS Extramedullar plasmocytoma is a rare tumor that occurs most(More)
An immunohistochemical study using two monoclonal antibodies (MoAb 30 and MoAb 47) against thyroid peroxidase (TPO) was performed on surgical specimens of human thyroid carcinoma (n = 65), adenoma (n = 70) and Graves' disease (n = 10). Normal adjacent thyroid tissue was used as positive control. Monoclonal antibody 30 reacted significantly with all adenoma(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to assess and compare the diagnostic value of fine-needle cytology and MRI for the prediction of malignancy in parotid tumors. During an 11-year period, 148 patients underwent preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology in our institution. Eighty-seven patients underwent a preoperative MRI study, and 54 had both MRI(More)
