BACKGROUND & AIMS The evaluation of the degree of hepatic fibrosis is especially important in patients with chronic liver disease. The aim of this study was to study the diagnostic accuracy of noninvasive means. METHODS Sixty-three clinical, biochemical (prothrombin index, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase and apolipoprotein A1 levels [PGA score]; and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The primary prevention of bleeding from esophageal varices is a major therapeutic issue requiring early screening of esophageal varices. Our aim was to study the diagnostic accuracy of non-endoscopic means for the diagnosis of esophageal varices. METHODS Sixty-three clinical, biochemical, endoscopic and Doppler ultrasound variables were(More)
Neoplasms of reticular dendritic origin are extremely rare and include the follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) and the interdigitating reticulum (or dendritic) cell sarcoma (IDCS). In this article, we review the literature pertaining to the two diseases and describe clinical observations and salient pathologic features, including information provided(More)
We reviewed 72 primary central nervous system lymphomas occurring in immunocompetent patients. The cases were reviewed for clinical data, histology, immunophenotype, bcl-2 and p53 expression, and Epstein-Barr virus association. Follow-up was available for 40 patients included in the Groupe Ouest Est d'étude des Leucénies et Autres Maladies du Sang (GOELAMS)(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Evaluation of the degree of hepatic fibrosis is especially important in patients with chronic liver disease. Our aim was to study the diagnostic accuracy of abdominal ultrasonography for cirrhosis or fibrosis. METHODS Twenty-three clinical (n=12) and Doppler ultrasonic (n=11) variables were recorded in 243 patients with chronic (alcoholic(More)
Adrenal involvement in the course of a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) appears to occur relatively often, but only seven cases of NHL-induced adrenal insufficiency were found in a recent review of the literature. The authors report four cases of hypoadrenalism in 127 patients treated for NHL; the cases were staged and classified according to the Working(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Liver fibrosis is mainly evaluated by qualitative histological examination. Although histological semi-quantitative scores and quantitative determination with image analysis are now possible, these methods have not been fully validated and compared. Therefore, we evaluated these two methods prospectively in 243 patients with chronic liver(More)
OBJECTIVE Because oligodendroglioma are infiltrative tumors, the Mac Donald's response criteria, usually used for solid and contrast-enhanced tumors, seem not to be adapted. To precise more relevant radiological criteria, the radiological response of oligodendroglioma to PCV chemotherapy was evaluated on T2 weighted-MRI sequences only. METHODS 25 patients(More)
Twenty-three cases of an arterial disease that affects competition cyclists are reported. Patients complained of intermittent acute claudication appearing on one lower limb only at the time of a maximal strain while cycling. Doppler hemodynamic investigation on an ergometric bicycle revealed a collapse of the ankle systolic pressure. Arteriography showed a(More)
We report a prospective quantitative image analysis study of C cells in 57 normal autopsy thyroid glands, serially sectioned and wholly embedded in paraffin; all slides were immunohistochemically stained for calcitonin. Computerized quantitative image analysis was performed on 47 cases to measure C cell surface area and parenchymatous surface area after(More)
