In this report, retrospectively, we analyzed fifteen histo-pathologically characterized FFPE based Wilms' Tumor (WT) samples following an integrative approach of copy number (CN) and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) imbalances. The isolated-DNA was tested on CN and somatic-mutation related Molecular-Inversion-Probe based-Oncoscan Array™ and was analyzed through(More)
Angiogenesis plays an important role in cervical cancer progression. Currently among several factors known to promote angiogenesis, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is most important. To evaluate the effect of treatment on VEGF levels and their correlation with other predictive factors, pre-and post treatment levels of VEGF were estimated in(More)

Coexistence of tuberculosis (TB) and palatal malignancy is a rare phenomenon and it has never been reported. Here, we present a case of hard palate carcinoma with TB in a 60-year-old male patient who was successfully managed by three pronged approaches by combining antitubercular therapy with chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Herein, we present a case of tubal choriocarcinoma which was diagnosed initially as chronic ectopic pregnancy. During laparotomy we noticed a haemorrhagic friable mass in the left flank, adherent to the bowel. Left-sided salpingoopherectomy was performed. Serum β HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) levels performed in the postoperative period were elevated.(More)
Neurothekeoma is a rare, benign, and asymptomatic tumor of the skin. Most tumors are located on the head, shoulders, and arms. It is classified as a nerve sheath tumor and epidemiologically occurs in young adults. It is rare to find this tumor in children.
