A case of recurrent esthesioneuroblastoma was diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration of a midcervical mass. The cytologic features that characterize this uncommon neoplasm include uniform, small, round-to-oval cells with coarsely granular chromatin, multiple small nucleoli, prominent nuclear membranes, and scant cytoplasm. Morphologically and(More)
BACKGROUND Anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α therapies have revolutionized the treatment of psoriasis; however, up to 50% of patients do not respond satisfactorily. Identification of pharmacogenetic markers of treatment response is an important stop in the development of individually tailored treatment. The objective of this study was to assess the(More)
Macrophages containing small ovoid intracytoplasmic yeast cells, surrounded by a slight "halo," were observed in Papanicolaou-stained smears of sputum submitted for cytologic examination from two patients with culture-confirmed pulmonary sporotrichosis. The cytologic findings are presented and discussed in relation to other pulmonary fungal infections and(More)
BACKGROUND Bleeding complications and blood product consumption have been a major concern during liver transplantation. Prevention of plasminogen activation and fibrinolysis by aprotinin administration has been shown to reduce perioperative bleeding during operations associated with high blood-product consumption.

The infected mesh, which had eroded into the vagina, was removed. Cultures of the infected mesh and abscesses grew common vaginal flora, including Gardnerella(More)
As filter-feeding planktivores, Atlantic menhaden (Brevoortia tyrannus) have the potential to positively impact water quality through the filtration and ingestion of phytoplankton and the assimilation of nutrients. To evaluate the impact of young-of-theyear (YOY) and age-1+ menhaden on Chesapeake Bay, a eutrophic estuary, age-specific rates of ingestion of(More)
