Intraductal tubulopapillary neoplasms (ITPNs) of the pancreas are rare. The purpose of this study was to collate and analyze published data on ITPNs of the pancreas to determine the clinicopathological features of the tumors and the surgical outcomes of patients. We searched MEDLINE and Igakuchuo-Zasshi for the period of 1980 to 2015 for case reports on(More)
INTRODUCTION Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) frequently occurs in patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. Catheter ablation of the accessory pathway eliminates PAF in some patients, but PAF frequently recurs in other patients. The present study was designed to determine prospectively whether P wave signal-averaged electrocardiography(More)
Recently, autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) has been reported with a variety of extra-pancreatic manifestations and infiltration of IgG4-positive cells into the affected organs. We report herein two cases with prostatitis. One was seen in a patient with typical AIP, and the other was observed without any clinical manifestation of AIP. Serum IgG4 levels were(More)
PURPOSE It is known that a common p53 polymorphism, encodingeither proline (Pro) or arginine (Arg) at residue 72, produces marked change in the structure of p53. Furthermore, the Arg72-containing allele is preferentially mutated and retained in various human tumors, suggesting that polymorphic residue within p53 modifies mutant behavior. We studied to(More)
Activating mutations of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3), found in autosomal dominant human skeletal dysplasia, were reported to be involved in tumorigenesis and correlate with low-grade and superficial lesions of urothelial carcinoma. FGFR3 protein expression was immunohistochemically investigated in 126 cases of urothelial carcinoma of the(More)
Splenic hamartoma is a rare benign tumor, and although minimally invasive surgery may be suitable for this condition, there have only been 2 previous reports of laparoscopic surgery. Here we report the third case of splenic hamartoma managed by laparoscopic splenectomy. A 37-year-old male was incidentally diagnosed by abdominal ultrasonography with a(More)
MicroRNAs contribute to the pathogenesis of certain diseases and may serve as biomarkers. We analyzed glomerular microRNA expression in B6.MRLc1, which serve as a mouse model of autoimmune glomerulonephritis. We found that miR-26a was the most abundantly expressed microRNA in the glomerulus of normal C57BL/6 and that its glomerular expression in B6.MRLc1(More)
Post-transcriptional modification of p53 by phosphorylation has been proposed as an important mechanism of p53 stabilization and functional regulation. However, little is known about the phosphorylation state of mutant p53 protein overexpressed in human tumors. We evaluated immunohistochemically the p53 phosphorylation state of Ser392 and Ser15 sites in 44(More)
A 45-year-old woman was first seen by us 2 years after becoming aware of a slightly painful subcutaneous mass in her left vulva. The mass was 7.5 × 3.0 cm in size, well circumscribed, mobile, and rubbery. It was at first clinically considered to be a benign tumor. Microscopically, the resected mass was composed of spindle or polygonal tumor cells which were(More)
Some clinicians have argued that combining pancreatic and portomesenteric venous resection could improve the rates of long-term survival. However, whether resection of the portosplenomesenteric vein could provide an acceptable survival benefit to patients with pancreatic cancer involving the portosplenomesenteric system remains controversial. The purpose of(More)
