Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-3 (TIMP-3) is known to inhibit matrix metalloproteinases, aggrecanases, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha-converting enzyme (TACE, ADAM17). These metalloproteases participate in different aspects of joint destruction in inflammatory arthritis. To determine the relative importance of this inhibitor in joint(More)
BACKGROUND Basaloid epidermal proliferations (BEP), morphologically resembling basal cell carcinoma (BCC), have been described overlying dermatofibromas. Distinguishing the two is important because of non-aggressiveness of BEP and local aggressiveness of BCC. The aim of this study is to determine whether CK20 antibody staining for Merkel cells can be used(More)
We describe a novel t(16;18)(p13;q21.3) in a male patient with follicular lymphoma. This unique chromosomal rearrangement has never been described in patients with follicular lymphoma. The breakpoint of 16p13 has several hematopoietic neoplasm-related genes such as MHC2TA, a master regulatory gene for HLA-D, and BCMA, tumor necrosis factor receptor(More)
Lipofuscin, known as the "wear and tear" pigment, is seen in cells undergoing regressive changes, the seminal vesicles and the ejaculatory ducts. It is also present in prostatic adenocarcinoma. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prognostic significance of lipofuscin in prostatic adenocarcinoma. Lipofuscin was evaluated in 736(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of tactile corpuscle-like structures in Schwannomas, Neurofibromas and Neuroid Intradermal Melanocytic Nevi is well-documented. We report a case describing the presence of such structures in the lamina propria of grossly normal gastric mucosa. CASE PRESENTATION A 30 year-old male underwent esophagogastrectomy for carcinoma.(More)
Carcinoma of the prostate accounts for fewer than 1% of all skin metastases. Cutaneous metastases from prostate carcinoma most often involve the penis, the anterior aspect of the thighs, the suprapubic area, and the perineum, but they also have been reported in the scalp, the chest, the back, and even the face. We report an unusual case of metastatic(More)
