The main objective of this study was to identify the clinical-pathological discrepancies in autopsies performed in the institution. We reviewed autopsies of clinical cases in 53 adults in the period between January 2005 and June 2009, carried out in the Pathology Service at the Hospital Privado de Córdoba, Argentina. Six autopsies were excluded due to(More)
Aggressive B-cell lymphomas incorporate a wide spectrum of lymphomas that pose challenges in diagnosis as well as treatment. We evaluated the clinicopathological features of 44 patients with aggressive B-cell lymphomas which were classified into 3 groups based on the World Health Organization 2008 classification as follows: including 30 cases of diffuse(More)
The use of expanded donors or kidneys with preexistent chronic damage remains controversial, but they offer the opportunity to expand the donor pool. We investigated the impact of these conditions as predictors of graft survival among a cohort of recipients with prolonged cold ischemia times and a high incidence of delayed graft function. We included 70(More)
Papillary carcinoma, diffuse sclerosing variant corresponds to 2% of all papillary thyroid carcinomas. It is usually diffuse and bilateral, affecting the entire gland. At the time of diagnosis, patients present lymph node and lung metastasis. It affects mainly young women. This case report describes a cardiac tamponade as the initial manifestation of an(More)
Clear cell renal carcinoma is the most frequent type of renal carcinoma. Recently, attention has been focused in the expression of angiogenic factors by these tumors, which would justify in part their capacity to grow, invade and disseminate, stating a worse evolution of those patients with an unfavorable angiogenic profile. 83 samples of nephrectomy with a(More)

Bone hydatid disease is a very rare entity, accounting for 0.5 to 4% of total cases. We report a case of a 58 year-old woman from La Rioja, Argentina, who consulted(More)
Diffuse plane xanthomatosis associated with haematologic disorder and solid tumor. Findings of an autopsy. Diffuse plane xanthomatosis is an uncommon subtype of non-Langerhans histiocytosis. We report a case of a 78 year-old woman with a history of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance and diffuse plane xanthomatosis since 1995. She consulted(More)
A 41 year-old woman consulted because of facial pain. A magnetic resonance imaging showed a mass in the right petrous apex. A biopsy revealed a diffuse proliferation of large atypical cells with plasmablastic appearance, positive for CD138, BCL6, CD56 and p53. The proliferation factor was 80%. Monoclonal kappa light chain expression was observed. Because(More)
Gastrointestinal metastases are rare. May occur years after initial diagnosis and its symptoms are nonspecific, delaying its correct diagnosis and aggravating its prognosis. The most common histological subtype is lobular breast carcinoma. We present a 75-year-old woman with history of left mastectomy six years ago by infiltrating lobular carcinoma. She was(More)
