The neural pathways subserving the sensation of temperature are virtually unknown. However, recent findings in the monkey suggest that the sensation of cold may be mediated by an ascending pathway relaying in the posterior part of the thalamic ventromedial nucleus (VMpo). To test this hypothesis we examined the responses of neurons to thermal stimulation of(More)
BACKGROUND Massive localised lymphoedema (MLL) is a rare, relatively recently described pseudosarcoma most often occurring in morbidly obese patients. AIM To perform a retrospective review of all cases diagnosed as MLL. METHODS AND RESULTS Clinical information was obtained. 22 morbidly obese adults (mean patient weight 186 kg) presented with unilateral,(More)
Several studies have now examined the cDNA expression profiles of healthy myometrium, leiomyomas (LM), and leiomyosarcomas (LMS). This has produced a list of candidate genes that might be useful tools for distinguishing these entities from each other. The potential candidates identified from this body of research include insulinlike growth factor 1,(More)
BACKGROUND Occupational asthma (OA) refers to asthma caused by workplace-specific substances. A longer duration of symptoms while continuing to be exposed has been associated with a worse prognosis. Evidence suggests a significant period of time exists between symptom onset and diagnosis of OA, the reasons for which have not been investigated. The purpose(More)
NEURONAL FIRING RATES IN MOTOR TaALAMUS OF PARKINSON'S DISEASE (PD) AND ESSENTIAL TREMOR (ET) PATIENTS Gregory F. Molnar, Master's of Science Degree, 2000 Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto Current models predict that the motor symptoms of PD result from increased inhibitory outflow fiom the basal ganglia to thalamic neurons in ventralis(More)
Ewing's sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor family of tumors is part of a rare group of malignant neoplasms with small round-cell morphology. We describe a 24-year-old woman who presented with non-specific back pain. A chest radiograph and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an extraosseous, dumbbell-shaped mass of the posterior mediastinum with(More)
We report a case of an undifferentiated pancreatic carcinoma with osteoclast-like giant cells with focal osteochondroid differentiation in a 66-year-old man, who presented with painless jaundice, pruritus, and weight loss. Imaging studies revealed an inhomogeneous mass in the head of the pancreas. A pylorus preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed.(More)
Serial fMRI was performed in a patient who underwent transfer of the left great toe to the hand following amputation of the right thumb. Motor activation within the primary sensorimotor cortex (SMC) of both hemispheres was quantified over 2 years, showing a transient increase in contralateral but not ipsilateral primary SMC. The temporal pattern of motor(More)
OBJECTIVE We discuss the treatment and pathology of simultaneous bilateral metastatic palatine tonsil carcinoma. The current literature of the diagnosis and management of unknown primary oropharyngeal neoplasms is reviewed including the role of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. STUDY DESIGN Squamous cell carcinoma (SCCA) of the palatine tonsil(More)
We present a case of spontaneous regression of pulmonary metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with sarcomatoid differentiation, prior to intervention. The patient presented with conventional type RCC with Furhman Grade 4/4 and sarcomatoid differentiation, complicated by pulmonary metastases. Palliative systemic therapy was planned, but prior to the(More)
