We report immunomorphologic observations on a pleomorphic hyalinizing angiectatic tumor of soft parts (PHAT), a rare tumor recently described by Smith, Fisher, and Weiss. A 2 cm skin-covered, grossly lobulated, firm, yellow-tan, focally hemorrhagic tumor was excised from the dorsum of a 59-year-old woman's right foot. It infiltrated dermis and subcutis and(More)

One of the patients received pentamidine, but parasitemia persisted after therapy. No deaths have been recorded for persons who had had splenectomies and were later(More)
BACKGROUND One of the most common structural balanced chromosome rearrangements is pericentric inversion of chromosome 9; inv(9)(p11q12), which is consider to be the variant of normal karyotype and has been found in normal population.

Seventy-nine patients with clinical stages IA, or II2A of Hodgkin's disease were treated from January 1977 to April 1980 by a multiple therapy schedule, H 7701. Three courses of MOPP chemotherapy were first given to all patients. They were then randomly allocated to two groups: group 7701 S (38 patients) was treated by mantle irradiation, excluding the(More)
From April 1972 to December 1976, 334 patients with Hodgkin's disease, CS IA-IIIB, were prospectively treated with combined chemotherapy and radiation. The 166 stages IA and II2A were clinically staged only; the 168 other patients were randomized to clinical or pathological staging. All patients received 3 or 6 cycles of MOPP followed by Mantle field with(More)
An instance of fibrous hamartoma of infancy (FHI) in the perianal region of an 8-mo-old infant, a hitherto unreported location, is described. The majority of the reported cases occur in the torso and upper extremities. The differential diagnostic features which aid differentiating FHI from other conditions is discussed. Although the tumor may recur after(More)
