Nongestational choriocarcinoma differentiation is extremely rare in breast neoplasms. It is characterized by tumor cells similar to chorionic trophoblastic cells, which react with human placental lactogen and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). A 56-year-old woman presented with a palpable right breast mass without past history of trophoblastic tumors. An(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Although interstitial cells of Cajal has been suggested as origin of this tumor, the cytological and ultrastructural features of GISTs are heterogeneous and unclear. A total 10 cases of normal gastrointestinal tissue (control), 13 GISTs of the(More)
Most of malignant tumors arising in ovarian and extraovarian endometriosis are carcinomas. Mixed mullerian tumor and endometrial stromal sarcoma arising in intestinal endometriosis are rarely described, but its clinicopathologic features have not been well characterized. Here we report a case of endometrial stromal sarcoma of the sigmoid colon arising in(More)
BACKGROUND Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is related with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) and poor cardiovascular outcome. Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness, measured by echocardiography, is increased in subjects with MetS. However, the association of EAT with LV diastolic function has not been evaluated in subjects with MetS. METHODS In(More)
Sclerosing meningioma is a distinct histologic subtype of meningioma, however, it is often confused with other tumors, especially malignant tumors. To widen our knowledge of sclerosing meningioma and to help neurosurgeons and neuropathologists diagnose this clinically and pathologically unfamiliar disease entity, we reviewed four such cases, which were(More)
Epithelioid trophoblastic tumor is an unusual type of trophoblastic tumor. Here we report on the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features of three cases of epithelioid trophoblastic tumor. All three patients were of reproductive age and presented with vaginal bleeding and mild elevation of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). All patients underwent(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The cardioankle vascular index (CAVI), a new measure of arterial stiffness, was recently developed and is independent of blood pressure. We investigated whether NAFLD is associated with arterial stiffness as measured using the CAVI in an apparently healthy(More)
Penicillin is the first b-lactam antibiotic and a member of the most widely used group of antibiotics. It has effects against many kinds of microorganisms. Although many types of bacteria are now resistant, penicillin is still one of the most useful antibiotics. Many kinds of adverse reactions to penicillin, such as interstitial nephri-tis, are well known;(More)
BACKGROUND Fast eating or overeating can induce gastrointestinal diseases such as gastritis. However, the association between gastritis and speed of eating is unclear. The aim of this study was to determine whether eating speed is associated with increased risk of endoscopic erosive gastritis (EEG). METHODS We carried out a cross-sectional study involving(More)
BACKGROUND It is not clear how severe metabolic syndrome (MS) affects the development of coronary atherosclerosis. METHODS This was an observational, retrospective cohort study with Koreans who received health check-ups voluntarily. A total of 2426 subjects had baseline and follow-up coronary artery calcium score (CACS) data. Among them, 1079 had coronary(More)
