To find out the gross and microscopic differentiating features between nipple discharges (ND) due to various breast lesions, smears of 602 ND samples from 484 cases were reviewed by one of the investigators (D.K.D.). The reviewed cytodiagnoses were as follows: benign nipple discharge (59.1%), inflammatory ND (6.5%), ?papillary lesions (2.5%), papillary(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare ThinPrep (TP) Papanicolaou smears (Cytyc Corp., Box-borough, Massachusetts, U.S.A.) with matching conventional Papanicolaou (CP) smears for specimen adequacy, cytologic quality, diagnostic accuracy and screening time. STUDY DESIGN In this prospective study of 1,024 women a split-sample, matched-pair design in favor of CP slides based(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the nature and origin of "blue blobs" (Bbs) in atrophic Pap smears in postmenopausal women and to study their clinical significance. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study of 412 atrophic Pap smears from postmenopausal women was done to detect the presence of Bbs. The smears from 24 cases showing Bbs were further studied to evaluate(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the possibility of replacing histologic biopsy of azoospermic testes by fine needle aspiration (FNA) for diagnostic and management purposes. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-seven patients were examined under general anesthesia, and 53 testes were biopsied by FNA. Fifty-four testes were biopsied for histologic examination. Histology and cytology(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the cytocellularity and histocellularity of lobular carcinoma (LC) and the relationship to high false negative results of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). STUDY DESIGN In this retrospective study, cellularity was studied in 60 cases of classic LC, LC variants and lobular carcinoma in situ, comparing cytologic smears to their(More)
This paper reviews different techniques used in the literature to analyze distortion in analog integrated circuits. It concentrates on analytical techniques rather than on numerical techniques. Techniques such as Volterra series, harmonic injection method, and modeling of circuit non-linearities, are discussed with emphasis on the last two techniques. The(More)
BACKGROUND Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) is a useful tool in the diagnosis of bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic pulmonary infections. There have been rare reports of parasitic infestations in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. This is the first case report on detecting a Schistosoma ova in BAL fluid. CASE A 40-year-old, Egyptian male presented with a fever(More)
There are several subtypes of lobular carcinoma (LC), and their cytomorphologic features differ from classic lobular carcinoma (CLC). The finer details of the differences between CLC and variant lobular carcinoma (VLC) have not been adequately studied. A comparative study of 54 cases of CLC and VLC was done in order to verify any statistically significant(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate maternal and perinatal outcomes when pregnant women with visceral leishmaniasis (VL, also known as kala-azar) are treated with the antimonial sodium stibogluconate. METHOD Forty-two pregnant women with VL were treated with sodium stibogluconate at Gadarif Hospital, Gadarif, Sudan, and mother and child were followed up for 1 year.(More)
