BACKGROUND Local intradermal injection of botulinum toxin Type A has become a recognized treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis. This study has investigated the efficacy of this method of treatment in terms of symptom-free interval between treatments and patients' satisfaction. We also investigated the reliance on patients' subjective assessment of the(More)
The biological behaviour of the polyp depends entirely on its histological subtype. Adenomas are the classic precursors to carcinoma. Polyp biopsy can differentiate neoplastic (adenoma and carcinoma) from non-neoplastic polyps (hyperplastic, inflammatory, hamartomatous). Due to potential sampling error, biopsy does not always differentiate between adenoma(More)
Breast cancer specific mortality results from tumour cell dissemination and metastatic colonisation. Identification of the cells and processes responsible for metastasis will enable better prevention and control of metastatic disease, thus reducing relapse and mortality. To better understand these processes, we prospectively collected 307 patient-derived(More)
INTRODUCTION Axillary ultrasound (AUS) with fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy of abnormal lymph nodes is important for pre-operative staging and planning the surgical management of the axilla. Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) metastases are thought to be difficult to detect because the cells are small and on cytology resemble lymphocytes. To investigate(More)
Metastasis to the breast from colorectal carcinoma is rare, only a few cases have been reported in the literature, and no cases have been reported in a young, 28-year-old patient. This report confirms the occurrence of the disease in a younger age group. The patient was referred to the Breast Clinic with a history of a gradually increasing lump in her right(More)
TPS117 Background: The neoadjuvant IMPACT trial suggested Ki67 levels after 2 weeks endocrine therapy predicts long-term outcome. Major changes in gene expression have also been seen in ER+ breast cancer after aromatase inhibitor (AI) treatment. POETIC evaluates whether changes in Ki67 level after 2 weeks treatment predicts for relapse-free survival (RFS)(More)
