BACKGROUND The clinicopathological and immunohistochemical data of solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) from India are limited. Our objectives were to evaluate various histopathological parameters and immunomarkers to elucidate the best possible immunomarker combination that can accurately diagnose these tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Clinicopathological(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Demonstration of lepra bacilli is essential for definite or unequivocal diagnosis of pure neuritic leprosy (PNL) on nerve biopsy. However, nerves always do not show bacilli owing to the changes of previous therapy or due to low bacillary load in tuberculoid forms. In absence of granuloma or lepra bacilli, other morphologic changes in(More)
Hepatosplenic T cell lymphoma is a rare form of extra nodal and systemic neoplasm derived from cytotoxic T cells and represents less than 1 % of all non Hodgkins lymphoma. Here we present a case of hepatosplenic T cell lymphoma in a 30 year old male who presented with icterus, pancytopenia and hepatosplenomegaly, highlighting the diagnostic conundrum and(More)
Florid vascular proliferation in teratoma is rare morphological presentation. We present a case of mediastinal germ cell tumor masquerading as a vascular neoplasm in a 14-year-old male who presented with right hemithoracic mass. The initial histopathology of resected mass was suggestive of vascular neoplasm. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of right(More)
Hydatidosis is a zoonotic infection caused by Echinococcus granulosus. The most common sites of involvement are liver and lungs. Isolated musculoskeletal hydatidosis in absence of visceral involvement is rare and it mimics bone or soft tissue neoplasm. Fine needle aspiration cytology and cell block aids in diagnosis in such unusual location. Here we present(More)
BACKGROUND Membranous nephropathy (MN) is the most common cause of nephropathy in adults. The diagnosis is based on characteristic light microscopic, electron microscope and immunofluorescence (IF) findings. In early MN, the light microscopic findings may be difficult to differentiate from minimal chain disease. In the absence of fresh frozen tissue for IF,(More)
BACKGROUND The gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEPNET) have a characteristic histologic appearance unrelated of the exact site of origin. However the behavior of these tumors are different in each of these sites. In this article we study the clinicopathological features of GEPNET. These tumors were classified and graded according to WHO 2010(More)
BACKGROUND Parachordomas are rare soft tissue tumors commonly occurring in limbs, chest, Abdomen, and back. The World Health Organization (WHO) classification includes parachordomas in the same group as mixed tumors and myoepitheliomas. Exact histogenesis of this tumor is unclear. CASE DESCRIPTION A 52-year-old male presented with headache and blurring of(More)
