We report a rare case of phaeohyphomycotic cyst in an immunocompetent patient caused by Exophiala oligosperma. This fungus is earlier known to cause infections in the immunocompromised. Identification of black fungi at species level is more challenging by conventional methods, and hence final identification of the fungi was based on sequencing of rDNA. The(More)
BACKGROUND Monitoring blood utilization helps in effective management of blood stock to meet present and future demands in a hospital. Hence, we analyzed the age, gender and frequency distribution of each blood product used in different diseases conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS We included all blood products utilized from January 2008 to December 2012 in(More)
We report a case of an uncommon adverse effect of insulin injection resulting in hard subcutaneous swelling in the lower abdomen of a 47-year-oldfemale with type 1 diabetes. Extensive dystrophic calcification and fat necrosis was revealed on histopathological examination.
We herewith present a rare and interesting case of gastric signet ring cell lymphoma (SRCL) in a 40-year-old retroviral positive lady. SRCL is a rare morphological variant of nodal lymphomas.Biopsy from the suspected lesion in the stomach showed diffuse sheets of cells with a large central vacuole displacing the nucleus to the periphery of the cell,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to analyze the clinicopathological and immunohistochemical features of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) cases occurring in Indian patients and also study the utility of the crush smear preparation in intraoperative diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS The immune status, clinical, radiological details,(More)
AIMS 1) To evaluate the estrogen receptor(ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and Her-2 /neu expression in invasive breast carcinomas by immunohistochemistry and 2) to compare the pattern of expression with clinico-pathological parameters like patient's age, tumor size, mitotic index, histological type and grade and lymph node metastasis. METHODS This is a(More)
BACKGROUND The MIB-1 labeling index (LI) has proved to be useful in assigning grading and prognosis to astrocytomas. The purpose of our study was to analyze the utility of MIB-1 LI in differentiating astrocytomas of varying grades and the possible relationships of MIB-1 LI with clinical parameters like age and sex. We also wanted to study the prognostic(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyze the significance of p53, bcl-2 and EGFR expression in the grading and biological behavior of astrocytic tumors, especially in the Indian population. A total of 117 cases of astrocytomas graded using the WHO grading system published in 2007 were immunolabeled using p53, EGFR and bcl-2 monoclonal antibodies and(More)
