Primary lung cancer frequently metastasizes to distant organs. The pancreas is a relatively infrequent site of metastasis. As a result, extrahepatic bile duct obstruction (EHBDO) resulting from pancreatic metastasis from lung cancer is extremely rare and occurs mostly with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). We report an unusual case in which a patient presented(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and role of CD117 (c-KIT) overexpression as a predictive/prognostic marker in extensive-stage small-cell lung carcinoma (ESSCLC). We performed a retrospective study on subjects with a biopsy-proven diagnosis of ESSCLC. PATIENTS AND METHODS A chart review for demographic and clinical data was(More)
PURPOSE To determine the prevalence and evaluate the possible prognostic value of the molecular targets in malignant melanoma, we studied the overexpression of HER-2/neu, c-Kit, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in this patient population. MATERIALS AND METHODS Overexpression of HER-2/neu, c-Kit, and VEGF was evaluated using(More)
The examination of Prussian-blue-stained bone marrow aspirates for the presence or absence of histiocytic iron granules has been considered the gold standard in evaluating iron-depeleted states. We performed this study to evaluate the predictive accuracy of absent stainable bone marrow iron for iron deficiency anemia (IDA). A retrospective study was(More)
A 75-year-old white male presented with a one-month history of pain in the left shoulder. Early laboratory data revealed hypercalcemia. Extensive skeletal survey was remarkable for multiple lytic lesions in skull, right scapula, right humerus and left iliac crest. A bone marrow biopsy of the left iliac crest did not show evidence of plasma cell dyscrasia. A(More)
BACKGROUND Molecular changes associated with the transition of melanoma cells from radial to vertical growth phase are not defined. To evaluate the role of VEGF in melanogenesis and determine its possible diagnostic and prognostic implications, we analyzed overexpression of VEGF in 202 cases of melanoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Overexpression of VEGF was(More)
