BACKGROUND Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) has been employed as a useful technique for the initial diagnosis of soft tissue tumors (STT) as well for the identification of recurrent and metastatic cases. AIM We conducted this study on soft tissue tumors to find the efficacy of FNAC and to finalize the histological diagnosis with immunostains. (More)
Pure squamous cell carcinoma of gallbladder is a rare tumor accounting for only 3% of the malignancies of gallbladder. A 35-year-old female presented with pain and lump in right hypochondrium. Ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed a thickened gallbladder filled with stones without any obvious growth and a large hepatic mass. Histologically, a(More)
It is rare to find osteoclastic giant cells (OGCs) as a stromal reaction in uterine adenocarcinoma of endometrium. Here, we report a case of a 60-year-old female diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of endometrium. Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy and removal of pelvic lymphnodes was performed. Histologically, the tumour showed(More)
To establish the role of fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) as a diagnostic tool for non-Hodgkins lymphoma in a resource challenged environment. This study was conducted on patients with lymphadenopathy, attending various clinics over a period of 18 months. FNAC of the enlarged lymph nodes was performed and biopsy, special stains and immunohistochemical(More)
Hematology and serum chemistry values were obtained from 28 male and 22 female stray dogs in Chittagong Metropolitan area, Bangladesh. The goal of the study was to establish reference value for hematology and serum chemistry for these semi wild animals in relation to age, sex, reproductive stage and body condition. No significant differences were found for(More)
Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare benign disorder of histiocytic proliferation that usually presents with bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy in children. We describe the case of a 50-year-old lady suffering from this disease who presented with generalized lymphadenopathy and a left sided chest wall lump. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) from all(More)
To study the anti-oxidant properties of neem (Azadirachta indica) in inducing apoptosis of cervical cancer cells and estimation of caspase activity and TNF-α and IFN-γ levels in monocytes of cervical cancer patients and controls. Monocytes were cultured from blood samples of 65 study cases and 30 controls for the estimation of caspase 3, 8 and 9 with(More)

Involvement of small bones of hand and feet leading to tuberculous dactylitis involvement is a rare presentation of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Even rarer is the association of tuberculous dactylitis with multifocal skeletal involvement, even in countries like ours, where tuberculosis is endemic. The authors report two cases, one of tuberculous dactylitis(More)
Bony metastasis is a frequent occurrence in malignancy. However, the clinical presentation and pathological findings may sometimes be more in favor of a primary bone lesion. In such cases, immunochemistry has a very important role to play in reaching a final diagnosis. We present the case of a 35 year male patient who was investigated for a lytic lesion in(More)
