BACKGROUND Several entities or variants within focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) have been described, but their changes with time and interrelationships are undetermined. METHODS Changes with time were studied in two series of segmental sclerosing lesions in the nephrotic syndrome, one of 22 specimens from ten patients in a trial, the other of 176(More)
Cystic tumors of the pancreas are rare neoplasms. They are more frequently identified given the improvements in imaging techniques. Serous cystadenomas are the most common among cystic neoplasms of the pancreas. In this case report we present a patient who was incidentally found to have a cystic mass in the pancreas during an abdominal imaging done for(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for preoperative staging of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) using the 1997 TNM (tumor, node, metastasis) classification. MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of MDCT in 57 consecutive patients with RCC performed for tumor staging before radical (n = 51)(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and histopathological characteristics of hepatic granulomas. All records of liver biopsies/resections evaluated in our pathology department between 2002 and 2009 were retrospectively reviewed. Specimens with hepatic granulomas were reexamined by a designated pathologist. Type and localization of(More)
Hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia (HAAA), first described by Lorenz and Quaiser in 1955 [1], is a rare phenomenon which usually affects adolescents and young men [2] and is more common in the East than in the West [3– 5]. It represents a minor proportion of all aplastic anemia cases [6] and may occur in 28% of young adults after liver transplantation for(More)
Infective endocarditis (IE) is rarely seen in pregnancy and puerperal period, and generally occurs in patients with preexisting heart disease or intravenous drug abuse. In this report, we describe a case of a 27-year-old patient with missed diagnosis of rheumatic heart disease and a moderate size patent ductus arteriosus, in whom multisite culture-negative(More)
Mallory-Denk Bodies (MDB) are important as investigators, suggesting MDB as an indicator of the histologic severity of chronic hepatitis, causes of which include hepatitis C, primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Matteoni et al scored MDB in patients with NAFLD as none, rare and many, and reported that MDB plays a(More)
Hepatoportal sclerosis (HPS) is a clinicopathologic condition that is clinically characterized by portal hypertension (varices and portosystemic collateral vessels), splenomegaly and pancytopenia, in the absence of cirrhosis. Although the etiology is obscure, a number of theories such as immunologic and vascular endothelial cellular abnormalities have been(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Despite all the knowledge about gastric cancer, there is no prognostic biomarker which could be useful for early detection. Dickkopf-1 (DKK-1), a secreted protein, is known as a negative regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway. DKK-1 is reported to be over expressed in many malignant tissues. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the(More)
into GIP, which caused repeated cecocolonic intussusception. Th e clinical signifi cance of the proximal involvement, especially in the area of appendiceal orifi ce, has been a matter of debate in patients with UC. In our earlier analysis, we showed that the infl ammation of the proximal colon of normal appearance was more severe in patients with(More)
