Inflammatory pseudotumor of the kidney is a very rare lesion. We report a patient who had a renal mass raising the suspicion of a malignant neoplasm and the pathologic examination revealed an inflammatory pseudotumor. Despite its rarity, inflammatory pseudotumor of kidney should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of a solitary renal mass.
AIM To investigate the relationship between encapsulating peritonitis and familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). METHODS The patient had a history of type 2 diabetes and laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed one year ago for cholelithiasis. Eleven months after the operation she developed massive ascites. Biochemical evaluation revealed hyperglycemia,… (More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) has been considered to be an etiological agent for anogenital cancers, such as cervical cancer and possibly a subset of cancers of the aerodigestive tract. The aim of the study was to evaluate the presence of human papillomavirus DNA in colorectal carcinomas and adenomas. Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded archival tissue… (More)
AIM Endometrial cancer (EC), which is the most common gynecologic cancer, develops as a result of disruption of the delicate balance between cell proliferation and cell loss, or apoptosis through activation of oncogenesis, or loss of tumor suppressor genes. Among the biochemical factors proposed to give a more detailed characterization of EC biology,… (More)
BACKGROUND Kaposi's sarcoma is a multicentric, low-grade, vascular neoplasia. Human herpesvirus 8 is associated with all epidemiological forms of KS and has been shown in vitro to induce the tyrosine receptor kinase c-Kit in infected cells. AIM To investigate the expression of c-Kit in cases of classic KS and to clarify its association with… (More)
Ossifying fibroma localized in the nasopharynx of a 35-year-old man with histopathologic and radiologic findings has been reported. Because of its rarity, the subject has been presented and discussed.
It has been estimated that almost 10% of the worldwide cancer burden is linked to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Although the association between HPV and bladder carcinoma has been extensively investigated, data on the role of HPV in bladder carcinogenesis are controversial. The aim of the study was to assess the possible role of human papillomavirus… (More)
BACKGROUND Endometrial carcinoma (EC) is the most common malignancy of the female genital tract. Gene alterations and overexpression of various oncogenes are important in tumor development. The human HER 2 neu (c-erbB-2) gene product is a transmembrane receptor with an intracellular tyrosine kinase that plays an important role in coordinating the… (More)
M contagiosum virus (MCV) infection occurring in an epidermal cyst (EC) is a very rare condition and only a few cases were reported in children and adults.1-3 However, MCV in multiple small epidermal cysts (ECs) was not previously described. Therefore, this unusual case of molluscum infestation occurring in multiple ECs was presented. A 20-year-old female… (More)
Several studies have suggested a possible role of human papillomavirus (HPV) in the pathogenesis of endometrial carcinoma. The aim of the study was to investigate the presence of HPV DNA in endometrium cancers and nonneoplastic endometrium. Sixty endometrial adenocarcinomas with and without squamous differentiation and the nonneoplastic endometrium tissue… (More)
