An analysis of cases presenting as mass in nasal cavity (NC), paranasal sinuses (PNS), and nasopharynx (NP) was done over a period of 7 years in Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Aligarh. A provisional diagnosis was made after clinical assessment and radiological investigations, but final diagnosis was made after histopathological examination. The incidence(More)
To analyze the significance of comparative evaluation of cytohistomorphological grading of infiltrating ductal carcinoma with specific reference to lymphnode metastasis status and apoptotic index. 50 patients who underwent FNAC and mastectomy for infiltrating ductal carcinoma were included in the study. Concordance between cytological and histological(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluation of cytologic features is indispensable in the preoperative diagnosis and grading of infiltrating ductal breast carcinoma (CA) in fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) material and this method can also provide additional information regarding intrinsic features of the tumor as well as its prognosis. AIM This study has been done to(More)
Mediastinal teratomas are usually asymptomatic tumors, located most commonly in the anterior mediastinum. Very rarely, such tumors may rupture into the tracheobronchial tree, lung, pleura or pericardium. Computed Tomography (CT) is helpful in the diagnosis and differentiation of ruptured and unruptured tumors. We report a case of ruptured anterior(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and twenty patients with ovarian masses were studied. After detailed history and clinical examination, ultrasound (USG)-guided FNAC was performed in 92 clinical benign cases(More)
Myopericytoma is a rare benign tumor with perivascular myoid differentiation. It shares histomorpholoic features with the so-called hemangiopericytoma, myofibroma and glomus tumor. We hereby report the case of a 14-year-old boy who presented with a slowly growing, painless, firm mass on upper lip, diagnosed as myopericytoma on the basis of histopathology(More)
AgNOR staining was employed on FNAC and histopathological sections obtained from patients with soft tissue tumours. The study comprised of 20 normal appearing soft tissues, 74 benign and 36 malignant soft tissue tumours. The slides were stained with AgNOR in order to differentiate between benign and malignant soft tissue tumours. The mean AgNOR count in(More)
