The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of frozen section diagnosis in patients who were subjected to the exploratory laparotomy for pelvic mass. Overall, 207 patients were included in this study and the mean age of the patients was 50.9 +/- 14.9 years (range, 18-84 years). Of these patients, 98 (47%) had benign, 16 (8%) had borderline, and(More)
Intratumoral angiogenesis has become an important issue after the identification of antiangiogenic therapeutics. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prognostic value of CD105 in patients with ovarian cancer and also to compare with CD31. Fifty-eight patients were included to this study. All the paraffin blocks were reviewed, and angiogenesis(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to detect the prognostic value of CD105 (endoglin) and also to compare with CD34 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in patients with endometrial adenocancer. METHODS Ninety patients with endometrial carcinoma, who were treated at Gazi University Hospital, were included. Staging was performed according to(More)
Castleman's disease is a rare B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology. In this report we describe a 54-year-old woman with a 10-year history of asymptomatic bilateral, multiple cervical lymph node enlargements. She was not evaluated by lymph node biopsy during this period. She had been well until four months previously. The patient presented(More)
The tumor suppressor gene p53 is known to be involved in the negative regulation of cell growth. Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), which is a nuclear protein and a component of the DNA replication process, is also involved in growth regulation. Both have been studied as progression markers in various tumors including hepatocellular carcinoma. In(More)
INTRODUCTION Penile metastases are rare and represent the advanced stage of the primary tumor. The patients usually have a history of a previously diagnosed malignancy and when metastasis to penis occurs, the most common findings would be priapism, pain, and difficulty in voiding. AIM We aimed to present a patient who had erectile dysfunction as the(More)
Chordoma is a primary sacral neoplasm of ectodermal origin and makes up %1- 4 of all primary bone tumors. It is usually present on the midline cerebrospinal axis and the most common locations are the spheno-clival region and the sacrum. The treatment of primary sacral tumors represents a challenge because of a large tumor mass at presentation and a(More)
The cell wall mannan components of Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae produced hyperthermic responses when injected intracerebroventricularly at doses of 10 microg in rats. Indomethacin treatment (5 mg/kg subcutaneously) completely abolished these responses. Serum interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha and interleukin-1beta levels showed(More)
