Tissues from two patients with disseminated histiocytosis X (Letterer-Siwe disease) in which histiocytosis X cells exhibited histologic and cytologic features of malignancy were evaluated by in situ hybridization with the use of biotinylated nucleic acid probes to c-myc and H-ras oncogenes. Enhanced expression of these oncogenes was observed in(More)
To determine the role of c-myc and H-ras in progressive, dysplastic Barrett's mucosa (BM), and the usefulness of these oncogenes as markers for dysplastic lesions at high risk for malignant transformation, sequential formaldehyde solution-fixed, paraffin-embedded biopsy specimens that were obtained from 12 patients with BM were evaluated by in situ(More)
Joint pain has been associated with fatty infiltration of the knee articulation. The purpose of this study is to report on the histopathological findings, especially fatty changes, that are seen in surgical specimens from the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) of patients that had persistent pain after non-surgical therapy. Forty plicated TMJ retrodiscal(More)
Twenty-three transurethral resected prostate specimens with histologic evidence of chronic abacterial prostatitis were evaluated by colorimetric in situ hybridization for evidence of Chlamydia trachomatis. Intracellular chlamydia bodies were detected in seven of 23 cases (30.4%). In five of seven positive cases, chlamydia inclusion bodies were present(More)
We report three patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma in whom fine-needle aspiration (FNA) showed neutrophils within tumor cells. All three patients presented with large neck masses; at excision, two proved to be tall cell variants of papillary cancer. Nodal metastasis, extrathyroidal extension, and vascular invasion were found in both cases. One(More)
