In the last decade, microRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as biomarkers for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, therapy and prediction of treatment response and have earned a promising role in prostate cancer (PCa) management. A plethora of studies has been conducted on miRNA expression in PCa compared to non-neoplastic prostatic tissue, in PCa of different histologic(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the utility of gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) for the detection of anti-HIV antibodies in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) with respect to their CD4 counts. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was carried out between 37 seropositive (37GCF, 10 saliva) and 37(More)
The objective of our study was to evaluate and standardise the method of spot (random) urine protein creatinine ratio (UP/C) for estimation of proteinuria. The study contained 241 study participants in a tertiary care hospital inclusive of 208 cases and 33 normal volunteers. The 24 hour urine protein estimation was done on 24 hour urine samples and UP/C(More)
Prostate biopsies with foci of atypical glands suspicious, but not diagnostic of carcinoma (ATYP) are associated with an increased risk of cancer diagnosis in subsequent biopsies. The significance of similar findings in transurethral resections of the prostate (TURP) is unknown. A total of 1338 specimens without a diagnosis of cancer were retrieved from our(More)
Conflict of Interests: The authors state that there are no financial and personal conflicts of interest that could have inappropriately influenced their work. Abstract Purpose: The Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a rare congenital disorder that occurs sporadically and features lesions of both skin and nervous system. We report a case of 7 year-old girl with(More)
Ovary is one of the extrapancreatic sites of origin of solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN). Only 9 cases of primary ovarian SPN, 1 with CTNNB1 mutation similar to pancreatic SPN, have been reported in the English literature. We describe the second case of ovarian SPN with confirmed CTNNB1 mutation. A 49-year-old postmenopausal woman presented with a 4.5 cm(More)
Cryptococcosis is a well recognized infection in immunocompromised patients. Cryptococcal infection primarily involves the lung and is hematogeneously spread to other organs. Sometimes it might affect the genitourinary tract. The prostate gland is a rare site of primary infection due to cryptococcus neoformans. We report a case of granulomatous inflammation(More)
Renal leiomyoma is an exceptionally rare benign mesenchymal tumor of the kidney predominantly arising in proximity of the renal capsule or pelvis. Its rarity and nonspecific clinical and imaging features may lead to radical or partial nephrectomy on the basis of preoperative suspicion of renal cell carcinoma. The diagnosis of renal leiomyoma is challenging(More)
