A case of Paget's disease of the anal mucosa with an underlying carcinoma demonstrating mucoepidermoid features is reported. The histopathologic characteristics of both extramammary Paget's disease and mucoepidermoid carcinoma are noted. Special histochemical staining procedures were consistent with the diagnosis. The actual histogenesis of extramammary(More)
In signet-ring cell carcinoma of the breast, which was recognized in 1976 as a distinct clinicopathologic variant of lobular carcinoma, more than 20% of the malignant cells appear as signet rings formed by mucin-positive intracytoplasmic vacuoles. Several recent studies have demonstrated that the neoplasm behaves aggressively and is associated with a poor(More)
HLA antigen Class I (A, B, C) and II (DR) were determined in a small group of fibrositis (fibromyalgia) patients and normal controls. Sixty-seven percent of fibrositis patients had DR4 versus 30% of normal controls. There was also an increased relative risk (4.5). No statitical significance of other Class I and II antigens in fibrositis was found.
A 67 year old female was seen as an emergency some three days following a minor fall with spontaneous rupture of the left iliac vein. Emergency surgery consisted of repair of the venous rent, compartmentation of the vena cava, thrombectomy, and subsequently anticoagulation. Etiology of the rupture was considered to be the thrombosis in the proximal portion(More)
Metastasis of a maternal neoplasm to the products of conception is extremely rare. Of the 54 reported cases in the world literature, only 14 (25%) showed fetal metastasis. More than 50% of the reported cases were not examined grossly or had no visually apparent tumor deposits. Malignant melanoma is the most common malignant maternal neoplasm to metastasize(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the 24-h bronchodilator efficacy and safety of single-dose indacaterol in asthma. METHODS This was a five-period, double-blind, double-dummy, crossover study in patients with persistent asthma. On separate study days, patients inhaled a single dose of indacaterol (150, 300 or 600 microg) in the morning via a single-dose dry powder(More)
Analgesic nephropathy results from chronic abuse of non-narcotic analgesics, most frequently with the use of phenacetin and mixed analgesic preparations. Renal papillary necrosis and chronic interstitial nephritis with progressive scarring are characteristic of the histopathology of analgesic nephropathy. Typically, papillary necrosis in these patients is(More)
Review of all hepatitis B surface antigen-positive patients reported to the county health department over the past 3 years showed that 60% of patients had been diagnosed at our hospital, which serves an inner city, predominantly black, indigent population. Sera from 524 adult patients admitted to the hospital were prospectively collected and tested for(More)
