Melanoma may be difficult to identify histologically and relatively high rates of misdiagnosis leads to many malpractice claims. Currently separation of melanomas from nevi is based primarily on light microscopic interpretation of hematoxylin and eosin stained sections with limited assistance from immunohistology. To increase the accuracy of discrimination(More)

UNLABELLED This study was undertaken to assess the relationship between the degree of 99mTc-MIBI uptake in breast lesions and the following histologic factors: neovascularity, desmoplastic reaction, cellular proliferation and mitochondrial density. METHODS Forty-two patients who previously underwent MIBI breast imaging (4 false-negative, 12(More)
Lymphocytic thrombophilic arteritis is an entity only recently defined in the literature. This term describes a distinctive histopathological combination of lymphocytic vascular inflammation associated with a hyalinized fibrin ring in the vessel lumina, changes reflecting a thrombophilic endovasculitis.

Multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MR) is a rare non-Langerhans histiocytosis that is characterized by cutaneous nodules and severe destructive arthritis. Although 25-30% of reported cases have been associated with internal malignancies, the pathophysiology of MR is unknown. Herein, we report two cases of MR that were associated with urologic neoplasms.(More)
