Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is one of the most aggressive cancers of the skin. It has recently been reported that integration of a Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV) in receptor tyrosine phosphates type G (PTPRG) gene occurs in MCC, and that viral infections are associated with epigenetic silencing of tumor suppressor genes (TSG) in cancer. To examine whether(More)
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is one of the most aggressive cancers of the skin. RASSFs are a family of tumor suppressors that are frequently inactivated by promoter hypermethylation in various cancers. We studied CpG island promoter hypermethylation in MCC of RASSF2, RASSF5A, RASSF5C and RASSF10 by combined bisulfite restriction analysis (COBRA) in MCC(More)
In March 2014, an infection with the nematode Dirofilaria repens was diagnosed in a German citizen in the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. The patient had developed an itching subcutaneous nodule containing a female worm, which was identified as D. repens by 12S ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) gene sequencing. Autochthonous human D. repens infections have(More)
Das kombinierte Auftreten von Adenokarzinomen und follikulären Lymphomen ist sehr unwahrscheinlich, jedoch gab es vereinzelte Fallberichte. In der Pathologie sprechen wir von sog. Kollisionstumoren. Nach entsprechender Histologie und nach erfolgter Operation ist die adjuvante Chemotherapie ein bewährtes und effektives Mittel in der Tumorbehandlung. Wir(More)
The unspecific, idiopathic isolated osteolysis is a rare condition in the various known osteopathies and better known as Gorham–Stout syndrome (Gorham's disease, GD). It belongs to the primary idiopathic osteolysis, and its aetiology is poorly understood. Many different localisations have been described, but there are only 48 cases affecting the(More)
