Distinction between multiple primary cancers and intrapulmonary metastases in patients with synchronous multifocal lung cancer can be challenging. Histological and genotypic assessment of multifocal lung tumors have been suggested to influence the staging. The aim of this study was to determine the role of morphology and genotype in staging of surgically(More)
Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is defined by estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negativity. Patients with TNBC frequently undergo an aggressive clinical course due to the unavailability of specific targeted therapies. Androgen receptor (AR) was reported to be expressed in up to 60% of TNBC cases but(More)
Break-apart ALK FISH probe is the FDA approved approach for detection of ALK rearrangements in lung carcinoma patients who may benefit from ALK kinase inhibitors. The FISH assay can be technically challenging and difficult to interpret. ALK immunohistochemistry and next generation sequencing have been proposed as alternative approaches. In this study, we(More)
OBJECTIVE Asbestos bodies (AB), ferroprotein-coated asbestos fiber may be present in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of asbestos exposed persons. The present study was conducted to evaluate the prevalence and number of asbestos bodies in the BALF of tenable asbestos exposed workers compare to general population in Thailand. MATERIAL AND METHOD Thirty(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to investigate clinical and radiologic manifestations of pulmonary cryptococcosis in immunocompetent patients and their outcomes after treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records, initial and follow-up chest computed tomography scans and/or radiographs for initial clinical and radiologic manifestations(More)
Histological subtyping of surgically resected lung adenocarcinoma has been shown to be of prognostic significance, and limited surgical resection has been proposed as a treatment of choice for early-stage lung adenocarcinoma. The accuracy of histological subtyping has been recently assessed in the surgical resection and small biopsy specimens; however, the(More)
BACKGROUND Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene rearrangement is detected in 3% to 13% of non-small cell lung carcinoma patients, and these patients benefit from ALK inhibitors. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, the clinical and histological characteristics and the treatment outcomes of ALK-rearranged lung adenocarcinoma using(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with diffuse proliferative lupus nephritis (class IV) who responded to treatment within 6 months had better renal outcome than those who did not. Glomerular macrophage is known to be associated with poor renal outcome in glomerular diseases. OBJECTIVE To evaluate association between glomerular macrophage number and early treatment(More)
