Since the original report, this database has increased to >20 000 proteins entries and has become the largest database for literature-derived(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumours (IMT) or plasma cell granuloma of the larynx is a rare lesion of larynx. There is a wide variability in the clinical manifestations, histologic features, and prognosis of IMTs depending on their exact site of occurrence and age group affected.

Cystic hygromas are rare tumours. The pathophysiology lies in occlusion of lymph channels. It may present as a congenital swelling or in adulthood. There are various chromosomal anomalies associated with it. We here have are presented a series of 9 patients of cystic hygromas and their management.

There is some “grey zone” in thyroid cytology where the diagnostic efficacy declines sharply rendering it difficult to categorize the lesions resulting in discrepancy. So, a cross-sectional study was conducted to determine the accuracy of FNAC in diagnosis of thyroid swelling and to assess the correlation between preoperative cytological diagnosis and post(More)
Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) presents with a typical history of recurrent otorrhoea with tympanic membrane perforation. The diagnosis of cholesteatoma is usually made on otologic examination. High resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is indicated to evaluate the extension and the complications of cholesteatoma. The aim of the work was to study(More)

Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) are rare tumours but are the commonest mesenchymal neoplasms in the gastrointestinal tract. To our knowledge, there is no large case series in Asian countries in which a clinico-radiological descriptive analysis of these tumours has been carried out. In this retrospective study, we analysed our experience of 70(More)
