Adult granulosa cell tumor (GCT) of the ovary is the most common malignancy amongst the sex cord stromal tumors. Clinical stage, age, tumor size, residual disease and several histologic factors have been reported to be of prognostic significance. There were 839 ovarian malignancies at our institute during the period from 1998 to 2002. Out of 54 granulosa(More)
Astroblastoma is a rare primary glial tumor of children and young adults. Radiologically astroblastoma presents as a large well-circumscribed supratentorial, solid-cystic heterogeneous mass. Histology shows perivascular pseudorosettes with hyalinization. Only a single case has been reported with signet-ring-like cell morphology. Signet-ring morphology in(More)
Teratoid Wilms' tumor with raised serum alpha-fetoprotein level is an unusual type of tumor. We, here, describe a twelve month old boy presenting with lumbar mass. Clinical features, radiological findings, gross examination, and histomorphological features are studied, and various differential diagnoses like Wilms' tumor with heterologous elements,(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness and accuracy of cytologic smears by making crush preparation as a diagnostic method, in central nervous system tumors. 278 patients with central nervous system tumors were investigated. In 98 cases, material was obtained intraoperatively during craniotomy and in 180 cases stereotactic biopsies were done. In(More)
The presence of sarcomatous element transforms the usually innocuous spermatocytic seminoma into a highly aggressive neoplasm. We report a case of spermatocytic seminoma with undifferentiated sarcomatous component in a 43-year-old male, presented with testicular mass since two and a half years. Orchidectomy was performed and after 9 months, the patient(More)
INTRODUCTION Hepatocellular carcinoma rarely metastasizes to skull base. CASE REPORT We report an extremely rare case of solitary skull base metastasis without metastasis to any other site, with right third, fourth, and sixth cranial nerve palsy as the initial manifestation of the disease. DISCUSSION The biopsy specimen of skull base lytic lesion(More)
Pituitary carcinomas are rare adenohypophyseal tumors with cerebrospinal or extracranial metastasis. None of the histologic findings distinguish pituitary adenoma from carcinoma. We describe clinico-pathological and immunohistological features of malignant prolactinoma. The patient initially presented with a prolactin-secreting pituitary adenoma. The tumor(More)
