Only a few cases of extranodal Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated B-cell lymphomas arising from patients with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) have been described. We report a case of AITL of which secondary cutaneous EBV-associated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) developed after the initial diagnosis of AITL. A 65-year-old Chinese male(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) of Epstein-Barr (EB) virus is an important oncogene. Fascin is an actin cross-linking protein involved in cell migration and adhesion. Phosphorylated signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (pStat3) is a member of STATs family, which is closely related to tumorigenesis. This study was to(More)
Nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma (NCMH) is an extremely rare benign tumor arising in the sinonasal tract, predominantly involving infants and children. To date, only 27 cases are reported in the international literature and there have been no reported cases of malignant transformation. We present a 40-year-old female patient with nasal obstruction and(More)
There are controversies regarding the histogenesis of stromal cells of hemangioblastoma, and no hypothesis has conclusively been proven. We report a case of unusual hemangioblastoma in a middle-aged man with von Hippel-Lindau disease. Neuroimaging revealed multifocal gadolinium-enhancing masses were located within both sides of the cerebellar hemisphere.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relation between expression of angiogenesis-related factors, namely vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGFbeta(1)), and microvessel count (MVC) in invasive breast cancer and analyze its clinical implications. METHODS VEGF, TGFbeta (1) and CD34 expressions in 62 surgical specimens of(More)
Synovial sarcoma is a rare aggressive neoplasm occurring at any site of the body, mainly in young adults. It may also arise in the CNS but has seldom been reported. We report a case of unusual intracranial synovial sarcoma in a young male patient. Neuroimaging revealed a large gadolinium-enhancing mass was located at the right anterior cranial fossa and was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relation of liver mass to, liver hymodynamics and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 in patients with liver cirrhosis. METHODS The liver mass was measured by liver biopsy, hepatic hemodynamics by ultrasonography, and the contents of hyalurionic acid (HA), human procollagen III (HPC III) and collagen type IV (C IV) by(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expressions of human telomerase reverse transcriptase (h-TERT), c-myc, and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) in chronic viral hepatitis (CVH), liver cirrhosis and primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and understand their possible role in liver carcinogenesis. METHODS Totally 157 liver disease specimens were(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Both macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) and DJ-1 protein have been shown to relate with cell invasion and metastasis in tumors. However, the role of DJ-1 in invasion and metastasis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and its relation to MIF expression in NPC are not fully understood. The aim of present study is to determine(More)
