Patients with cervical adenopathy suspicious for malignancy are often referred to the Otolaryngology Service for tissue diagnosis. Confirmation of nodal involvement by upper aero-digestive tract tumors (UADT) is best obtained by fine needle aspiration (FNA). Reported studies of FNA for lymphoma diagnosis have yielded conflicting results. Retrospective(More)
To our knowledge and literature search, Staphylococcus schleiferi subspecies coagulans infection in human beings has rarely been described in the medical literature. Furthermore, we believe that this is a first detailed case report of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus schleiferi subspecies coagulans infection in a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma.(More)
e18568 Background: Genomic aberrations are associated with MM survival and disease evolution. The combination of cytogenetics and Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) reveals more anomalies than CG alone. The incidence of CG abnormalities in African American MM patients (AA) is not known. METHODS Records of patients with MM seen at Kings County(More)
Hemoperitoneum due to spontaneous rupture of hepatocellular carcinoma is a life-threatening and rare condition in western countries with an incidence of less than 3% because of early detection of cirrhosis and neoplasm. Here, we describe a case of a 66-year-old male patient with altered mental status with hemorrhagic shock. Computed tomography scan of(More)
81 Background: While depression is often under-diagnosed in the general population, the rate of under-diagnosis among patients with cancer may be far higher. The American Cancer Society reports that a quarter of all patients with cancer may suffer from depression. We seek to identify a link between pain and depression among patients with cancer which may(More)
6622 Background: CG characteristics play a critical role in outcome and therapy of AML. The incidence of normal CG in general population is estimated at 40%. The incidence of abnormal CG in AA population is not known. CG abnormalities help define the pathogenesis of AML subtypes and are prognostically significant; they occur in 40% of all AML cases, but(More)
e19525 Background: The ability of FNA specimens to provide a definitive lymphoma diagnosis is controversial. Otolaryngolists routinely employ FNA for cervical lymph nodes which may have arisen from head and neck carcinomas, since incisional procedures may interfere with potentially curative surgery. METHODS The charts of 176 patients referred to the Kings(More)
