Hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) is present in 10-32% of chronic liver disease patients, carries a poor prognosis and is treatable by liver transplantation (LT). Previous reports have shown high LT mortality in HPS and severe HPS (arterial oxygen (PaO(2)) < or =50 mmHg). We reviewed outcomes in HPS patients who received LT between 2002 and 2008 at two(More)
Mammary hamartomas are uncommon benign lesions rarely associated with malignancy. We report a case of a 25-year-old female patient presenting with a lump in the left breast. Fine needle aspiration cytology showed features of invasive ductal carcinoma along with normal benign glands that were mistaken for normal breast tissue. However, the mastectomy(More)
Nodular hidradenoma is an established entity as a skin adnexal tumor arising from eccrine sweat glands. A skin adnexal tumor located in the breast is unusual and is one of the differential diagnoses for subareolar breast nodules. With the exception of gynecomastia, other lesions of the male breast are not very common. The review of literature showed only 25(More)

The authors report one such case in a 60-year-old woman, which presented as a slow-growing nasal mass arising from the nasal septum, with no lymph(More)
We previously demonstrated that the human endometrium synthesizes and secretes a specific protein designated "Progestagen-associated Endometrial Protein" or PEP. This work was undertaken to determine luteal phase levels of PEP in serum of cycling women with histologic evidence of adequate endometrium (endometrium in phase) or inadequate endometrium(More)
Endometriosis is the presence of functioning endometrium outside the uterus. Endometriosis rarely occurs in the abdominal wall. Majority of abdominal wall endometriosis occur in or adjacent to surgical scars, following caesarean section or hysterectomy. Laparotomy scar endometriosis following salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy has rarely been reported. We(More)
We present a case of papillary cystic low-grade adenocarcinoma of endolymphatic sac origin. These tumors are very rare and only a few cases have been reported in literature. They have a protracted clinical course causing progressive invasion and bony destruction. Radiologically, they appear as a heterogenous lobulated vascular mass, invading bone and(More)
