The evaluative character of a word is called its semantic orientation (SO). A positive SO indicates desirability (e.g. Good, Honest) and a negative SO indicates undesirability (e.g., Bad, Ugly). This paper presents a method, based on Turney (2003), for inferring the SO of a word from its statistical association with strongly-polarized words and morphemes in(More)
Two cases of Kikuchi's histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis diagnosed by fine needle aspiration (FNA) of enlarged lymph nodes are reported. The FNA smears contained randomly activated lymphoid cells, necrotic debris, karyorrhectic cells and prominent histiocytes, suggesting the presence of reactive lymph nodes. The true nature of the lesions was evident(More)
Of 210 patients with thyrotoxicosis, 21 (10%) had atrial fibrillation. Five of these patients (24%) had systemic emboli (which were multiple in three patients, one of whom died) and two other patients had pulmonary embolism. Embolic disease is common in thyrotoxic atrial fibrillation, and anticoagulant therapy should be considered for all patients.
An unusual case of primary angiitis of the central nervous system associated with Hodgkin's disease in a 55-year-old-man is reported. After a 10-month history of acute transverse myelitis, the patient was diagnosed as having nodular sclerosing-type Hodgkin's disease involving the retroperitoneal lymph nodes. The patient died of a brainstem hemorrhage 1 week(More)
AIMS To report further cases of solitary necrotic nodule of the liver and to study its nature. METHODS Seven nodules were retrieved from 4000 necropsy and surgical liver specimens coming to light over the past five years. All of them satisfied the diagnostic criteria of solitary necrotic nodule: a solid lesion with a central necrotic core and a hyalinised(More)
Kimura's disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology, presenting usually as painless subcutaneous swellings in the head and neck region or in the salivary glands. The cytologic features of fine-needle aspirates of eight cases of Kimura's disease were studied with reference to the histologic appearance of the subsequent surgical specimens.(More)
We report a case of malignant lymphoma in the soft tissues exhibiting prominent myxoid stromal changes and cord-like cellular arrangement, mimicking the architectural as well as cytological features of myxoid chondrosarcoma, except for the absence of tumour lobulation. The only clue to the possible lymphomatous nature of the lesion was the past history of(More)
