It has been suggested that DNA sequence variants of HPV16 contribute to differences in the behavior of individual cervical lesions. To address this question, we have analyzed the association of HPV16 variants with diagnostic severity in 354 HPV16-positive Oklahoman women. HPV16 variant status was determined by PCR amplification and DNA sequencing of the E6(More)
Composite lymphoma of T-cell and B-cell type is uncommon, and the one occurring primarily on skin is extremely rare. Herein, we report a unique case of composite lymphoma of mycosis fungoides and cutaneous small B-cell lymphoma in a 73-year-old male patient. The patient presented with multiple erythematous patches, plaques, and nodules on the upper arms,(More)
BACKGROUND HPV16 variants are associated with different risks for development of CIN3 and invasive cancer, although all are carcinogenic. The relationship of HPV 16 variants to cancer survival has not been studied. METHODS 155 HPV16-positive cervical cancers were categorized according to European and non-European variant patterns by DNA sequencing of the(More)
Palisading granulomas with necrobiosis are frequently encountered in dermatopathology, with granuloma annulare, necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum, and rheumatoid nodule being the most frequently rendered diagnoses. We report a series of 9 patients who developed palisading, necrobiotic, and necrotizing granulomas, associated with the presence of foreign(More)
Multiple melanocytic markers are useful for differentiating between melanoma and nonmelanocytic lesions but generally do not distinguish melanoma from nevi and atypical melanocytic lesions. We sought to determine if several immunohistochemical markers recently described in the literature, including ezrin, KBA.62, p-Akt, CD166, and nestin, may be helpful in(More)
Patients with invasive oral and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas infected with human papillomaviruses (HPV) demonstrate improved survival. HPV detection in tumors may assist in risk stratification of patients and in guiding optimum treatment. Two reverse line blot assays [Linear Array (LA) and INNO-LiPA (LiPA)] were evaluated for detection of HPV(More)
