Kimura's disease is an entity which is common in Asia with predilection for males. Earliest reports were from China. Kimura et al reported the case in detailfrom Japan 1948. Cytological diagnosis of Kimura's helps in allaying fears of malignancies in clinicians and patients. When all the cytological features are seen, this diagnosis should be borne in mind,(More)
BACKGROUND Basidiobolomycosis is a rare chronic subcutaneous infection caused by Basidiobolus ranarum, which is usually treated with potassium iodide. Extensive deforming lesions in children can occur owing to lack of early diagnosis and/or inappropriate treatment. CASE REPORT An 8-year-old girl child presented to us with extensive deforming plaque-like(More)
Oncocytic tumours of adrenal gland are rare lesions with approximately twenty-five cases being documented in literature. A majority of them are nonfunctional and benign. We report a case of adrenal oncocytoma in a 44-year-old male, who underwent a laparotomy for a large mass in the abdomen, which was located above the left kidney. Routine histopathological(More)
Bone marrow aspirations and bone marrow biopsies are important diagnostic procedures. A comparative study of both the procedures done simultaneously was retrospectively reviewed in 160 cases where the clinical history is correlated with BMA and BMB results. The advantage of each method is analyzed. Correlation of our findings with that given in the(More)
A two-month-old female child presented with discrete skin-colored papules on the forehead and scalp. She was earlier diagnosed to have neuroblastoma of the adrenal gland which had metastasized to the liver. Histological sections of the skin lesion showed a nodule composed of sheets of cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and an occasional grooving of(More)
This study evaluated the protective effect of ellagic acid on sodium valproate-induced sperm abnormalities in male Wistar rats. A total of 30 rats were grouped into five groups, each having 6 animals. Vehicle, sodium valproate (400 mg/kg) and ellagic acid (10, 25, 50 mg/kg) were given orally from day 1 to day 7, and ellagic acid was continued for 3 more(More)
Multiple diverticulosis of the jejunum represents a very rare entity. Jejunal diverticula are found to be the rarest of all small bowel diverticula. The disease is usually asymptomatic and often becomes clinically relevant when complicated. This rarity makes it a difficult differential diagnosis. Related complications such as diverticulitis, perforation,(More)
Ectopic cervical thymoma is a rare tumour that probably arises from thymic tissue trapped during the migration of the thymus into the anterior mediastinum from the third and fourth pharyngeal pouches. As it occurs in the region of the thyroid gland it mimics thyroid lesions and can cause confusion to the clinician, sonologist and cytologist.(More)
Isolated deletion of the long arm of chromosome 20 [del(20q12)] is a rare abnormality in patients with de novo myelodysplastic syndrome. It is characterised by refractory thrombocytopenia, minimal haematological dysplasia and a lower risk for progression to acute myeloid leukaemia. Its distinction from chronic autoimmune thrombocytopenia, although(More)
Calcifying fibrous pseudotumors of the testicular and paratesticular soft tissue are relatively rare. We would like to report the first documented case of calcifying fibrous pseudotumor of the tunica vaginalis in Indian medical literature. This is a case of a 55 year old male who presented with a painless scrotal mass of 10 years duration. Histological(More)
