We report a secretory meningioma with metastasis from a pulmonary adenocarcinoma in a 48-year-old woman. Secretory meningioma can simulate metastatic disease both clinically and pathologically. Secretory meningioma and tumour-to-tumour metastasis are each rare, and we believe this to be the first report of their coincidence.
Although axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) has been the standard intervention in breast cancer patients with sentinel lymph node (SLN) metastasis, only a small proportion of patients benefit from this operation, because most do not harbor additional metastases in the axilla. Several predictive tools have been constructed to identify patients with low… (More)
The preliminary phytochemical screening of the root of Clerodendrum baronianum and antimicrobial activities of the crude extract in various solvent systems were determined. A pure colorless needle shape crystal compound (CB) was separated by thin layer and column chromatographic methods. The yield is found to be (10.3 mg %) based upon the ethyl acetate… (More)
AIM To test if reventilation with room air (RA) or 100% oxygen (O2) after asphyxia would differentially affect neuronal damage in different brain areas of newborn pigs. METHODS Anaesthetized piglets were subjected to 10 min asphyxia (n=27) or served as time controls (n=7). Reventilation started with either RA or O2 for 1 h, and was continued with RA for… (More)
AIMS To assess the reliability of nodal staging in colorectal carcinomas (CRCs) when only lymph nodes close to the tumour are recovered and examined histologically. METHODS Lymph nodes from CRC resection specimens were recovered into two fractions: one from around the tumour and the 3 cm sidelong bowel segment associated with it in the proximal and distal… (More)
