BACKGROUND AND AIMS Intraductal papillary mucinous tumours (IPMT) of the pancreas constitute a unique pathological entity with an overall incidence of associated invasive malignancy of 20%. The malignant potential of an individual IPMT cannot be accurately predicted. Preoperative estimation of the risk of associated invasive malignancy with IPMT would be of(More)
The Carney triad (CT) is gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), paraganglioma, and pulmonary chondroma. The GISTs of CT show different clinical, molecular, and morphologic features to usual adult GISTs but are similar to the majority of pediatric GISTs. We postulated that these GISTs would show negative staining for succinate dehydrogenase B (SDHB). We(More)
To study the pathogenesis of osteoporosis in patients with chronic liver disease, we performed dynamic bone histomorphometry and measured serum bone Gla-protein in 80 patients with various types of chronic liver disease. These results were compared with results obtained in 40 healthy controls. Mean trabecular bone volume and mean trabecular thickness were(More)
Increasing numbers of empirical studies and theoretical frameworks for preventing sexual violence are appearing in the research- and practice-based literatures. The consensus of this work is that although important lessons have been learned, the field is still in the early stages of developing and fully researching effective models, particularly for the(More)
The records of 15 patients with idiopathic subglottic stenosis treated at Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, between 1980 and 1994 were reviewed. All were female and had similar characteristic clinical and histopathologic features. Endoscopic laser vaporization was the primary treatment in 12 patients and was successful in maintaining the airway of 8 of(More)
The clinico-pathological features of four patients with placental-site trophoblastic tumour (trophoblastic pseudotumour) are presented. One patient had the nephrotic syndrome associated with evidence of disseminated intravascular coagulation, with complete resolution after hysterectomy. In two patients the tumour extended beyond the uterus, and one of them(More)
Afferent arteriolar C3 deposition was the sole histological abnormality in 79 and the major histological abnormality in an additional 39 of 959 renal biopsies performed over a 10-year period. Of these 79 patients, hematuria was the presenting symptom in 90%, with coincident loin pain in 49%. Urine microscopy of asymptomatic first-degree relatives revealed(More)
A 78-yr-old previously well caucasian female presented with a 6-wk history of profuse watery diarrhea and weight loss. Clinical investigation showed evidence of mild malabsorption. Multiple biopsies of colonic mucosa revealed a wide subepithelial band of collagen typical of collagenous colitis. Duodenal biopsies showed similar collagen deposition and(More)
A severe prolonged illness that was characterized by deep jaundice and debilitating pruritus occurred in five patients after the use of flucloxacillin. The symptoms and signs of liver disease took at least two months to resolve; after four- to nine-months' follow-up, liver enzyme activities have remained abnormal in all patients. Examination of liver biopsy(More)
AIM We examined whether introduction of a standardised pancreatic cancer minimum data set improved the reporting of key pathological features across multiple institutions. METHODS From seven different pathology departments that are members of the New South Wales Pancreatic Cancer Network, 109 free text reports and 68 synoptic reports were compared. (More)
