Tubulocystic carcinoma is a tumor entity, which is not yet included in the WHO-classification of renal tumors. We report a series of 11 cases of this tumor, 6 of which were examined in by immunohistochemistry using a panel of five antibodies (CK7, CK34βE12, CK19, CD10 and P504S). All patients were men. Each had renal tumor stage of pT1N0M0, with a diameter(More)
Recent biological studies have classified breast carcinomas into HER2-overexpressing, estrogen receptor-positive/luminal, basal- and normal-like groups. According to this new biological classification, the objectives of our study were to assess the clinical, morphologic and immunophenotypic characteristics of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the breast in order(More)
To evaluate the incidence of high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) and atypical small acinar proliferation (ASAP) in an initial 21-core extended biopsy scheme and to determine the prostate cancer detection rate in the repeated biopsy. Between 2002 and 2008, 2,006 patients underwent a first 21-core extended biopsy scheme. Incidences of(More)
Determining the primary origin of skin metastases might be a challenging issue for pathologists, especially when there is no primary history or when this history is unavailable. The poor specificity of morphological appreciation is challenging, emphasizing the need for ancillary studies. We have retrieved 44 cases of skin metastases from our pathology(More)
Primary intrapericardial thymoma is an unusual localization. We report a case of a patient with an isolated and primary pericardial thymoma. This 72-year-old woman presented with dyspnea, dysphony and myalgia. The radiological evaluation revealed an intrapericardial mass. Surgical exploration showed a hemorrhagic and infiltrative tumor in the pericardial(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the value of a 21-sample biopsy protocol in predicting tumour localization in radical prostatectomy (RP) specimens, compared with sextant biopsies. PATIENTS AND METHODS In all, 300 consecutive patients underwent 21-sample prostate biopsies, followed by RP. The protocol consisted of sextant, three midline, six far lateral and six(More)
