To correlate CD 4 counts with albuminuria and glomerular lesions in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), we studied 104 HIV positive patients (68 males, 36 females) of whom 100 patients were infected by heterosexual contact, 3 by transfusion, and 1 by i.v. drug abuse. We screened over nine months for albuminuria by urine dip stick(More)
Study of the argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regions (AGNORS), which was used extensively in cytogenetics, has been identified as a reliable indicator of cell proliferation and in turn, the malignant potential of a lesion. Premalignant and malignant lesions of the cervix are analysed for their AGNOR counts in this study. Statistically significant(More)
A sixty-year-old previously healthy male patient presented with anuric renal failure of sudden onset. He was detected to have Aspergillus fumigatus fungal balls in the renal pelvis, ureters and bladder which were removed and his renal function improved. He was treated with itraconazole and sent home. Three weeks later he again presented with anuria and(More)
Angiomatous meningioma accounts for 2.1% of all meningiomas. It has features of a typical benign meningioma with many small or large vascular channels which may predominate over its meningothelial elements. We present here a series of three cases of angiomatous meningioma, which posed diagnostic difficulty to clinicians, radiologists, and pathologists. All(More)
Liver X receptors (LXRs) alpha and beta are ligand-induced transcription factors that regulate transcription of genes encoding key regulators of cholesterol metabolism and transport, and of lipogenesis. Despite their high similarity, LXRalpha is the functionally dominant LXR isotype in the liver. The function of nuclear proteins can be affected by their(More)
Extra medullary deposits are often associated with myeloproliferative disorders, especially with myeloid neoplasia. These are called granulocytic sarcoma, aleukemic leukemia cutis, myeloblastoma, chloroleukemia, extra-medullary myeloid tumor, and chloroma. They commonly present in the bone, periosteum, soft tissue, lymph nodes, and the skin but can occur(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)
