Hydatid disease is mainly caused by the larva of Echinococcus granulosus and it is endemic in many parts of the world like in India. Humans are the accidental intermediate hosts of this organism. Liver and lungs are the most commonly affected organs and breast is a rare primary site. Isolated involvement by hydatid cyst is still rarer. We report a case of(More)
BACKGROUND The cytological features of variants of medullary carcinoma of the thyroid (MCT) are sparsely documented in the literature from case reports. Detailed cytomorphological analysis of MCT variants and features helping to distinguish them from usual MCT are presented here. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 78 aspirates with a diagnosis of MCT over a(More)
The calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor is a rare benign odontogenic tumor that was first described by Pindborg in 1955. It accounts for less than 1% of all odontogenic neoplasms. The tumor is characterized histologically by the presence of polygonal epithelial cells, calcification, and eosinophilic deposits resembling amyloid. Noncalcifying Pindborg(More)
A 52-year-old woman presented with fracture upper end of the left humerus after trivial trauma and aspiration cytology from the lytic lesion in the upper humerus seen on X-ray revealed a metastatic papillary carcinoma from the thyroid. Total thyroidectomy confirmed the papillary carcinoma thyroid. Post-operatively, she was given radioactive iodine (I-131)(More)
The most common sites of cysts caused by hydatid disease are liver and lung. In the absence of visceral involvement, the disease rarely affects musculoskeletal and soft tissues. In such locations, hydatid cyst mimics commoner soft tissue tumors. A 12-year-old girl presented with a gradually increasing painless right shoulder swelling. With a clinical(More)
A 27-year-old nulliparous woman presented with large finger-like projections protruding from her vagina. Intraoperatively there were deposits in the pouch of Douglas. Clinical presentation and history of vaginal bleeding suggested malignancy. Histopathology of both the vaginal and pouch of Douglas masses showed endometrial glands and stroma. There was no(More)
OBJECTIVE Microfilaria of Wuchereria bancrofti has been described in many cytological specimens, where typical blood film morphology has been used for evaluation. However, these studies have not documented the morphological variations in microfilaria in cytological smears. In the present study, cytological findings in 32 clinically unsuspected cases of(More)
OBJECTIVE The study aimed to describe a case of vaginal polypoid endometriosis and its management. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study is a case report. The patient was a nulliparous woman aged 27 years who presented with pain in her lower abdomen and continuous bleeding per vaginum for 2 months. On speculum examination, multiple, smooth, polypoid masses(More)
