Sensations of the dorsal surface of the hand are supplied by the radial and ulnar nerves with the boundary between these two nerves classically being the midline of the fourth digit. Overlap and variations of this division exist and a communicating branch (RUCB) between the radial and ulnar nerves could potentially explain variations in the sensory(More)
Mylohyoid bridging on the mandible is a hyperostotic variation considered as one of the cranial non-metric characteristics. Most researchers have indicated that such non-quantitative traits can be used for the investigation of population history and these traits show differences according to societies. In the present study, we investigated the incidence of(More)
There are several anthropometric studies regarding the nose, however none of them involves data about a statistical shape analysis. In this study, a landmark-based geometric morphometric technique was used to analyze the nasal shapes in a young Turkish adult population.A population of 75 female and 75 male volunteer Turkish young adults whose ages ranged(More)
Carcinoma arising from ectopic breast tissue, either supernumerary breast or aberrant breast tissue, is extremely rare. Carcinoma occurs more frequently in the ectopic breast tissue of the axilla than in extra-axillary ectopic breast tissue. Here we report a case of an invasive lobular carcinoma arising from extra-axillary ectopic breast tissue and(More)
The most common cause of a neck mass that increases in size on the Valsalva maneuver is laryngocele. Jugular phlebectasia is a congenital dilation of the jugular vein, which is extremely rare in adults, may present similarly. Duplication of the internal jugular vein (IJV), which is usually encountered coincidentally, is another rare anatomic variation.(More)
During dissection of the submental region of a male cadaver, we encountered an abnormal digastric muscle on both sides. Two muscle bundles, both of which fused with mylohyoid muscle close to the midline, were observed on the right side. The anterior one originated from the digastric fossa and its length and width were 27 and 9 mm, respectively. The(More)
An unusual inferior attachment of pectoralis minor muscle was found on the right side of a male cadaver. The tendinous attachment, originating only from the 5th rib, was detected during the routine practical dissections. There were no other associated features in the thoracic region of this cadaver. We believe that this variation that has not been reported(More)
S ignet cell carcinoma is a variant of adenocarcinoma commonly seen in the gastrointestinal system. Dominance of a signet cell carcinoma component in adenocarcinoma is generally considered as a sign of poor prognosis. Primary signet cell carcinoma of the breast is not seen as a distinct histological type in the World Health Organization classification, and(More)
