OBJECT The structure of the filum terminale (FT) is important in the development of tethered cord syndrome (TCS) in children. Although many studies have been performed on the histological structure of the FT in adults, there has been no detailed investigation for those of fetuses. The aim of this study was to examine the histological structure of the FT in(More)
Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of the urinary bladder is very rare. It is mandatory to make differential diagnosis among lymphoma, chronic cystitis and LELC because of different therapeutic approach. A bladder tumor was found in a 90-year-old patient suffering from hematuria. After transurethral resection, undifferentiated tumor with prominent(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND Thyroid transcription factor (TTF-1) is a tissue-specific transcription factor expressed in the epithelial cells of thyroid and lung. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the expression of TTF-1 and clinico-pathological parameters in pulmonary adenocarcinoma and adenosquamous carcinoma. METHODS Resection(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate changes in collagen structure in the cardinal and uterosacral ligaments of rats that were administered vitamin C during pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN Eighteen female rats were divided into three groups: six pregnant rats administered 1.25mg/ml/day of vitamin C during pregnancy (Group A); six non-pregnant rats that were(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) is associated with chronic gastritis, peptic ulcers, gastric adenocarcinomas and mucosa associated tissue lymphomas. Cytotoxin associated gene A (CagA) is one of the virulence factors of H.pylori. It is hypothesized that reactive oxygen species (ROS) play roles in H.pylori associated disease especially in(More)
Endometriosis of the uterine cervix is a rare lesion that is generally asymptomatic in gynaecological practice. We present a case with postcoital bleeding due to a cervical mass mimicking cervical polyp or fibroma which was histologically proven as cervical endometriosis later. Cervical endometriosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of(More)
INTRODUCTION Fibro-osseous lesions of the skull and facial bones are benign tumors, but they can be mistaken for malignant tumors due to their clinically aggressive behavior. Cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF) is a benign fibro-osseous lesion characterized by slow growth and fibrous and calcified tissue content. COFs are locally destructive lesions causing(More)
Graham-Little-Piccardi-Lasseur Syndrome (GLPLS) is a variant of lichen planopilaris, which is characterized by progressive cicatricial alopecia of scalp, non-cicatricial alopecia of axillae and pubic regions, and keratosis pilaris-like follicular papules over trunk and extremities. GLPLS is a disease of unknown etiology. However, recent reports support a(More)
