OBJECTIVE Behçet's disease (BD) is a multisystemic disorder with a possible underlying pathology of immune-mediated vasculitis. Genetic susceptibility associated with HLA-B*51 and B*2702 has been implicated in its pathogenesis. Considering the recently defined regulatory mechanisms of NK cells through HLA class I binding receptors, we hypothesized that(More)
Accumulated evidence has shown the importance of Epstein-Barr virus in the pathogenesis of various lymphomas. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of Epstein-Barr virus expression and its effect on survival amongst diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) cases from two large tertiary care centres in Turkey with a particular interest in identifying(More)
Meckel diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. Its prevalence is approximately 2% of the general population. Complications because of Meckel diverticula are rare and almost nil beyond the age of 40 years. This report details the case of an 86-year-old patient with Meckel diverticulum that perforated because of a(More)
The use of neuronal nuclear antigen (NeuN) as a reliable neuronal marker in the differential diagnosis of clear cell neoplasms of the central nervous system was determined in a biopsy series of 23 cases. Immunohistochemical analyses were carried out by antisera against neuronal nuclear antigen, synaptophysin, neuron-specific enolase, microtubule-associated(More)
Cervical cancer is a preventable disease and the dysplasia it causes can be scanned by using a pap smear test. It can be beneficial to develop a computer-assisted diagnosis system to make the pap smear test robust and widespread. The most fundamental part of such a system is the segmentation of nuclei and cytoplasm in cervical cell images. The aim of this(More)
PURPOSE We performed this study to detect preoperative axillary metastases with ultrasound (US)-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB), to eliminate the need for time-consuming and costly sentinel lymph node (SLN) scintigraphy and biopsy steps in the treatment of breast cancer patients, and in that of with suspicious US findings, and to evaluate the(More)
We present the case of a 45-year-old man who presented with medication-resistant chronic bilateral nasal obstruction. The patient had no known history of allergy or any other disease. Nasal septoplasty was performed to relieve his symptoms. Histologically, thick collagen bundles were seen, characteristically whorling around vessels in a fibrotic stroma.(More)
A 30-year-old woman complained of right-sided epiphora for 2 years. She also reported diplopia on certain gaze positions and felt a hard mass behind the right medial inferior orbital rim. Magnetic resonance imaging studies demonstrated a relatively well-delineated mass in the right inferomedial orbit with minimal ethmoid sinus involvement. Histopathological(More)
The role of methylation status of the thyroid stimulating hormone receptor gene (TSHr) in the discrimination of benign and malignant thyroid nodules has already been studied using paraffin blocks and cell lines. As cytological sampling plays an important role in assessment of thyroidal nodules, we have investigated the potential clinical use of TSHr(More)
STUDY DESIGN Marginal resection of a paraspinal tumor in the thoracic vertebra was performed. OBJECTIVE To document a very rare pathology for a paraspinal tumor. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Primary leiomyosarcoma of the spine or paravertebral space is extremely rare. A case of a patient who was operated on for a mass in the spinal canal and whose(More)
