BACKGROUND Atypical prostatic hyperplasia (APH) is a pseudoneoplastic lesion that can mimic prostate adenocarcinoma because of its cytologic and architectural features. Suspension of date palm pollen (DPP) is an herbal mixture that is widely used in folk medicine for male infertility. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of DPP suspension… (More)
A case of an aneurysmal bone cyst of the frontal bone is presented. This lesion is rare in the calvaria. It is a benign condition, and may extend intracranially. Total surgical removal is recommended whenever possible either in one stage or in multiple stages. The operation is comparatively easier in the calvaria than it is in the vertebral column or the… (More)
Red onion scales (ROS) contain large amounts of flavonoids that are responsible for the reported antioxidant activity, immune enhancement, and anticancer property. Atypical prostatic hyperplasia (APH) was induced in adult castrated Wistar rats by both s.c. injection of testosterone (0.5 mg/rat/day) and by smearing citral on shaved skin once every 3 days for… (More)
OBJECTIVES In developing countries and worldwide cervical cancer is an important cause of female mortality. Reports describing the frequency and pattern of abnormal Pap smears in Saudi Arabia, using the revised Bethesda system (RBS) are very few. The current study was conducted to explore the changing pattern of epithelial cell abnormalities (ECA) detected… (More)
Primary clear cell adenocarcinomas most commonly involve the genitourinary system, including the vagina. Previously, primary clear cell adenocarcinomas of the vagina have been discussed within the context of prenatal exposure to diethylstilbestrol. Due to its widely proven role in the development of this carcinoma, administration of diethylstilbestrol is… (More)
BACKGROUND Primary intracranial germ cell tumors are rare (ICGCTs) and usually localized in the pineal and suprasellar regions of the brain. They are divided into histologic types: Germinoma, teratoma choriocarcinoma, embryonal carcinoma, yolk sac tumor, and malignant mixed germ cell tumors (MMGCTs). Neuroimaging evaluation is useful to distinguish between… (More)
We present 20 cases of primary intracranial lymphoma and review the most important published series on this subject. The clinical patterns and the differential diagnosis from other intracranial space-occupying lesions on the CT and angiographic evidence are discussed. Surgical treatment was given in 19 of our cases, followed in 17 cases by radiotherapy and… (More)
External carotid-venous fistulas are discussed, and the literature is reviewed. An illustrative case is presented that demonstrates some of the features of this condition and forms a basis for discussion.
