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)
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)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate Pap smear (PS) diagnoses at a tertiary care hospital using the revised Bethesda system, and to compare the results with other similar studies.

UNLABELLED Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) of the thyroid gland is a widely accepted and accurate method for triaging patients with thyroid nodules. Thyroid FNA suffers from a reporting confusion due to multiplicity of category terminologies. To address this, The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBSRTC) was recently introduced for unifying(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)
BACKGROUND Primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL), a rare form of aggressive extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), has increased in incidence during the last three decades and occurs in both immune compromised and immune competent hosts. It has an overall poor prognosis. OBJECTIVE This study attempts to further delineate the clinico-pathological,(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)
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)
