BACKGROUND YKL-40 has been implicated as a mediator of collagen synthesis and extracellular matrix re-modeling as well as mitogenesis. Elevated serum levels of YKL-40 have been associated with worse survival in a variety of malignancies including breast cancer. We wished to determine if immunohistochemically detected expression had prognostic implications(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital mediastinal teratomas are rare and may present with nonimmune hydrops. The lesion may be misinterpreted on ultrasound.

20115 Background: YKL-40 has been implicated as a connective tissue growth factor and a migratory factor for endothelial cells. Elevated serum levels of YKL-40 have been found to correlate with worse survival in a variety of malignancies including breast cancer. We wished to determine if tumor overexpression of this protein also had prognostic implications(More)
