BACKGROUND Despite recent valuable steps in initiating a cancer registry in Iran, data depicting prevalence, incidence, and clinical picture of pancreatic tumors in the country are exceedinglyly sparse. With the aim of filling this knowledge gap, we reviewed cases in the pathology archive of Shahid Sadoughi hospital (Yazd, Iran), between 2001 and 2011. (More)
BACKGROUND Distant prostate cancers are commonly hormone refractory and exhibit increased growth no longer inhibited by androgen deprivation therapy. Understanding all molecular mechanisms contributing to uncontrolled growth is important to obtain effective treatment strategies for hormone refractory prostate cancers (HRPC). The aryl hydrocarbon receptor(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence rate of brain tumors has increased more than 40% in the past 20 years, especially in adults. We aimed to study the clinical and pathological findings of central nervous system (CNS) tumor patients and to evaluate their 5 year survival rates. MATERIALS AND METHODS The archives of all patients with CNS tumors in 6 health care(More)
Basidiobolomycosis is a rare fungal infection caused by Basidiobolus ranarum a worldwide environmental saprophyte fungus that is potentially a pathogen. B ranarum mainly affects the subcutaneous tissues but gastrointestinal and disseminated infections rarely have been reported previously. We report a case of B ranarum infection in a 12-year-old(More)
Glomus tumours (GTs) resemble the normal glomus body and have a predilection for skin and subcutaneous tissue. Although the majority of glomus tumours are small, benign neoplasms that occur in the dermis or subcutis of the extremities and cases of atypical or malignant variants have been reported. We report a case of a man who presented with a 1-year(More)
Kidneys are complex organs with multiple vital functions. They are an essential part of the urinary system and also are necessary for regulation of body homeostasis like electrolytes, acid base balance and blood pressure. Diagnosis of renal injuries is based on clinical and histopathologic features. In a descriptive cross-sectional study conducted in Shahid(More)
BACKGROUND By some estimates, colorectal carcinoma is the third most common cancer worldwide. The most appropriate method of treatment, especially of its metastatic form, is determined based on KRAS status. The present study was conducted on patients with colorectal cancer positive or neagtive for a KRAS mutation in terms of survival rate and the response(More)
INTRODUCTION It has been shown that biphasic electric stimuli may be effective in stimulation of bone growth. This study aimed to evaluate the role of direct electric current on osteogenesis of the parietal bone in a canine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS After surgical implantation of assembly involving 3 electrodes in the parietal bones in 5 adult male(More)
Endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) is a rare uterine sarcoma. Compared with other uterine malignancies, it occurs at an earlier age (42-58 years) and about 10-25% of the patients are premenopausal. The tumours have an indolent growth, with a tendency for late recurrence. Metastases are rarely detected before the diagnosis of the primary lesion. We report a(More)
Isolated central nervous system (CNS) tuberculoma is a rare disease. This disease is associated with high morbidity and mortality, despite modern methods of detection and treatment. CNS tuberculosis can present as meningitis, arachnoiditis, tuberculomas or the uncommon form of tuberculous subdural empyema and brain abscess. We present the clinical,(More)
