Intestinal argentaffin carcinoids, thought to originate from enterochromaffin cells, occasionally contain large amounts of substance P-like immunoreactivity in addition to 5-HT. The cytoplasmic granules of one such tumour were isolated. The granules, which in the electron microscope were shown to be argentaffin, contained both substance P-like(More)
Breast cancer is a major health problem in many parts of the world. Its impact in Saudi Arabia will be more obvious when the national data is released from the National Cancer Registry (NCR) in the near future. It is the most common cancer referred to the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSH&RC). This is a retrospective review of all(More)
A clear relationship between vitamin D status and the clinical indices of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) severity has not been convincingly established. We proposed that such a relationship might exist, in so far as vitamin D deficiency could contribute to the severity of metabolic bone disease and promote the growth of the parathyroid tumor.(More)
In the management of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), surgery is indicated for locoregional recurrent/persistent disease. In this study, we examined the effect of such surgery on serum TG and the course of the disease in 21 patients with PTC (mean age 38.5 yr), who after the initial surgery and radioactive iodine (RAI) ablation developed high TG (>10 ng/ml)(More)
The sympathetic innervation of the liver of monkey and man has been investigated in a combined fluorescence histochemical, chemical and electron microscopical study. By means of the Falck-Hillarp fluorescence method a dense network of monoamine-containing nerve fibers was visualized in liver tissue of monkey and man. The nerve fibers ran in close contact to(More)
A case of ophthalmomyiasis interna posterior (OIP) caused by the larva of the Reindeer warble fly is reported. The larva was initially found intraretinally in the inferior parts of the fundus. From this position it moved into the macula lutea within two days, causing decreased visual acuity. Acute vitrectomy was performed and the larva was removed through a(More)
Thyroid cancer (TC) is a common malignancy encountered at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSH&RC). Of 19,885 different malignant tumors seen during the period fro 1975 to 1989, there were 875 cases (4.4%) of TC. Of 1374 tumors of endocrine glands seen during the same period, 67% were thyroid neoplasms. TC represented 7.5% (618 cases)(More)
Clinical observations on 10 cases of methanol poisoning, with particular reference to ocular manifestations, are reported. Four patients stated that they had blurring of vision, one of these also had a temporary loss of the lower parts of the visual fields and another one visual hallucinations. Hyperaemia or oedema of the optic discs were found in 5(More)
To evaluate its potential as an alternative to angiography in the diagnosis of pancreatic tumors, we performed selective vein catheterization for hormone assay on 11 patients with islet cell tumors and islet cell hyperplasias. In all patients, the abnormal pancreatic tissue was correctly localized preoperatively by this method.
From 1861 to 1975 fifty-three cases of blunt renal pedicle injury have been reported. Sixty-five kidneys were involved (twelve bilateral injuries) and 32 of them were removed. Reconstructive surgery was tried on 17 kidneys, of which only one healed without complication and with recovery of normal function. In addition, in 4 patients with bilateral injury,(More)
