Histoplasmosis has emerged as an important opportunistic fungal infection in immunocompromised patients. Histoplasma is a dimorphic fungus that primarily involves lung and the environmental reservoir is soil. Although several cases of histoplasmosis have been reported in India but cytological diagnosis was made in a few cases. We are presenting two cases of(More)
Rosai-Dorfman Disease (RDD) or Sinus Histiocytosis with Massive Lymphadenopathy (SHML) is a rare disorder typically manifesting as enlarged lymph nodes with or without systemic involvement. These cases are often clinically misdiagnosed as lymphoma. Recognising this entity to distinguish it from lymphoma and other causes of histiocytosis is important because(More)
Cyclodextrins are oligosaccharides having outer hydrophilic surface and central hydrophobic cavity. These agents form inclusion complexes with poorly water-soluble drugs; hence they show an important implication for use in ophthalmics because of their applications in solubilising and stabilising the ocular drugs. Most of the drugs being used in ophthalmics(More)
Inflammatory pseudo-tumor of spleen, a benign reactive lesion of unknown etiology and pathogenesis, is extremely rare with isolated case reports in literature. These are usually misdiagnosed preoperatively, both clinically and radiologically; metastasis or lymphoproliferative disorders with pathological studies allow reliable diagnosis of the disease. We(More)
Histoplasma is a dimorphic fungus that primarily involves the lungs and the environmental reservoir is soil. It has emerged as an important opportunistic fungal infection in immunocompromised patients. Six cases of histoplasmosis with variable clinical presentations diagnosed either on cytology or histopathology are discussed - three were HIV-positive. The(More)
Gelatinous bone marrow transformation (GTBM) also known as serous atrophy is a degenerative change in the hematopoietic bone marrow and is a rare well recognized pathological entity. It was earlier described mainly in association with anorexia nervosa and psychiatric eating disorders, but recently it has been reported in ulcerative colitis, tuberculosis,(More)
Transferrin, the major iron binding protein in human plasma transports iron to various tissues. The first step in cellular iron uptake is binding of transferrin complex to the cell surface membrane by specific molecule known as transferrin receptors. Transferrin receptors are found in limited sites in normal tissues, in contrast, the receptors are widely(More)
Accurate estimation of the cost of a software minimizes the risk for the software development process. Applicability of the different cost estimation models is very crucial as the information required for the implementation of such models is imprecise and vague. In order to increase the accuracy of the model, it is proposed to introduce the concept of(More)
Oncocytic carcinoma is an extremely rare neoplasm of the salivary gland, with only a few cases reported in literature till date. We report the occurrence of this rare lesion in lip in a 43-year-old female presenting with a progressively increasing swelling for which excision was done. Fine needle aspiration was done and the smears revealed tumor cells with(More)
