A solid-pseudopapillary tumor is an uncommon and "enigmatic" pancreatic neoplasm, and the term encompasses the two most conspicuous histological features: solid and pseudopapillary areas. Grossly, it appears as a large solid, cystic or solid-cystic mass frequently having necrotic and hemorrhagic zones. Histologically, solid-pseudopapillary tumors are(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a major cause of central nervous system damage leading to sensorineural hearing loss, mental retardation and cerebral palsy. OBJECTIVES Identify the type of organ involvement and understand the histopathogenesis of damage in foetuses of women with a CMV-highly positive amniotic fluid. STUDY DESIGN(More)
A regional experience environment in virtual microscopy and digital pathology comprehending the digital cytology is presented. The project has been conducted in Emilia-Romagna and it has been planned for the promotion and the quality assessment in screening cytology and histology for the prevention of the tumors of uterine cervix, breast and colon-rectum(More)
it is known that pancreatic serous cystic tumors are uncommon pancreatic tumors. Grossly, they are more frequently microcystic or oligocystic [1]. The solid form is rarely described in literature. To our knowledge, only four cases of solid serous neoplasms have been described [2, 3, 4, 5] (Table 1). Herein, we present the fifth case of solid serous cystic(More)
The cells in the local chlorotic areas of Gomphrena globosa L. leaves infected with tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) accumulate a significant amount of viral particles. The cells in the surrounding tissue have a relatively low number of virions, which are often degraded. The cells surrounding the forming local lesion have pronounced signs of activated autolysis.(More)
Ultrastructural examination of tobacco mosaic virus-induced local lesions growing in Datura stramonium leaves is carried out. It is demonstrated that, in the central area of the lesions, the cell response to viral invasion is not uniform. Most cells exhibited an acute hypersensitive reaction (HR) and underwent rapid and complete necrosis. However, some(More)
A comparative study was made of the ultrastructure of parenchyma leaf cells of different soybean varieties systemically infected with soybean mosaic virus (SMV). It has been shown that virus accumulation and formation of virus-specific cylindrical inclusions (CIs) occur in the infected cells, in addition to intracellular changes showing stimulation of lytic(More)
Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms are a well-recognized pathologic entity of the pancreas that is being reported with increasing frequency. These tumours carry a relatively favourable prognosis and are frequently associated with extrapancreatic malignancies. The combination of advanced age and co-existence of two neoplasms challenges the planning of(More)
