Adenomyoepithelial adenosis of the breast is a form of adenosis not previously described. It is similar in several ways to microglandular adenosis, but one significant difference is the presence of myoepithelial cells. The present case originated as adenomyoepithelial adenosis in a 46-year-old woman. In the course of 18 years it proliferated and changed(More)
A case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the lung is reported. The tumour margin was well circumscribed, showing an expanding border and no capsule. The main part of the tumour was composed of spindle-shaped fibroblast-like cells arranged in broad fascicles with a partially storiform pattern. Other parts of the tumour were arranged in a haphazard(More)

Objective: It has been estimated that alcohol drinking increases the risk of breast cancer in women by approximately 7% for each increment of 10 g alcohol per day. However, the few studies conducted on breast cancer among men have failed to detect an association with quantitative measures of alcohol drinking, even if the alcohol intake is generally higher(More)
A case of simultaneous presentation of a small-cell carcinoma involving the ovary and the uterine endometrium is reported. We consider the endometrium as the primary localization of the tumor. The epithelial origin and neuroendocrine differentiation were confirmed by electron microscopy. Tumor cells were attached by small desmosomes, and in the cytoplasm(More)
A description is given of acute fatty liver of pregnancy in a 26-year-old primigravida who survived. Complicating disseminated intravascular coagulation was diagnosed at parturition, and the importance of early diagnosis of this is emphasized. A suggestion for treatment is given as a possible means of improving the prognosis in this mostly fatal disease.
Titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4), an intermediate compound in the production of white pigment, can cause severe burns. Two cases are reported in which TiCl4 created 18% to 20% total body surface area burns. These full-thickness injuries were the combined consequence of hydrochloric acid and the heat that was generated in areas where this otherwise stable(More)
Nitric oxide is produced by various cell types and can initiate either beneficial or deleterious effects. Because cultured human keratinocytes express an inducible isoform of nitric oxide synthase, it was postulated that keratinocytes within a burn wound would express increased levels of inducible nitric oxide synthase following the injury.(More)
Deep mechanical massage has been advocated as an alternative or adjunctive therapy for the contouring of subcutaneous fat and as a treatment for cellulite. We evaluated the effects of deep mechanical massage using two pig models. Yucatan pigs were divided into three groups (n = 4). One side of each body received 4, 10, or 20 treatments and the other side(More)
