Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, affecting approximately 147,000 people each year. Most colon cancers arise from benign neoplasms and evolve into adenocarcinomas through a stepwise histologic progression sequence that starts from adenomas or hyperplastic polyps/serrated adenomas. Genetic alterations and,(More)
The results of fine needle aspiration biopsy of lymph nodes in 350 patients and the modified biopsy technique used at our institution are discussed. Of the 350 cases, 209 aspirates were categorized as cytologically malignant, 102 as benign, 30 as suspicious for malignancy, and 9 as unsatisfactory. Cervical lymph nodes were most commonly sampled (58%), and(More)
BACKGROUND Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) or touch preparation with rapid assessment is a valuable diagnostic tool with a reported accuracy of diagnosis similar to intraoperative frozen section consultation. The Nigeria Christian Hospital partners with health care professionals from the United States to provide surgical care for rural residents of Aba,(More)
CONTEXT Leiomyosarcoma most commonly involves the female genital tract and occasionally arises within the retroperitoneum, abdominal cavity, or the soft tissues of the extremity. Presentation as a primary bone tumor is extraordinarily uncommon, potentially leading to misdiagnosis. The prognosis is traditionally thought to be dismal. However, this conclusion(More)
BACKGROUND Actinomycotic pelvic infection usually occurs in the presence of an intrauterine device. It can result in pelvic inflammatory disease, tubo-ovarian abscess, and retroperitoneal fibrosis. CASE A 35-year-old multipara who had never used an intrauterine device presented with a 5-month history of progressively worsening, colicky, right-sided(More)
The Digene Hybrid Capture 2 (hc2) high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA test (Digene, Gaithersburg, MD) is widely used for triage of women with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance. Results in a "retest zone" (weakly positive tests) are repeated up to 2 times according to the Digene-recommended algorithm. We studied 56 cervical samples in(More)
A total of 464 fine-needle aspiration biopsy specimens in 450 patients was studied. The majority of these aspirates were performed by the pathologist. The technic was 95% sensitive, 99.5% specific, and 97.0% accurate when correlated with histopathology or long-term follow-up. The complication rate was 0.9% and occurred only when needles larger than #22 were(More)
The cytologic, histologic, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural characteristics are presented of a case of hyaline-cell pleomorphic adenoma of the soft palate diagnosed by aspiration biopsy. Hyaline cells are commonly found in pleomorphic adenomas of minor salivary gland origin. The lack of cohesiveness of the hyaline cells makes them readily amenable to(More)
