Spinal ossified meningiomas are extremely rare. This is a report of a study on a 15-year-old boy with thoracic spinal ossified meningioma. The meningioma was resected totally. Histopathological examination revealed a transitional meningioma (psammomatous+meningothelial). Immunohistochemically, Ki 67 antibody was applied but no positive staining was present.(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer incidence in women increases with age, while survival rates decrease. Studies interpret this result as meaning higher comorbidity, diagnosis at later stages of the disease, and less effective treatment in the elderly. The aim of this study is to evaluate the diagnosis and treatment characteristics of breast cancer and their effect(More)

ABStRACt Objective: In routine practice, axillary lymph node dissection is performed in early invasive breast cancer patients with positive sentinel node biopsy. However, sentinel node is the only involved axillary node in 40-70% of patients, and determining factors that predict axillary non-sentinel node involvement will therefore prevent unnecessary(More)
We report the rare case of a 43-year-old woman with a simultaneous meningioma of the sphenoid wing and an amyloid-containing prolactinoma. The patient, who presented with a 17-year history of amenorrhea, and galactorrhea, was found to have a 10-mm mass in the pituitary gland. During excision of this lesion, another mass was noticed, which was located in the(More)
BACKGROUND Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains as one of the most common lethal diseases in the world and therefore it is necessary to understand its effect on molecular basis. Genome-wide microarray analysis provides us to predict potential biomarkers and signaling pathways for this purpose. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to understand the(More)
Capillary hemangioblastomas are benign, highly vascular tumors of controversial origin limited almost exclusively to the central nervous system. These tumors make up about 1 to 2 percent of all intracranial neoplasms and occur primarily in the posterior fossa. Most commonly they develop in the cerebellum of male adults in the third through fifth decades of(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of this study is to research the contribution of radiothermometry (RTM) to the characterization of breast masses, the differentiation of malignant-benign masses and diagnosis of early stage breast cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS This prospective study comprised 182 cases of patients diagnosed with a breast mass and a control group of(More)
