UNLABELLED Finding the biomarker or biomarkers with high sensitivity and specificity in colorectal cancer, and thus a high diagnostic value will determine their clinical usefulness in clinical practice. An effective noninvasive blood test would be an ideal method to detect colorectal cancer. Discovered in 2007 a novel tumor marker CCSA-2 showes a promising(More)
One of the most important complications during thyroid surgery is injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) which leads to dysfunction and palsy of the vocal folds. Adequate knowledge about the location of the RLN supported by neuromonitoring can help the operating surgeon to prevent this complication. Visualisation of the nerve alone seems to not be(More)
Although thyroid carcinoma is more common in the adult population, the risk of a nodule being malignant is greater in children. The aim of our present investigation was to ascertain the percentage of malignancy in nodular goiter observed in patients from the Lower Silesia region in the last 12 years. The examination included 60 children (12 boys and 48(More)
During the past 10 years, we have treated 11 patients who were admitted with acute respiratory failure due to goiter. Multinodular goiter was examined in four patients, one patient suffered from Graves disease and six patients had malignant thyroid lesions. Four patients required emergency intubation and in two cases we performed tracheostomy because of(More)
Microsatellite instability (MSI) is a molecular landmark of mutations in DNA mismatch repair genes. The impaired efficiency of DNA repair mechanisms promotes carcinogenesis as well as contributes to tumour progression. Until now, only few studies on MSI in thyroid tumours have been published. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate MSI as(More)
Graves' Disease (GD) is an autoimmune disease with higher prevalence in women than in men. The aim of the study was to correlate the expression of estrogen (ER) and progesterone receptors (PR) as well as Ki- 67 cell proliferation index in thyroid sections of GD and nodular goiter (ND) patients. The study was performed on archival paraffin blocks of 77 GD(More)
Resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) syndrome is caused by mutations in THRB gene and is inherited mainly as an autosomal dominant trait with dominant negative effect. Most of up-to-now described RTH cases were heterozygous. We studied a 19-year-old woman presenting severe mental impairment, hyperkinetic behavior, learning disability, hearing loss,(More)
Brown tumors are rare skeletal manifestations of hyperparathyroidism (HPT) that may mimic cancer metastases. Histopathologically, they are difficult to differentiate from other giant cell lesions. A case is presented of 41-year-old woman with giant cell tumor in parieto-occipital region with injury of external bone lamina, growing into the skull cavity. The(More)
