Female urethral diverticulum is an uncommon pathologic entity and can manifest with a variety of symptoms involving the lower urinary tract. Selection of the appropriate imaging modality is critical in establishing the diagnosis. Urethrography has traditionally been used in the evaluation of urethral diverticulum but provides only intraluminal information.(More)
OBJECTIVES Cyclins and cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) complexes have important regulatory roles during cell cycle progression and can be used as prognostic markers in various kinds of malignant tumors. This study investigated the expression of proliferative cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), p53, Rb, p27(kip1), and cyclin D1 by immunostains in bladder tumors,(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the relationship of the immunohistochemical expression status of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), catalase, glutathione peroxidase (GPx), and myeloperoxidase (MPO) in buccal mucosal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with clinicopathologic parameters and prognosis. METHODS The expression status of MnSOD, GPx, catalase, and MPO(More)
BACKGROUND OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG are major transcription factors related to stem cell self-renewal and differentiation. The aim of this study was to examine the association of OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG expression levels with the development and prognosis of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Expression levels of OCT4,(More)
DNA methylation at the 5 position of cytosine (5 mC) is an epigenetic hallmark in cancer. The 5 mC can be converted to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5 hmC) through a ten-eleven-translocation (TET). We investigated the impact of 5 mC, 5 hmC, TET1, and TET2 on tumorigenesis and prognosis of breast cancer. Immunohistochemistry was used to assess the levels of 5 mC,(More)
BACKGROUNDS Oral cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death for males and the top cancer in young adult males in Taiwan. Tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) is a common oral cancer and generally associated with poor prognosis. Global DNA hypomethylation at the 5 position of cytosine (5mC) is a well-known epigenetic feature of cancer. Therefore, the(More)
Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of bone (PLB) is a rare disorder representing less than 1% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and has rarely been reported in Taiwan. A retrospective clinicopathological study was performed according to the 2002 World Health Organization criteria and identified 14 cases during a 13-year period in 2 medical centers in southern(More)
Acute perforated appendicitis is a very rare initial presentation of appendiceal lymphoma. A case of primary lymphoma of the appendix in a 42-year-old female is reported here. The symptom was pain in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. Surgical intervention was performed under clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Grossly, the resected appendix was(More)
PURPOSE To study the genetics and functional alteration of a family with X-linked lissencephaly and subcortical band heterotopia. METHODS Five affected patients (one male with lissencephaly, four female with subcortical band heterotopia) and their relatives were studied. Sanger sequencing of DCX gene, allele specific PCR and molecular inversion probe(More)
Antithyroid antibodies (Abs) are associated with epilepsy in steroid-responsive encephalopathy, but have been rarely studied in unselected epilepsy patients. This study aimed to characterize the prevalence and associated factors of antithyroid Abs and other auto-Abs in adult patients with epilepsy.Epilepsy patients without autoimmune disorders were surveyed(More)
