We evaluated the expression of Hep Par 1 (hepatocyte paraffin 1 monoclonal antibody) in 42 hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs), 25 cholangiocarcinomas, 18 tumors metastatic to the liver, and 87 primary extrahepatic tumors. Albumin in situ hybridization (ISH) was performed in the HCC cases. Of 42 cases of HCC, 39 (93%) were positive for Hep Par 1. All cases of(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal-dominant disorder characterized by mental retardation, seizures, and central nervous system and visceral hamartomas. Pulmonary involvement manifesting as lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) occurs in 1% of patients (all women) with TSC. Micronodular pneumocyte hyperplasia also has been described as a rare(More)
Metanephric adenoma (MA) is a renal tumor that is generally detected in adults and occasionally in children. These tumors usually behave in a benign fashion. Although the histogenesis of MA is unclear, a morphologic similarity to Wilms' tumor (WT) complex exists. Six cases of MA, five cases of childhood WT (CWT), two cases of adult WT (AWT), and four cases(More)
Mesonephric remnants in the prostate are an unusual mimic of adenocarcinoma with unknown incidence. This condition is considered benign, similar to its counterpart in the female genital tract, but there have only been six cases reported to date, so the histologic spectrum of this finding is uncertain. To determine the incidence and comparative(More)
An approach to soft tissue management and surgical crown/root sectioning for submucosal vital root retention has been presented. Attention to detail during soft tissue reflection, tooth sectioning, and the relaxing of attached mucogingival tissues is very important. Adequate healthy soft tissue is necessary for proper suturing over the retained roots.(More)
Diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) is a relatively nonspecific pattern of acute lung injury that can be observed in a wide range of clinical circumstances. DAD has often been recognized in association with various connective tissue diseases; however, to our knowledge, it has not been previously reported in the setting of progressive systemic sclerosis. Herein we(More)
