Although it is often to be observed at the hand, localized form is very rare in the knee joint. In this case report, we aimed to present a very rare case of a surgically treated(More)
Altered expression of cell cycle regulatory proteins in GISTs (gastrointestinal stromal tumors) may be the mechanism for their diversity in clinical behavior. The use of these tumorigenetic and cell proliferative proteins may provide an alternative route for follow-up and treatment. The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic relevance of the E2F1(More)
