BACKGROUND Molecular testing for oncogenic gene mutations and chromosomal rearrangements plays a growing role in the optimal management of thyroid nodules, yet lacks standardized testing modalities and systematic validation data. Our objective was to assess the performance of molecular cytology on preoperative thyroid nodule fine-needle aspirates (FNAs)(More)
Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs), also known as islet cell tumors, are mostly indolent neoplasms that probably arise from a network of endocrine cells that includes islet cells and pluripotent precursors in the pancreatic ductal epithelium. The incidence and prevalence of PNETs continue to rise in recent years because of more sensitive detection.(More)
Multidrug resistance among Salmonella typhi is well known. Reports of treatment failure in enteric fever with Ciprofloxacin made us undertake this study to determine the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of S. typhi and S. paratyphi A isolated from typhoid bacteremia cases, by disc diffusion and MIC by broth dilution method. A total of 50 strains were(More)
