MATERIALS AND METHODS Spontaneously produced fresh sputum was analyzed in 36 clinically suspected cases of lung cancer. It was(More)
Background: Enteric duplication cyst is a rare congenital anomaly. It can occur anywhere along the alimentary tract from the tongue to the anus, more common in ileum but rare in the caecum. They may be tubular or cystic and most of them are located in the mesentery. Case History: A rare case of duplication cyst of the cae-cum in seven months old female(More)
Pure ovarian choriocarcinoma is extremely rare and can develop as a germ cell tumor or as a metastasis from uterine or tubal gestational choriocarcinoma or rarely from an ovarian pregnancy. The cytomorphologic findings have been reported previously in different sites. However, this is the first case of pure ovarian choriocarcinoma diagnosed on cytology to(More)
Paragangliomas or chemodectomas are neoplasms that arise from neural crest cells and histologically resemble their adrenal counterpart, the pheochromocytoma. Seventy-one percent of the extra-adrenal paragangliomas are located in the superior or inferior para-aortic area. This tumor usually presents as an abdominal mass producing back pain. Tumor(More)
We report a case of cutaneous angiomyolipoma (AML) found on the anterior abdominal wall of a 3-year-old female child. Histologic examination showed a well-circumscribed nodule in the dermis composed of an intimate mixture of convoluted thick-walled blood vessels, smooth muscle, and mature fat. This lesion differs from renal AML in terms of a lack of(More)
Absence of antimuellerian hormone or defective functioning of antimullerian hormone type II receptors give rise to a type of male pseudohermaphroditism known as 'persistent muellerian duct syndrome'. Such patients are phenotypically male with 46 XY karyotype and well developed muellerian duct derivatives which may be intra-abdominal or may herniate in(More)
CONTEXT The salivary glands are the site of origin of a wide variety of neoplasms and are also relatively uncommon. The histopathology of these tumors is said to be the most complex and diverse of any organ in the body. The incidence of salivary gland tumors (SGTs) is claimed to be influenced by geographical and racial factors. Histopathological diagnosis(More)
Primary oral malignant melanomas are rare with an incidence of .2 to 8% of all melanomas. Less than 1% of them arise on buccal mucosa. Grossly they arise as a black macule with irregular borders & are commonly of mucosal lentiginous type. They appear at a higher stage and are aggressive with a 5 yr survival rate of 10-25%. 39% of metastasis in thyroid occur(More)
We report a case of cutaneous swelling found on the left anterior axillary fold of a 41-year-old man. Gross examination of specimen excised from the dermis showed a well-circumscribed nodule histologically composed of spindle cells with interspersed ganglion cell like cells. On hematoxylin and eosine (H and E) staining it was diagnosed as ganglioneuroma.(More)
Neu-Laxova syndrome is a rare lethal congenital disorder involving multiple systems. Intrauterine growth retardation, ichthyosis, microcephaly, abnormal facial findings and limb contractures are its key features. We present a stillborn female baby of 1.5 kg with characteristic features including growth retardation, microcephaly, severe ectropion,(More)
