We present the cytologic and histologic features of two cases of Penicillium marneffei (PM) infection occurring in human immunodeficiency virus-positive patients following a journey to endemic areas. PM closely resembles Histoplasma capsulatum, in both its morphology and tissue reactions. Distinctive histologic features and culture provide the definitive(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the cytological aspect of peritoneal washings in benign multicystic peritoneal mesothelioma (BMPM). METHODS Three peritoneal washing specimens stained by standard cytological and histological procedures and analysed by light microscopy. RESULTS The specimens showed an abundance of monomorphous mesothelial cells devoid of atypia or(More)
A term newborn presented with total right and partial left lung agenesis associated with total anomalous obstructed left pulmonary venous drainage. This unique association with a dramatic prognosis is thought to be due to a developmental insult early in the embryonic formation of the lung and its supporting vasculature.
Trophoblastic diseases are rare and complex. The Center for trophoblastic diseases, the first in Switzerland, was founded in Geneva in January 2009 to formalize the collaboration between obstetricians-gynecologists, pathologists, geneticists, radiologists and oncologists. At the physician's request and with patient consent, an integrative diagnosis is(More)
A case of endometrial herpex simplex virus infection with severe uterine post-partum bleeding is reported. Histopathologic analysis of curettage samples revealed endometrial necrosis and diffuse herpes-type nuclear inclusions in the glandular epithelial cells. Immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridisation, and electron microscopy confirmed the diagnosis.
A review of 82 fibroadenomas, collected over a period of 18 years, from female patients aged below 20 years, revealed 7 cases of cellular (juvenile) variant. The tumors are solitary, with an average diameter of 4 cm, these are characterized by a rich cellular stroma and a prominent glandular epithelium. Cellular fibroadenomas often pose to the pathologist(More)
An isolated pericardial effusion was observed during a routine prenatal ultrasound in a fetus of 30 and 3/7 weeks gestation. Amniocentesis was performed and revealed a trisomy 21. After prenatal counseling, the parents opted for termination of the pregnancy at 32 weeks. Postmortem examination confirmed the presence of a pericardial effusion, without(More)
OBJECTIVE Hydatidiform moles, subdivided into partial moles (PM) and complete moles (CM), are abnormal pregnancies with a disturbed invasive behavior. We had previously shown that MMP-2 and p53 proteins are overexpressed in CM versus PM, and that in primary cytotrophoblasts p53 protein is stabilized by complexing to the 78kDa glucose-regulated protein(More)
