Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) tests are used to diagnose and monitor inflammatory activity in the primary systemic small vessel vasculitides. ANCA is best demonstrated in these diseases by using a combination of indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) of normal peripheral blood neutrophils and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) that detect(More)
AIM To describe the neutrophil fluorescent patterns produced by antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) with different antigen specificities, and by other auto- and alloantibodies. BACKGROUND Most sera from patients with active generalised Wegener's granulomatosis result in diffusely granular cytoplasmic neutrophil fluorescence with internuclear(More)
In the Bering Sea and northwestern Pacific Ocean all species of phocid seals feed on walleye pollock. Pollock has been one of the most important foods of harbor seals sampled at the Pribilof Islands, in Bristol Bay, and in the eastern Aleutian Islands. Ice-associated seals, particularly spotted and ribbon seals, feed on pollack in the winter and spring when(More)
We describe the third report testosterone-producing, virilizing, adrenal Leydig cell adenoma, which was identified in a oophorectomized postmenopausal female patient. Light- and electron-microscopy demonstrated typical Leydig cell differentiation, including numerous intracytoplasmic and intranuclear Reinke crystals and rice-like bodies (elementary tubular(More)
BACKGROUND Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) have been used as a diagnostic marker for systemic necrotising vasculitis, a disease classification which includes Wegener granulomatosis, microscopic and classic polyarteritis nodosa, and Churg Strauss disease. OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic value of the two methods for detecting these(More)
Consensus guidelines on anti-beta 2 glycoprotein I (anti-beta2GPI) testing have been developed to help minimise laboratory variation in the performance and reporting of assays for these antibodies. These guidelines include minimum and optional recommendations for the following aspects of anti-beta2GPI testing and reporting: (1) isotype of anti-beta2GPI(More)
Intrahepatic calcification occurring in a branching pattern with a periportal distribution has not previously been described in hepatic metastases. We report a patient with a unique branching pattern of calcified hepatic metastases. There were no low density masses associated with the calcifications as is usually seen in calcified metastases to the liver(More)
The osteoclastic giant cell tumor of the pancreas is a rare primary neoplasm that by light and electron microscopy mimics giant cell tumor of bone. In the proper clinical setting, this lesion can be diagnosed by fine needle aspiration. Review of 10 cases reveals a female predominance, a median survival of 12 months, and a tendency for local invasion, rather(More)
