This study compared the aetiology and pathological characteristics of adult and childhood adenoid hypertrophy (AH). Clinical and morphological features and accompanying otolaryngological pathologies were recorded in 40 adults and 23 children undergoing adenoidectomy for obstructive AH. Both AH forms were similar in terms of symptomatology and associated(More)
Objective. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether pentraxin 3 (PTX3) can be a new noninvasive marker for prediction of liver fibrosis in patients with NAFLD. We also aimed to evaluate the relationship between PTX3 and atherosclerosis in patients with NAFLD. Method. Fifty-four male patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD and 20 apparently healthy(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Fascin is an actin-bundling protein that is important in cell motility. Fascin expression has been shown to have a potential role in tumor progression for some epithelial tumors. However, there are only a few studies related to its expression in mesenchymal tumors. We investigated fascin expression in gastrointestinal stromal tumors. (More)
Muscular involvement in Behçet's disease is rare and there are only a few case reports in the literature. The causes of elevated muscle enzymes in a patient with Behcet's disease are many, including myositis, drug-induced myopathy, metabolic myopathy, and the disease itself. We herein have defined an algorithmic approach to a patient with Behcet's disease(More)
OBJECTIVE The differential diagnosis of kidney tumors, especially those with eosinophilic cytoplasms, can be problematic due to overlapping morphologic features. CD138 is primarily a plasma cell marker but is known to be expressed in the proximal renal tubular epithelium as well. This study aims to investigate the possible contribution of CD138 expression(More)
Parachordoma, first described by Laskowski in 1951, is a rare tumor of soft tissue. Few than 100 cases have been reported in the literature. In 1977 Dabska M. collected 10 cases of parachordoma and he described it as a slow growing, locally invasive tumor.1 Since then, metastatic cases have been described but they are also so rare. In this report, we(More)
AIM the aim of this study was to investigate the pathologic features, proliferation potential and expression of some anti-apoptotic and growth-promoting markers in adult medulloblastomas. METHOD we analyzed the immunohistochemical expression of survivin, c-KIT, Bcl-2, fascin, p-53 and Ki-67 in 18 adult medulloblastomas (> 16 years of age). RESULTS study(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. We aimed to research whether the levels of soluble P-selectin (sP-selectin) and soluble CD40 ligand (sCD40L), markers of endothelial function, are altered in subjects with NAFLD having no confounding factors for atherosclerosis. sCD40L, sP-selectin, and(More)
