Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a pseudosarcomatous lesion occurring in soft tissue and organs. It is known under a wide number of terms, such as inflammatory pseudotumor, plasma cell granuloma, pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferation. IMT is most commonly located in the lung, while laryngeal location is rarely described. Due to its(More)
Orofacial granulomatosis (OFG) is an uncommon disease, usually presenting as recurrent or persistent swelling of the soft tissues in the orofacial region, predominantly lips (cheilitis granulomatosa). The cause of this illness is unknown. OFG may also be part of the triad of Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) and some consider it a monosymptomatic form of(More)
Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of the larynx are rare and heterogenous group, with much confusion about nature and classification of these neoplasms in the past. Diagnosis is based primarily on light microscopy and confirmed by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy. A classification in 4 different types; paraganglioma, typical carcinoid, atypical(More)
Primary orbital liposarcoma is a very rare orbital tumor and dedifferentiation in the liposarcomas occurs rarely. Dedifferentiation is defined by development, in a well-differentiated tumor, of poorly differentiated, high-grade areas. The dedifferentiated liposarcomas (DDLS) have a better prognosis than pleomorphic sarcomas as a whole. The treatment of DDLS(More)
Thymoma is an uncommon neoplasm derived from thymic epithelium. It is located in the anterosuperior mediastinum. Thymoma may be associated with different types of additional primary malignancies; however, colorectal adenocarcinoma and thyroid cancer appear to be most common. A case is presented of a 63-year-old woman with type A thymoma and two other(More)
Differentiated thyroid carcinomas, particularly papillary carcinoma, are the tumors with good prognosis, but sometimes have a tendency to spread into the surrounding tissue. The spread of these tumors usually involves muscle, cartilage and upper aerodigestive tract. During two years (2008-2009) at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck(More)
A new polyclonal anti-EGF antibody, raised in rabbits against a fragment of the human EGF molecule was evaluated for its usefulness in immunohistochemistry. Various combinations of fixation, concentration, temperature, time and staining procedures were tested on rat submandibulary glands. The best results were obtained using 10% buffered or neutral formalin(More)
We present a case of parathyroid adenoma resulting in hypercalcemic crisis with lethal outcome and subsequential autopsy findings pointing out to long term hypercalcemia. A 51year-old female was admitted to hospital due to vomiting, constipation, general weakness, hypotension and uncorrectable hypokalemia. A couple of hours after the admission her general(More)
