Uterine smooth muscle tumors and endometrial stromal tumors (ESTs) are the two major types of mesenchymal tumors of the uterus, the latter being fairly uncommon. Among these, endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) accounts for 0.2-1.5% of all uterine malignancies. Although routine histopathological examination is sufficient to distinguish between ESS and smooth(More)
BACKGROUND Gall bladder carcinoma accounts for 98% of all the gall bladder malignancies and it is the sixth most common malignancy of the gastrointestinal tract worldwide. The incidence of incidental gall bladder carcinoma which is diagnosed during or after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy is reported to be around 0.19-3.3% in the literature. AIM This study(More)
Renal leiomyomas are an extremely rare neoplasm which account for 1.5% of the benign lesions and 0.29% of all treated renal tumours, with autopsy evidence of 4.2% to 5.2%. Given their exceptional incidence, they are rarely included in the differential diagnosis of renal masses, despite their capacity to grow to a considerable size. The definitive diagnosis(More)
Primary intestinal lymphoma is a rare lymphoproliferative neoplasm of the small intestine. The primary nature is established on the basis of lack of evidence of lymphoma on chest X-ray, computerized tomographic scan, peripheral blood or bone marrow puncture. Tumor involvement is limited to the gastrointestinal tract, the criteria for inclusion are that the(More)
Glycation-induced high-density lipoprotein (HDL) modification by aldehydes can result in loss of its antiinflammatory/antioxidative properties, contributing to diabetes-associated cardiovascular diseases. Isoferulic acid, a major active ingredient of Cimicifuga heracleifolia, shows antiinflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and antidiabetic properties. Thus,(More)
Giant cell tumor (GCT) of the bone is a benign locally aggressive neoplasm which accounts for 3-8 % of all primary bone tumors. 60-70 % of the patients with giant cell tumor of the bone occur in the age group of 20-40 years. Patients older than 55 years of age very rarely develop GCT. Although many case series have been published on giant cell tumor of the(More)
OBJECTIVES Hematological changes are among the most common complications encountered in malaria. This study analyzes and statistically evaluates the hematological changes as a diagnostic test for malaria in patients with acute febrile illness and whether these could guide the physician to institute specific antimalarial treatment. METHODS The present(More)
Hydatid disease is a zoonosis caused by the tapeworm of Echinococcus spp. The disease is widely endemic in many sheep and cattle rearing locales. However, hydatidosis does not remain restricted to endemic geographical locales anymore but rather is a global health concern. It is a major public health burden causing significant morbidity and mortality.(More)
