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)
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)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Tuberculosis (TB) continues to be a major health problem in developing countries like India. Abdominal TB is defined as an infection of the peritoneum, or hollow or solid abdominal organs with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb).

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)
Plasmacytoid carcinoma of the urinary bladder or plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma (PUC) is rare and only recently described a histological variant of transitional cell carcinoma. The morphological resemblance of PUC to other malignancies is a source of diagnostic dilemmas and often misdiagnosis. Immunohistochemistry plays a pivotal role in narrowing the(More)
Thrombocytosis is often an incidental finding seen in 35-50% of cases and the cause determination creates a diagnostic challenge. Extreme thrombocytosis is rare and seen in 2-5.8% patients only. Among the various causes of increased platelet count, surgical procedures have attracted much attention in both experimental and clinical domain. The appearance of(More)
Lymphomas are malignancies of the lymphoid tissues involving cells of the immune system. Primary systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) represents an aggressive lymphoma characterized by neoplastic proliferation of lymphoid cells with an anaplastic appearance. Large pleomorphic cells are "hallmark" cells with horseshoe-shaped or kidney-shaped nuclei(More)
Endometrial stromal sarcoma are rare malignant tumors of the uterus and has been described as the second most common malignant uterine mesenchymal tumor. The diagnosis is confirmed on hysterectomy for a presumed benign disease. In the latest World Health Organization (WHO) classification (2003), the term endometrial stromal tumor is applied to neoplasms(More)
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignant tumor of skin. The most common site (80%) is head and neck. BCC exhibits a varied morphology such as adenoid, keratotic, sebaceous, basosquamous, apocrine, eccrine or fibroepithelial. Tumors with a similar histopathological picture are cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma and primary cutaneous cribriform(More)
