Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) with chromosomal translocation (6;9)(p23;q34) is a rare disease with poor prognosis and distinct clinical and morphologic features. t(6;9) results in a chimeric fusion gene between DEK (6p23) and CAN/NUP214 (9q34). FLT3-ITD mutation is one of the most frequent mutations in AML and correlates with poor clinical ...

Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is an uncommon extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Its incidence has increased during the last 3 decades and has been reported in both immunocompromised and immunocompetent patients. Immunocompromised patients are affected at a younger age compared with immunocompetent patients. It presents with raised intracranial pressure and ...

In this report, we describe a 36-year-old man with the synchronous occurrence of multiple gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors and multiple intestinal lipomas. Multiple, small, and well-circumscribed gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumors (3 mm to 2 cm) were present within the gastrectomy specimen. The gastrointestinal stromal tumors were composed of epithelioid cells ...

Neuroendocrine carcinomas of the endometrium are rare tumors that can be pure, combined with endometrioid adenocarcinoma, or a component of malignant mixed muilerian tumor. Recently, a case of combined small cell carcinoma and papillary serous carcinoma of the endometrium was described for the first time. We report the first case, ...

* Context.--Myofibroblastoma (MFB) of the breast is an unusual benign tumor that belongs to the family of the "benign spindle cell tumors of the mammary stroma. "The name MFB reflects its cellular composition, comprising mainly stromal cells with fibromyofibroblastic and, less frequently, myoid differentiation. Since the original description, the morphologic ...

* Context.--5-Lipoxygenase (5-LO) is an arachidonic acidmetabolizing enzyme, which has been demonstrated to exert a role in colorectal cancer tumorigenesis. Its activity in promoting neoangiogenesis in colorectal malignancies has been also recently theorized on the basis of in vitro studies.
Friebe, Astrid - - 2008
* Context.--Tumor necrosis factor a, interleukin 6, and interleukin 8 serum/plasma levels are frequently used for the monitoring of patients with systemic immune activation/ sepsis. This requires comparability of test results over time. However, cytokines are usually not considered to be very stable after blood collection, which might artificially interfere ...
Xuan, Qiang - - 2008
* Context.--Kallikreins are a subgroup of serine proteases with diverse physiologic functions. It has been confirmed that kallikrein 7 (KLK7) is differentially expressed in ovarian and breast cancer. Antileukoprotease (ALP) has been shown to be a specific inhibitor of human kallikrein 7 (hK7). Antileukoprotease overexpression is commonly associated with aggressive, ...
Goodyear, Nancy - - 2008
* Context.--Daily supervisory review is a common practice in microbiology laboratories; however, there are no publications describing errors corrected by this practice.
Plesec, Thomas - - 2008
* Context.--Ciliary dyskinesia is a rare, but significant, cause of chronic respiratory infections, and transmission electron microscopy is a critical adjunct to making the diagnosis.
Lo, Stanley - - 2008
* Context.--In 2003 the Chemistry Resource Committee of the College of American Pathologists introduced a commutable specimen in the Neonatal Bilirubin Surveys. This specimen was intended to help evaluate all bilirubin methods.
Roden, Anja - - 2008
* Context.--In comparison to [alpha][beta] T cells, little is known about the immunophenotype of healthy peripheral blood [gamma][delta] T cells or about conditions associated with expansion of this usually minor T-cell subset.
Etit, Demet - - 2008
* Context.--Prophylactic thyroidectomies are increasingly performed on patients at risk for developing medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC); consequently, pathologists are more commonly encountering these specimens in routine practice.
Guzman, Grace - - 2008
* Context.--Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is recognized as a complication of cirrhosis related to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Diabetes and the metabolic syndrome are also associated with HCC. However, it is not clear whether NAFLD predisposes patients to HCC in the absence of cirrhosis.
Seidman, Jeffrey - - 2008
* Context.--The origin of and relationship between ovarian mucinous and transitional cell (Brenner) neoplasms are enigmatic. The reported association ranges from 1% to 16%, and whether there is an association with Walthard cell nests is unknown.
Gustavson, Mark - - 2008
* Context.--Increased thymidylate synthase expression is a marker for decreased survival in colorectal cancer.
Tritipsombut, Jaruwan - - 2008
* Context.--Thalassemia and hemoglobinopathies are major public health problems worldwide. To establish a costeffective screening tool for newborns in regions where the incidence of these disorders is significant, study of the hemoglobin and hematologic features of normal and thalassemic newborns is necessary.
Ogawa, Fumihiro - - 2008
* Context.--Selective internal radiation (SIR) therapy (SIRT) with yttrium 90 microspheres is increasingly used as an alternative therapeutic modality for patients with inoperable liver tumors. During administration of microspheres via the hepatic artery branches, some may on occasion be misdirected and be caught in the capillary bed of the duodenal ...
Hossain, Deloar - - 2008
* Context.--Prostatic stromal hyperplasia with atypia is a rare lesion that can be mistaken for sarcoma because of the presence of atypical, bizarre, degenerative myocyte nuclei.
Wang, Hanlin - - 2008
* Context.--Histopathologic distinction between hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and benign hepatocellular mass lesions, particularly hepatocellular adenoma, can sometimes be challenging. The currently available ancillary tools are suboptimal in terms of sensitivity and specificity.
Nakhleh, Raouf - - 2008
* Context.--There are multiple elements that can be measured to assess the quality of a surgical pathology laboratory. Overall customer satisfaction is an excellent "global" measure, because it highlights the unique insight of laboratory performance from the users' perspective.
Moriarty, Ann - - 2008
* Context.--Newer liquid-based preparations differ morphologically from classic preparations (smears, filters, and cytocentrifuged preparations). Is adenocarcinoma more readily detected in liquid-based preparations? We reviewed responses from 16 750 fluid challenges of adenocarcinoma distributed in 2005 in the College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Nongynecologic Cytology (CAP NGC).
