Introduction: Current guidelines recommend the treatment for chronic kidney disease (CKD) incorporates the preference of a fully informed patient. The aims of this pilot study were to assess which treatment options new patients and their carers learnt about via their renal unit, and to test the survey instrument prior to ...

Comprehension of pre-dialysis education material is essential for the successful transition of patients to any dialysis programme. Our own observations suggested that the reading ability of many patients is below that required for comprehending printed healthcare material, highlighting that patient literacy levels (LL) should be considered when developing education materials. ...

Background: Quality of life (QoL) influences the morbidity and mortality in End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) patients on dialysis. Identification of the factors that influence QoL in patients receiving peritoneal dialysis can help in their management to improve the QoL and outcomes for these patients.

* Benign fibroblastic polyps of the colon are a recently described entity among mucosal polyps found in the colorectum. These polyps are typically discovered on routine screening colonoscopy within the distal colon. Benign fibroblastic polyps occur most commonly in adult women in the sixth decade of life. Histologically, benign fibroblastic ...

* Primary bone lymphomas are rare, even though secondary involvement of the bone marrow is a common event in systemic lymphomas. Most primary bone lymphomas are primary bone diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (PBDLBCLs) with a rare occurrence of follicular, marginal zone, anaplastic large cell, Hodgkin, and T-cell lymphomas. The PBDLBCL ...

* Dieulafoy disease is a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage (usually gastric) and an even rarer cause of colonic bleeding. There is a sudden onset of catastrophic bleeding in a previously healthy individual, which cannot be managed conservatively. Although this entity can be diagnosed and treated by endoscopy and ...

* Crystal-storing histiocytosis is a rare disorder that is typically associated with low-grade B-cell lymphomas and monoclonal gammopathy. We present a 64-year-old man with a prior history of weakness and weight loss and hematologic evaluation that had revealed immunoglobulin G [kappa] monoclonal light chains in the serum and negative bone ...

* Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (CRCC) is a distinct subtype of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) that is well known for its relatively good prognosis. Sarcomatoid transformation in this tumor, although rare, has been well documented in the literature and, as in other types of RCC, carries an ominous prognosis for ...

* Context.--p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling has been implicated in responses ranging from apoptosis to cell cycle, induction of expression of cytokine genes, and differentiation. This plethora of activators conveys the complexity of the p38 pathway. This complexity is further complicated by the observation that the downstream effects of ...

* Context.--Integrating anatomic pathology information--text and images--into electronic health care records is a key challenge for enhancing clinical information exchange between anatomic pathologists and clinicians. The aim of the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) international initiative is precisely to ensure interoperability of clinical information systems by using existing widespread industry ...

* Context.--Primary intraosseous squamous cell carcinoma is a rare form of squamous cell carcinoma, arising within the jaws.
Meyer, John - - 2009
* Context.--Mitotic figure counts are related to breast cancer behavior but have not been sufficiently reproducible to be accepted for clinical decision-making.
Kleer, Celina - - 2009
* This case presentation reviews the histologic distinction between pure medullary carcinoma and breast carcinomas with medullary-like features. This particular case prompts us to analyze the relationship among medullary carcinoma, basal-like breast carcinomas and carcinomas associated with germline BRCA1 mutations. In addition to now well-defined features, such as expression of ...

* Apocrine metaplasia is a ubiquitous component of the mammary fibrocystic change spectrum. Although mostly associated with cysts, apocrine metaplasia can also present as a proliferative lesion, rarely with cytologic atypism. Apocrine atypia is characterized by 3-fold nuclear enlargement, multiple nucleoli, and hyperchromatism and generally arises in florid adenosis or ...

* Context.--Since its description in 1966 by Donald Gleason, the Gleason grading has remained a cornerstone in the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. With widespread use of the prostate specific antigen screening, the diagnosis and management patterns of prostate cancers have dramatically changed. In addition, better understanding of the ...

Angiosarcoma, one of the least common sarcomas, has become increasingly important because of its association with radiation therapy, especially for breast cancer. Most are sporadic, presenting as cutaneous tumors in the scalp/ face of elderly patients. However, angiosarcoma has a wide anatomic distribution including soft tissue, visceral organ, and osseous ...

Human papillomavirus is an established cause of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma. Similar to cervical cancer, these cancers are usually caused by high-risk human papillomavirus types 16 and 18 and are associated with high-risk sexual behaviors. Human papillomavirus-associated oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma typically affects the palatine and lingual tonsils and frequently ...

Adenocarcinoma and dysplasias are recognized complications of Barrett mucosa. In the past, the treatment for this carcinoma was esophagectomy. However, new techniques, including endoscopic mucosal resection, sometimes replace esophagectomy and are becoming standard procedures in clinical practice, not just in major medical centers. Pathologists must learn to handle these specimens, ...

* We use a case-based format to review 4 relatively common, diagnostic challenges in surgical pathology of nonneoplastic lung diseases. All cases are linked to virtual slides so that the reader can participate in a manner that simulates the breakout session held at the 2008 New Frontiers in Pathology course ...
