Background. To develop a community-based model of stroke care, we assessed discharge planning of stroke patients, available resources and continuity of care between hospital and community in a remote rural setting in South Africa. We sought to determine outcomes, family participation and support needs, and implementation of secondary prevention strategies.

Aim. To investigate the profile of common uropathogens isolated from urine specimens submitted to the diagnostic microbiology laboratory at a tertiary teaching hospital and assess their antimicrobial susceptibility patterns to commonly used antimicrobial agents.

* Pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia is a relatively common lesion of the breast. In general, it is less commonly found as a clinically palpable mass and is more commonly found as incidental microscopic foci. It is a benign proliferative, probably neoplastic, hormonally driven process of the mammary stromal myofibroblasts. The clinical, ...

* Tumoral or nodular melanosis in the skin is considered a variation of completely regressed melanoma, presenting clinically as a suspicious pigmented papule or nodule. Microscopically, the lesion consists of a nodular accumulation of heavily pigmented melanophages in the dermis, staining positive for immunohistochemical markers of histiocytic lineage (CD68) and ...

* Context.--Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is an uncommon tumor that can be difficult to diagnose.
Fishbein, Gregory - - 2009
* Context.--Arteriosclerosis is the vascular disease that is the leading cause of mortality in industrialized countries. Currently, there are 3 lesions within the broader category of arteriosclerosis: atherosclerosis, Monckeberg medial calcific sclerosis, and arteriolosclerosis.
Lockyer, Jocelyn - - 2009
* Context.--There is increasing interest in ensuring that physicians demonstrate the full range of Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education competencies.
Meyer, Erin - - 2009
* Context.--Patient safety is of prime concern in every laboratory. Double labeling of glass slides is performed in many cytology laboratories where handwritten patient information on the frosted portion of the glass is overlaid with paper labels (sometimes containing bar codes). The cytotechnologists match this information by turning slides over. ...
Zaki, Maysaa El - - 2009
* Context.--Early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis is mandatory. Various markers are used to diagnose the condition.
Pozdnyakova, Olga - - 2009
* Context.--Our recent experience with a patient developing cutaneous metastases within 3 months of diagnosis of esophageal adenocarcinoma suggests that altered expression of the cellular adhesion molecules, E-cadherin and CD44v6, may have had a role to play in the rapid onset of metastases.
Kim, Kyungeun - - 2009
* Context.--The widespread use of the serum prostate-specific antigen test has increased the early detection of prostate cancer and consequently reduced grossly definable prostate cancers.
Moriarty, Ann - - 2009
* Context.--Candida may elicit cellular changes on otherwise negative screening Papanicolaou tests that may be misinterpreted as atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance. Although these changes have been correctly interpreted in the educational program of the College of American Pathologists, the Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Gynecologic Cytology, the performance of ...
Rootman, Jack - - 2009
* In our recent work to update the American Joint Committee on Cancer's AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, we brought the staging system in line with that of salivary gland malignancies to better describe the range of these tumors. In addition, we have suggested that information be collected on biomarkers and ...
Coupland, Sarah - - 2009
* Context.--The ocular adnexal lymphomas (OAL) arise in the conjunctiva, orbit, lacrimal gland, and eyelids. To date, they have been clinically staged using the Ann Arbor staging system, first designed for Hodgkin and later for nodal, non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The Ann Arbor system has several shortcomings, particularly when staging extranodal non-Hodgkin ...
Ainbinder, Darryl - - 2009
* Context.--The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and the International Union Against Cancer commissioned the Ophthalmic Oncology Task Force to modify and update the ophthalmic chapters of the 7th edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual.
Mehta, Manisha - - 2009
* Progressive sclerosing orbital pseudotumors are a subset of usually primary and localized idiopathic fibroinflammatory disorders. We report on a 66-year-old man who developed this condition along the facial tissue planes with extension into the orbit and preferential involvement of the periorbital membrane. Fibrocollagenous tissue with scattered lymphoid aggregates without ...
Manderwad, Guru - - 2009
* Context.--Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) represents a spectrum of ocular surface tumors ranging from intraepithelial to invasive. The genesis of OSSN is multifactorial, possibly including human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, the role of which is controversial.
Houston, S.K. - - 2009
* Massive retinal gliosis (MRG) is a rare, benign intraocular condition that may develop in association with long-standing eye conditions including chronic inflammation, vascular disorders, glaucoma, trauma, or congenital abnormalities. It is thought to represent a nonneoplastic reactive tissue response to retinal injury. Here, we describe an unusual case of ...
Yu, Le - - 2009
* Epstein-Barr virus infection has been linked to the development of smooth muscle tumors in immunocompromised patients with organ transplants and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. A 52-year-old female recipient of a renal transplant presented with enlarging masses of the left iris. Incisional biopsy of the mass revealed a smooth muscle tumor ...
Raparia, Kirtee - - 2009
* Context.--Diagnosis and classification of primary intraocular lymphoma can be challenging because of the sparse cellularity of the vitreous specimens.
Faia, Lisa - - 2009
* Primary intraocular lymphoma, recently suggested to be renamed primary retinal lymphoma, is a subset of primary central nervous system lymphoma and is usually an aggressive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Between 56% and 85% of patients who initially present with primary intraocular lymphoma alone will develop cerebral lesions. Patients typically ...

* Context.--Several studies have evaluated clinical, histopathologic, cytogenetic, and molecular prognostic variables in uveal melanoma. However, it is not known whether the primary tumor cells maintain these aggressive attributes at the metastatic sites.
Schoenfield, Lynn - - 2009
* Context.--Determining the most significant prognostic variables in uveal melanoma is important for stratifying-patients for metastasis surveillance and possible initiation of chemotherapy or immunotherapy. Monosomy 3, one such variable, can be determined using fluorescence in situ hybridization, either on enucleated samples, fine-needle aspiration biopsy, or tumor sample obtained by vitrector.
Crosby, Michelle - - 2009
* Retinoblastoma is the most common primary intraocular tumor of childhood and may be heritable or occur sporadically. Anterior diffuse retinoblastoma is an uncommon variant that is thought to be sporadic. We describe a child with anterior diffuse retinoblastoma who presented with a pseudohypopyon. Genetic analysis showed a germline mutation ...
Gupta, Roshmi - - 2009
* Context.--The presence of histopathologic risk factors is associated with development of metastasis in a patient with retinoblastoma. Adjuvant chemotherapy administered to such patients decreases the risk of metastasis.
Eagle, Ralph C., - - 2009
* Context.--Certain histopathologic risk factors in enucleated eyes are important indicators for adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with retinoblastoma.
Sastre, Xavier - - 2009
* Retinoblastoma is the most common intraocular malignant childhood tumor in need of prospective clinical trials to address important unanswered questions about biology, treatment, and prognostic factors. Currently, there is controversy about the definitions for choroidal invasion and an inconsistency in the handling of eyes with retinoblastoma. The International Retinoblastoma ...
