We studied stability of sense of coherence (SOC) over time and in relation to the outcomes of former heroin addicts in MMT. Between September of 2003 and April of 2006, all 90 newly admitted patients to a MMT clinic in Tel Aviv were studied and followed up for one year. ...

Grover disease, also known as transient acantholytic dermatosis, is a papulovesicular rash of the upper trunk, generally among older white males; it is usually pruritic but temporary. Grover disease is characterized by 4 different acantholytic histologic patterns, and it has been associated with numerous disorders, including hematologic malignancies. Follow-up and ...

* Infiltrating syringomatous adenoma of the nipple is a rare neoplasm of the breast. Syringomatous adenoma of the nipple is often misdiagnosed because clinical examination and mammographic findings of syringomatous adenoma of the nipple mimic carcinoma. Despite its benign behavior, syringomatous adenoma of the nipple usually shows infiltrative expansile proliferation ...

Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney is a recently recognized distinct neoplasm that should be distinguished from other renal neoplasms. These tumors are relatively rare with a female preponderance. Imaging studies are not diagnostic but reveal a solid or solid and cystic mass in most cases. Histopathologically, these ...

* An association between intravascular large B-cell lymphoma (IVLBCL) and the mixed lineage leukemia (MLL) gene has never been demonstrated. Here, we report an IVLBCL in a 47-year-old Asian man. Morphologically, the atypical lymphoid infiltrate was entirely confined in the lumina of capillaries, small vessels, and sinusoidal space. Within the ...

* Primary mucinous cystic neoplasms are extraordinarily rare tumors of the kidney. Herein, we present a case of a 52-year-old man who presented with painless hematuria and mucusuria. The nephrectomy showed a markedly enlarged kidney replaced by a large cystic mass filled with mucin and with almost complete destruction of ...

The detailed cytomorphologic appearance of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in cancer patients is not well described, despite publication of multiple methods for enumerating these cells. In this case study, we present the cytomorphology of CTCs obtained from the blood of a woman with stage IIIB well-differentiated lung adenocarcinoma. Four years ...

Henrietta Lacks died in 1951 of an aggressive adenocarcinoma of the cervix. A tissue biopsy obtained for diagnostic evaluation yielded additional tissue for Dr George O. Gey's tissue culture laboratory at Johns Hopkins (Baltimore, Maryland). The cancer cells, now called HeLa cells, grew rapidly in cell culture and became the ...
Saxena, Anurag - - 2009
* Context.--Second-year medical students are introduced to many new terms and concepts in a short time frame in the hematology system and the neoplasia section of the undergraduate pathology course. It is a challenge to provide adequate practice and necessary repetition to reinforce key concepts.
Adelani, Muyibat - - 2009
* Context.--Leiomyosarcoma most commonly involves the female genital tract and occasionally arises within the retroperitoneum, abdominal cavity, or the soft tissues of the extremity. Presentation as a primary bone tumor is extraordinarily uncommon, potentially leading to misdiagnosis. The prognosis is traditionally thought to be dismal. However, this conclusion is largely ...
Shaz, Beth - - 2009
* Context.--Nationally, African Americans are underrepresented in community blood donation programs. To increase blood donation by African Americans, differences between motivators and barriers to blood donation between races should be investigated.
Lippi, Giuseppe - - 2009
* Context.--Despite remarkable progress, the diagnosis of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is still challenging.
Kanngum, Samommas - - 2009
* Context.--The pathologic protocol for sentinel lymph node evaluation has yet to be standardized. Results from previous studies are troublesome to compare because they have been conducted on different sets of subjects with cancer.
Lagwinski, Nikolaj - - 2009
* Context.--Recent changes in pathology residency education have included a decrease in the program length (from 5 years to 4 years for combined anatomic and clinical pathology training) and a national mandate for programs to assess 6 general competencies of trainees. These have undoubtedly led to changes in program curricula ...
Armah, Henry - - 2009
* Context.--Reflex human papillomavirus (HPV) testing has been designated in consensus guidelines as "preferred" for women with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASC-US) liquid-based cytology (LBC) results, and colposcopy is currently recommended for patients with HPV-positive ASC-US results. Data from large clinical practices using newer screening methods and current ...
Fuehrer, Neil - - 2009
* Context.--The mechanism of fibrosis is not clear in patients with obliterative bronchiolitis after a remote injury. Immune-mediated progression may be a reason. c-KIT (CD117)-positive mast cells have been associated with chronic fibrosing diseases and may potentially be treated with imatinib (Gleevec), a c-KIT blocker.
Gustavson, Mark - - 2009
* Context.--There is critical need for standardization of HER2 immunohistochemistry testing in the clinical laboratory setting. Recently, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the College of American Pathologists have submitted guidelines recommending that laboratories achieve 95% concordance between assays and observers for HER2 testing.
Coberly, Suzanne - - 2009
* Context.--RAAG12 is a primate-restricted N-linked carbohydrate antigen present on multiple membrane-associated proteins. RAAG12 is recognized by the RAV12 monoclonal antibody. RAV12 binds to RAAG12-expressing gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas, modifies growth factor-mediated signaling, induces oncotic cell death in vitro, and has antitumor activity toward gastrointestinal tumor xenografts.
Strom, Tobin - - 2009
* Context.--Peripheral nerve masses are frequently encountered in surgical pathology practice. However, once a peripheral nerve mass is determined not to be a nerve sheath neoplasm, differential diagnostic considerations drop off sharply.
Miranda, Roberto - - 2009
* Context.--Lymphomas involving the breast are rare, and most cases are of B-cell lineage; T-cell neoplasms represent less than 10% of all breast lymphomas.
Moriarty, Ann - - 2009
Context.--Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a common sexually transmitted disease that is decreasing in prevalence. Herpes simplex virus challenge cases have performed well in the educational College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Cervicovaginal Cytology. However, since gynecologic cytology proficiency testing (PT) was instituted, performance of HSV challenge cases ...
Turner, Matthew - - 2009
Context.--The proper classification of spindle cell neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract frequently requires the use of immunohistochemistry, as the histologic appearance of these lesions often overlaps.
