Recently, various studies have shown that insulin-like growth factor II messenger RNA-binding protein-3 (IMP3) is a useful diagnostic marker for malignant lesions and a prognostic marker for poor survival in several kinds of tumors. However, the value of IMP3 as a diagnostic and prognostic marker in intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm ...

Steatocystoma multiplex (SM) is a hamartomatous malformation of the pilosebaceous duct consisting of dermal cysts filled with a sebum-like material. SM lesions are typically located in areas with sebaceous follicles, although atypical presentations involving sites lacking sebaceous follicles have exceptionally been described. We reviewed retrospectively a series of 32 histologically ...

EUS-guided liver biopsy by Trucut yields variable specimen adequacy at high cost, limiting its utility. A modified EUS-guided technique with reliable adequacy could be a viable alternative to standard techniques in cost-effective clinical settings. To describe our experience with EUS-guided liver biopsy by 19-gauge FNA, non-Trucut, needle in a cost-effective ...

BACKGROUND: Indocyanine green (ICG), an agent for measuring liver function, becomes fluorescent under near-infrared (NIR) light after binding to serum proteins. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with a deposit of preoperatively administered ICG becomes clearly detectable under ICG fluorography; however, it remains unclear whether this detection method is always reliable. This case ...

Recent years have seen a dramatic change in the pathological approach to ovarian mucinous neoplasms. A substantial proportion of tumours previously considered to be ovarian primaries actually represent secondary ovarian involvement by tumours elsewhere in the body. Two major categories of tumour have completely disappeared from the diagnostic spectrum: ovarian ...

There is considerable overlap in morphologic features in well-differentiated hepatocellular lesions necessitating the use of immunohistochemistry and other techniques for diagnosis. Map-like pattern with glutamine synthetase in focal nodular hyperplasia and cytoplasmic staining with serum amyloid associated protein in inflammatory hepatocellular adenoma (HA) are useful for this distinction. The distinction ...

Hydatid cyst disease remains a considerable public health problem, especially in pastoral and farming regions. Although the spleen is the third most commonly affected organ after the liver and lungs, splenic hydatid cyst is an uncommon entity even in areas that are endemic for echinococcosis. The recurrence rate after surgical ...

Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is a rare benign disorder of unknown pathogenesis, usually a self-limited condition. Extracutaneous systematic involvement is infrequent. We report one of the few documented cases of congenital systemic JXG, presenting with fever, jaundice, hepatosplenomegaly, ascites, pancytopenia, and delayed skin involvement. Liver biopsy established the diagnosis and JXG ...
