BackgroundLymphomas are common malignancies that have various subtypes with many overlapping histologic, immunophenotypic and genetic features. Therefore, discordance in classifying lymphoma among pathologists may be encountered. But this issue is not well characterized. We conducted the present study to demonstrate discordances among Thai hematopathologists as well as to highlight common ...

Arachnoid cysts are common, accounting for approximately 1% of intracranial mass lesions. Most are congenital, clinically silent, and remain static in size. Occasionally, they increase in size and produce symptoms due to mass effect or obstruction. The mechanism of enlargement of arachnoid cysts is controversial. One-way slit valves are often ...

Recent studies have definitively determined that flow cytometry (FC) is significantly more sensitive than cytomorphology (CM) in detection of hematolymphoid neoplasms (HLNs). However, its utility in paucicellular bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) specimens has not been established. FC was performed on BAL specimens submitted from 44 patients with a prior diagnosis of ...

Respiratory tract affectation is frequent in some types of vasculitis, fundamentally in those associated with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies. The clinical, radiological and histopathological presentation is also heterogeneous and conditions the evolution. It is therefore necessary to establish an early diagnosis based on the symptoms because, thanks to new treatments, and ...
