Heterotopic ossification is rarely seen after midline abdominal surgery. The etiology of heterotopic ossification is unknown. Although it is well recognized that heterotopic ossification may contain osteogenic cells and/or hematopoietic cells, to our knowledge, no case has ever been reported to have histologic evidence of hematopoiesis. We report the occurrence ...

Signet-ring cell change (SCC) is a nonneoplastic condition that morphologically simulates signet-ring cell carcinoma (SRCA). The few case reports on SCC have focused on morphologic characteristics in distinguishing benign from malignant. In biopsy specimens, however, SCC can be easily confused with SRCA, which often demonstrates innocuous cytologic features. The object ...

Hepatoid adenocarcinoma of the stomach is a highly malignant neoplasm. Most gastric hepatoid adenocarcinomas coexist with tubular adenocarcinoma. However, the relationship between hepatoid adenocarcinoma and tubular adenocarcinoma is still unclear. In the present study, the characteristics of the coexistent tubular adenocarcinomas were determined by examining their profiles of mucin production. ...
