The nasopharyngeal lymphoid tissue (adenoids) is an uncommonly reported primary site for Hodgkin's disease. We report a case of primary adenoidal, interfollicular, epithelioid cell-rich variant of mixed cellularity Hodgkin's disease. The combination of an interfollicular pattern and richness of epithelioid histiocytes made it very difficult to make the diagnosis of ...

The confusing pathology of the proximal fifth metatarsal can make Iselin's disease difficult to distinguish from Jones', avulsion, or stress fractures, or os vesalianum. While lselin's disease appears to be rare due to the scarcity of cases in the medical literature, this may be due to misdiagnosis. The case report ...
