Ultrastructural investigations were carried out on the cerebral neocortex in two cases of progressive supranuclear palsy. In both cases, characteristic 15-nm-wide straight tubules were observed in the neurons. The numbers of cells containing the straight tubules and of tubules in individual cells were small. However, the occurrence of the tubules ...

Tracheopathia osteochondroplastica (TPO) is a rare, but increasingly recognised condition in which there is accumulation of calcium phosphate with benign submucous proliferation of cartilage and bone beneath the tracheal mucosa, often with squamous metaplasia of the mucosal columnar epithelium. This condition is usually asymptomatic, but may be slowly progressive, causing ...

The clinicoradiologic and pathologic aspects of three cases of chondromyxoid fibroma of small size and predominant cortical location are reported. Because of these unusual features, the possibility of chondromyxoid fibroma was not considered on the basis of the radiographic pattern. The diagnosis was made after pathologic examination of the tissue, ...

Seven cases of recurring digital fibroma were seen over a 35-year period. All demonstrated the classical clinical, macroscopic, and microscopic features of this distinct tumour, including the pathognomonic round, eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusion bodies. Ultrastructurally, all seven cases were confirmed to be myofibroblastic in nature, and the morphology and intracellular topography ...

A father and his son were seen because of multiple wartlike lesions on their fingers and palms. On histologic examination, these lesions showed changes compatible with vascular fibromas, myxoid fibromas, and, in a few instances, verruca vulgaris. We are not aware of reports of similar cases in the dermatologic literature.
