BACKGROUND: Differential diagnosis between diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and follicular lymphoma (FL) becomes a challenge when adequate biopsy is unavailable. The present study aimed to investigate the applicability of DNA cell cycle analysis by flow cytometry (FC) for differentiating between CD10(+) DLBCL and FL. METHODS: Data were collected from 57 specimens where CD5(-) /CD10(+) /light chain restricted B cells were detected. DNA staining was performed using the Coulter DNA Prep Kit. C...

Thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms and dissection often develop in hypertensive elderly patients. At higher risk are smokers and those who have a family history of aortic aneurysms. In most affected families, the aortic aneurysms and dissection is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner with decreased penetrance and variable expressivity. Mutations at two chromosomal loci, TAA1 at 11q23 and the TAA2 at 5q13–14, and eight genes, MYLK, MYH11, TGFBR2, TGFBR1, ACTA2, SMAD3, TGFB2, and MAT2A, ...

Introduction: Hemorrhagic malignant pleural effusion (HMPE) is diagnosed in 47-50% of all malignant pleural effusions (MPE). Objectives: To evaluate clinical, radiological, and morphological manifestations of HMPE and results of talc pleurodesis treatment. Material and methods: Retrospective review of the medical charts of 135 MPE patients. HMPE group-42 patients, simple MPE group-63 patients; median age 67.9y, 43 males, 62 females. Results: Pronounced dyspnea (HMPE vs. simple MPE; 100% vs. 88.9...
Introduction: Today, mediastinal lymphadenopathy (MLAP) is increasingly detected and diagnosed owing to major technological advances. Nevertheless, efficacy of clinical-radiological methods has not yet been evaluated properly in comparison with cervical mediastinoscopy, considered the gold standard method for diagnosis of MLAP. Objectives: To evaluate diagnostic abilities of modern clinical –radiological methods in comparison with mediastinoscopy in patients with MLAP. Methods: A retrospective r...

Systemic amyloidosis frequently involves the small intestine. However, its association with diverticular disease has been seldom reported to date. To draw attention to this rare but potentially harmful association, we herein present an additional case of small bowel diverticular disease associated with amyloidosis.

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a ubiquitous neoplasm that arises most commonly from the pleura. SFT arising within lung parenchyma (intrapulmonary SFT) has been rarely reported and is therefore not well recognized. We present a clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical study of 24 cases of primary

Methods The authors performed neurological and developmental examinations on the affected individuals. The authors conducted whole genome linkage and haplotype analyses, followed by sequencing of candidate genes; RNA and protein expression studies; and finally p...
