To study of estimation of time since death by Pilocarpine eye dropping....Continue reading →

The accuracy of MUC5AC, CEA and vimentin expressions in the differentiation of endocervical and endometrial adenocarcinoma

Endocervical adenocarcinoma (ECA) and endometrial adenocarcinoma (EMA) have differences in etiologies, behavior and treatments. It needs to preoperative distinguish between these two tumors because of the overlapping morphological features....Continue reading →

Soft tissue vascular malformations differentiating flow types by MR imaging and comparison with histopathology

To evaluate the MR imaging features of pathologically diagnosed high and low flow vascular malformations....Continue reading →

Similar expression of cytokeratin (CK7+/CK20+), Her-2, P53 and CA 125 in intrahepatic and extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: an immunohistochemical study

To evaluate cytokeratin CK7+/CK20+ and common oncogene, tumor suppressor gene and tumor marker in intrahepatic and extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. In 2009, the American Joint Committee on Cancer regrouped extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (EH-CCA) by placing hilar...Continue reading →

Impact of Quality and Quantity of DNA samples on KRAS Mutation Analysis

Many techniques based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) have been utilized to detect KRAS mutation, a negative predictor of anti-EGFR treatment efficacy. Inaccurate mutation test can result from inefficient PCR amplification in poor quality DNA due to formalin-induced DNA degradation or the presence of PCR inhibitors....Continue reading →

Hepatitis B Virus infection is not a risk factor in liver fluke-associated cholangiocarcinoma – a comparative study of P53 mutation between groups with Opisthorchis viverrini and HBV infection

To investigation the role of HBV infection as a risk factor in liver fluke-associated cholangiocar-cinoma In Northeast (NE) Thailand, people are exposed to numerous risk factors for cholangiocarcinoma, such as: infestation with the liver fluke, Opisthorchis vivenini, hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis c virus (HCV) infection, and nitrosamine...Continue reading →

GLUT1 expression in non-Hodgkin lymphoma diffuse large B-cell lymphoma clinical and International Prognostic Index analysis

High levels of glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) expression are correlated with aggressiveness and poor outcomes in many malignancies. There were few studies of this correlation in non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and have heterogeneity in clinical outcomes....Continue reading →

Comparison of α-SMA expression between squamous cell carcinoma and pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia

The differentiation between invasive squamous cell carcinoma and reactive benign squamous proliferation has caused difficulties in general routine practice of pathology. Among several pathologic changes, desmoplastic reaction which represents myofibroblastic cell proliferation is one indicator for invasiveness of the cancer cells....Continue reading →

The accuracy of MUC5AC, CEA and vimentin expressions in the differentiation of endocervical and endometrial adenocarcinoma

Endocervical adenocarcinoma (ECA) and endometrial adenocarcinoma (EMA) have differences in etiologies, behavior and treatments. It needs to preoperative distinguish between these two tumors because of the overlapping morphological features....Continue reading →

Non-functioning adrenal cortical adenoma arising in adrenohepatic fusion, mimicking hepatocellular carcinoma – a case report

Adrenal cortical adenoma arising in adrenohepatic fusion is an exceedingly rare occurrence. It can potentially be misinterpreted as hepatocellular carcinoma as they share radiologic and histologic similarities. We report an incidental subcapsular adrenal cortical adenoma arising in adrenohepatic fusion tissue in segment 7 of the liver...Continue reading →

Mantle cell lymphoma presenting as multiple lymphomatous polyposis of colon: A case report.

Mantle cell lymphoma is a clinically aggressive lymphoma with a poor prognosis. Secondary involvement of gastrointestinal tract by this neoplasm is not uncommon but the primary involvement with distinguished multiple lymphomatous polyposis is unusual. We report a case of mantle cell lymphoma presenting as multiple lymphomatous...Continue reading →

Sudden Death from Retroperitoneal Hemorrhage Due to Necrotizing Pancreatitis

We report a case of sudden death from retroperitoneal hemorrhage in 73-year-old male due to rupture of peri-pancreatic artery in acute necrotizing pancreatitis. This appears to be the first case report of sudden death from retroperitoneal hemorrhage due to pancreatitis. The rupture site was not identifiable by gross-exami- nation but it was confirmed...Continue reading →

Neuroendocrine Tumor of the Gallbladder with Hepatic Metastases: A Case Report

A 68-year-old woman presented with hepatic metastasis. She had been performed cholecystectomy at a provincial hospital for symptomatic gallstones and was diagnosed as poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the gallbladder. The follow-up hepatic segmentectomy revealed a malignant small round tumor composed of nests of cells containing small nuclei...Continue reading →

CD43 Expression in Malignant Melanoma: A Diagnostic Pitfall

CD43 is commonly concerned as a marker for hematopoietic cells and, at times, a preferential T-cell marker. However, a number of non-hematologic cancers, mostly carcinoma, can express CD43. Recently, a case of malignant melanoma mimicking malignant lymphoma by cytomorphology was reported to express CD43 as well as melanoma markers but the other hematologic...Continue reading →

Incomplete pentalogy of Cantrell: a case report

Pentalogy of Cantrell is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by defects involving the supra-umbilical abdominal wall, lower sternum, anterior diaphragm, pericardium, and the intra-cardiac anomalies. The ensuing congenital heart disease is a source of major morbidity. The full spectrum of the syndrome is rare while incomplete expression of the...Continue reading →
