However, the rate of recurrence is rather high ranging from 20 to 85 % and many attempts have been made to decrease this rate. Some inves- tigators showed that the cells of...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 →

Sclerosing Polycystic Adenosis of the Parotid Gland: Report of A Case with Multifocality

Sclerosing polycystic adenosis (SPA) is a rare tumor-like lesion of the salivary gland that bears a histomorphological resemblance to fibrocystic disease and sclerosing adenosis of the breast. The lesion is widely considered to be a pseudoneoplastic inflammatory process. However, foci of epithelial dysplasia and carcinoma in situ can occur in the...Continue reading →

Primary sinonasal mucosal melanoma with CD138 expressed plasmacytoid cells: a case report and review of literature

Primary sinonasal mucosal melanoma is a rare neoplasm. Like in other sites of malignant melanoma, the histopathology is variable and when lacking of melanin pigment, particularly in small biopsy specimen mimicks many neoplasms. Immunohistochemical staining plays an important role. Many immunomarkers, including S-100, HMB-45 and Melan-A should be...Continue reading →

Chondrosarcoma of distal phalanx with imaging study; a report of rare case with review of the literature

Chondrosarcoma of distal phalanx is extremely rare and to our best knowledge there was only one case having magnetic resonance ( MR ) imaging study. We report a case of 56-year-old woman developing chondrosarcoma of distal phalanx of the left ring finger. The radiographic and imaging studies highly suggested chondrosarcoma and amputation of distal...Continue reading →
