Diagnosis: Hyperplasia doesn’t cause a lump that can be felt, diagnosis is made by a biopsy and microscopic examination. (43) Types of hyperplasia can affect breast cancer risk: 1) Mild hyperplasia of the usual type: does not increase the risk of breast cancer. 2) Moderate or florid hyperplasia of the usual type (without atypia), also known as usual hyperplasia: The risk of breast cancer is about 1½ to 2 times than that of a woman without breast abnormalities.
The other type is proportionate dwarfism where all the body parts are small and are the same size. This type is usually apparent at birth or early childhood when growth and development do not happen normally. Dwarfism remains a rare disease and it only affects about 200,000 people in the population. There were approximately 5000 achondroplasts in the United States of America in 1971 and approximately 65000 in the
Nevus lipomatosus superficialis is an uncommon beningn hamartomatous skin lesion. The classic type of NLCS is usually unilateral as seen in our case. The classic variety of NLCS is either present at birth or can arise at any other time within in Ist two decades of life4,5,6. There are sporadic case reports of coexistent anomalies in the form of café-au-lait macules and scattered leucoderma. Increased hairness and comedo-like lesions have also been reported7.
This can be due to Small study group comprising 65 patients, Irregular presence of onsite cytopathologist for supervision (11, 12), 4 patients were lost on follow up. Therefore the presence of cytopathologist produces good diagnostic yield. Incidence of complication due to the procedure of CT guided transthoracic fine-needle aspiration cytology of lung lesions.
Key-words: B cell NHL, Introduction Majority of the orbital lymphomas are B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and tend to present in the 6th and 7thdecades. Presentation before the age of 20 is rare. In children, orbital leukemic infiltrates are much more common than lymphoma. Most subtypes of lymphoma have a female-to-male risk of 1.5:1. Lymphomas of the eye are usually located superiorly and
RARE IS ALWAYS RARE - AN UNUSUAL PRESENTATION OF INFLAMMATORY GINGIVAL ENLARGEMENT ABSTRACT Increase in the size of gingiva is called as gingival enlargement. Gingival enlargement is classified according to etiology, pathogenesis, location and distribution. It may be inflammatory, non inflammatory or a combination of both. A number of local and systemic factors such as plaque retention, hormonal changes, drug intake and heredity can cause or influence gingival enlargement. Here is a rare case report of a 30 year old female patient with aggressively looking massive unilateral gingival enlargement which on histopathological evaluation, turned out to be the common inflammatory gingival enlargement.
Tumors are groups of abnormal cells that form lumps or growths. Different types of tumors grow and behave differently, depending on whether they are non-cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). (2) Precancerous conditions have the potential to develop into cancer. Benign tumors are non-malignant/non-cancerous tumor. A benign tumor is usually localized, and does not spread to other parts of the body.
INTRODUCTION Chondroblastoma is an uncommon benign tumor accounting for less than 1% of bone tumors. It mainly involves the epiphysis or epimetaphysis of long bones.(1) Chondroblastoma with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst is a rare entity and only 13 cases have been reported in the literature reviewed. Ours is a case of calcaneal chondroblastoma with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst. Only two cases of calcaneal chondroblastoma associated with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) has been reported till date in the literature reviewed.(1)(2) CASE REPORT
INTRODUCTION An odontogenic myxoma (OM) is a rare ,benign and locally aggressive odontogenic tumor characterised by gross replacement of cancellous bone by gelatinous or mucoid tissue ,thus leading to cortical bone expansion. It originates from the embryonic mesenchymal elements of the developing tooth. World Health Organisation has categorized OM as a benign tumor of ectomesenchymal origin with or without presence of odontogenic epithelium.1 They are slowly progressing ,asymptomatic, and site-aggressive tumors.
Acute Ataxia This patient’s likely diagnosis is acute ataxia, a relatively uncommon condition with an incidence of 1 in 100,000. Acute ataxia is the sudden loss of voluntary, coordinated muscle
