Adenocarcinoma arising at a colostomy site with inguinal lymph node metastasis: report of a case.

Inguinal lymph node metastasis from adenocarcinoma arising at a colostomy site is extremely rare, and the significance of surgical resection for metastatic inguinal lymph nodes has not been establishe...

Clinical Importance of Supraclavicular Lymph Node Metastasis After Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy for Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

To examine the clinical implications of supraclavicular (SC) lymph node (LN) metastasis in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) who receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy, followed by sur...

FOXP3+ Lymphocyte Density in Pancreatic Cancer Correlates with Lymph Node Metastasis.

To determine if the density of FOXP3+ lymphocytes in primary tumors and lymph nodes in pancreatic cancer correlates with the presence of lymph node metastases.

Primary Esophageal Adenocarcinoma With Distant Metastasis to the Skeletal Muscle.

Abstract Hematogenous metastasis of esophageal adenocarcinoma to the skeletal muscle is uncommon. We report a rare case of esophageal adenocarcinoma with metastasis to the skeletal muscle. During pret...

SCF, Regulated by HIF-1α, Promotes Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma Cell Progression.

Stem cell factor (SCF) and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) both have important functions in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). This study aims to analyze the expression and clinicopatholo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.

Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.

The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.

The historic designation for scrofula (TUBERCULOSIS, LYMPH NODE). The disease is so called from the belief that it could be healed by the touch of a king. This term is used only for historical articles using the name "king's evil", and is to be differentiated from scrofula as lymph node tuberculosis in modern clinical medicine. (From Webster, 3d ed)

Surgical excision of one or more lymph nodes. Its most common use is in cancer surgery. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p966)
