In small (≤2 cm) oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma (OTSCC), we sought to clarify the contribution of pathologic features including perineural invasion (PNI), lymphovascular invasion (LVI), and worst pattern of invasion-5 (WPOI-5) to clinical outcomes relative to tumor depth of invasion (DOI) of > or ≤ 4 mm.

We evaluated the relationships among functional imaging modality such as PET-CT and DW-MRI and lung adenocarcinoma pathologic heterogeneity, extent of invasion depth, and tumor cellularity as a marker...
Determining the depth of invasion is important when considering therapeutic strategies for early gastric cancer (EGC). We determined the effects of learning the non-extension sign, that is, an index o...
The eighth edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual (AJCC 8) incorporates depth of invasion (DOI) into the pathologic tumor (pT) classification and pathologic extranodal extension (pENE) into the pat...
Prostatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) is a rare histologic subtype of prostate cancer characterized by large glands lined with tall columnar pseudostratified epithelium. PDA has several architectural ...
Diffuse tenosynovial giant cell tumor (TGCT) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is rare. The aim of the present study was to summarize the clinical, radiologic, and pathologic features of this tumor...
The accurate prediction of depth of tumor invasion in early gastric cancer is essential for the proper selection of candidates for endoscopic resection. Conventional endoscopy and endoscop...
The treatment of early gastric cancer can be divided into endoscopic resection and surgery, and the precise staging of early gastric cancer is very important to prevent unnecessary surgery...
Background: Lymph node status is an important prognostic parameter in esophageal carcinoma and an independent predictor of survival. Distribution of metastatic lymph nodes may vary with tu...
The purpose of this study is to investigate if ultrasound can be helpful in the diagnostic work-up of oral tongue and floor of the mouth cancer. One important factor is how deeply the tumo...
Small intestine carcinoid tumors are rare. Small intestine Familial Carcinoid Tumors (FCT) are defined by the occurrence of at least 2 cases of this tumor type in first- or second-degree r...
A malignant tumor arising from the nuclear layer of the retina that is the most common primary tumor of the eye in children. The tumor tends to occur in early childhood or infancy and may be present at birth. The majority are sporadic, but the condition may be transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait. Histologic features include dense cellularity, small round polygonal cells, and areas of calcification and necrosis. An abnormal pupil reflex (leukokoria); NYSTAGMUS, PATHOLOGIC; STRABISMUS; and visual loss represent common clinical characteristics of this condition.

An autosomal dominant familial prion disease with a wide spectrum of clinical presentations including ATAXIA, spastic paraparesis, extrapyramidal signs, and DEMENTIA. Clinical onset is in the third to sixth decade of life and the mean duration of illness prior to death is five years. Several kindreds with variable clinical and pathologic features have been described. Pathologic features include cerebral prion protein amyloidosis, and spongiform or neurofibrillary degeneration.

Methods to identify and characterize cancer in the early stages of disease and predict tumor behavior.
Involuntary movements of the eye that are divided into two types, jerk and pendular. Jerk nystagmus has a slow phase in one direction followed by a corrective fast phase in the opposite direction, and is usually caused by central or peripheral vestibular dysfunction. Pendular nystagmus features oscillations that are of equal velocity in both directions and this condition is often associated with visual loss early in life.

An unusual and aggressive tumor of germ-cell origin that reproduces the extraembryonic structures of the early embryo. It is the most common malignant germ cell tumor found in children. It is characterized by a labyrinthine glandular pattern of flat epithelial cells and rounded papillary processes with a central capillary (Schiller-Duval body). The tumor is rarely bilateral. Before the use of combination chemotherapy, the tumor was almost invariably fatal. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1189)
There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma Basal cell carcinoma, or BCC, is a cancer of the basal cells at the bottom of the epidermis. It’s very common ...
