BACKGROUND: Paraganglioma is a rare tumor arising from clusters of neuroendocrine cells in association with sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. It poses a diagnostic challenge because of its widespread anatomic distribution, subtle clinical manifestations, and a variety of morphologic patterns. AIM: The aim of this study is to have an insight into the diverse morphologic spectrum of extra-adrenal paraganglioma (EAP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of seven cytologically diagnosed cases of EAP over a period of 10 years was performed...

Substance P-like immunoreactivity (SPLI) has been observed in cell bodies of fetal cranial parasympathetic ganglia of rat. It first appears at day 16 of gestation at the same time as in cranial sensory ganglia. From day 17 to 21, SPLI neurons constitute most, if not all, submandibular-sublingual and intralingual ganglia, they form 30-40% of otic and pterygopalatine ganglia and numerous such neurons are found in the myenteric plexus of the esophagus as well as in pharyngeal and buccal walls. The immunoreactive material is thinly granular, and its appearance does not change with prenatal development...

Congenital granular cell tumor (CGCT), also known as congenital epulis, is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor of the oral cavity. We report of a 3 years and 7 months old female patient undergoing surgical excision of an oral tumor. Subsequent histological and immunohistological investigations within the clinical course led to the diagnosis of CGCT. However, clinical findings in this case, such as primary onset and an untypical location within the oral cavity, clearly stand in contrast to those usually found in CGCT, resulting in an exceptional case not previously described in the literature...

Tuberculosis of the adenoids is a rare form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, which is unassociated with pulmonary tuberculosis. In adults, this form occurs much more frequently than in children. The authors observed tuberculosis of the adenoids in a 14-year-old adolescent operated on in a planned way for second-third-degree adenoids. Intraoperative specimens exhibited epithelioid-cell tubercles with Langhans cells. Ziehl-Nielsn staining showed granular forms of acid-resistant mycobacteria. The latter were identified by an immunohistochemical assay...

The neural protein α-synuclein aggregates both in vivo and in vitro to form insoluble fibrils that are involved in Parkinson's disease pathogenesis. We have generated α-synuclein/fluorescent-protein fusion constructs overexpressed in muscle cells of the nematode, Caenorhabdtis elegans. Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) variants, Cerulean (C) or Venus (V), were fused to the C-terminus of human α-synuclein (S); the resultant fusion genes were designated SV and SC, plus a CV fusion as well as S, C and V singly...

In the tunicate Ciona intestinalis, the ciliated pharynx, which connects the external environment to a highly developed and compartmentalized gastrointestinal system, represents the natural portal of entry for a vast and diverse, potentially pathogenic microbial community. To address the role of the pharynx in immune surveillance in Ciona, we asked whether C3, the key component of the complement system, was expressed in this organ and whether the encoded protein was functionally active. We found by real-time PCR that C3, constitutively expressed in the pharynx, is up-regulated by LPS injection...

A 22 years old patient presented with recurrent episodes of diarrhoea, pharyngitis, apthous ulcers and fever for the past 6 months. The episodes lasted a week each time. The patient was admitted and blood studies revealed neutropenia with increased number of Large Granular Lymphocytes. Later on it was found out that his neutrophil count dropped to less than 0.2 x 10(9)/L after every 3 weeks. Bone marrow study revealed decreases neutrophil precursors during these episodes. He was diagnosed with adult onset cyclic neutropenia and his episodes were treated with G-CSF and Ceftriaxone...

BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyomas are rare benign tumors of striated muscle and include cardiac and extracardiac types. Extracardiac rhabdomyomas are divided in three subtypes (adult, fetal, genital). The adult type is usually found in the head and neck regions of elderly persons. Misinterpretations in initial diagnosis of adult rhabdomyomas on fine needle aspiration have been reported. CASE: A 64-year-old man presented with gurgling and difficulty swallowing for approximately 3 months...

Sarcoidosis is a common disease and affects the respiratory system in > 90% of cases, most commonly the intrathoracic lymph nodes and the respiratory parenchyma. Less commonly, the airways are involved, and the disease is manifested as mucosal erythema, edema, granularity and cobblestoning, plaques, nodules, and bronchial stenosis, airway distortion, traction bronchiectasis, and bronchiolitis. Airway involvement may lead to airflow limitation. Involvement of oral, nasal, and pharyngeal mucosa may cause hoarseness, dysphagia, laryngeal paralysis, and upper airway obstruction...

The first specimen of Ammocoetes branchialis that showed histologically any atrophic changes in the endostyle was taken on July 16. These changes proceeded relatively rapidly for about a month, after which the endostyle as such was no longer recognized. All specimens examined after August 15 showed in cross section the characteristic ductless follicles more or less completely formed. More gradual and minor changes in the way of further absorption of cell remnants and completion of the follicles continued at least until September 1...

Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) of the laryngopharynx is extremely rare, and no such descriptions have been reported in the literature. This study describes the clinical, histological, and immunohistochemical features of three cases of laryngopharynx PEComa. The patients (two males and one female) were 38, 42, and 47 years old, respectively. Their tumors were well-demarcated, gray white on the cut surface with focal hemorrhage, and ranged from 3.0 to 5.0cm in diameter. Microscopically, the tumors were characterized by an epithelioid arrangement of tumor cells, which had abundant clear to pale eosinophilic granular cytoplasm, vesicular nuclei, and prominent nucleoli...

Case 1: A 38-year-old female with a history of tonsillitis and sinusitis was admitted to our hospital because of lung edema. On admission, her serum creatinine increased to 5.57 mg/dL. Hypocomplementemia was not found. ASO and MPO-ANCA were 24 U/mL and 12 EU, respectively. She underwent emergency hemodialysis. Renal biopsy showed global sclerosis and fibrocellular crescentic formation, and marked angionecrosis was noted by light microscopy. Granular deposition of C3, IgG and IgM was seen along the capillary walls on immunofluorescence study...

Mammalian epithelia possess specialized cellular components that provide an impermeable barrier between two different environments. In particular, in the skin, mitotically dividing cells undergo a programmed set of morphological and biochemical changes leading to the establishment of the epidermal permeability barrier (EPB) to prevent escape of moisture and entrance of toxic molecules. Many different skin proteins are involved in the process but not all have been identified. We report here the results of the expression studies of a novel gene, highly and specifically expressed in the granular layer of the epidermis and in the epithelia of the oro-pharyngeal and gastro-intestinal tracts...

A granular cell tumour is a rare lesion of probable nerve sheath origin. It is typically benign but up to seven per cent may be malignant. Since its original description in the tongue in 1926, the tumour has been reported to occur at many other sites in the body. The authors report a case of a 49-year-old African woman with an oro-naso-parapharyngeal granular cell neoplasm causing mild dysphagia. The location of this tumour, which has not been reported previously, posed a unique surgical challenge. An initial attempt to remove the lesion transorally was only partially successful because it was too tough and adherent for conventional surgical dissecting instruments...
