Desmoid Tumor of the Buttock in a Preadolescent Child
Yogesh Kumar Sarin,Nita Khurana
APSP Journal of Case Reports , 2011,
Abstract: Extra-abdominal desmoid tumors are circumscribed but non-capsulated neoplasms of differentiated fibrous tissue arising from musculoaponeurotic tissues. They tend to be locally infiltrative, resulting in a high rate of local recurrence without metastasis, following surgical resection. We report a 9-year-old boy who had a large desmoid tumor in his right buttock that was successfully excised.
Role of gastric brush cytology in the diagnosis of giardiasis
Varma Deepali,Jain Shyama,Khurana Nita
Journal of Cytology , 2008,
Abstract: Background: Giardiasis, common in developing countries, has mostly nonspecific clinical symptoms, resulting in a limited role for preliminary tests. Aims: The present study aims to highlight the utility of endoscopic brush cytology (EBC) in the diagnosis of giardiasis in clinically unsuspected cases. Materials and Methods: Endoscopic brush smears (EBS) are routinely obtained in all patients presenting with gastric symptoms. The present study is a retrospective analysis of EBS, consisting of 12 cases whose smears had revealed trophozoites of Giardia lamblia . Biopsy correlation was available in five cases. Results: The patients ranged in age from 15 to 78 years (mean age: 34.08 years) with a 1:1 sex ratio. Stool examination in all 12 cases yielded negative results for giardiasis. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was normal in all these cases. EBS from these cases revealed Giardia trophozoites, which were identified by their typical morphology. Conclusions: Endoscopic brush cytology can be used as a reliable screening tool in the diagnosis of gastro-duodenal giardiasis in clinically unsuspected cases, especially in developing countries where parasitic infections are common.
Nodular fasciitis of the external ear masquerading as pleomorphic adenoma: A potential diagnostic pitfall in fine needle aspiration cytology
Jain Deepali,Khurana Nita,Jain Shyama
CytoJournal , 2008,
Abstract: Background: Nodular fasciitis (NF) is a benign myofibroblastic proliferation in soft tissue. The most common sites are extremities, followed by the trunk and head and neck region. It is infrequently seen in the post-auricular region of pinna. Case presentation: We present here an interesting case of a young male who had a swelling in the post-auricular region; on cytology, it was diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma; however, biopsy revealed characteristic morphology of NF. Conclusion: The case highlights the potential pitfall of cytology in diagnosing NF, especially because of unusual site and morphologic overlap.

Prenatally Diagnosed Retroperitoneal Fetus-In-Fetu with Ipsilateral Testicular Atrophy: A Case Report
Shalini Sinha,Yogesh Kumar Sarin,Nita Khurana
Journal of Neonatal Surgery , 2012,
Abstract: We report a case of prenatally diagnosed Fetus-in-fetu (FIF) residing in the left retro-peritoneum in a 2-week-old neonate which was also associated with ipsilateral testicular atrophy. A comparison of features differentiating FIF from a retroperitoneal teratoma, and various theories of origin of FIF are described. The causal relationship of ipsilateral atrophic testis with FIF in this case is also discussed.

Nikhil Gupta,Niladhar Shankarrao Hadke,Nita Khurana
Clinics and Practice , 2011, DOI: 10.4081/cp.2011.e90
Abstract: Isolated sternal involvement in tuberculosis is rare. Very few case reports are available in literature even from the countries where tuberculosis is endemic. We are reporting a case of 32-year-old female who presented to us with a pus discharging sinus over manubrium sterni with no other systemic features of tuberculosis. Sinus tract was excised and biopsy confirmed tuberculosis. Patient received antitubercular therapy for 9 months.

Abstract: A case of fibroma with minor sex cord elements discovered incidentally in a normal sized ovary in a patient who presented with dysfunctional uterine bleeding is being presented. This is the first case report describing this entity in a normal sized ovary as an incidental finding.Ovarian fibroma with minor sex cord elements is a rare entity which was first described by Young and Scully in 1983. Only 8 cases of ovarian fibroma with minor sex cord elements have been reported till date [1-4]. We report a case of fibroma with minor sex cord elements of a normal sized ovary discovered incidentally in a patient who presented with dysfunctional uterine bleeding. This is a rare, distinct clinico-pathologic entity among unclassified sex cord stromal tumors and is the first case report describing, the incidental occurrence of this entity in a normal sized ovary.A 45 year old female, gravida 3, para 3, presented to the gynecology outpatient with complaints of something coming out of the vagina and menorrhagia since the past 6 months. Per speculum examination revealed first degree cervical descent with second degree cystocele and rectocele. On vaginal examination uterus was 6 weeks in size, retroverted and mobile with clear bilateral fornices were free. Abdominal ultrasonography was normal. A clinical diagnosis of dysfunctional uterine bleeding with second degree cervical descent along with second degree cystocele and rectocele was made. Since the patient had completed her family, a total abdominal hysterectomy along with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed.We received a specimen of uterus with cervix along with bilateral adnexa measuring 8 × 3.5 × 2.5 cm. The cervix was everted pearly white in colour with 4 cm long endocervical canal. The endometrium and myometrium thickness were 0.1 cm and 2 cm. The myometrium on serial slicing showed a focus of hemorrhage. The right ovary measured 2.5 × 2.5 × 1.5 cm and was externally covered by capsule. Cut surface of the ovary sho

Abstract: We herein report a case of psammocarcinoma of ovary with serous cystadenofibroma of contralateral ovary in a 55 year old Asian Indian female.To the best of author's knowledge, ours is the rare case describing coexistence of this very rare malignant serous epithelial tumor with a benign serous cystadenofibroma of contralateral ovary.Psammocarcinoma of ovary is a rare serous neoplasm. Diagnosis requires the psammoma bodies to be present in at least 75% of papillae which show a destructive invasion of the ovarian stroma. The neoplastic cells do not show more than moderate atypia. There should be no areas of solid proliferation of neoplastic cells. These tumors are associated with a better prognosis than conventional serous neoplasms with low recurrence following tumor resection [1]. Literature search showed presence of only 28 cases of psammocarcinoma of ovary reported till date (Table 1) [1-17]. This case will be another new one in the literature with serous cystadenofibroma of contralateral ovary and elevated levels of CA-125.A 55-year-old Asian Indian female presented to gynecology clinic with complaints of menorrhagia, abdominal discomfort and pain. On Examination a mass was palpable in the lower abdomen which was non tender and fixed. Ultrasound (USG) examination revealed the presence of an abdomino-pelvic mass and ascites. Contrast-enhanced computed tomogram (CECT) revealed an abdominopelvic lobulated calcified mass measuring 17 × 15 × 16 cms (Fig 1a). Clinically, a possibility of calcified fibroid of uterus was suspected. However, cytologic examination of ascitic fluid was positive for malignant cells. On exploratory laparotomy, bilateral ovaries were enlarged with intact capsule. Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed. There were no retroperitoneal lymph nodes. No visible tumor nodules were identified on peritoneal surface. Grossly the left ovary was enlarged and measuring 24 × 20 × 20 cms. Outer surface was smooth and l

Abstract: A 38-year-old female presented with complaints of painless, hard breast lump for three months which was clinically suspected to be a ductal carcinoma with inconclusive fine needle aspiration cytology. Histopathology revealed a malignant spindle cell tumor which was confirmed to be malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor on the basis of immunopositivity for vimentin, neurone specific enolase and S-100.To the best of our knowledge only six such case reports have been published in literature. The differential diagnosis of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor should be considered by the clinician as well as the pathologists in the work-up of a breast neoplasm as treatment and prognosis of this rare malignancy is different.Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma of the ectomesenchymal origin. It is the malignant counterpart of benign soft tissue tumors like neurofibromas and schwannomas and may follow them. Common sites include deeper soft tissues, usually in the proximity of a nerve trunk. MPNST in the breast is often unsuspected and the diagnosis may be missed unless clinical suspicion is high and immunohistochemistry carried outA 38-year old female patient presented to the surgical out patient department with complaints of a rapidly growing right breast lump for three months. There was no history of prior breast mass, pain, trauma, bleeding, discharge, or family history of breast cancer. On examination there was a single 3.5 × 3 × 3 cm, ill defined non tender, firm, fixed mass in the right upper outer quadrant. There was no retraction or ulceration of the overlying skin. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) suggested a malignant spindle cell tumor probably a malignant phylloides. An excisional biopsy was advised to confirm the diagnosis and to guide the further management.Grossly the specimen was a skin covered lumpectomy specimen measuring 5 × 4.4 × 4 cms. The cut sections revealed a firm infiltrative unencapsulated gray whi
