Journal of Medical Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: The ear is an important and under-recognized defining feature of the face whose shape conveys information about age and sex that is clearly difficult to characterize. This study was designed to generate anthropometric, normative cross-sectional data on the adult ear auricle in Nigerians. It was also aimed at showing the morphological and aesthetic differences between males and females; as well as changes in ear morphology with age. A total of 217 adult Nigerians (aged 18-65 years) who met the inclusion criteria were enrolled into the study. Standardized measurements of the ear pinna (total ear height, lobular height and lobular width) were undertaken. The data were analyzed using SPSS version 10.0. The mean total ear height and mean lobular height across the cohort were 5.60 and 1.11 cm, respectively, while the average lobular width measured 1.35 cm. The results indicates that the mean total ear height and mean lobular height were higher in the males than in the females while the females had a higher mean lobular width of 1.37 cm than the mean lobular width of 1.33 cm in males. There were increases in earlobe height and lobular height but a decrease in lobular width with advancing age. This study has shown that age related changes in ear morphology do exist in Nigerians and the changes were with respect to sex from adolescence to the age groups of 41-45 years. But further study to relate the results of our present study to the height of individual and some facial/cranial anthropometric parameters is going on.

Abstract:

Keloids are tissue repair formed by exuberant fibrosis appearing after a skin wound, burn, vaccination or post inflammatory (folliculitis or acne lesion). This condition causes standard aesthetic prejudice to those who are affected. Its management is difficult and its evolution meshes recurrences. We report here a case of giant keloid in the right ear lobe after a piercing and its support.

Journal of Dentistry , 2011,
Abstract: Statement of Problem: Due to the clinicopathologic similarity of pyogenic granuloma to some neoplastic or hamartomatouse lesion, vascular density can represent some biological behaviors of this lesion.Purpose: This study aimed to evaluate the density of the vessels and the clinicopathological features of oral pyogenic granuloma (PG) and its histopathologic subtypes. Materials &Methods: Information about age, sex, site, size, duration and the presence of surface ulceration in total and in two histopathologic subtypes (lobular and non-lobular) were collected From 94 PG files in the archives and were compared. Vessel counting was performed on H&E slides and the density of the vessels was compared in two subtypes, two genders and ulcerated and non-ulcerated groups using Independent Samples T- test.Results: Pyogenic granuloma comprised 4.5 percent of all the lesions. The male to female ratio was 1:1.7. The mean age of the patients was 27.99 years and the most frequent involved site was the gingiva (84%). The Non-LCH lesions were more than LCH. Post- mandibular gingiva in the LCH group and the anterior portion of the maxillary gingiva were the most locations of involvement. The mean duration of the presence of the lesion in Non-LCH was more than that in LCH. Surface ulceration in Non-LCH (89.4%) was more than LCH (78.6%). Although the mean density of the vessels was equal in both males and females; there was a significant difference in the lesions with or without surface ulcerations ( p =0.01). However there was no significant difference between the lobular and non-lobular groups.Conclusion: The site of the lesion, duration, and the lower cases with surface ulceration in the LCH form can be in contrast with reactive nature of this subtype, showing similarity to tumoral or developmental lesions. Gender does not influence the density of blood vessels in PG but surface ulceration can influence it.

Abstract: Introducción: Aunque el cáncer de mama metastatiza con mayor frecuencia en ganglios linfáticos, hueso, pulmón e hígado, también se puede extender hacia el tracto gastrointestinal, peritoneo y órganos ginecológicos. Material y Método: Describimos tres casos de carcinomatosis peritoneal secundaria a la diseminación metastásica de un carcinoma lobulillar infiltrante de mama. En los tres casos el diagnóstico se hizo varios a os después del descubrimiento del tumor primario y en dos de ellos se observa remisión de la enfermedad al a o y cuatro a os respectivamente tras la administración de quimio y hormonoterapia postoperatoria. Conclusión: La carcinomatosis peritoneal en cáncer de mama es poco frecuente, pero cuando aparece casi siempre es secundaria a un carcinoma lobulillar infiltrante con receptores hormonales positivos. Los síntomas son inespecíficos y normalmente existe un intervalo largo desde el diagnóstico inicial del tumor, de ahí que en muchos casos sea difícil diferenciar entre un tumor primario de la cavidad peritoneal y la presencia de metástasis de un carcinoma de mama, no solo a nivel clínico, sino también histológico. El diagnóstico resulta fundamental para el oncólogo, pues con tratamiento quimio y hormo-noterápico se han descrito remisiones parciales o completas del tumor durante períodos prolongados de tiempo Introduction: Although breast cancer most frequently metastasizes to the linfatic nodes, bones, lungs and liver, it can also affect the gastrointestinal tract, peritoneum and gynecology organs. Material and methods: We describe three cases of peritoneal carcinomatosis secondary to metastatic dissemination of an infiltrating lobular breast cancer. In the three cases diagnosis was realized many years after the delivering of the primary tumour and in two cases we observed tumour remission at one and four years respectively after administration of chemotherapy and hormonal therapy postoperative. Conclusion: Peritoneal carcinomatosis in breast cancer is rare, but when appears it is usually secondary to infiltrating lobular breast cancer with positive hormonal receptors. The symptoms are unspecific and normally exists a long term after the initial diagnosis of the tumour, therefore in many cases it is difficult of differentiate between a primary tumour of peritoneal cavity and metastases of a breast cancer. The diagnosis is fundamental, because with the chemotherapy and the hormonal therapy, partial or complete tumour remissions, have been described during long time

Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Polymorphous low grade Adenocarcinoma (PLGA) is a malignant epithelial tumour that is essentially limited in occurrence to minor salivary gland sites .It has a unique clinical, histomorphologic and behavioural aspects. It is mainly reported as a painless swelling of the hard and soft palate along with symptoms of bleeding, telengiectasia or ulceration of the overlying mucosa occasionally. In this paper, we present a case of Polymorphous low grade Adenocarcinoma with its clincopathological features and immunohistochemistry.
Diffuse gastric metastasis from lobular carcinoma of the breast: A case report
Kemal DEN?Z,Tahir Ercan PATIRO?LU
Türk Patoloji Dergisi , 2006,
Abstract: We report a case of diffuse gastric metastasis from lobular carcinoma of the breast arising in a 65-year-old woman. The patient had undergone mastectomy 5 years ago and on her last admission she had complaints of epigastric discomfort and weight loss. Computed tomography scan showed diffuse gastric wall thickening. Gastric biopsy revealed metastatic lobular carcinoma and the patient underwent a total gastrectomy. Histologic examination demonstrated transmural neoplastic infiltration with uniform tumor cells which were arranged in rows and single cells. Diagnostic difficulties and histopathologic features of this rare entity were discussed.

Abstract: Lupus erythematosus panniculitis is a quite rare clinical entity characterised by one or several firm, asymptomatic, often fairly large subcutaneous nodules, as a manifestation of SLE or DLE. Two cases of lupus panniculitis, both female, are described here. Both of them had absence of typical lesions of SLE or DLE elsewhere in the body. Systemic symptoms were not present, antinuclear factor was positive in one case. Both showed typical lobular panniculitis on biospy and responded favourably to systemic chloroquine therapy.

Abstract: Background Colorectal metastasis of lobular carcinoma of the breast is a diagnostic challenge. It may macroscopically simulate primary colon cancer or inflammatory bowel disease. In some cases, the interval between the primary breast cancer and metastatic colorectal lesions is so long that the critical records for diagnosis including history might be lost or missed. Case presentation Reported herein is a case of metastatic lobular carcinoma of the breast masquerading as a primary rectal cancer developed in a 62-year-old Japanese woman. The case initially presented as a circumferential rectal lesion, and information on the patient’s history of breast cancer was not noted. As the result of endoscopic biopsy, diagnosis of poorly differentiated rectal adenocarcinoma was made. The lesion was surgically resected after chemo-radiotherapy. Histopathological examination of the resected specimen with hematoxylin and eosin (HE) stain revealed a single-file arrangement of the tumor cells, reminiscent of lobular carcinoma of the breast. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed an immunophenotype consistent with lobular carcinoma of the breast. Because further review of the patient’s history revealed an occurrence of ‘poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the breast’, which she had experienced 24 years earlier, the final diagnosis of the lesion was made as rectal metastasis from lobular breast carcinoma. Conclusions Poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the colorectum is rarer than that of the stomach. Linitis plastica-type cancer of the colorectum is also rarer than that of the stomach. A lesson from the present case is that before we conclude a linitis plastica-type cancer of poorly differentiated type as a primary colorectal cancer, it is critical to exclude a possibility of metastatic colorectal cancer.
