Autopsy (Definition)

An autopsy is an examination of an individual after death to ascertain the cause of death. It can be a complete examination of all organs or a focussed examination of one (or several) organ (s). It may involve gross examination (features obvious to the naked eye) as well as microscopic examination of dissected tissues. The results are often released in the form ...Read more

Is differentiated or undifferentiated VIN more likely to become cancer?

Is differentiated or undifferentiated VIN more likely to become cancer?

Both need Rx: Differentiated is clearly squamous, undifferentiated a more primitive type of cell. Both need to be managed, and both may be quite ugly cytologically (high risk) or relatively tame-looking. The pathologist can offer some guidance as to whether close observation / repeat biopsies might be appropriate. ...Read more

How is acute clot differentiated from chronic clot on ultrasound?

How is acute clot differentiated from chronic clot on ultrasound?

Several ways: There are a number of features that can be used to distinguish acute from chronic venous thrombosis.

In acute clot the lumen of the vein will be hypoechoic. The vessel will be enlarged and there may be peri-venous edema.

I chronic clot the intraluminal echoes will be hyperchoic. There may be evidence of recanalization. The vein may be contracted. ...Read more

Is it possible for differentiated endometrioid adenocarcinoma to be cured?

Yes: endometrial cancer which begins in the endometrial mucosa, before invading myometrium or muscle of uterus is virtually 100% cureable. Even if D&C shows tumor cells spreading to blood stream this is not metastasis but cells pushed by curettage into the blood. Even early muscle invasion followed by hysterectomy with node diss. Can be cured. ...Read more

How are diagnoses of lysosome storage disorders differentiated from congenital disorders of glycosylation? References?

Difficult to differe: Lysosome storage disease, congenital disorders of glycosylation (cdg), peroxisomal disorders, smith-lemli-opitz are "single-gene disorders, most of which demonstrate autosomal-recessive inheritance. These 4 categories of metabolic diseases involve molecules important in cell membranes and share overlapping clinical presentations". (avery's diseases of the newborn, by w. Taeusch, 2005, p. 258). ...Read more

How can lymphadenopathy be differentiated on clinical grounds. Common causes?

How can lymphadenopathy be differentiated on clinical grounds. Common causes?

Some causes listed..: Lymphadenopathy is a term used to describe palpable lymph nodes. This usually means that the nodes are enlarged. They may or may not be pathological.

What is the best treatment for color differentiation difficulties?

Depends: Tooth whitening is the first non-invasive choice. You can selectively whiten darker teeth if you want. Stay away from the one hour in office whitening as it is the least effective, most expensive, most side effects. And the light used with it has no effect. In my office we also offer internal bleaching if root canal treated teeth. As a last resort porcelain veneers can be done. ...Read more

What are the advantages/disadvantages of imiqunoid vs surgical excision to treat differentiated VIN 2?

Imiquimod 5%: Offers a noninvasive treatment for VIN. A major advantage over the potential scarring, deformity, and/or recovery from surgery. It provides complete resolution in ~75% cases. There is a ~25% risk of disease recurrence. Imiquimod works by prompting your immune system to fight the cancer. The inflammatory response to imiquimod can result in topical side effects, requiring breaks in treatment. ...Read more

What is the difference between cancer in situ and differentiated VIN3? What is the long term prognosis? VIN3 twice in 12 months with clear margins

VIN3 = appearance of: Cells under microscope, judged to be most abnormal, "pre-cancerous appearing" yet not clearly cancerous; see: https://www. Google. Com/#q=VIN3. Cancer in situ simply means no other sites (metastasis) of similar cells have been identified/recognized to be present. The 2 key definitions of cancer are: (1) Invading adjacent normal cells &/or (2) also growing in other parts of body (metastasis). ...Read more
