Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the histologic spectrum of stromal–epithelial patterns of invasion in ovarian serous and mucinous tumors of low malignant potential.Materials and methods: We retrospectively analyzed 31 cases of borderline ovarian serous and mucinous tumors diagnosed of the Pathology Department of County Hospital Timisoara in a period of 5 years, between 2003 and 2007. Epithelial architecture, the patterns of stroma...

Introduction: The value of microvessel density (MVD) as a prognostic factor in thyroid carcinomas, and its role in the development of metastasis, remain controversial.Aim: Determination of the relationship between MVD, the histological subtype of PTC, the presence or absence of metastasis in cervical lymph nodes (LN), the recurrence of the disease and AMES prognostic index.Material and method: The study included 32 patients with PT...

Introduction: The mammary cancer is the most frequent malign tumor encountered in females, characterized by a high distant metastasis tendency. Among the potential prognosis factors, we mention the biomarkers that measure or are associated with biologic processes involved in the tumorous progression. The study analyzes the p53 protein’s positivity in correlation with the mammary cancer’s classical prognosis factors: the hystologic type, the histopathologic degree, th...
