    Quantitation of hemoglobin (Hb) A(1c) and investigation of hemoglobinopathy on the Bio-Rad Variant analyzers require a switch between 2 separate kits that is time consuming and causes errors. Evaluation of a new Variant II HbA(2)/HbA(1c) Dual kit capable of both Hb A(1c) quantitation and hemoglo...

    To determine operational practices in laboratories operating under a Certificate of Wavier (waived laboratories), or equivalent, under the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments (CLIA) of 1988 when performing tests designated as having an insignificant risk of an erroneous result (ie, waive...
  7. Impact of nucleic acid testing for human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis C virus on blood product availability, outdating, and patient safety: results of the 2001 AABB/CAP Viral Marker C Survey.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1463 (2002) PMID 12456205

    Limited data are available about the impact of nucleic acid testing for human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis C virus in donated blood as part of a nationwide investigational study that affected greater than 90% of the blood supply. To assess the impact of nucleic acid testing on supply, ou...
  8. Alzheimer pathology in elderly patients with glioblastoma multiforme.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1515 (2002) PMID 12456214

    Alzheimer disease (AD) and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) have similar peak, age-specific incidence rates; however, to my knowledge, only 1 case of GBM associated with AD has been reported to date. The frequency of AD pathology, including neuritic plaques, diffuse plaques, neurofibrillary tangles...
  9. Pathologic quiz case: a 34-year-old man wiht a right middle finger mass. Mycobacterial soft tissue spindle cell tumor in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1547 (2002) PMID 12503584

  10. Pathologic quiz case: chronic anemia with red cell aplasia and lymphocytosis in a middle-aged man. T-cell large granular lymphocyte leukemia.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1549 (2002) PMID 12503585

  11. Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the uterine cervix.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1501 (2002) PMID 12456211

    It has been proposed that Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) plays a role in the etiology of lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) in diverse anatomic locations. In contrast to Asian women, Western women have a low prevalence of LELC of the uterine cervix, and EBV genomes have not been identified. To as...
  12. Adult rhabdoid renal cell carcinoma.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1506 (2002) PMID 12456212

    Pediatric rhabdoid tumor of the kidney is regarded as a distinct neoplasm, whereas rhabdoid differentiation in adult renal cell carcinoma is usually found in association with conventional (clear cell) tumor, from which it is thought to evolve. To further characterize the rhabdoid phenotype in ad...
  13. Metastatic carcinoid to the conducting system-is it a rare or merely unrecognized manifestation of carcinoid cardiopathy?

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1538 (2002) PMID 12456219

    We report a unique case of carcinoid cardiopathy. The patient, a 59-year-old white woman with a known carcinoid tumor of the terminal ileum, presented with complete heart block and subsequently died. Because of her clinical presentation, we examined the conducting system at autopsy. The atrioven...
  14. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia with t(14;18) and trisomy 12.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1543 (2002) PMID 12456221

    The chromosomal abnormality t(14;18) is most commonly associated with neoplasms of follicular center cell origin. However, t(14;18) also has been reported in rare cases of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). In 2215 cases of CLL studied by conventional cytogenetics in our institution, we identif...
  15. Ectopic parathyroid adenoma initially suspected to be a thyroid lesion.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1541 (2002) PMID 12456220

    Considering the variety of aberrant locations in which ectopic parathyroid adenomas may be found, these neoplasms can be difficult to identify and treat surgically. The results of radiographic and cytologic studies may lead to confusion of these neoplasms with lesions of thyroid origin. We prese...
  16. Pathologic quiz case: left eye proptosis, ptosis, and blindness. Hemangiopericytoma of the orbit.

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1555 (2002) PMID 12503588

    Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 126(12):1530 (2002) PMID 12456217

    Adrenal tumors often present with clinical features that are specific and unique to their endocrine metabolism. When these features are in conflict with the pathologic appearance of the tumor, there can be great consternation for both the pathologist and the surgeon. In the case reported herein,...
