Multifocal FDG-avid hepatic metastases were also identified, as well as extensive serosal
, peritoneal, mesenteric, and omental carcinomatosis (Figure 2b).
Ascites was reported as a common sequela to an ovarian adenocarcinoma in a domestic fowl and was associated with the serosal
infiltration of the mesentery and intestines by tumor metastases.
5cm measured by colonoscopy, and eight out of 10 lymph nodes were infected, plus serosal
A fragment of colon was excised from intestine of pigs obtained from a local slaughterhouse, gently washed with PBS, stored in ice-cold PBS for transport to the laboratory, and finally deprived of the serosal
Five out of 15 LAMNs showed gross evidence of rupture with acellular mucin on the serosal
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) or recurrent polyserositis is a recessively inherited disorder, clinically characterized by inflammation of the serosal
, synovial and cutaneous tissues with clinical fever episodes which usually limits itself.
Due to inflammation of the serosal
layers, which line the chest and abdomen, cramping, vomiting, diarrhoea and pain can also be seen.
How to interpret serum CA 125 levels in patients with serosal
Accumulation of low density lipoproteins in stimulated rat serosal
mast cells during recovery from degranulation.
After visual inspection and careful palpation of the liver, a meticulous search of the peritoneal cavity is undertaken for small intra-abdominal serosal
, peritoneal and omental metastases (Fig.
As stated previously, the major determinants of which panel to use are (1) the location of the tumor--it will vary as to whether it is pleural, peritoneal, or another serosal
surface; (2) the phenotypic problem--benign versus malignant, epithelioid, spindle, biphasic, small cell, pleomorphic, and (3) the experience of the laboratory.
One patient required oversewing of a small bowel serosal
tear caused at the time of surgery by the Hem-o-Lok (Teleflex Medical, Research Triangle Park, NC) clip applier.
