Malignant mesothelioma: A histomorphological and immunohistochemical study of 24 cases from a tertiary care hospital in Southern India.

Indian Journal of Cancer 2018 April-June [Link] Hui M, Uppin SG, Bhaskar K, Kumar NN, Paramjyothi GK Abstract BACKGROUND: Malignant mesotheliomas are histologically heterogeneous neoplasms. Definite diagnosis requires a varied panel of immunohistochemical (IHC) markers to differentiate these from histological mimics. Only a few case series have been reported in the Indian literature where mesotheliomas […]
