Adenoma, Bronchial : Article by Charles Van Way, MD
Adenoma, Bronchial - Bronchial adenoma is a descriptive but misleading term for a histologically and clinically diverse group of respiratory tract neoplasms, which includes bronchial neuroendocrine tumors (carcinoids), adenoid cystic carcinomas (cylindromas), mucoepidermoid carcinomas, mucous gland adenomas, and other mixed seromucinous tumors arising from mucous glands and ducts of the tracheobronchial tree. The term is misleading because these tumors are of widely variable malignant potential, although low-grade malignancies predominate. Only mucous gland adenomas are truly benign, lacking malignant potential.Originally, in ...

The curved fibers are called chrysotile, and the straight fibers are amphiboles. Researchers recognize 5 different ...
Aspergillosis : Article by Eloise M Harman, MD

Whether barotrauma, in contradistinction to volutrauma, is the appropriate term to describe these observations is currently controversial. VILI also encompasses the cytokine-, complement-, and cell-mediated immunity pathways that result in proinflammatory ...
