(1) By presenting the case history of a man who successively developed facial and trigeminal neural dysfunction after Mohs chemosurgery of a PCSCC, this paper documents histologically the occurrence of such neural invasion, and illustrates the utility of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance scanning in patient management.
(2) This study compared the non-invasive vascular profiles, coagulation tests, and rheological profiles of 46 consecutive cases of low-tension glaucoma with 69 similarly unselected cases of high-tension glaucoma and 47 age-matched controls.

(5) Thirty had an in situ tumor (mean age: 30 years) and 34 had an invasive adenocarcinoma (mean age: 45 years), 7 of whom died of their cancer.
(6) This case is unusual in that it demonstrated no malignant epithelium beyond that of a borderline tumor, but met the criteria of malignancy because of its invasiveness and metastasis.
(7) In invasive epidermoid carcinoma, the accuracy with the self-collected specimens approached the physician-scraped specimens.

(10) Subsequent radiological follow-up demonstrated the rapid growth of the tumor hence exhibiting a very invasive form.
(11) The circle rate correlated with the extent of mural invasion.
(12) Minimal breast cancer should include lobular carcinoma in situ (lobular neoplasia) and ductal carcinoma in situ regardless of nodal status, and (tentatively) invasive carcinoma smaller than 1 cm in total diameter, if axillary lymph nodes are not involved.
(13) The diagnosis of meningeal cyst was confirmed in a non-invasive way by MRI showing a mass with the same signal intensities as CSF on both T1 and T2 weighted images.
