This description is distinct from marked pleomorphism amidst otherwise carcinomatous

(2) In the collision theory, carcinomatous
and sarcomatous elements arise independently, whereas the combination theory suggests that both cellular components develop from a single progenitor cell.

Anatomopathological study confirms the diagnosis of sclerosing basal cell carcinoma, with compromised margin in the region adjacent to the nasal root, perineural carcinomatous

(7,9,13) In cases of carcinomatous
pleuritis, large doses of OK-432 at concentrations of 10 KE/10 ml (14) and 5 KE/50 ml (15) have been reported; these large doses were injected so that OK-432 could be dispersed over an extensive area.
