Caption: Figure 3: This graphic represents 8 other causes for spot sign on CTA, vascular mimickers
(fibrin globules, micro-arteriovenous malformation (micro-AVM), aneurysm, microvascular aneurysm, Moyamoya, and pial arteriovenous fistula) and nonvascular mimickers
(tumor and choroid plexus calcification).
According to recent evidence, brachyury represents a unique specific diagnostic marker for chordoma, helpful to differentiate this tumour from all of its histological mimickers
. Indeed it was shown that most of axial and skull-base chordomas--ranging between 89.7% and 100%, according to the study [4, 8, 9]--including dedifferentiated and metastatic ones display nuclear expression for brachyury (Figure 1(a)) [6-11], with the absence of staining occasionally observed in some conventional and chondroid cases [8, 9] presumably depending upon inadequate fixation in the material and poor antibody penetration .
What scientists do know is that estrogen mimickers
and endocrine disruptors found in our drinking water supply can have profound effects on humans, interfering with the synthesis, secretion, binding, and action of natural hormones.

Accurate tissue diagnosis can be very challenging due to the presence of either a small focus of cancer or due to the presence of many benign mimickers
of malignancy like adenosis.
