(10,11) Respiratory bronchiolitis is usually of little clinical consequence and is discovered incidentally in patients undergoing lung wedge biopsy
to evaluate for other forms of lung disease.
Many foci of neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia, the largest was 6 mm in diameter, were detected on the wedge biopsy
specimen taken by video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) [Figure 2].
A wedge biopsy
of the nipple was performed to confirm the initial shave biopsy pathology (Figure 1).
When initial washings did not yield significant amount of secretions, the diagnosis of PAP was questioned and WLL was converted to wedge biopsy
of the lung in the operating room.
A cortical wedge biopsy
of the size 1x0.5x 0.3 [cm.sup.3] of the transplanted kidney was taken immediately after revascularization on completion of vascular anastomosis.
was done and sent for histopathological examination.
Pathological report of the gallbladder and wedge biopsy
of liver hilar mass after immunohistochemistry showed large B-cell lymphoma (positive for CD20+ lymphocytes) and acute chronic cholecystitis [Figure 2, 3, and 4].
We decided to interrupt the Kasai operation and only perform cholecystectomy and wedge biopsy
of the liver.
A wedge biopsy
of the liver was taken for more thorough histologic evaluation.
A penile wedge biopsy
taken for histopathological examination showed features suggestive of a chronic penile ulcer.
from both breasts showed partly ulcerated skin and underlying markedly necrotic squamous cell carcinoma with moderate to poor differentiation (Figure-2).
The Otago University research also Looked at patients within the Green study period, comparing those initially managed with a small, diagnostic punch or wedge biopsy
of the cervix, with patients treated at the outset with procedures including cone biopsy or hysterectomy.
