    Objective: The aim of this study is to determine differences of levels of empathy among undergraduates in each year of their four-year programs of physiotherapy. Methods: During the 2014-2015 academic school year, 381 physiotherapy students were enlisted from two universities in Istanbul, one a foundation and the other a government university. The Turkish version of the Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy was administered. Students were asked to indicate interest in particular physiotherapy specialties as well as their region of origin in Turkey. The Kruskal-Wallis analysis was used to determine differences among the four study years, and also to measure relationships between specialty interest, home-region, and empathy scores of the students. Empathy scores were also compared according to gender. Results: The difference of empathy scores between the students of the two universities was borderline significant (p=0.057). Empathy scores in both universities increased to a significant degree after school entrance and decreased in the final year. Levels of empathy did not change according to gender, specialty interest, or home-region (p=0.722, 0.524, and 0.309, respectively). Conclusions: This study points to the need for physiotherapy curricula that would enhance empathy and give students practice in exhibiting this valuable attribute. Additional studies are needed that would include larger study populations and track the same students year by year as to how and why their empathy levels change during their training.

    A Rare Case: Mucous Membrane Plasmacytosis in the Larynx
    (2014-07-01) BÜYÜKPINARBAŞILI, NUR; ÇOBAN, GANİME; GÜCİN, ZÜHAL; Meriç, Ayşenur; BÜYÜKPINARBAŞILI, NUR; ÇOBAN, GANİME; GÜCİN, ZÜHAL
    Mucous membrane plasmacytosis is a rare reactive process characterized by plasma cell infiltration of mucous membranes for unknown reasons. It may be confused with malignancy because of its exophytic structure and pavement appereances. A laryngeal polypoid lesion was sent to the pathology department, clinically called fibroma, and presented to emphasize the diagnostic and differential diagnostic criteria.

    Immunoexpression of TTF-1 in Non-Lung Tumors
    (2014-12-01T00:00:00Z) TOSUNER, ZEYNEP; ARICI, Dilek Sema; GÜCİN, ZÜHAL; BÜYÜKPINARBAŞILI, NUR; SÖNMEZ, FATMA CAVİDE; YILDIZ, PELİN; TOSUNER, ZEYNEP; ARICI, DILEK SEMA; GÜCİN, ZÜHAL; BÜYÜKPINARBAŞILI, NUR; SÖNMEZ, FATMA CAVİDE; YILDIZ, PELİN
    Objective: Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) immunoexpression is frequently determined in small-cell lung carcinomas, as well as primary lung adenocarcinomas. While dealing with metastatic carcinomas, TTF-1 immunoexpression is a significant indicator of primary lung carcinomas. Recent studies have revealed that TTF-1 immunoexpression is also defined in non-lung cancers, such as squamous cell carcinomas of different sites and certain neuroendocrine tumors. The verified data obtained from these studies indicate that a straightforward diagnosis of primary lung carcinoma in cases with positive TTF-1 immunoexpression can cause diagnostic contradictions. The aim of our study is to investigate the immunoexpression status of TTF-1 in common non-lung tumors. Methods: A total of 85 cases that were diagnosed in our institute between the years 2011-2012 were included in our study. After a review of the pathological slides prepared from these tumors [colon adenocarcinoma (n: 15), renal cell carcinoma (n: 15), prostate adenocarcinoma (n: 15), invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma (n: 15), invasive ductal carcinoma of breast (n: 15), and neuroendocrine tumors (n: 10)] TTF-1 immunohistochemistry was applied. Semiquantative evaluation based on the distribution and intensity of the staining was performed by two pathologists, respectively. Results: Positive immunostaining was evident in only 1 case of colon adenocarcinoma out of 85 cases. Conclusion: Our study demonstrated that TTF-1 immunoexpression is a very rare finding (1%) in non-lung tumors. This result provides that anti-TTF-1 is a reliable antibody in the interpretation of primary lung carcinomas. In fact, further studies with a large number of cases are needed to confirm the sensitivity and specificity of TTF-1.
