DOI:

Pages: 
35–8
Synopsis: 
The average annual perinatal autopsy rate at the University Hospital of the West Indies is 54%, well below the internationally recommended rate of 75%. Failure to request an autopsy is the most significant factor contributing to this.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: High perinatal autopsy rates are necessary for institutional management protocols and national policy-making. This study reviews perinatal autopsy rates and factors affecting these rates at the University Hospital of the West Indies.

A Review of Granular Cell Tumours at the University Hospital of the West Indies: 1965–2006

Issue: 
Pages: 
138–41
Synopsis: 
An analysis of granular cell tumours confirmed their uncommon occurrence. However, many more lesions than expected, developed in the breast and vulva compared to the tongue which is the most commonly reported location.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Granular cell tumours are uncommon lesions that occur in a wide variety of sites. They are usually benign, but as they are infrequently diagnosed preoperatively, they may be confused clinically with malignant lesions. The objective of this study was to assess the relative frequency and the clinicopathologic characteristics of granular cell tumours identified at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) over a 41-year period.
