ABSTRACT Granulomas in the lung are common diagnostic problems encountered by pathologists. They occur in a wide range of pulmonary conditions, ranging from common entities to uncommon ones and including both infections and non-infectious diseases. This review summarizes the main histological features that help distinguish various granulomatous lung diseases. It concentrates on the most important and common entities that may be encountered and emphasizes helpful features in the differential diagnosis.

    ABSTRACT: Summary form only given. We have demonstrated that the design of the directional-coupler modulator may be synthesized to obtain the desired response functions, so that modulators with high linearity in the response function or with low switching voltage may be realized.

    ABSTRACT: Various alternative congestion avoidance policies have been proposed to overcome the bias of TCP congestion avoidance mechanism against connections with long round trip times (RTT). The policies attempt to provide a fair share of the bottleneck bandwidth for long RTT connections by enabling them to open up their congestion window at a relatively faster rate. However, we show that in cases where connections are traversing slow links or long thin networks (LTNs), such methods can cause excess probing, leading to degradation of performance for that connection. In an attempt to mitigate the detrimental effect of such policies, studies were conducted with limited receiver window and increased last hop router buffer sizes for connections traversing slow links and LTNs. The effect of using the standard. congestion avoidance policy on slow links and LTNs, and using alternate policies on competing connections, was also studied. Finally, methods are suggested to reduce the impact of such policies on connections traversing slow links or LTNs. Experiments were conducted on a testbed setup to study the effect of such fairness policies on slow links and LTNs.
