In recent years, it has become increasingly evident that hematological malignancies can alter their microenvironment, but the therapeutic implications of these changes and potential targets have not been well characterized. Recent findings now describe how sympathetic neuropathy can drive malignant transformation of the hematopoietic stem cell niche in hematopoietic malignancies.

The diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) might be difficult, in particular in endemic areas where different species of Leishmania can cause lesions of very similar appearance and where other skin diseases with similar clinical symptoms occur. Even today, the parasitological diagnosis of CL remains the gold standard and it is ...
