Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma with a consistent MYC translocation. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been associated with BL at different frequencies, depending on the clinical variant and geographic regions. This is a large-scale study of BL in Brazil, including 234 patients from 5 geographic regions that ...

We report 3 cases of 3 types of thoracic amyloidosis (tracheobronchial amyloidosis, nodular parenchymal amyloidosis, and lymph node amyloidosis) with an emphasis on computed tomographic features. Thoracic amyloidosis is a rare disease, but we think it is important to know its different types and understand how it manifests itself to ...

Changes in the definition of lymphocyte-depleted classic Hodgkin lymphoma (LDcHL) have recently led to reclassification of many cases as other pleomorphic lymphomas. We have set out to identify LD cases in our cohort of cHL patients and determine their clinical and biological characteristics properties. We defined the morphologic picture of ...

BACKGROUND: Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) is an exfoliative dermatitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus infection. In contrast to infants, it is rarely observed in adults. SSSS in adults usually occurs in predisposed individuals such as those with renal failure or immunodeficiency, but has also been reported in otherwise healthy subjects. ...

Splenic marginal zone lymphoma (SMZL), characterized in the WHO classification of lymphoid tumors, is a rare disorder comprising less than 1% of lymphoid neoplasms; only a few series concerning this entity have been published. Although this type of lymphoma is well defined histologically, its histogenesis remains obscure. Moreover, specific biological ...

Granulomatous slack skin disease (GSS) is a very rare form of T-cell lymphoma, with only 52 cases reported in the literature. In the recent World Health Organization-European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer consensus classification GSS is considered to be a variant of mycosis fungoides. We describe a patient ...

PURPOSE: Standards for the reporting of radiotherapy details in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are lacking. Although radiotherapy (RT) is an important component of curative therapy for Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), we postulated that RT reporting may be inadequate in Phase III HL and NHL trials. METHODS AND ...

The gastrointestinal tract is the most common extranodal site of lymphoma, and the most common gastrointestinal lymphoma is diffuse large B-cell type (DLBCL). DLBCL can be separated into germinal centre (GCP) and non-germinal centre phenotypes (non-GCP) using CD10, BCL-6 and MUM1 immunohistochemistry, but primary gastrointestinal DLBCL has not been extensively ...

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma composed of CD30-positive cells. Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) -1 positive ALCL frequently involves both lymph nodes and extranodal sites. While primary extranodal involvement of ALK-1 negative ALCL is rare, this case is unique in that it is a case ...

Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) is a solvent commonly used for the cryopreservation of autologous peripheral blood stem cells (APBSC). Side effects upon infusion of DMSO-cryopreserved APBSC mainly consist of nausea, emesis, chills, rigors, and cardiovascular events, such as bradyarrhythmia or hypotension. We report the case of a patient who received DMSO-cryopreserved APBSC ...

We have had a recent spurt in cases of AIDS-related lymphoma (ARL) at our centre. Most of these cases are aggressive mature B cell lymphomas, mainly plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Most of the PBL are extranodal in location and are mucosa-based. We reviewed the morphological ...

Urinothorax is a rather rare cause of pleural effusion and its potential mechanism is urinary tract obstruction or trauma that results in urine leakage and accumulation inside the pleural space. Patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma could present with pleural effusion due to mediastinal lymphadenopathy or extrathoracic manifestation such as urinary tract ...

The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between endodontic clinical signs and symptoms and the presence of Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola, and Tannerella forsythia or their association by nested polymerase chain reaction assay. Microbial samples were taken from 50 cases with necrotic pulp tissues in primary infections. ...

Because it is difficult to differentiate gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma from chronic gastritis in gastric lymphoid infiltrates, molecular detection of monoclonality through immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) gene rearrangements is commonly performed. However, heterogeneity in the performance and results obtained from IgH gene rearrangements has been reported. To improve ...
