Primary T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) occurring in the context of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is uncommon. Here, we report and discuss such a case presenting in the rectum, and review relevant literature. Although typical in some respects, the case is, in other ways, somewhat unusual for an AIDS-related NHL ...

We report a case of an 81-year-old immunocompetent Mexican man who underwent an abdominal-perineal rectal resection for a mass clinically thought to be carcinoma. Histopathologic diagnosis revealed classical Hodgkin lymphoma, nodular sclerosis type, involving the rectum. The diagnosis was confirmed by immunohistochemical studies that showed that the neoplastic cells were ...

Primary meningeal lymphoma is a rare occurrence. We present a case of an immunocompetent patient operated on for a fronto-parietal lesion similar to a meningioma, which the histological examination diagnosed as a mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT)-type lymphoma. She received no further post-operative treatment and after 36 months showed no evidence ...

Primary gastric Hodgkin's lymphoma is a rarely encountered lesion. Most cases are observed in the course of systemic disease. Other cases have been reclassified in retrospective studies as non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, after the employment of immunohistochemistry. Some Hodgkin's lymphomas may masquerade non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, and vice versa. Therefore, an accurate diagnosis is ...

BACKGROUND: BCL2 is upregulated in nodal and extranodal B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, with a consequent antiapoptotic effect. However, loss of BCL2 has also been noted in some malignancies, suggesting a different molecular pathogenesis. OBJECTIVES: To investigate genomic and protein expression status of BCL2 and to compare the results with that of ...

The connection between scleroderma and lymphoma is uncommon and its pathogenic relationship is a much debated subject. We describe the case of a patient with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (MALT) of both parotid glands without clinical signs of Sjögren's syndrome who simultaneously developed scleroderma. Independently of the pathogenic mechanism of ...

We reviewed eight cases that were diagnosed before 1995 with B-prolymphocytic leukaemia (B-PLL) harbouring t(11;14)(q13;q32) and/or cyclin D1 staining. Thirteen B-PLL patients without t(11;14) were selected as controls. Peripheral blood, bone marrow and histological sections were re-examined without cytogenetic information. Final diagnosis was made using morphology, cytogenetics, immunophenotype and immunohistochemistry. ...

Primary renal lymphoma (PRL) is a rare form of extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma often diagnosed and treated by oncologists and urologists. Pathophysiological and clinical data on PRL are sparse, but the limited reported experience suggests the disease usually has an ominous outcome. As in other renal tumors, comprehensive radiological investigations have ...

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is more likely to develop in patients with Hodgkin disease (HD) than in the general population. Although reports of synchronous or metachronous HD and NHL are not uncommon in the literature, the biologic relationship of these 2 malignant neoplasms often is unclear. A larger-than-expected fraction of NHLs ...

Nearly all hematologic malignancies can occasionally present with or develop pleural effusions during the clinical course of disease. Among the most common disorders are Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas, with a frequency of 20 to 30%, especially if mediastinal involvement is present. Acute and chronic leukemias, myelodysplastic syndromes, are rarely accompanied ...

EGFR amplification is a frequent genetic alteration in primary (de novo) glioblastomas, and is often associated with structural alterations. Most common is variant III (EGFRvIII), which results from a non-random 801 bp in-frame deletion of exons 2 to 7 of the EGFR gene. We assessed amplification and overexpression of EGFRvIII ...
