Burkitt lymphoma (BL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) account for nearly all pediatric nonlymphoblastic B-cell lymphomas. Because clinical behavior, prognosis, and response to therapy might differ, diagnostic accuracy is important. Morphologic examination often is sufficient, but occasionally, diagnostic ancillary studies are required. In adults, immunophenotyping is useful; however, pediatric ...

To define the histologic, cytogenetic (CG) and clinical spectrum of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) carrying an 8q24 (c-myc) translocation, 87 patients with an 8q24 aberration were identified from 785 consecutive successfully analyzed cases. Aberrations involving 8q24 were found at diagnosis (n = 66) or at relapse/progression (n = 21). Histologically, Burkitt-like ...

Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) can identify chromosomal translocations on fixed archival tissue, but studies cross-validating the utility of FISH on lesions of different cell lineages that harbor similar translocations (e.g. those involving anaplastic lymphoma kinase [ALK]) have not been published. Our objective was to define the diagnostic utility, performance ...

Diagnostic difficulties sometimes arise in distinguishing anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) from Hodgkin disease (HD), especially the syncytial variant. Study of the biologic features of diagnostic Reed-Sternberg cells in HD, in search of specific markers for Reed-Sternberg cells, has suggested fascin as a relatively specific and sensitive marker. We studied ...
