The revised European-American classification of lymphoid neoplasms has been reported as reproducible among expert pathologists and feasible in a community setting. We evaluated the reproducibility of lymphoid neoplasm diagnoses between a community and an academic center. We subtyped 188 lymphoid neoplasms using revised European-American classification criteria. Clinical findings, histologic or ...

We retrospectively reviewed our experience with the fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) diagnosis of primary and recurrent lymphoma to assess the ability of cytomorphology with and without ancillary flow cytometry (FCM) analysis to diagnose and subclassify these tumors according to the Revised European-American Lymphoma/World Health Organization classifications. We reviewed 139 consecutive ...

Intravascular lymphoma (IVL) is a rare aggressive disease characterised by the presence of lymphoma cells only in the lumina of small vessels, particularly capillaries. Only about 200 cases have been reported in the world (some of them retrospectively). IVL is predominantly of B-cell lineage origin but occasionally T-cell lineage occurs. ...

Non-Hodgkin lymphomas associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome are heterogeneous. Recently, a novel subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma occurring mostly in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome has been described and designated as plasmablastic lymphoma. The histomorphologic and immunophenotypic findings of this distinct subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma have been characterized previously. Most patients ...

Selecting the appropriate approach for resection and follow-up of pheochromocytomas (PCCs) is highly dependent upon reliable localization and exclusion of multifocal, bilateral, or metastatic disease. Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy was developed for functional localization of catecholamine-secreting tissues. Somatostatin receptor imaging (SRI) has a high sensitivity for localizing head and neck paragangliomas, ...

Paraneoplastic pemphigus is a severe mucocutaneous disease associated in most cases with B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders. Independent of the course of the underlying malignancy, this autoimmune skin disease is resistant to any treatment in most cases and may lead to death by infectious complications. We observed a patient with recovery of ...

Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas are increasingly recognized as a distinct clinical-pathologic entity among the non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. It usually presents as a localized disease process in extranodal tissues or organs such as stomach, salivary gland, thyroid gland, and not infrequently in orbital adnexa. Radiotherapy has an important role in the ...

We report a non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma arising adjacent to a chronically infected revision total hip arthroplasty presenting as malignant hypercalcemia 12 years after original implantation. We believe that this is only the fifth case of lymphoma associated with a metal implant to be reported in the English literature.

A purpuric eruption may be an unusual early manifestation of mycosis fungoides (MF). On the other hand, persistent pigmented purpuric dermatoses (PPPD) may, occasionally, evolve to cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Coexistence of these two conditions has been reported, but it is extremely rare. We present the case of an elderly woman ...

Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TO) is a rare disorder with unknown aetiology. We report one case of TO in a patient with non-Hodgkin pulmonary lymphoma and benign epidermal and trichylemmal cysts on the periorbital region and scalp. To the authors' knowledge, the coincidence of these processes has never been described before. The ...

It has been considered that gastric large B cell lymphoma mainly consists of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (MALToma) with large cell transformation. However, debate continues about the cell lineage. We analyzed 61 operated cases of gastric B cell lymphoma, mainly focusing on 40 cases of diffuse large cell lymphoma (DLCL). ...

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with haemophagocytic syndrome (BCL-HS) has been reported mainly in Asia and is regarded as a distinct variant of intravascular lymphoma (IVL). However, it is unclear whether all cases of BCL-HS fall within the framework of IVL and available clinical information is limited. We analysed 25 cases ...

We report a case of an aggressive variant of splenic marginal-zone lymphona (SMZL) with circulating villous lymphocytes. The karyotype of all examined cells had multiple structural and numerical abnormalities, including two lymphoma characteristic translocations, t(2;8)(p12;q24) and t(14;18)(q32;q21). Based on a literature review of cytogenetic aberrations of splenic lymphoma with villous ...

Until now, few data on additional chromosomal aberrations in t(11;14)-positive mantle cell lymphomas (MCLs) have been published. We analyzed 39 t(11;14)-positive MCLs by either comparative genomic hybridization (CGH; n = 8), fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with a set of DNA probes detecting the most frequent aberrations in B-cell neoplasms ...

Lymph node fine needle aspiration (LNFNA) cytology is valuable in solving the diagnostic problems of clinical adenopathy. The usefulness of the procedure in the staging and diagnosis of various malignant and lymphoproliferative tumours, as well as its role in distinguishing reactive hyperplastic lymph nodes from lymphoma, has been documented in ...

Angioimmunoblastic Lymphadenopathy with Dysproteinemia (AILD) is a rare benign reactive process which often follows exposure to certain drugs such as penicillin. Treatment with corticosteroids usually reverses the process, however there have been reports of 18% of cases evolving into non-Hodgkins lymphoma. In our case report, we present a relatively healthy ...

In this report, the illustrations from the original papers on Hodgkin's disease are used to trace its early history. Thomas Hodgkin's report included six cases of his own and a seventh given to him by Robert Carswell, whose beautiful colored pictures of the latter case accompanied Hodgkin's presentation. Early clinical ...

The most cases of splenic marginal zone lymphoma (SMZL) seem to respond favorably to splenectomy. The diagnosis of this lymphoma is mainly based on the recognition of a micronodular pattern of splenic involvement with marginal zone differentiation. However, it is possible to find so-called "marginal zone differentiation" in splenic involvement ...
