Abstract: Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKTL-NT), is a rare subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma associated with Epstein–Barr virus. This type of lymphoma is rare in Western countries but is more frequent in East Asia and Latin America. ENKTL-NT mostly occurs in the nose and paranasal area, including the upper aerodigestive tract. The skin is the second-most commonly involved organ. ENKTL-ET is characterized by an angiocentric, angiodestructive pattern of growth with ulceration and necrosis evident on histopathological examination. We provide the first description of ENKTL-NT presenting with in...

CONCLUSIONS: Broad-spectrum antibiotics were common in patients with haematological malignancies in Japan; however, antibiotic-resistant bacteria including carbapenem-resistant or multidrug-resistant bacteria were infrequent. Our results provide nationwide, cross-sectional insight into the use of antimicrobial agents, prevalence of bacteria, and antibiotic resistance, demonstrating differences in antimicrobial utilization among different haematological diseases.

In conclusion, our study showed promising efficacy and safety of CAR-T cell therapy in refractory/relapsed B-cell lymphoma involving the GI tract. However, the characteristics of CAR-T–related infection in GI lymphoma should be further clarified to prevent and control infection.

We report a case of primary hyperparathyroidism associated with NHL. The first symptom of this patient was hypercalcemia. Hypercalcemia is the primary first clinical manifestation of primary hyperparathyroidism, while NHL may also be diagnosed by hypercalcemia. Clinically, patients with hypercalcemia as the first symptom should be alert to the coexistence of their two diseases. As primary hyperparathyroidism and NHL occur simultaneously, the relationship between the two diseases requires further study. A review of the literature regarding primary hyperparathyroidism associated with NHL was performed, focusing on clinical p...

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a prevalent site for extranodal lymphomas. Some subtypes of GI tract lymphomas are aggressive and have dismal clinical outcomes. Therefore, prompt histopathologic detection of such types can be very important. We thus introduce a practical approach in the histopathologic diagnosis of GI lymphomas according to the revised World Health Organization (WHO) classification. When lymphocyte proliferation is found in the GI tract, a stepwise approach can help narrow down the differential diagnoses. When considering subtype incidence, macroscopic findings, and microscopic patterns, applying a firs...

Alonso Arana Maruri Larrucea Mature B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL) constitutes a group of heterogeneous malignant lymphoproliferative diseases ranging from indolent to highly aggressive forms. Although the survival after chemo-immunotherapy treatment of mature B-NHL has increased over the last years, many patients relapse or remain refractory due to drug resistance, presenting an unfavorable prognosis. Hence, there is an urgent need to identify new prognostic markers and therapeutic targets. Podocalyxin (PODXL), a sialomucin overexpressed in a variety of tumor cell types and associated with their aggre...
