A Case of Primary Malignant Lymphoma of the Prostate Gland Presenting as Right Lower Back Pain and Dysuria.

A Case of Primary Malignant Lymphoma of the Prostate Gland Presenting as Right Lower Back Pain and Dysuria. J Nippon Med Sch. 2018;85(4):236-240 Authors: Yasuoka S, Kimura G, Toyama Y, Moriya K, Takahashi K, Matsuoka R, Shibayama K, Obayashi K, Inoue Y, Shindo T, Iigaya S, Endo Y, Akatsuka J, Hayashi T, Nakayama S, Hamasaki T, Inokuchi K, Kondo Y Abstract A 73-year-old man presented with right lower back pain and dysuria. Right hydronephrosis and a large pelvic large mass were seen on computed tomography (CT). Although his prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was 0.5 ng/mL, an irregularly enlarged, stony, hard prostate was palpable on digital rectal examination. A prostate tumor was suspected, and a transrectal prostate biopsy and right transurethral ureteral stent placement were performed. Histological and immunohistochemical studies revealed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Positron emission tomography-computed tomography showed abnormal uptake in the stomach, cecum, right obturator lymph nodes, para-aortic lymph nodes, and dorsal left kidney. No abnormal findings were seen on bone marrow histology. Clinical stage IVA was confirmed according to Ann Arbor criteria. The patient achieved a complete response after 8 cycles of combination chemotherapy with rituximab, pirarubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone. PMID: 30259894 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractIntroductionMaternal perception of fetal movements has long been considered an indicator of fetal well ‐being. A sudden decrease in the number of fetal movements is suggestive of fetal compromise. We aimed to determine whether the maternal perception of reduced fetal movements (RFM) is associated with placental pathological lesions in a low‐risk term population.Material and methodsOur study was a case ‐control study that was performed in a single university center. Placental histopathology, maternal demographics, labor characteristics, and neonatal outcomes of term, singleton pregnancies with maternal percept...

CONCLUSION: miR-21 and miR-155 promote the progression of Burkitt's lymphoma through PI3K/AKT signaling by targeting C1RL and TCAP. Our findings will provide a novel biomarker and therapeutic strategies for Burkitt's lymphoma. PMID: 32055277 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report on discordant lymphoma consisting of mantle cell lymphoma and angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma. There seems to be no relation these two different kinds of lymphoma, and EBV infection might prompt the development of angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma after transplantation. Rash is a common clinical manifestation when T cell lymphoma develops after treatment for MCL. PMID: 32055275 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: The authors report an unusual case of ruptured jejunal GIST with hemoperitoneum mimicking ovarian carcinoma. Therefore, GIST, in addition to ovarian cancer, should be considered in patients with an increased serum level of CA-125 and an abdominopelvic mass. PMID: 32055272 [PubMed]

In this study, we chose Cytokeratin-pan, GFAP, and LCA as three immunohistochemical indicators. Intraoperative IHC was done by Novodiax ihcDirect technology combined with Leica Bond auto-staining. Compared with the manual method recommended for the reagents (Novodiax ihcDirect), the results show that auto-staining has better stability and high reproducibility in coloration, which has broad prospects for future application.

This study aimed to analyse the features of lymphadenopathy and estimate the role of imaging methods, including computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography-CT (PET/CT), in the diagnosis of lymphadenopathy in patients with POEMS syndrome. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 23 patients with confirmed POEMS syndrome. All of the patients received chest and abdominal CT scan and/or superficial ultrasound examinations. Four patients underwent PET/CT examinations, and 6 patients received lymph node biopsies. Enlarged lymph nodes (short diameter ≥ 1 cm) were found in 48% (11/23) of patients, but only 1 patie...
