Asherman’s syndrome (AS) is characterized by intrauterine adhesion or fibrosis resulting from damage to the endometrium, often leading to amenorrhea, infertility, or recurrent pregnancy loss. Although various therapeutic strategies for AS have been proposed, the options remain limited. New strategies such as bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell (BM-MSC) therapy aim to potentiate the intrinsic capacity of endometrial regeneration. However, BM-MSC therapy has not been widely adopted mainly because it involves invasive and expensive procedures such as bone marrow biopsy and cell storing. On the other hand, platelet...

Vulvar malignancies are rare and have diverse origins and presentations. The majority of these tumors are squamous cell carcinoma. An ulcerating vulvar tumor was found in a 74-yr-old woman presenting with fatigue and leukocytosis. Tumor biopsy revealed infiltration of blastoid cells from myeloid origin. Through bone marrow aspiration chronic myelomonocytic leukemia was diagnosed, of which the vulvar tumor was a rare extramedullary disease manifestation termed myeloid sarcoma. Limited palliative treatment was instated with a focus on the patient’s quality of life. Myeloid sarcoma (chloroma; granulocytic sarcoma) is a ...

We present an unusual case of liver involvement in monoclonal gammopathy with generalized crystal-storing histiocytosis (G-CSH).A bone marrow storage disease was diagnosed in a 79-year-old man with monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance (MGUS). The patient presented with pleural effusion, an osteolytic lesion of the humerus, and an increase of aspartate transaminase and cholestatic markers that raised the clinical suspect of liver disease. A second bone marrow biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of MGUS with a histiocytic component suggestive for G-CSH.Liver biopsy showed an unremarkable histology, no significant infla...

ConclusionsAfter breast-conserving surgery, approximately 90% of local recurrences emerge in close proximity to the initial tumor bed, potentially reflecting a  significant contribution of the tumor bed to relapse. Our data show that IORT, besides the proven effect on breast cancer cells, efficiently modifies the tumor environment by having an impact on tumor bed bASC. This effect on tumor bed stromal cells might contribute to reduce the risk of tumor rel apse and metastases.

In conclusion, AIHA can co-exist with various NHLs and the defining clinical characteristic of AIHA/NHL is the high incidence of LBMI. However, both BMS and BMB should be performed to avoid missed diagnosis.

The existing data with regard to immune-related neutropenia (irN), a rare (incidence—1%) immune-related adverse event of immune checkpoint inhibitors, are scarce. Eight patients with irN were identified through internal databases of 3 participating Israeli cancer centers. In addition, 11 original articles focusing on the clinical course of 24 patients with irN were selected during the PubMed search. Descriptive analysis of clinical and pathologic factors related to irN was performed (n=32); the effect of these on the irN outcomes was assessed. An algorithm for irN evaluation and treatment was proposed. The median tim...
