Emergence of a lymphoma imitating an infectious infiltration surrounding the infrarenal aorta after EVAR.

We present a case of an appearance of periaortic infiltration after successful endovascular treatment which turned out to be of malignant origin. PMID: 31271346 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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...

Patients with either relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia treated with CAR NK cells had a response without the development of cytokine release syndrome, neurotoxicity, or graft-versus-host disease.

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...

AbstractAutologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) is an effective treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). However, recent supply issues and toxicity of carmustine have necessitated a new conditioning regimen. We conducted a multicenter, phase II study of BEB (busulfan, etoposide, and bendamustine) conditioning regimen for ASCT in patients with NHL. Thirty-one patients were enrolled and underwent ASCT with the BEB conditioning regimen. The most common subtype was diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (n = 23, 74.2%). Nine patients (29.0%) had a history of relapse, and 18 patients (58.1%) received more than 2 lines of c...

Neurolymphomatosis (NL) is a devastating complication of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) with significant morbidity. It was first described by Baehring et al in 2003 as the direct infiltration of the cranial and peripheral nervous systems by lymphoma cells (1). It is a rare clinical entity, affecting approximately 0.2% of all NHL patients (2). Most cases are due to B-cell NHL (3). Although typically a hallmark of disease progression, it can also be the presenting symptom of a new diagnosis. When this occurs, it is referred to as “Primary NL” (1).

We report a 72-year-old man who presented to the dermatology clinic for an 11-year history of edematous legs, occasionally associated with ulcerations. The findings developed within a year of intrapelvic non-Hodgkin lymphoma and progressed gradually over 10 years after lymphoma remission. Physical examination revealed atypical features including compressible cysts and pitting edema extending from the lower legs to the thighs bilaterally. The patient was noncompliant for the recommended compressive devices...

CONCLUSIONS: Although pSS is associated with a higher risk of developing NHL, the risk of NHL appears to have decreased compared with that in previous studies. Our study suggests that the risk of NHL or thyroid cancer with SS is not higher than that reported in previous studies. PMID: 31969226 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma occurs at extranodal sites in approximately 27% of cases, with skin being the second most common site of extranodal involvement [1]. Cutaneous lymphomas (CLs) are divided into two categories as follows: CL in a narrow sense, so-called primary cutaneous lymphoma (PCL), and systemic lymphoma with skin involvement, known as secondary cutaneous lymphoma (SCL). Both PCL and SCL include a variety of subtypes. As PCL and SCL are rare disease entities, they are difficult to study on a large scale.
