Recurrence of lymphoma with isolated pericardial mass: a case report

ConclusionsPatients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma have an aggressive clinical course, but cardiac involvement is very rare. In our patient ’s case, pericardial involvement was observed after treatment and scanning revealed that recurrence took place in an area different from the pericardium. Cooperation of clinicians and pathologists and rapid evaluation are very important in cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma relapse. Although a tumoral invasion of the pericardium mostly suggests secondary malignancies, it should be kept in mind that recurrence of lymphoma is also possible.

Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is a very rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma with extremely short doubling time that tends to affect children in the jaws. Here we report the case of a 6-year-old male patient who attended emergency service because of jaw pain, swelling, and dental mobility for 20 days. Biopsy was performed, and the diagnosis of BL was established. The patient was immediately admitted at the oncohematology center of a pediatric institute for treatment onset. Admission examination revealed generalized lymphadenopathy, sagittal sinus thrombosis, and multiple tumoral infiltration in sphenoidal and maxillary sinuses, liver, lung, ...

We report a case of a 14-year-old female patient who was referred after complaining of pain, bleeding, and swelling on the right side of the maxilla. Computed tomography showed a solid mass over the entire region, reaching the maxillary sinus and nasal cavity. An incisional biopsy was performed, which revealed large areas of lymphoid proliferation containing small- to medium-sized immature-appearing cells with scarce cytoplasm.

Abstract Lymphoblastic lymphoma (LBL) is a type of non Hodgkin's lymphoma. It is highly malignant and aggressive. Most patients have poor prognosis. Extramedullary involvement of B-LBL is very common, and the most vulnerable tissues are skin, bone, and soft tissues. Primary renal B-LBL is rarely reported. In this article, we report an 8-year-old boy who was admitted to hospital due to abdominal pain and vomiting. He was diagnosed with B lymphoblastoma by CT guided renal biopsy and bone marrow puncture. We review the clinical characteristics and diagnosis and treatment process of this case.

Abstract Burkitt lymphoma is a rare, highly aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma with increasing incidence. Here we present a 26-year-old man with a history of a recent root canal who presented with 2 days of black, tarry stools, persistent tooth pain, and 2 weeks of fatigue, night sweats, and a 20-pound weight loss. He developed massive hematemesis while hospitalized and an esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed innumerable, doughnut-shaped masses with central umbilication throughout the stomach, which were also the source of bleeding. Targeted biopsies revealed Burkitt lymphoma. After prompt chemotherapy treatment, repe...

CONCLUSION: Neurosensory retina detachments may be an initial manifestation of large B-cell lymphoma as a consequence of a pro-inflammatory state involving the chorioretinal structures, thus adding steroid treatment could be useful for its resolution.

Conclusion: Herein, for the first time, we describe a patient who developed LPL as a secondary malignancy after administration of TKIs for the treatment of CML. Our observations indicate the importance of awareness of this secondary malignancy that can develop in CML patients treated with TKIs.

We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...

ConclusionsThis study is one of the first to apply the EORTC QLU-C10D to a heterogeneous group of cancer patients. Results can be used to more efficiently target care towards factors influencing HRQoL. Furthermore, it enhances our understanding of how the EORTC QLU-C10D performs across cancer types, supporting its use in cost –utility analyses.
