Core Needle Biopsy Targeting the Viable Area of Deep-Sited Dominant Lesion Verified by Color Doppler and/or Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Contribute to the Actionable Diagnosis of the Patients Suspicious of Lymphoma

ConclusionViable-Targeting US-CNB was superior to routine US-CNB in term of the yield of actionable diagnosis for deep-sited dominant lesions suspicious of lymphoma, which demonstrated a potential to be the initial approach in this setting.

CONCLUSION: As far as we know from the literature, this is the largest mesenteric fibromatosis tumour ever to be excised. We also noticed that this is the first reported case of the concomitant presence of mesenteric fibromatosis and non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is not related to any of the described risk factors. Further research is needed to establish what type of association this presentation may indicate. PMID: 32644849 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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 ...

AbstractBurkitt lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive, rapidly growing B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which manifests in several subtypes including sporadic, endemic, and immunodeficiency-associated forms. Pathologically, BL is classically characterized by translocations of chromosomes 8 and 14 resulting in upregulation of the c-myc protein transcription factor with upregulation of cell proliferation. BL affects nearly every organ system, most commonly the abdomen and pelvis in the sporadic form. Imaging using a multimodality approach plays a crucial role in the management of BL from diagnosis, staging, and evaluation of trea...

This study investigated 18F-FDG PET/CT findings in KFD, and its usefulness for differential diagnosis from non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).Methods: Three groups of patients [10 KFD, 12 indolent lymphoma (IL) and 15 aggressive lymphoma (AL)] underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT scan. Two experienced nuclear medicine physician independently interpreted the images and recorded the areas, size, and SUVmax and SULmax of lymph nodes involved. Possible organ involvements or other hypermetabolic lesions were also analyzed. Some serological indicators were collected.Results: The median age of KFD group was 23 (13-56) years old, with 8 women include...

CONCLUSIONS This case of a low-grade extranodal marginal zone lymphoma on the temporal conjunctiva represents a less common variation of the classic fornix-based presentation. It is not unusual for conjunctival lymphomas to masquerade as another clinical entity, sometimes making the initial diagnosis challenging. If a patient does not respond as expected to conventional therapy, a biopsy to rule out malignancy should be considered.

CONCLUSION:: Sonographic patterns based on high resolution ultrasonography provide early clues to the non-invasive diagnosis of primary cutaneous lymphomas and PET-CT is the recommended modality of imaging for staging and follow-up. ADVANCES IN KNOWLEDGE:: High resolution ultrasound with colour Doppler and PET-CT imaging are complimentary to the clinical diagnosis of primary cutaneous lymphomas.

Conclusion: While providing potential clinical benefit, CAR T cell therapy utilizes resources across the therapeutic spectrum, and increasing use of this therapeutic modality can create challenges in institutional resource capacity. Identifying these resources will allow for better care delivery and allocation of funds. Further refinement of CAR T cell products and improvements in CAR T cell-related toxicity management may permit safer delivery of this therapy and reduce costs per patient. Additional analysis of resource utilization among patients treated with commercial CAR T cell products, as well as comparison with alte...

AbstractRationale:Non-Hodgkin lymphoma remains an unpredictable condition in pediatric patients.Patient concerns:Our first case describes an 8-year-old boy with a history of iron deficiency anemia, admitted in our clinic for recurrent abdominal pain, weight loss, loss of appetite, diarrheic stools, and fever. The second case also describes an 8-year-old boy admitted for abdominal pain and vomiting. The 3rd case refers to a 4 years and 10 months old boy admitted in our clinic with abdominal pain and loss of appetite, who was initially admitted in the Pediatrics Surgery Clinic with the suspicion of appendicitis. Our 4th pati...

This study reports a case of ALCL with multiple extranodal involvement, especially the whole body skeletal muscles, with the aim to share the imaging features of the ALCL including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (18F-FDG PET-CT). Patient concerns: A 54-year-old female patient presented with two-month history of bilateral shoulder pain, which had exacerbated for 6 days prior to admission. MRI scans revealed multiple hyperintense on T2-weighted image (T2WI) and marked inhomogenous diffuse or rim enhancement masses in shoulder muscles. The probab...
