Stage IV Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma-type Posttransplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder in a Pediatric Liver Transplant Patient: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

We describe a successfully diagnosed and treated CHL-PTLD stage IV pediatric patient, 8 years after liver transplantation. The patient was treated with standard CHL (Children’s Cancer Group 5942 group 3) chemotherapy, rituximab and reduction of immunosuppressant. The patient remains in complete remission after 3 years with stable graft function. To our best knowledge, this is the first pediatric case report of a successfully treated stage IV CHL-PTLD after a liver transplant.

AbstractHealth-related quality of life (HRQoL) is a multidimensional concept including physical, emotional, social, and cognitive functions, disease symptoms, and side effects of treatment. Differences in HRQoL due to gender, existence of comorbidities, and number of chemotherapy cycles are little explored in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) survivors. Our objective was to investigate whether differences in HRQoL in function of these factors exist 1 year after the diagnosis of DLBCL. One hundred and one patients, enrolled in the RT3 (Real-Time Tailored Therapy) Study, answered self-administrated European Organization ...

This article presents a review of Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. These two common haematology diagnoses are frequently suspected by GPs and non-cancer professionals, and subsequently treated by haematologists and chemotherapy outpatient departments across the country. It is therefore important for all health professionals, including nurses in all settings, to be aware of the main characteristics of both of these lymphomas. There are strong similarities and striking differences between the disease processes, the presenting symptoms, prognostics and treatment pathways. The age of presentation in each is markedly ...

Background: Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are a rare group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas that present in skin. The most studied subtypes, mycosis fungoides (MF) and S ézary syndrome (SS), together represent around two-thirds of all cases. MF/SS disease staging is multi-compartmental utilising a modified TNMB classification. Leukemic involvement in MF/SS has previously been found to be an independent prognostic factor affecting overall survival, disease-specific survival and increasing risk of disease progression (Agar 2010, Am Soc J Clin Oncol), although further research is ongoing.

Cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL) is a non-Hodgkin lymphoma characterized by malignant skin-homing T cells with an increasing bias towards the T helper cell type 2 (Th2) during disease progression. Patients with advance CTCL have a high disease burden and the majority of CTCL patients suffer from severe itching (pruritus). A key challenge in the treatment of advanced CTCL is to maintain and to stabilize initial therapeutic responses after systemic treatment. Addressing this clinical need, the oral class I, IIb, IV HDAC inhibitor resminostat is currently under clinical evaluation for disease control after systemic therapy (R...

Prolonged complete remissions (CRs) are rare in advanced-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs). Ifosfamide + etoposide (I+E) have been used to treat lymphomas, combined with platinum-based agents in Hodgkin disease or non-Hodgkin lymphomas including peripheral T-cell lymphomas. Monoclonal antibodies have induced long-term remissions in CTCL but are usually poorly effective in transformed disease Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT) holds a potential for cure but relies on the existence of a pretransplant CR, which may require the use of chemotherapeutic regimens.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBreast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a rare but emerging T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It has two distinct subtypes, "effusion-only" or "mass-forming" disease, arising around implants in patients with in situ or previous history of textured-surface breast implants. The clinical, histopathological and imaging features are unique and nuanced as compared to primary breast malignancy and other lymphoma categories. Prompt recognition and diagnosis triggers referral t...
