Enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma: An extremely rare cause of chronic diarrhoea.

Chronic diarrhoea in tropical countries may be due to a myriad of causes from infective to non-infective. This case report illustrates the challenges faced in the investigation of a middle-age Chinese...

Protein-losing enteropathy with entestinal lymphangiectasia in skeletal dysplasia with Lys650Met mutation.

Protein-losing enteropathy is a primary or secondary manifestation of a group of conditions, and etiologies which are broadly divisible into those with mucosal injury on the basis of inflammatory and ...

Methotrexate and etanercept-induced primary cutaneous CD4 positive small/medium-sized pleomorphic T-cell lymphoma.

Immunosuppressive drugs and biological agents may represent a potential risk of lymphoma development in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. But most cases are diffuse, large B-cell lymphomas. Primary ...

Does magnetically assisted capsule endoscopy improve small bowel capsule endoscopy completion rate? A randomised controlled trial.

Delayed gastric emptying is a significant factor in incomplete small bowel capsule examinations. Gastric transit could be hastened by external magnetic control of the capsule. We studied the feasibili...

An Abundance of Polyps: An Intriguing Case of Lymphomatous Polyposis.

Multiple lymphomatous polyposis (MLP) is a rare condition in which non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), typically mantle cell lymphoma, presents as multiple mucosal polyps of the intestine. We present the case...

Plasma Citrulline Concentration in Tropical Enteropathy

Citrulline is an amino acid produced in the intestine and in the liver, but the liver does not contribute significantly to circulating citrulline concentrations. The intestine is thus the ...

Trial of Wireless Capsule Endoscopy in the Evaluation of Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding

This study compares wireless capsule endoscopy (patients swallow a pill-size camera that sends pictures of the intestine to a recorder worn on their belt) to an x-ray study (called dedicat...

Performance Evaluation of Capsule Endoscopy in the Diagnosis of Gluten Sensitive Enteropathy (MA-23)

The purpose of this study is to determine how well capsule endoscopy identifies changes in the small bowel mucosa of celiac disease patients.

A Study for Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas

In this study, all patients will get investigational drug. There will be no comparator drug. This study will evaluate three tumor types: T-cell lymphoma, Indolent B-cell lymphoma, and A...

EnteroCT With Enteroclysis Versus Enterography-MRI for the Diagnosis of Tumors of the Small Intestine: a Pilot Study

Early diagnosis of tumors of the small intestine is a challenge for clinicians and for radiologists. The detection of tumors of the small intestine is a field in which the video capsule en...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A primary peripheral T-cell lymphoma in the gastrointestinal tract, most often in the jejunum, associated with a history of CELIAC DISEASE or other gastrointestinal diseases.

A condition that is caused by HYPERPLASIA of LYMPHOCYTES in the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL) and the mesenteric LYMPH NODES. These lymphocytes produce an anomalous alpha heavy chain protein. Generally, these IPSID patients have either concurrent LYMPHOMA or develop lymphoma within a few years. The disease was first described in the Mediterranean region and is characterized by malabsorption; WEIGHT LOSS; DIARRHEA; and STEATORRHEA.

A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1).

B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.

Malignant lymphoma characterized by the presence of immunoblasts with uniformly round-to-oval nuclei, one or more prominent nucleoli, and abundant cytoplasm. This class may be subdivided into plasmacytoid and clear-cell types based on cytoplasmic characteristics. A third category, pleomorphous, may be analogous to some of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, PERIPHERAL) recorded in both the United States and Japan.
