Mature B-cell neoplasms arise in B-cells that have entered germinal centers within lymph nodes as part of the immune response. They display great heterogeneity at the clinical, pathologic, and genet...
Sinus node dysfunction refers to a number of conditions producing physiologically inappropriate atrial rates. Symptoms may be minimal or include weakness, palpitations, and syncope. Diagnosis is by ...
A randomised study finds that surgical removal of the lymph nodes surrounding a melanoma tumour after a positive lymph node biopsy (melanoma found in node) does not improve survival. The study will l...
Prof Garbe talks to ecancertv at ASCO 2015 about a randomised study which found that surgical removal of the lymph nodes surrounding a melanoma tumour after a positive lymph node biopsy (melanoma foun...
No benefit of axillary lymph node evaluation has been shown for women with DCIS, yet this lymph node analysis is still often performed in these patients.
In this interview we discuss the current guidelines for lymph node staging in breast cancer and dive into the debate surrounding sentinel node biopsies.
Performing a complete lymph node dissection does not improve survival for melanoma patients who underwent a sentinel node biopsy.
Not every melanoma needs a sentinel lymph node biopsy, and not every positive biopsy needs full dissection. Medscape Medical News
Contrary to NCCN and ASCO guidelines, some women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) are undergoing axillary lymph node assessment. Why? Medscape Medical News
Researchers discover that the accepted theory of how Yersinia pestis microbes travel from fleabite to lymph node is off base. Most bacteria get trapped in a bottleneck and never make it to the lymph n...
Tuberculosis is still the leading opportunistic infection among human immunodeficiency virus-seropositive patients, extra pulmonary tuberculosis is more common than the pulmonary tuberculosis, lymph n...
Mycobacterium tuberculosis infections are uncommon complications in the haematopoietic stem cell post-transplant period. Most cases are reactivations of latent infections affecting the lung. We presen...
The surgical treatment of localized breast cancer has become progressively less aggressive over the years. The management of the axillary lymph nodes has been modified by the introduction of sentinel ...
Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is based on the hypothesis that the sentinel lymph node (SLN) reflects the lymph-node status and a negative SLN might allow complete axillary lymph node dissection (A...
Accurate clinical or pretreatment stage classification of lung cancer leads to optimal treatment outcomes and improved prognostication. Such classification requires an accurate assessment of the clini...
