Unexpected Corpus Callosum Involvement of Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma on FDG PET/CT.

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) was the most frequent subtype of lymphoid malignancy. Corpus callosum involvement of DLBCL was rarely reported. We present a case of DLBCL involving not only lymph nodes and bowels but also corpus callosum, detected by FDG PET/CT in a patient without neurological symptoms. After 4 cycles of systemic and intrathecal chemotherapy, all previously visualized abnor...

Characteristics and outcomes of primary central nervous system lymphoma patients in the real word: a retrospective study of 91 cases in a Chinese population.

Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a rare disease affecting the brain, leptomeninges, spinal cord, cerebrospinal fluid, or vitreoretinal compartment, without evidence of systemic disease. Prognosis is still poor after intensive methotrexate-based chemotherapy.

HIV-associated haematological complications.

Despite recent advances in combined anti- retroviral therapy that have profoundly changed the prognosis of HIV infection, HIV-associated haematological complications remains frequent whatever the stage of the disease. Some types of lymphoma observed a dramatic reduction in their incidences but others such as diffuse B-cell lymphoma and Hodkin lymphoma remain as frequent as before the CART era. Tre...

Primary Vitreoretinal Natural Killer/T-Cell Lymphoma with Breast Involvement: A Case Report and Review of Literature.

A 50-year-old woman developed recurrent vitreous opacities in her left eye. The first diagnostic vitrectomy revealed no significant abnormality. OCT showed multiple high-density reflective nodules. The ratio of Interleukin 6 to 10 was over 1 in her aqueous humor, and Epstein-Barr virus was present. Conventional immunohistochemistry examination of vitrectomy specimens was diffusely positive for CD2...

Lamivudine prophylaxis prevents hepatitis B virus reactivation in anti-HBc positive patients under rituximab for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

A significant proportion of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) negative/anti-hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc) positive patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) undergoing rituximab-based chemotherapy (R-CT) may suffer hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation.

Novel Immunotherapies for T Cell Lymphoma and Leukemia.

Novel immunotherapies such as checkpoint inhibitors, bispecific antibodies, and chimeric antigen receptor T cells are leading to promising responses when treating solid tumors and hematological malignancies. T cell neoplasms include leukemia and lymphomas that are derived from T cells and overall are characterized by poor clinical outcomes. This review describes the rational and preliminary result...

Updated results from the phase 3 HELIOS study of ibrutinib, bendamustine, and rituximab in relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma.

We report follow-up results from the randomized, placebo-controlled, phase 3 HELIOS trial of ibrutinib+bendamustine and rituximab (BR) for previously treated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) without deletion 17p. Overall, 578 patients were randomized 1:1 to either ibrutinib (420 mg daily) or placebo, in combination with 6 cycles of BR, followed by ibrutinib or ...

Burden of illness of follicular lymphoma and marginal zone lymphoma.

Follicular lymphoma (FL) and marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) are two subtypes of indolent B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) that account for approximately 20% and 12% of all NHLs, respectively. FL and MZL are rare conditions with orphan disease designations. We conducted a comprehensive review of the burden of FL and MZL that encompasses the epidemiological, real world clinical, economic, and humanis...

Multimodal imaging evaluation of a primary cardiac lymphoma in an immunocompetent patient.

Primary cardiac lymphoma (PCL) is a rare extranodal lymphoma that involves only the heart and/or pericardium. It is fatal in the absence of a prompt diagnosis and adequate therapy. Here, we report an immunocompetent 55-year-old Chinese man with palpitations and occasional chest distress for 1 month. Multimodal imaging work-up showed a tumor infiltrated into the myocardium, which greatly contribute...

Role of radiotherapy in patients with limited diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of Waldeyer's ring in remission after R-CHOP immunochemotherapy.

The standard treatment of waldeyer's ring DLBCL remains controversial. This retrospective study was designed to evaluate the role of consolidation radiotherapy (RT) in patients with stage I/II diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) limited in Waldeyer's ring (WR). We included 72 patients, 42 were treated with immunochemotherapy alone (CT group) and 30 were treated with immunochemotherapy followed b...

Risk Factors for Transformation to Higher-Grade Lymphoma and Its Impact on Survival in a Large Cohort of Patients With Marginal Zone Lymphoma From a Single Institution.

Given the paucity of data on higher-grade transformation (HGT) to aggressive lymphoma in patients with marginal zone lymphoma (MZL), we report on a large cohort of patients, identify risk factors, and determine HGT impact on overall survival (OS).

Demographic risk factors for lymphoma in Australian dogs: 6201 cases.

Lymphoma is common in the dog. Studies of population risk factors primarily have been derived from referral institution or insurance data.

Array-based CGH of primary cutaneous CD8+ aggressive EPIDERMO-tropic cytotoxic T-cell lymphoma.

Primary cutaneous CD8+ aggressive epidermotropic cytotoxic T-cell lymphoma (pcAECyTCL) is a rare provisionally categorized cutaneous lymphoma characterized by an aggressive course. Its pathogenesis and molecular mechanisms are still unknown, and only two individual cases have so far been molecularly characterized. The aim of this study was to define the pattern of numerical chromosomal alterations...

18F-Choline and 18F-FDG PET/CT in a Patient With Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma and Recurrent Prostate Cancer.

We report herein the case of an 80-year-old man who was referred for a biochemical recurrence of a high-risk prostate cancer. In addition to prostate cancer recurrence, F-choline allowed partial initial staging of an incidental diffuse large B-cell lymphoma which was further confirmed and staged using F-FDG and a biopsy. Two types of metabolic behavior were therefore identified using F-choline and...

Enhanced Anti-lymphoma Activity of CAR19-iNKT Cells Underpinned by Dual CD19 and CD1d Targeting.

Chimeric antigen receptor anti-CD19 (CAR19)-T cell immunotherapy-induced clinical remissions in CD19 B cell lymphomas are often short lived. We tested whether CAR19-engineering of the CD1d-restricted invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells would result in enhanced anti-lymphoma activity. CAR19-iNKT cells co-operatively activated by CD1d- and CAR19-CD19-dependent interactions are more effective th...

Bone Involvement in Hodgkin's Lymphoma: Clinical Features and Outcome.

Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) is now a highly curable disease, with an improving 5-year survival rate that has now reached 86%. At the time of presentation, HL is usually almost entirely confined to the lymph nodes. We performed a retrospective single-institution study of 384 cases with a median follow-up of 44 months, with the aim of identifying clinical and radiological characteristics and outcomes of...

Real-world anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement testing patterns, treatment sequences, and survival of ALK inhibitor-treated patients.

The anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) treatment landscape is crowded following recent ALK inhibitor approvals, and updated information on real-world treatment patterns in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (aNSCLC) with ALK rearrangement (ALK+) is needed.

Isolated Central Nervous System Rosai-Dorfman Disease and Breast Cancer: An Unusunal Presentation.

The association between Rosai-Dorfman Disease (RDD) and cancer was reported for the first time in 1984. However, there are still a small number of reports of this association. We describe a 60-year-old woman who presented with a focal onset motor seizure followed by tonic-clonic generalization and persistent headache. Magnetic Resonance Imaging disclosed an irregular hyperintense lesion in T2 and ...

Comparative Clinicopathological Analysis of Cutaneous Peripheral T-cell lymphoma, Not Otherwise Specified, According to Primary Tumor Site.

The analysis of cell-free DNA concentrations and integrity in serum of initial and treated of lymphoma patients.

To evaluate cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in plasma as a promising biomarker for lymphoma, altered levels of cfDNA and its association with clinical parameters are investigated in patients suffered from lymphomas.
