Splenic Marginal Zone B-Cell Lymphoma With Splenic Infarction in a Patient With Cold Agglutinin Disease.

Summary of "Splenic Marginal Zone B-Cell Lymphoma With Splenic Infarction in a Patient With Cold Agglutinin Disease."

We report a case of splenic marginal zone B-cell lymphoma discovered in a 73-year-old man with cold agglutinin disease. PET/CT revealed splenomegaly with focally intense uptake of F-FDG and diffusely increased bone marrow uptake, which was considered to be secondary to hemolytic anemia. Splenectomy was performed. The histopathology of the spleen showed splenic marginal zone B-cell lymphoma with partial splenic infarction, which correlated with the area of focal intense FDG uptake. Depending on the time since onset, splenic infarctions can present as focal FDG accumulation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The spontaneous transplantation of splenic tissue to unusual sites after open splenic trauma, e.g., after automobile accidents, gunshot or stab wounds. The splenic pulp implants appear as red-blue nodules on the peritoneum, omentum, and mesentery, morphologically similar to multifocal pelvic endometriosis. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Extranodal lymphoma of lymphoid tissue associated with mucosa that is in contact with exogenous antigens. Many of the sites of these lymphomas, such as the stomach, salivary gland, and thyroid, are normally devoid of lymphoid tissue. They acquire mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type as a result of an immunologically mediated disorder.

Veins which return blood from the intestines; the inferior mesenteric vein empties into the splenic vein, the superior mesenteric vein joins the splenic vein to form the portal vein.

Insufficiency of arterial or venous blood supply to the spleen due to emboli, thrombi, vascular torsion, or pressure that produces a macroscopic area of necrosis. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

Tumors or cancer of the SPLEEN.
