F-FDG PET/CT was performed on a 48-year-old woman with leukocytosis (white blood cell count 57.10 × 10/L, 84.0% neutrophils) and monoclonal gammopathy to investigate the possibility of reactive neutrophilia secondary to plasmacytoma. On the background of skeletal "superscan," the maximum intensity projection image of PET demonstrated the highest metabolic region in the left sacrum, which was confirmed as an osteolytic lesion by CT. Biopsy of the sacral lesion revealed a plasma cell myeloma, indicating the diagnosis of neutrophilic leukemoid reaction associated with multiple myeloma. The white blood cell counts dramatically dropped to the normal level after 1 cycle of chemotherapy for multiple myeloma.

Neutrophilic dermatosis of the hands (NDH) is a rare localized variant of Sweet's syndrome occurring predominantly over dorsa of hands. Both Sweet's syndrome and its dorsal hand variant have been repo...
Neutrophilic asthma is generally associated with the absence of eosinophils and activation of non-predominant type 2 immunological pathways. It involves bronchial inflammation followed by different de...
The Korean patient with Perry syndrome (PS) was the first to come to autopsy. We report a pathologically confirmed patient with PS, and compare to pathological findings of previous literatures.
Neutrophilic urticarial dermatosis (NUD) has been described in 2009. Clinically, it is an eruption of rose or red macules or slightly elevated plaques, vanishing within 24 hours. It occurs mostly on t...
Define and characterize the neutrophilic phenotype of severe asthma.
In this pilot protocol, the researchers look to determine benefits from use of nebulized rh-DNase for 4 weeks in patients with neutrophilic asthma.
4-Week Safety Study in Subjects with Neutrophilic Asthma
Neutrophilic asthma (NA) is the least known severe asthma phenotype. It is associated with more exacerbations, worse control and impaired lung function. One of its possible etiologies is b...
This protocol describes a randomised controlled trial to test the hypothesis that 6 months of treatment with tiotropium and olodaterol will result in a reduction in bacterial load, an impr...
A peripheral blood picture resembling that of leukemia or indistinguishable from it on the basis of morphologic appearance alone. (Dorland, 27th ed)
A measure of PATIENT SAFETY considering errors or mistakes which result in harm to the patient. They include errors in the administration of drugs and other medications (MEDICATION ERRORS), errors in the performance of procedures or the use of other types of therapy, in the use of equipment, and in the interpretation of laboratory findings and preventable accidents involving patients.
A rare myeloproliferative disorder that is characterized by a sustained, mature neutrophilic leukocytosis. No monocytosis, EOSINOPHILIA, or basophilia is present, nor is there a PHILADELPHIA CHROMOSOME or bcr-abl fusion gene (GENES, ABL).
Work that consists of a conference of physicians on their observations of a patient at the bedside, regarding the physical state, laboratory and other diagnostic findings, clinical manifestations, results of current therapy, etc. A clinical conference usually ends with a confirmation or correction of clinical findings by a pathological diagnosis performed by a pathologist. "Clinical conference" is often referred to as a "clinico-pathological conference."
Morphological findings useful in differentiation and classification of results in CYTODIAGNOSIS and related techniques.
