Primary Tracheal Mucosa-Associated Lymphoid Tissue Lymphoma Treated with a Water-Jet Hybrid Knife: A Case Report.

Primary mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the trachea is very rare and is easily misdiagnosed as a bronchogenic carcinoma or benign tracheal tumor. Here, we report a clinical case w...

Ferroportin Disease Caused by a Heterozygous Variant p.Cys326Phe in the SLC40A1 Gene and the Efficacy of Therapeutic Phlebotomy in Children.

Therapeutic phlebotomy is recommended for treating hereditary hemochromatosis. However, the procedure and its efficacy for children remain unclear. We describe a young female patient with ferroportin ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.

Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.

A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and adolescents and characterized by a high number of lymphoblasts and solid tumor lesions. Frequent sites involve LYMPH NODES, skin, and bones. It most commonly presents as leukemia.

A type of lung inflammation resulting from the aspiration of food, liquid, or gastric contents into the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.
