T/NK cell lymphoma is a rare subtype of lymphoma that is known to be of aggressive nature. We present two cases of this disease that originally presented with symptoms consistent with chronic rhinosinusitis. We outline how we managed the diseases and review literature on it.

INTRODUCTION: Immune suppression is a crucial pillar for treatment of aplastic anemia. Cyclosporine monotherapy is an easily available, affordable therapeutic option with good safety profile. METHODS AND MATERIALS: This prospective study was conducted over a period of 2 years from June 2012 to July 2014. The diagnosis and response to treatment of aplastic anemia was established as per published criteria. Follow up was done at 3 and 6 months in order to assess the response...

A 6-year-old boy presented with a 3-month history of high-grade fever and night-sweats but without chills/rigors. On examination, he had moderate hepatosplenomegaly with multiple enlarged cervical and axillary lymph nodes. His hemogram revealed anemia and marked eosinophilia. Initial investigations were negative, except anti-HCV IgG antibodies, that were positive. Bone marrow aspirate showed a single histiocyte containing suspicious intracellular yeast-like forms. Cervical lymph node aspiration revealed a heavy load of intra- and extra-cellular Histoplasma spp...

Myeloma cells are known to show varied morphology and various types of nuclear or cytoplasmic inclusions. There are a few reports of myeloma with presence of pseudo-Gaucher type histiocytes; however myeloma cells itself resembling storage histiocytes is distinctly uncommon. We report images of plasma cells resembling storage cells from a case of IgG/lambda plasma cell myeloma. Hematopathologist must be aware of such varied morphology of plasma cells especially while dealing with extra medullary plasmacytomas...

Bacterial contamination of blood components is the major infectious risk in transfusion medicine. Since platelets should be stored at room temperature that makes them an excellent growth medium for bacteria; it is mentioned as a major problem in transfusion medicine. Transfusion risk of a bacterial contaminated platelet concentrate is higher than viral pathogen such as HIV, HBV, HCV and HTLV. The objective of this study was to evaluation of the sensitivity and specificity of use of glucose and pH for bacterial screening of platelet concentrates compared to the Bact/Alert...

The effect of gamma radiation on the ultrastructure of the cell membranes of red blood cells has been probed using a powerful tool, namely, atomic force microscopy. We used mice erythrocytes as a model. Blood samples withdrawn from mice were gamma-irradiated using a (60)Co source unit with doses of 10,15,20,25 and 30 Gy. Structural changes appeared in the form of nanoscale potholes, depressions and alterations of the cell membrane roughness. The roughness of the cell membrane increased dramatically with increasing doses, although at 10 Gy , the cell membrane roughness was less than that of normal red blood cells (controls)...

Apheretic platelets are better quality blood components which reduce donor exposure and chances of TTIs to transfusion recipients when compared to the whole blood derived components. Though safe, these apheretic donations are associated with donor adverse events. We evaluated the incidence of such adverse events associated with the modern apheresis procedures that would provide an insight as well as help formulating preventive steps to avoid frequent occurrences of such events. This prospective audit-based observational study was conducted over 1 year...

Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) is a procedure that reduces circulating autoantibodies of the patients. TPE is commonly used in neurological disorders where autoimmunity plays a major role. We report our experience with regard to the indications, adverse events and outcomes of plasma exchange in neurological disorders. Sixty-three patients were included to this retrospective study. Median age was 48 years (range 1-85), there was a predominance of males. Neurological indications included Guillain-Barrè syndrome (n = 22), myasthenia gravis (n = 21), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (n = 7), polymyositis (n = 3), multifocal motor neuropathy (n = 2), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (n = 2), neuromyelitis optica (n = 2), multiple sclerosis (n = 2), limbic encephalitis (n = 1) and transverse myelitis (n = 1)...

Acute ITP is a benign, self-limiting disease. Chronic ITP is diagnosed when thrombocytopenia persists beyond 12 months. The main objective of the present study was to examine whether absolute lymphocyte counts at diagnosis has predictive value with chronic ITP. A total of 601 patients diagnosed as ITP between 1995 and 2014 were retrospectively evaluated. CBCs with differential counts were performed at presentation for 601 patients. Absolute lymphocyte counts at presentation were independently predictive of disease duration...

Aspergillus lateral-flow device (LFD) was recently introduced as a practical tool for the diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis (IA). We investigated the performance of Aspergillus-LFD as a point-of-care test for the diagnosis of IA. Serum samples were collected twice weekly from patients who received intensive chemotherapy for acute leukemia, or recepients of allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Aspergillus galactomannan (GM) antigen, 1,3-beta-d-glucan and Aspergillus-LFD tests were carried out according to manufacturers' recommendations...

Sokal index was developed in the pre-imatinib era to predict and prognosticate the outcome of Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. In the Imatinib era, a new scoring system called EUTOS scoring system has been validated as a predictive marker in CML. The scores have shown variable correlation with complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) and major molecular response (MMR). To assess the performance of Sokal score and EUTOS score as a predictive marker for CCyR and MMR for newly diagnosed CML-CP patients treated with TKIs...

This study was conducted to retrospectively investigate the efficacy and safety of pegaspargase, gemicitabine, oxaliplatin and dexamethasone (Peg-GemOD) combination chemotherapy as a first-line therapy for advanced-stage extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma (ENKTL). Eighteen patients with newly diagnosed stage III/IV ENKTL were subjected to 3-6 cycles of Peg-GemOD chemotherapy. After 3 cycles of therapy, the overall response rate was 67 % (12/18) with a complete response rate of 28 % (5/18) and a partial response rate of 39 % (7/18)...

Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL), nasal type, is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is commonly seen in East Asian countries and is associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection. This is a retrospective study where we describe nine cases of ENKTL; nasal type diagnosed and treated at our center over a period of 2 years. These cases were analyzed retrospectively for clinical presentation (age, sex, site of involvement), immunophenotype, treatment, response and toxicity profile. Sino-nasal symptoms (blocked nose, headache, epistaxis, regurgitation) were the most common presenting complaints (n = 8)...

The management of aggressive B cell lymphomas in elderly patients is associated with poor tolerability of commonly used chemotherapeutic agents. The safety and tolerability of a novel combination chemotherapy regimen utilizing rituximab, lenalidomide, bendamustine, vincristine and prednisolone was assessed in a series of elderly patients with new onset or relapsed/refractory aggressive B cell lymphoma and inability to receive conventional chemotherapy due to poor performance status and/or significant comorbidities...
