BACKGROUND: Kikuchi necrotizing lymphadenitis (KNL) is a rare and benign cause of lymphadenopathy, most often cervical. The etiology of KNL remains unknown. Central nervous system (CNS) involvement, such as in meningoencephalitis, is a very rare clinical manifestation of KNL, especially in children. CASE REPORTS: A 12-year-old boy presented with unilateral cervical lymphadenopathy and fever. Histopathological findings led to the diagnosis of KNL. He revisited due to severe headache and vomiting one week later...

The purpose of this study was to determine if acute intake of glutamine modulates homeostatic, hematologic, immune, and inflammatory responses to exhaustive exercise in the heat. Thirteen healthy untrained young men participated in this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study. They served as their own control and completed two trials of treadmill exercise at 40% VO2max to exhaustion in a hot environment (38.0 ± 1.0 °C, 60.0 ± 5.0 % relative humidity, and 20.8% oxygen) following placebo (PLA) and glutamine (GLN) consumption...

BACKGROUND: Synthetic CpG-oligodeoxynucleotides (CpG-ODN) induce proliferation in normal and malignant lymphocytes B (LyB). This effect is widely exploited in CLL conventional chromosome banding analysis (CBA), which has become reliable only after the cultivation of CLL LyB using CpG-ODN stimulation in combination with IL-2. Monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis (MBL) differs from CLL mainly in clone size. Only cytogenetic data on recurrent chromosomal aberrations analyzed by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) are available for population screening MBL (sMBL)...

BACKGROUND: Systemic sclerosis is a multisystem disorder characterized by microangiopathy, dysregulation of the immune system and massive deposition of collagen in the connective tissue of the skin, blood vessels and various internal organs. Although the mortality from renal crises has dropped significantly due to the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, cardiac and pulmonary involvement accounts for significant morbidity and mortality. We studied 28 patients with systemic sclerosis at Gandhi Medical College and Hospital, Hyderabad, over a period of two years for cardiopulmonary involvement...

OBJECTIVES: A resurgence of pertussis or whooping cough has been observed worldwide despite broad vaccination coverage. Pertussis like illness (PLI) refers to a clinical syndrome compatible with pertussis infection but lacking laboratory confirmation or an epidemiological link to a confirmed case. Our study aimed to estimate the contribution of Bordetella pertussis infection and identifying predictors of its diagnosis in a cohort of children with PLI. METHODS: Demographic and clinical information were retrospectively collected from the medical records of children < 13 years old and hospitalized for PLI in two pediatric units in Oman from 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2013...

Norelle R Reilly, Steffen Husby, David S Sanders, Peter H R Green
Coeliac disease is increasingly recognized as a global problem in both children and adults. Traditionally, the findings of characteristic changes of villous atrophy and increased intraepithelial lymphocytosis identified in duodenal biopsy samples taken during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy have been required for diagnosis. Although biopsies remain advised as necessary for the diagnosis of coeliac disease in adults, European guidelines for children provide a biopsy-sparing diagnostic pathway. This approach has been enabled by the high specificity and sensitivity of serological testing...

Background: Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is one of the most prevalent adult leukemias. This malignancy is known by lymphocytosis for a duration of more than 3 months. In fact, it is a heterogeneous clinical disease with changeable progression. Chromosomal aberrations are significant parameters to predict result and survival rate and find treatment strategies for each patient. Cytogenetic methods are known as sensitive and relatively new procedures to detect abnormalities in genome. Materials and Methods: In order to identify CLL-related chromosomal abnormalities, 48 CLL patients included 38 Men and 10 Women with mean age of 58...

Introduction The syndrome of transient headache and neurological deficits with cerebrospinal fluid lymphocytosis (HaNDL) may mimic stroke when patients present with acute/subacute focal neurological deficits. It would be helpful to identify investigations that assist the neurologist in differentiating between HaNDL and stroke. Case reports We describe three cases that proved to be HaNDL, but were initially considered to be strokes. Hypoperfusion was noted in the CT perfusion (CTP) studies in all three cases, which extended beyond any single cerebral arterial supply...

We herein report the findings of a 67-year-old woman with steroid-responsive multiple mononeuropathy associated with chronic natural killer (NK) cell lymphocytosis. The patient developed progressive, asymmetric weakness and numbness in all four extremities in the course of a three-month period. Nerve conduction studies revealed asymmetric demyelination in both the motor and sensory nerves, and a biopsy specimen of the sural nerve showed a conspicuous difference in the demyelination between the neighboring fascicles and the infiltration of NK cells in the endoneurium...

BACKGROUND: Diagnosing the cause of fever in the returned traveller is challenging. Efforts often focus on identifying 'exotic' pathogens. Primary Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections cause clinical features that overlap with many exotic pathogens. The age-matched seroprevalence of both EBV and CMV is greater in tropical then temperate areas. We describe the clinical and laboratory features of returned travellers diagnosed with primary CMV and EBV syndromes. METHODS: Patients with laboratory-confirmed primary EBV and CMV infections who had attended the Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD), London between 1st October 2011 and 1st October 2016 were identified...

Lymphatic filariasis is a tropical parasitic disease and is endemic in India. It is present in various forms but its manifestation as pleural effusion is rare. Here, we describe a case of 58-year-old male who presented with complaint of left side chest pain and breathlessness. He was investigated and diagnosed as a case of left side pleural effusion due to filariasis, with peripheral blood lymphocytosis but without peripheral blood or pleural fluid eosinophilia. Our case foregrounds that filariasis can present with peripheral blood lymphocytosis and without peripheral blood or pleural fluid eosinophilia...

A previously healthy 33-year-old man presented with a 3-month history of nausea, anorexia and weight loss. Coeliac disease was diagnosed at another hospital with positive serology and D2 biopsies and he was started on a gluten-free diet. The details of these tests were not available to us. Despite good adherence to a gluten-free diet, he continued to lose weight and became anaemic. A repeat gastroscopy showed D2 ulcers. Helicobacter pylori infection was excluded, coeliac serology remained negative but D2 biopsies showed partial duodenal villous flattening with intraepithelial lymphocytosis...

BACKGROUND: B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a common type of adult leukemia. It often follows an indolent course and is preceded by monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis, an asymptomatic condition, however it is not known what causes subjects with this condition to progress to CLL. Hence the discovery of prediagnostic markers has the potential to improve the identification of subjects likely to develop CLL and may also provide insights into the pathogenesis of the disease of potential clinical relevance...
