R G Aiyer, Geeta Soni, Sachin Chougule, Unnikrishnan, Tapan Nagpal
Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is found in the older age group with extranoda involvement more commonly seen than in Hodgkins lymphomna. It isusually of B-cell type which has a better prognosis than T-cell type, Extranodal Non-Hodkin's lymphomas of larynx are rare. they can present as isolated lesions in larynx or associated with multiple involvement. They are usually found in the supraglottic region of the larynx. We present a case of 70-year-old female with extranodal Hodgkins lymphoma of epiglottis with metastasis in the liver...

Primary extranodal sites of development of lymphoid neoplasms are rare and concern about 5% of patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Extranodal development is more common in non Hodgkin's lymphoma and may reach 33%. A 27-year-old woman was diagnosed by a cardiologist for a short breath. On the physical examination no other abnormalities were observed. Echocardiography, performed by cardiologist, revealed a large tumor, overlaying the right ventricle and compressing the pulmonary trunk. Chest X-ray, ultrasound and CT-scan confirmed diagnosis...

PURPOSE: Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) have a high radio- and chemosensitivity. Although initially responsive, approximately 50% of low grade B-cell lymphomas relapse after 10-15 years. Besides chemo- and radiotherapy, rituximab, a mouse/human chimeric antibody targeting CD20 antigen on the surface of B-cell lymphoma cells, is another treatment approach. In vitro data showed potentiation of radiation-induced apoptosis by addition of rituximab. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and toxicity of radiotherapy with concomitant application of rituximab in NHL patients...

BACKGROUND: The increasing availability of different monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) opens the way to more specific biologic therapy of cancer patients. However, despite the significant success of therapy in breast and ovarian carcinomas with anti-HER2 mAbs as well as in non-Hodkin B cell lymphomas with anti-CD20 mAbs, certain B cell malignancies such as B chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (B-CLL) respond poorly to anti-CD20 mAb, due to the low surface expression of this molecule. Thus, new mAbs adapted to each types of tumour will help to develop personalised mAb treatment...

The reindeer herding Sami of Sweden have low incidences of cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the cancer risk in a large cohort of Swedish Sami, containing Sami with different lifestyle and genetic Sami heritage. A cohort of 41,721 Sami identified in official national registers between 1960 and 1997, was divided into two sub-populations -- reindeer herding Sami (RS) and non-reindeer herding Sami (NRS). A demographically matched non-Sami reference population (NS) was used as standard when incidence and mortality ratios were calculated...

Acute liver failure as a manifestation of primary non-Hodkin's lymphoma is a rare phenomenon with a fatal prognosis. Hairy cell leukemia (HCL) is an uncommon chronic B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder, representing about 2 percent of all leukemies. We report a 78-year-old patient with a history of hairy cell leukemia since 10 years, presenting whith fulminant liver failure due to massive liver infiltration. He have reviewed several cases of infiltration of the liver by haematological malignancies, but we only have found after a review in MEDLINE between 1980 and 2006, one case of acute liver failure in a patient with hepatic invasion by hairy cell leukaemia...

BACKGROUND: Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma was described for the first time in 1983 by Isaacson and Wright. It was classified into extranodal non-Hodkin's lymphomas of B-cell lymphocytes of the marginal zone of reactive lymphe follicles. It is characterized by both hyperplasia and colonization of plasmocytic, centrocytoid and monocytoid cells, by the infiltration of interfollicular and parafollicular parts of interstitium, as well as by the invasion of clusters of neoplastic lymphoid cells of the glandular epithelium, forming the pathognomic lymphoepithelial MALT limphoma lesions...

UNLABELLED: While ocular lesion is commonly known in lymphoma, optic neuropathy is very rare : 1,3% of lymphomas affecting the central nervous systems. OBSERVATION: Authors report the case of a 75 year old patient treated in the haematology department for 8 years, for a large cell B phenotype stage IV lymphoma for which he received 7 chemotherapy courses (CHOP protocol). After a 4 year remission period, he presented a relapse with a rapid progressive bilateral impairment of visual acuity observed for a week before his admission...

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome increases the risk of developing non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma (NHL) (relative risk over 100). NHL tend to be high-grade and to affect the central nervous system and digestive tract. Biliary tract compression is usually due to external compression from enlarged lymph nodes, but is not usually the first manifestation.We describe 2 cases of bile duct obstruction secondary to NHL in patients diagnosed with HIV infection. Histological diagnosis of the lymphoma can be difficult but is necessary so that these patients do not undergo highly aggressive surgical treatment instead of chemotherapy, which currently produces the best results...

We describe 4 cases of non-Hodkin's lymphomas that were interesting because of their curiosal clinical courses and spontaneous complete remissions during the course of high malignancy lymphoma. We present three of them for the first time in Poland. Case 1: a 61-year old woman was admitted to the hospital because of the headache, lasting for 4 months before hospitalization and right hemiparesis. CT scans revealed the presence of tumor in the temporo-occipital region. The diagnosis of B-cell lymphoma was established at histopathological examination of the postoperative material...

cdc25A, cdc25B, and cdc25C are a family of human phosphatases that activate the cyclin-dependent kinases at different points of the cell cycle. cdc25A and cdc25B have been shown to have oncogenic potential, and they have been identified as transcriptional targets of c-myc. To determine the role of cdc25 genes in the pathogenesis of human lymphomas and their possible correlation with c-myc deregulation, we have analyzed the expression of cdc25A, cdc25B, and cdc25C and c-myc genes in a series of 63 non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and 8 nonneoplastic lymphoid tissues...

Lethal midline granuloma syndrome (LMG) describes lesions of the midface and is characterized by a progressive and often fatal ulceration and destruction of the upper air way involving the nose, the paranasal sinuses, the palate and the soft tissues of the face. Under the term LMG we distinguish four entities: idiopathic midline destructive disease (IMDD), polymorphic reticulosis (PR), non Hodkin's lymphoma and Wegener's granulomatosis (WG). Review of the literature allows to present the differential diagnosis making use of latest technological achievements in clinical immunology and immunohistochemistry...

Ninety patients with Stage I or II, including extranodal (E), presentations of non-Hodkin's lymphoma were investigated by laparotomy, either for the definitive staging of patients with peripheral presentations or for diagnosis of abdominal disease. Sixty-eight patients had staging laparotomies after extensive work-up, which included lymphangiography and bone marrow biopsy. The remaining 22 patients had laparotomies for diagnosis of abdominal symptoms or for management of unrelated surgical problems, with lyphoma being found incidentally...

B-Lymphocytes carrying IgG-, IgM,- and IgA-surface receptors were estimated by fluorescence microscopy in the palatine tonsil of 50 patients aged 3 to 18 years as well as in 44 patients with various types of malignant lymphoms and lymphoepithelial carcinomas. Hyperplastic tonsillartissue contains large numbers of B-cells with a marked variability in concentration (4-30% IgG-cells, medium 12,9%;6-36 IgM-cells, medium 23.4%;3-38% IgA cells, medium 20.8%). There appears to exist an age-dependent increase in IgM-cells and an increase in IgG-and IgA-cells in patients with numerous recurrent infections of the upper respiratory tract...

On the bases of previous experiences and present results it can be stated that total-body irradiation is an effective therapeutical technique for treatment of lymphocytic non-Hodkin's lymphomas including chronic lymphatic leukemia; first results from prospectively randomized studies even revealed a slight superiority of this method as compared to the scheme of combined cytostatical therapy (CVP) mostly applied at present. Particular advantages of total-body irradiation are the easy applicability, the relatively short time needed for treatment, and the lack of subjective secondary effects...
