REVIEW
S Kleinert, P La Rosée, K Krüger
Paraneoplastic syndromes in lymphatic or myeloid neoplasms can present with musculoskeletal symptoms, vasculitis-like or febrile symptoms. Hematologic diseases are also associated with rheumatic diseases whereas inflammatory rheumatic diseases are often associated with an increased risk for lymphoproliferative disease. Atypical disease characteristics, lack of disease-specific antibodies or therapeutic response are red flags for diagnosing paraneoplastic or coexistent malignant diseases. New onset of systemic symptoms, worsening of general condition, night sweats or weight loss need to be considered during follow-up and differential diagnostics...

A 46-year-old healthy man developed respiratory distress, night sweats, fever, and weight loss after using electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) for approximately 1 month. He presented to the hospital when the symptoms worsened 2 months after onset. The findings of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid examination and the following transbronchial lung biopsy examination led to the diagnosis of acute alveolitis: intra-alveolar fibrosis accompanied with exudate containing abundant lipid-laden macrophages, eosinophils, and neutrophils...

The peripheral T-cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified (PTCL, NOS) belongs to a heterogeneous class of aggressive neoplasms. Although several morphologic subtypes of this tumor have been described, no particular genetic, immunological, or distinct clinical features define this disease. Patients can experience night sweats, fever, lymphadenopathy, weight loss, splenomegaly, and/or skin changes. Common laboratory tests reveal that patients have anemia, thrombocytosis, lymphocytosis, eosinophilia, hypergammaglobulinemia, or increased lactate dehydrogenase...

Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease, also known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is a syndrome characterized by the presence of usually painful cervical lymphadenopathy with fever and night sweats. It is a rare clinical entity that mainly affects young Asian women, although it found worldwide. It is a benign and self-limiting condition; however, its importance lies in its differential diagnosis with other clinical entities such as lymphoma or histiocytoma. We present a case of Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease, with special emphasis on its clinicopathological significance and its evolution during outbreaks...

Ipilimumab is indicated for the treatment of melanoma in both the metastatic and adjuvant setting. Ipilimumab inhibits cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4, leading to the augmentation of T-cell activity and an antitumor immune system response. The side effect profile of ipilimumab consists of autoimmune-like events such as dermatitis, colitis, and thyroiditis. These immune-related adverse events can be serious, often resulting in the need for systemic immunosuppression with corticosteroids. We present a case of diffuse, nonnecrotizing granulomatous lymphadenitis and granulomatous vasculitis in a heavily pretreated patient with metastatic melanoma...

BACKGROUND: Tuberculosis is a leading cause of global childhood mortality; however, interventions to detect undiagnosed tuberculosis in children are underused. Child contact tracing has been widely recommended but poorly implemented in resource-constrained settings. WHO has proposed a pragmatic screening approach for managing child contacts. We assessed the effectiveness of this screening approach and alternative symptom-based algorithms in identifying secondary tuberculosis in a prospectively followed cohort of Ugandan child contacts...

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), the most common type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, displays marked heterogeneity. Although it is usually curable, 30-40% of patients die within 1-2 years due to refractory treatment or cancer relapse. In different types of cancer in humans, inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPA1) is deregulated, thereby contributing to tumorigenesis by supplying the tumor with an enormous energy source. However, the role of PPA1 in DLBCL is still unclear. Here, we analized PPA1 in 65 patients with DLBCL and 20 patients with reactive hyperplasia of the lymph nodes (control)...

BACKGROUND: Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a common hematologic malignancy; however, its occurrence during pregnancy is unusual due to its low prevalence in females of childbearing age. There are conflicting reports of how to best manage CML in pregnancy, particularly in the setting of leukocytosis. CASE REPORT: A 30-year-old female was diagnosed with CML at 18 weeks' estimated gestational age. On initial presentation she reported fatigue, night sweats, and early satiety, and was found to have a white blood cell (WBC) count of 69...
