Mucosa-Associated Lymphoid Tissue Lymphoma

Etan Marks, Yang Shi
Duodenal-type follicular lymphoma (D-FL) is a newly recognized entity in the 2016 World Health Organization classification update. It has an immunophenotype similar to that of other FLs and usually carries the typical t(14;18)(q32;q21) translocation. However, unlike other FLs, D-FL is almost always diagnosed at a low stage and stays localized to the small intestine, most commonly the second portion of the duodenum, whereas the vast majority of other FLs are diagnosed at an advanced stage. Additionally, D-FL gene expression and pathogenesis appear to be more closely related to extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue than to other types of FL...

The role of [18 F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron-emission tomography (PET) in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) of marginal zone lymphoma remains poorly defined. We correlated initial PET with pathology, clinical factors, and outcome. From January 2001 to July 2012, 173 MALT lymphoma patients with a biopsied lesion identified on PET within 90 days of tissue biopsy were analyzed. PET positivity and intensity of FDG uptake were correlated with clinical factors and patient outcome. Among 173 accrued cases, biopsied site was PET avid in 123 patients (71%); median standardized uptake value (SUV) was 6...

Helicobacter pylori has infected more than half of the world's population, causing gastritis, gastric ulcers, gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma and gastric cancer. The oral recombinant Helicobacter pylori vaccine currently used has made great progress in addressing this problem, however, its efficacy and longevity still need to be improved. Th1 and Th17 cells play essential roles in local protection against Helicobacter pylori in the stomach mucosa. Additionally, protective immunodominant antigens are the preferred for a vaccine...

Primary endobronchial mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (EML) is rare. We reviewed 20 cases of EML, including ours and case reports. We found that the location of tumor in 70% of these cases was limited to the trachea and main bronchus, and the form of tumor in 61% of these cases was several nodular protrusions. If a patient exhibits these characteristics, adequate specimen collection on bronchoscopy is important. Because the prognosis for patients with EML is good, tumors on the trachea and main bronchus should be treated, while those on the peripheral airway can be watched carefully...

Background: Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori ) infection has been associated with gastritis, gastric ulcer, mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma and gastric cancer. The prevalence of H. pylori virulence genes have been studied in different populations and from different sources of samples but their prevalence has not been studied in dental plaque in Jordanian people; therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the genotypes of H. pylori isolated from dental plaque samples. Methods: Dental plaque samples were collected from 60 Jordanian volunteers...

Extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphomas (EMZLs) of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) are indolent lymphomas which can present at any extranodal site. The most frequent localizations (other than stomach) are ocular adnexa, salivary gland, skin, lung and thyroid. Chronic inflammation and antigenic stimulation are a potential risk for the development of MALT lymphomas. While Helicobacter Pylori (HP) is known to be associated with gastric MALT lymphoma and antibiotic therapy is effective in the setting of HP-positive, other microorganisms (such as Chlamydophila Psittaci, Campylobacter Jejiuni, Borrelia Burgdoferi) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of non-gastric MALT lymphomas...

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is one of the most prevalent human pathogen and a persistent infection with this bacterium causes common pathologies, such as gastritis or peptic ulcers, and also less common but more serious pathologies, such as gastric cancer or gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. The clinical outcome of gastrointestinal infection sustained by H. pylori is determined by the reciprocal interactions between virulence factors of the bacterium and host factors, including immune response genes...
