INTRODUCTION: To describe the type and frequency of cutaneous manifestations of leukemia. METHODS: Observational, descriptive study. We included patients over 16 years of age, with confirmed diagnosis of leukemia from the Hematology and Dermatology Departments of the outpatient clinic and from in-patients. Patients with bone marrow transplantation were excluded. A complete history and physical examination of the skin and appendages was performed, with biopsy and cultures if required...

Current B-cell disorder treatments take advantage of dose-intensive chemotherapy regimens and immunotherapy via use of monoclonal antibodies. Unfortunately, they may lead to insufficient tumor distribution of therapeutic agents, and often cause adverse effects on patients. In this contribution, we propose a novel therapeutic approach in which relatively high doses of Hydroxychloroquine and Chlorambucil were loaded into biodegradable nanoparticles coated with an anti-CD20 antibody. We demonstrate their ability to effectively target and internalize in tumor B-cells...

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocitic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) is low-grade malignant lymphoprolipheration, that has tendency to convert to a higher-grade neoplasm over time. More common is the development of a diffuse large cell lymphoma or transformation into prolymphocytic cell population. In rare cases, 0.1-0.5% of patients develop multiple myeloma or Hodgkin's disease. We present 65-year-old female with Hodgkin's variant of Richter's syndrome. On the basis of clinical simptoms, cytological, hystological and immunohistological finding in April 2008 CLL/SLL were diagnosed...

BACKGROUND: We describe a patient who underwent transurethral resection of the prostate for urinary obstructive symptoms and had histological findings of adenocarcinoma of the prostate with prostatic localization of chronic lymphocitic leukemia (CLL). The contemporary presence of CLL, adenocarcinoma of the prostate and residual prostatic gland after transurethral resection has never been reported before and the authors illustrate how they managed this unusual patient. CASE PRESENTATION: A 79-years-old white man, presented with acute urinary retention, had a peripheral blood count with an elevated lymphocytosis (21...

A case report of epithelial carcinoma of the inferior lip which spread in cervical lymph nodes previously affected by a chronic lymphocitic leukaemia, is presented. The coexistence of both histological findings in some of the nodes (collision tumor) is remarked. We have made a review of the scanty literature about metastases on second tumors and compared and commented those features.

Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), a oncofetal glicoprotein, has been regarded as specific marker for colorectal cancer initially and restricted to the significance of tumor-associated antigen afterwards. Circulating CEA levels were determined in 47 patients with hematologic malignancies, resulting elevated in 10 (21%). The highest values had been discovered in a chronic lymphocitic leukemia complicated by primary hepatoma, causing the problem of the role played by the second tumor, likewise to another CEA-positive patient with the association "Hodgkin's disease-pancreatic carcinoma"...
