Non Hodking´s lymphoma (NHL) may involve bones but synovial involvement is uncommon. We describe a patient who presented with polyarthritis, sicca symptoms and rash suggestive of rheumatoid arthritis. An atypical skin rash prompted skin and synovial biopsies. A diagnosis of synovial and skin malignant large B-cell lymphoma anaplastic subtype was performed. Chemotherapy with dexamethasone, vincristine and rituximab was started. Following treatment the patient had complete resolution of cutaneous and articular lymphoma manifestations...

Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a disease which is characterized by fever and desquamation of the skin and mucosal membranes. It is usually related with drugs, especially aromatic anticonvulsants which are recognized as the most common cause of this disorder. Cranial irradiation may act as a precipitating factor along with anticonvulsants for the development of TEN. We report a 28-year-old patient with central nervous system (CNS) relapsed non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) who developed TEN after cranial radiotherapy and concurrent phenytoin treatment...

Rituximab, a chimeric monoclonal antibody against CD20, induces the depletion of B lymphocytes. It is used for the treatment of lymphoproliferative and autoimmune diseases. Antibody immunodeficiency associated to RTX treatment is a new motif for consultation to our service. We decided to study those patients that having been treated with RTX, consulted for hypogammaglobulinemia or recurrent infections between November 2010 and December 2014. We evaluated eight patients, seven female and one male. The average follow up time was 19...

The leaching of trace metals from anthropogenically contaminated sites poses the risk of groundwater pollution. Biochar has recently been proposed as a soil additive to reduce trace-metal concentrations in the soil solution and to increase water retention, thus reducing drainage. However, field studies on the effects of biochar addition on trace-metal leaching are scarce. Therefore, we added 0, 1, 2.5, and 5 g 100 g of biochar derived from giant miscanthus ( × J.M. Greef & Deuter ex Hodk. & Renvoize) to soil contaminated by former wastewater irrigation and examined water retention and cumulative leaching of Zn, Cd, Cu, and Pb in a 2-yr field study...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the main neurological conditions associated with HIV/AIDS in Mexican patients treated at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery (NINN) in Mexico city, the main referral center for patients with disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system. METHODS: An observational, transversal and descriptive analysis was performed. We reviewed the databases from the Department of Epidemiology and the medical records of patients with AIDS seen during the period from January 1st, 1995 to December 31, 2009...

We report the case of a fiftyone-year-old woman with a past medical history of Linfoma no Hodking and a gastric adenocarcinoma with signet ring cells. She came to our institution with a twenty month history of dysnea secondary to pleural effussion, bilateral lower extremity edema and probably had ascitis. On CT and US two bilateral pelvic masses were found and biopsied. The anatomopathological analysis showed bilateral ovarian implants from signet ring cell adenocarcinoma (Krukenberg tumor). This patient developed a PseudoMeigs syndrome consisting on malignant ovarian tumor asociated with ascitis and pleural effusion without malignant cells...

BACKGROUND: Nasal T/natural killer (NK)-cell lymphoma is an aggressive type of non-Hodking's lymphoma associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and striking geographical variations worldwide. AIM: To characterise nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma associated with genotypes of EBV in Chile, a Latin American country, where multiple strains of EBV, including two new recombinant strains, in healthy individuals were recently found. METHODS: Cases with diagnosis of primary nasal lymphoma were selected for histological and immunohistochemical analysis (CD3, CD3e, CD4, CD8, CD79a, CD56, CD57 and TIA-1) and in-situ hybridisation, serology and genotyping analysis for EBV...
