Paraneoplastic dermatomyositis is an inflammatory disease of the connective tissue that is caused by inmmunologic events in the presence of malignant tumors. It is more likely to happen in middle aged women and is related to ovarian, pancreatic, stomach and colon cancer and non Hogdkin lymphoma. We present two cases of dermatomyositis, with amyopathic origin associated to breast cancer. The first case occurs as the neoplasia evolves and the second one as an initial manifestation that leads to the search and subsequent diagnosis of cancer...

Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) is a rare disorder presenting typically with acute or subacute severe cerebellar ataxia. PCD is most commonly associated with small cell lung cancer followed by adenocarcinoma of breast and ovary, and Hogdkin's lymphoma. We report a case of a 54-year-old male with acute-onset pancerebellar syndrome with underlying Hodgkin's lymphoma. A high index of suspicion of PCD resulted in arriving at an early diagnosis of underlying Hodgkin's disease. The patient was managed with six cycles of chemotherapy, which resulted in clinical stabilization and reversal of magnetic resonance imaging abnormalities...

UNLABELLED: Malignant lymphoma, especially non-Hodgkin lymphoma, is one of the most common hematologic malignancies in Thailand. The diagnosis of malignant lymphoma is often problematic, especially in early stages of the disease. Detection of antigen receptor gene rearrangement including T cell receptor (TCR) and immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) by polymerase chain reaction followed by heteroduplex has currently become standard whereas fluorescent fragment analysis (GeneScan) has been used for confirmation test...

INTRODUCTION: Allogeneic transplantation of bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cells is a frequently discussed therapeutic option in the treatment of malignant lymphoma. By analysing the results of our own transplant program in patients with advanced lymphoma we tried to evaluate indications for allogeneic transplantations. METHODS: Data from lymphoma patients treated at the Klinikum Grosshadern between 1985 and 2001 were analysed retrospectively. RESULTS: 56 patients were included...

OBJECTIVE: To review the current literature on HIV associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. METHODS: A comprehensive Medline/Pubmed search of articles pertaining to HIV associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma as well as personal experience from the treatment of over 200 patients at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, one of the largest centres for the management of HIV disease in Europe. CONCLUSION: High grade B cell non-Hogdkin's lymphoma is the second commonest tumour affecting people with HIV...

BACKGROUND: Hogdkin's disease is not an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining illness. However, Hodgkin's disease associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has a different natural history and therapeutic outcome than in the general population of Hodgkin's disease patients. METHODS: The authors studied the epidemiologic and clinicopathologic features and therapeutic outcomes of 46 patients with Hodgkin's disease associated with HIV infection collected from a cooperative study of nine hospitals in Madrid, Spain...

Sideroblastic anemia after treatment for Hogdkin's disease was seen in two patients 3 years after completion of radiation therapy and chemotherapy. This was followed in both by the development of myelomonoblastic leukemia. No evidence of recurrent Hodgkin's disease was present in either patient. Our observation suggests that development of sideroblastic anemia in patients previously treated for Hodgkin's disease is probably secondary to the treatment and is a preleukemic event.

In patients with histologically proven Hodgkin's disease, knowledge of the extent of involvement of lymph nodes and other organs has proven valuable in the determination of treatment and prognosis. One of the most common sites of involvement outside the hematopoietic system has been shown to be the lung parenchyma; in this study, six patients with a tissue-proven diagnosis of Hogdkin's disease and positive cytologic findings in the sputum were reviewed. Three cell types not found in normal sputum specimens were identified in these patients and were correlated with the histologic patterns of the tumors as seen in lung biopsies...

A 45-year-old man died of Hogdkin's disease complicated by peritonitis and possible septicemia. His corneas were used for transplant in a 26-year-old man with advanced keratoconus and a 42-year-old man with vascularized central leukoma of old herpetic keratitis. Both recipients developed a fulminating endophthalmitis with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We believe that the donor corneas, although clinically normal, were heavily infected, with signs of inflammation possibly suppressed by the Hodgkin's disease.
