anaplasic lymphoma

A-S Henry, N Kerfant, C Blanc, A Trimaille, S Costa, W Hu
There has recently been a new controversy about the appearance of a particular histological type of lymphoma, anaplasic large cell lymphoma, in patients carriers of breast implants, with no causal link has been established for the moment. We report the case of a patient of 67 years old with recurrent effusion breast after explantation of breast prosthesis. The diagnosis of anaplasic large cell lymphoma was made after histological examination of the entire peri-prosthetic capsule after removal of most common diagnoses such as infection...

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour is a distinctive mesenchymal neoplasm, composed of a variable admixture of myofibroblastic spindle-shaped and inflammatory cells which were originally described in the lung, as a nonneoplastic lesion and designated as an inflammatory pseudotumour. The lack of certainty of the IMTs pathogenesis is reflected in the large number of terms which have been attributed to this lesion. Recent genetic and molecular studies of IMTs have showed chromosomal abnormalities of 2p23 resulting in a rearrangement of the anaplasic lymphoma kinase gene and have also provided evidence for a monoclonal, noeplastic origin for IMT...

INTRODUCTION: The presence of granulomas on tissue biopsie has been reported in a wide range of disorders. The clinical presentation and the diagnostic work-up of granulomatosis can be difficult as it is illustrated in the following report. CASE REPORT: A 59-year-old patient was referred in 2002 for a granulomatous prostatitis. Physical examination was normal. Except for the increase of prostate-specific antigen (which motivated a biopsy), the laboratory results were normal...

Multiple neoplasms are increasing in clinical practice mainly due to the longer survival of the patients with cancer. Besides, procedures as radiotherapy that are used for the treatment of different diseases and tumors can associate with the future occurrence of carcinomas. The synchronous presentation of two or more histological kind ofneoplasms is uncommon. We report and analyse the clinical case of a 71 years male who presented, after a functional neck disection, metastatic lymph nodes of 4 malignant cell types: Lymphocytic lymphoma, anaplasic clear cells carcinoma, epidermoid carcinoma and thyroid papillary carcinoma...

Through a retrospective study of 74 cancer of rectum the autors determine the epidemiology, the anatomic appearance and discuss the treatment, the prognostic. The mean age of patients was 48 years and the Duke's staging found: 16 stages B, 46 stages C and 12 stages D. The pathological anatomy showed: 58 adenocarcinoma, 9 colloïdal adenocarcinoma, 4 epidermoïdal carcinoma, 2 lymphosarcoma, 1 anaplasic adenocarcinoma. The operability rate was 66.2%, the resectability was 40.8% and the sphincteral preserving was 8...

BACKGROUND: The CD30 (Ki-1)-positive lymphoproliferative disorders show a non-epidermotropic infiltrate of large-sized pleomorphic T cells, being extremely rare those that develop from B cells. CLINICAL CASE: A 51-year-old white man presented with a 8x10 cm lobulated scalp tumor that had developed during the previous 8 months. Histopathology demonstrated a proliferation of medium and large-sized non-anaplasic lymphocytes. The tumor cells (CD45+) expressed B phenotype (CD20+, CD3) and were CD30 (Ki-1) positive...

Lymphomatoid papulosis is a distinct entity in which recurring crops of haemorragic and necrotic papules display a cytologically malignant infiltrate. The aberrent cell is now generally accepted to be an active T helper phenotype. The expression of Ki-1 (CD30) on a significant portion of the infiltrating cells characterizes lymphomatoid papulosis and relates this disorder with Hodgkin's disease, mycosis fungoides and anaplasic T cell lymphoma which may be associated in 10 to 20% of lymphomatoid papulosis. The categorization of this disease as a benign disorder versus lymphoma remains controversial...

Between July 1983 and July 1986, 109 consecutive patients affected by brain tumors and selected for stereotactic biopsy underwent in vitro investigation of cell kinetics. The potential proliferative activity of these different neoplasms, evaluated as in vitro 3H-thymidine labeling index (LI), has been determined in 46 mature astrocytomas, 19 anaplasic astrocytomas, 25 glioblastomas, 5 cystic craniopharyngiomas, 6 metastatic tumors, 4 primary C.N.S. lymphomas, 3 pineal germinomas and one choroid plexus papilloma...
