In this study, we evaluated the frequency and prognostic impact of DNMT3A mutations (DNMT3A(mut)) in 1770 younger adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in the context of other genetic alterations and the European LeukemiaNet (ELN) classification. DNMT3A(mut) were found in 20.9% of AMLs and were associated with older age (P < .0001), higher white(More)

BACKGROUND To reduce intraoperative bleeding and to facilitate surgery by inducing tumor softening, a preoperative embolization of meningiomas is commonly recommended. PATIENTS AND METHODS We report on our experience with non-resorbable microspheres (Embosphere) in the preoperative endovascular embolization of 17 intracranial meningiomas. After adding(More)
Manifestations of Erdheim-Chester disease in the central nervous system are very rare.
