PURPOSE The WHO diagnostic criteria underscore the role of bone marrow (BM) morphology in distinguishing essential thrombocythemia (ET) from early/prefibrotic primary myelofibrosis (PMF). This study examined the clinical relevance of such a distinction. METHODS Representatives from seven international centers of excellence for myeloproliferative neoplasms(More)
Nerve sheath myxoma (NSM) of the oral mucosa is a slow-growing, benign, often asymptomatic submucosal mass. We report on a case of classical NSM of the tongue, with diagnostic and therapeutic approach to the case. Many NSM arise within the endoneurium of a peripheral nerve. It is a rare condition with no apparent differences between sexes in its prevalence.(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor-positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy results in a risk of non sentinel node metastases in micro- and macro-metastases ranging from 20 to 50%, respectively. Therefore, most patients underwent unnecessary axillary lymph node dissections. We have previously developed a mathematical model for predicting patient-specific risk of non(More)
Outcome of systemic peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL) is unsatisfactory and no controlled clinical study guides the therapy. Phase II studies suggest to consolidate response achieved after front-line treatment with stem cell transplant (SCT). We retrospectively evaluate the impact of front-line SCT consolidation in a single Center cohort of 209 patients(More)
Recently a few cases of synovial sarcoma (SS) of the abdominal viscera have been reported, raising awareness about the potential for confusion between this entity and KIT-negative gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). We report the clinicopathological, immunophenotypical and molecular features of fifteen more SS occurring in the stomach (8 cases),(More)
A 41-year-old man with a partially cystic cardiac mass was referred to our institutions. About 17 years previously, he had undergone the excision of a lipoma in the left popliteal region. The patient had been well until 3 to 4 months earlier, when dyspnea on exertion developed. Two-dimensional echocardiography (Figure 1A and 1B), computed tomography (Figure(More)
