Direct antiglobulin test (DAT) is a test that shows antibodies bound to the surface antigens of erythrocytes. In this article, our aim was to investigate whether a correlation exists between a DAT positive test and serum immunoglobulin (Ig) levels. In our clinic, all DAT positive patients were retrospectively studied. Patients who had not received a blood(More)
Hematogones (HGs) are benign immature B cells in bone marrow with a variety of benign and malignant conditions, including idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, leukemia, lymphoma, red blood cell aplasia, iron deficiency anemia, amegakaryocytosis, regenerative bone marrow following viral injury, chemotherapy or bone marrow transplantation, copper deficiency,(More)
A 5(3/12)-year-old boy with Philadelphia chromosome (+) pre-B acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) without extramedullary involvement did not achieve remission after induction therapy. His family stopped therapy, but he was readmitted eight months later due to pyoderma, pneumonia and active leukemia with leukocytosis. During cytoreductive and antibiotic(More)
We present two patients with acute myeloblastic leukemia (FAB AML-M7 and AML-M2) complicated by hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) and relevant literature review. To our knowledge, our first case is the first and youngest patient having AML-M7 associated with HLH reported in the literature. Our cases and cases in the literature highlight the high(More)
Muscle side effects have not been frequently assessed in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients. Our objective was to determine the early and late muscle side effects during childhood ALL treatment. To this end, we examined the early muscle side effects in 15 newly diagnosed "therapy patients" (group I), and the late side effects in 18 ALL(More)
Total surgical removal of the hematoma is the treatment of choice. Some authors recommend cosmetic cranioplasty within the same surgical procedure [4]. However, most of them prefer to preserve the intact inner table [5]. According to us, the elastic inner table must be preserved to avoid postoperative complications. Acceptable bone remodeling was seen in(More)
Herein we present a neutropenic 16-year-old female with acute myeloblastic leukemia that developed recurrentgeneralized seizures while receiving antimicrobial therapy (including oseltamivir) due to pneumonia, bacteremiaof Klebsiella pneumoniae, and H1N1 infection. The patient's seizures were controlled using assisted ventilation.Electroencephalography(More)
A 9-year-old girl with intractable anemia, rare mucocutaneous bleeding, and pallor was presented. Hemoglobin was 49 g/L; reticulocyte 0.79%, mean corpuscular volume 81 fL, platelet 37×10⁹/L; white blood cell count 3.2×10⁹/L with dysmorphic cells in peripheric blood. Further evaluation revealed 10% cellularity with grade IV reticulin fibrosis, immature,(More)
