SPIB is an Ets transcription factor that is expressed exclusively in mature B cells, T-cell progenitors, and plasmacytoid dendritic cells. In the present study, we developed a novel mAb against the SPIB protein and characterized its expression in major hematolymphoid neoplasms, including a series of 45 cases of blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell (BPDC)(More)
Abnormal expression of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 plays an essential role in tumor cell dissemination and disease progression. However, the significance of CXCR4 overexpression in de novo diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is unknown. In 743 patients with de novo diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) who received standard Rituximab-CHOP(More)
MYD88 L265P is a somatic mutation that has been identified in about 90% of Waldenström macroglobulinemia/lymphoplasmacytic lymphomas (LPLs). It has also been detected in a subset of marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) cases, but the frequency and clinical and histologic features of these mutated MZL cases has only been partially characterized. We have developed a(More)
Follicular lymphoma in situ (FLIS) and mantle cell lymphoma in situ (MCLIS) are histopathologic findings of undetermined clinical significance. We studied a series of 341 consecutive lymph node resection specimens from patients diagnosed with colorectal (201 cases) and breast (140 cases) adenocarcinoma between 1998 and 2000. Incidental and isolated FLIS was(More)
Persistent polyclonal B-cell lymphocytosis is a rare, benign lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by a stable, polyclonal CD19-positive CD5-negative lymphocytosis, the presence of binucleated lymphocytes in peripheral blood, and a polyclonal increase in serum immunoglobulin-M that may occasionally be accompanied by splenomegaly. Histopathologic(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the need for surgical biopsy in patients diagnosed with radial scars without atypia by percutaneous biopsy. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this retrospective observational study, we selected patients with a histological diagnosis of radial scar in specimens obtained by percutaneous biopsy during an 8-year period. The statistical analysis(More)
AIMS Immunoglobulin light-chain expression is used routinely as an indirect marker of clonality for recognizing B cell lymphoproliferative disorders. METHODS AND RESULTS Here we describe four floral follicular hyperplasia cases in the gastrointestinal tract (appendix and rectum) of children (4 to 6 years). Immunohistochemical studies revealed lambda(More)
