Between 1996 and 2000, 90 newly diagnosed adult patients with T-acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) were registered in the Gruppo Italiano Malattie Ematologiche dell'Adulto (GIMEMA) Leucemia Acuta Limfoide (LAL) 0496 protocol. Cases were centrally processed for morphology, immunophenotype, cytogenetics, molecular biology, and multidrug resistance (MDR).(More)
Among the different T-cell receptor (TCR) BV20S1 polymorphisms, nucleotide substitution at position 524 results in the introduction of a stop codon, whose potential functional relevance is still unknown. We have recently showed in Sardinian subjects the most elevated allele frequency ever reported worldwide for this “null allele” (0.44). As this variant(More)
PATIENT Male, 64 FINAL DIAGNOSIS: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) Symptoms: - MEDICATION - Clinical Procedure: - Specialty: - OBJECTIVE Unusual clinical course. BACKGROUND Central nervous system (CNS) involvement is a sporadic presenting finding in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) both at diagnosis and at relapse. Moreover patients with CNS(More)
The association between non-Hodgkin lymphomas and autoimmune disorders is a well-known event. Also autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AHA), although much more frequent in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), has been described in this group of patients. In recent years, among the more traditional therapeutic options, rituximab, an anti-CD20(More)
In hematologic malignancies, the microenvironment is often characterized by nonneoplastic cells with peculiar phenotypic and functional features. This is particularly true in Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL), in which T lymphocytes surrounding Hodgkin's Reed-Sternberg cells are essentially polarized towards a memory T-helper type 2 phenotype. In this paper we will(More)
We studied telomere length in 32 CML patients who discontinued imatinib after achieving complete molecular remission and 32 age-sex-matched controls. The relative telomere length (RTL) was determined by q-PCR as the telomere to single copy gene (36B4) ratio normalized to a reference sample (K-562 DNA). Age-corrected RTL (acRTL) was also obtained. The(More)
Keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by skin lesions, neurosensorial hypoacusia, and keratitis, usually due to the c.148G → A mutation involving the connexin 26 gene. We report on a KID patient who showed the atypical c.101T → C mutation and developed a T-cell lymphoma so far never described in this group(More)
