BACKGROUND the phenomenon that histiocytic/dendritic cell sarcomas may be transformed from lymphoproliferative diseases is dubbed 'transdifferentiation'. Langerhans cell sarcoma (LCS) transdifferentiated from chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small cell lymphoma (CLL/SLL) is extremely rare. The underlying mechanisms of LCS tumorogenesis and its(More)
Here we describe a case of Clostridia glycolicum (C. glycolicum) bacteremia in a bed-ridden elderly man with chronic illnesses. The bacterium was identified by the Remel RapID ANA II System. We believe that this is the fifth published report of human illness caused by this bacterium. In the four previously reported cases, C. glycolicum was found in cultures(More)
BACKGROUND Dysmegakaryocytopoiesis in patients with the plasma cell neoplasm (PCN) is rarely discussed in the literature. The puzzling phenomenon, which PCN patients maintaining normal platelet count even when the marrow is mostly replaced by plasma cells, is hardly explored. AIM This study was aimed to determine the frequency of dysmegakaryocytopoiesis(More)
Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is typically caused by phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor (PMT) that secretes the phosphaturic hormone, fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF23), resulting in decreased phosphate reabsorption in kidneys, hypophosphatemia, and finally osteomalacia. Rare cases of malignant tumor manifesting with TIO other than PMT had been reported,(More)
