Burkitt Lymphoma is the most frequent lymphoma of childhood in West Africa. The main localisations are facial and abdominal. In this study, the authors describe the case of a sub-cutaneous localisation of a Burkitt to a seven years old boy. He was admitted at the hospital because of an abdominal tumefaction. Nowadays such a case has seldom been published.(More)
Despite the high prevalence of neonatal anemia in Côte d'Ivoire, complete blood counts and iron studies have not been adequately explored. The authors studied complete blood counts (from peripheral blood mononuclear cells), hemoglobin electrophoresis results, and serum iron, ferritin and transferrin levels in 40 newborns and their mothers. The neonatal(More)
Background and Objectives. Interactions between sickle cells involving CD 49d, CD36, and the vascular endothelium may initiate vasoocclusion leading to acute painful episodes and multiple organ failure. Materials and Methods. We selected 60 SS patients who had never been treated by hydroxyurea. We performed a total blood count. We identified with(More)
T-lymphocyte subsets were studied in two patient groups: (1) 50 patients with homozygous sickle cell anaemia (SCA) (mean age 12 (range 3-32) years old) in good health at the time of the study who showed no infectious complication. (2) 50 patients (mean age 13 (range 4-29) years old) with normal haemoglobin rate. The global response revealed a significant(More)
Sickle cell anemia being involved in oxidizing stress, our objective was to study the influence of the fetal haemoglobin rate (FHb) on the lipoperoxidation markers in homozygote sickle cell patient in tropical African surroundings. The study population was composed of 73 subjects among whom 57 homozygote sickle cell subjects and 16 healthy control cases.(More)
Our research concerned the impact of chemotherapy on the haematological and biochemical profiles of patients diagnosed with malignant blood diseases and receiving treatment in Abidjan. The study covered 57 patients, 26 of whom were receiving treatment. Burkitt's lymphoma was the most common type of malignant blood disease encountered (33%). The proportion(More)
BACKGROUND In Côte d'Ivoire, acute leukemias account for 12.5% of hematological malignancies. Acute leukemias are due to an anomaly of the stem cell characterized among other things by the expression of CD34(+) CD38(-) surface markers. This CD34(+) CD38(-) phenotype as well as other factors such as tumor syndrome, high leukocytosis and blasts are considered(More)
Imatinib mesylate provides good results in the treatment of CML in general. But what about the results of this treatment in CML associated with additional cytogenetic abnormalities at diagnosis among black Africans? For this, we retrospectively studied 27 cases of CML associated with additional cytogenetic abnormalities, diagnosed in the department of(More)
