While chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) are common diseases in the elderly, they rarely occur simultaneously in the same patient. Here we present the case of a 77-year-old patient diagnosed with CML in the chronic phase who showed an optimal response to 400 mg/day of imatinib. This patient progressed to Binet B-CLL with(More)
To report a case of iron overload secondary to xerocytosis, a rare disease in a teenager, diagnosed, by T2* magnetic resonance imaging. We report the case of a symptomatic patient with xerocytosis, a ferritin level of 350ng/mL and a significant cardiac iron overload. She was diagnosed by T2* magnetic resonance imaging and received chelation therapy(More)
Despite the beneficial effects of imatinib mesylate, some patients may either not respond or respond suboptimally. Here, we report two chronic myelogenous leukemia patients; one had a suboptimal response according to European LeukemiaNet criteria (a major molecular response was not achieved after 18 months of standard-dose imatinib therapy) and the other(More)
BACKGROUND Zidovudine (AZT) and didanosine (ddI) are antiretroviral drugs widely used in AIDS patients. Hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia are frequently encountered in AIDS patients using AZT and/or ddI. OBJECTIVE To verify the effects of AZT and ddI on rat renal function submitted to normal diet, low potassium diet and magnesium-free diet. METHODS(More)
We report our experience in 4 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who had discontinued imatinib as a result of adverse events and had switched to dasatinib. The chronic phase (n 2) and accelerated phase (n 2) CML patients received dasatinib at starting dose of 100 and 140 mg once daily, respectively. Reappearance of hematological toxicity was(More)
