Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) is a rare and aggressive malignancy derived from precursors of plasmacytoid dendritic cells. We analyzed 21 cases with array-based comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH). Complete or partial chromosomal losses largely outnumbered the gains, with common deleted regions involving 9p21.3 (CDKN2A/CDKN2B),(More)
An osteoma is a slow-growing, benign lesion comprising mature bone tissue. Osteomas rarely occur in maxillary bones, with the exception of the maxillary sinuses. Various possible etiologies have been proposed, including congenital anomalies, chronic inflammation, muscular activity, embryogenetic changes, and trauma. Here we present a case of an osteoma of(More)
Increased microvessel density contributes to abnormal BM and spleen microenvironment in myelofibrosis (MF). Taking advantage of the JAK2V617F mutation as a marker of malignancy, in the present study, we investigated whether splenic endothelial cells (ECs) obtained from capillaries by laser microdissection or from fresh spleen tissue by cell culture or cell(More)
The spleen is an infrequent site for metastatic lesions, and solitary splenic metastases from squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus are very rare: only 4 cases have been reported thus far. These lesions are whitish nodules that are macroscopically and radiologically similar to primary splenic lymphomas. We report a case of metachronous splenic metastases(More)
In children < 2 years of age, cutaneous involvement is the most frequent presentation of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). Cutaneous LCH can be localized or associated with dissemination and organ dysfunction. The clinical course is variable, ranging from spontaneous regression to a fatal outcome. We describe a female newborn presenting with congenital(More)
