The incidence of lymphomas in individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency virus has increased progressively since the beginning of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic. The present series includes 111 patients, all diagnosed and studied at one hospital in New York City. There were 108 men and three women; the average age was 39(More)
The lymph nodes within and around salivary glands are commonly involved in inflammatory processes, but rarely the site of primary lymphomas. We observed six cases of primary salivary gland lymphoma in HIV-infected patients and studied them in parallel with three cases of primary salivary gland lymphoma unrelated to HIV and three cases of HIV-related(More)
The levels of thymus-derived lymphocytes (T-cells) in samples of peripheral blood from 47 patients with carcinoma of the breast, 36 patients with benign mammary lesions, and 33 matched normal controls were determined. Results were analyzed with three statistical tests. It was found that the mean percentages of T-lymphocytes differed significantly among the(More)
BACKGROUND During the past decade, Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), one of the most common acquired immune deficiency syndrome-defining diseases, has been the subject of sustained research. However, basic questions about its etiology, histogenesis, growth, and dissemination remain unanswered. Even its nature, whether hyperplasia or neoplasia, is still controversial.(More)
Patients infected with HIV often have unusual manifestations of common infections and neoplasms. One such example is "mycobacterial pseudotumor," an exuberant spindle cell lesion induced in lymph nodes by mycobacteria. Kaposi sarcoma also produces a spindle cell proliferation in lymph nodes of HIV-positive patients. These two entities must be differentiated(More)
Clinicopathologic correlations were explored in 79 patients at high risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection who had lymph node biopsy for persistent lymphadenopathies and were followed for intervals of up to 7.2 years. Three histologic patterns, follicular hyperplasia with cytolysis (A), follicular involution with hypervascularity (C), and a(More)
Peritoneal effusions of patients with ovarian cancer contain sizable amounts of free and complexed immunoglobulins. By means of salt precipitation procedures, antibodies were recovered that after purification and concentration displayed a high degree of specificity against ovarian carcinoma cells. In indirect immunofluorescence, immunoglobulins recovered(More)
Immune complexes isolated from pleural effusions of lung carcinomas were dissociated by ion exchange chromatography in the presence of 8 M urea. The antibodies thus obtained from 2 lung adenocarcinomas and 2 squamous cell carcinomas were assayed by indirect immunofluorescence against a variety of target cells in fresh suspensions, tissue cultures, and(More)
