Liver biopsy specimens from 62 patients with hepatic infiltration by miscellaneous lymphomas were retrospectively studied. The most relevant histologic features of liver infiltration in the various subtypes of lymphomas were then compared. In this study, diffuse large B-cell lymphomas were the most common neoplasm to involve the liver as primary or(More)
Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of uterine cervix is an uncommon variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). We report here 2 new cases in which DNA sequences from human papilloma virus (HPV) types 16 and 18 were detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). To the best of our knowledge, HPV infection has not been previously described in similar cases(More)
A case of angiosarcoma arising in the setting of transplantation is reported. This rare and malignant tumor of the endothelial system is seldom observed in allograft recipients, with only seven cases having been previously reported. What is interesting about the present observation is that the tumor is thought to have developed in the vicinity of a Dacron(More)
Several viral agents have been detected in the lesional tissue of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS). Their precise oncogenic role remains to be determined. A 32-year-old heterosexual man with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) who had penile lesions of KS with overlying epithelial changes characteristic of intraepithelial neoplasia associated with concurrent(More)
Because interleukin-10 (IL-10) has potent immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory properties and is produced by some cancers, we hypothesized that its production might play a role in carcinogenesis by inhibiting adequate antitumoral immune responses. To test this hypothesis, retroviral vectors containing the IL-10 cDNA were generated and used to infect(More)
Leukaemic and lymphomatous infiltration of the appendix is rare and even rarer is acute appendicitis as the initial manifestation. From our routine biopsy material we collected four cases of haematological malignancies presenting as acute appendicitis or acute abdomen, caused or accompanied by tumoral infiltration of the appendix. Appendicitis was the(More)
BACKGROUND/METHODS Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphomas of the liver are rare. One specific clinico-pathological entity has been identified as hepatosplenic gamma/delta T-cell lymphoma. Recently, another distinct primary lymphoma of the liver has been recognised as primary low-grade hepatic B-cell lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT), based on a(More)
