Improved medical care could have altered the clinical presentation and survival of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) complicated by autoimmune disease cytopenia (AID cytopenia). We reviewed the clinical characteristics, treatment, and outcome of AID cytopenia that was diagnosed in 75 (4.3%) of 1750 patients with(More)
Two unusual cases of large B-cell lymphoma with predominant splenic and bone marrow (BM) involvement and similar clinical and histopathologic features are described. Both patients presented with nonspecific constitutional symptoms, unexplained cytopenias, and splenomegaly. Splenectomy revealed diffuse red pulp involvement by large B-cell lymphoma. The(More)

We studied 25 T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (T-CLL) cases collected over a 15-year period. Immunophenotypic analysis was performed in each case; 12 cases were evaluated by cytogenetics, and gene rearrangement studies were performed in 14 cases. The median age was 57 years with a male predominance (M:F, 15:10). The median presenting lymphocyte count(More)
Translocations involving immunoglobulin (Ig) loci and chromosome 13 monosomy (Delta 13) are frequent cytogenetic findings in multiple myeloma (MM). Similar chromosomal aberrations have been identified in the monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), but their prevalence and significance remain uncertain. Bone marrow from 72 patients with(More)
Translocations involving IGH are common in some lymphoid malignancies but are believed to be rare in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). To study the clinical utility of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for IGH translocations, we reviewed 1032 patients with a presumptive diagnosis of CLL. Seventy-six (7%) patients had IGH translocations. Pathology(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Previous retrospective studies have indicated markedly increased bone marrow angiogenesis (BMA) in myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia (MMM). This issue is further examined in the current prospective study and clinico-pathological correlates sought. DESIGN AND METHODS This was a prospective single institutional study of 66(More)
Complex cytogenetic abnormalities have been described in patients with multiple myeloma (MM). To better understand the significance of the most frequent translocation observed in MM, we studied the clinical characteristics of patients with MM and the t(11;14)(q13;q32) abnormality. A search of the cytogenetic database at the Mayo Clinic identified patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To perform risk factor analysis for the prediction of hyperbilirubinemia in an African American male neonatal cohort. STUDY DESIGN A database of 500 previously published term and near-term African American male neonates was further analyzed to determine the role of risk factors for hyperbilirubinemia. Factors studied included birth weight >/=4.0(More)
Annexin-1 and T-bet are recently described immunohistochemical stains that reportedly assist in the diagnosis of hairy cell leukemia (HCL). Our objective was to assess the sensitivity and specificity of a panel of immunohistochemical stains in distinguishing HCL from other B-cell neoplasms, particularly splenic and extranodal marginal zone lymphomas (SMZL(More)
The diagnosis of polycythemia vera (PV) requires the integration of clinical and laboratory findings, bone marrow morphologic features, and JAK2 analysis. JAK2(V617F) (exon 14) mutation is found in 95% of PV cases. Functionally similar mutations in JAK2 exon 12 have also been described, but a thorough bone marrow study has not been done. We identified 7 PV(More)
