Hodgkin's disease (HD) was diagnosed in 24 patients who were either seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) (21) or members of a high-risk group (three), but had not developed acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Clinical presentation of the disease was characterized by constitutional symptoms in all, especially fever (23/24) and(More)
We report a case of a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor arising from a retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma in an adult male. There was no known previous history of a childhood neuroblastoma or of radiation therapy. In addition, the patient had no stigmata or family history of von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis. This case provides evidence that,(More)
Adoptively transferred immune cells in combination with chemotherapeutic agents form the basis for adoptive chemoimmunotherapy (ACIT) of neoplastic disease. Autolymphocytes (ALT-cells) are ex vivo activated peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) from tumor-bearing hosts (TBH) that consist primarily of tumor-specific CD45RO+ (memory) T-cells. These ALT-cells(More)
BACKGROUND Carcinoma of the breast infrequently presents initially as axillary adenopathy. In such cases, after biopsy proves the presence of metastatic carcinoma, the primary tumor generally is assumed to be in the ipsilateral breast, despite negative mammographic findings and the lack of a clinically palpable breast mass. METHODS The authors recently(More)
The lesions known as lymphocytic vasculitis, polymorphic reticulosis (midline malignant reticulosis, lethal midline granuloma), lymphomatoid granulomatosis, and angiocentric lymphoma form what have been collectively termed the angiocentric immunoproliferative lesions (AIL). Because of recent reports demonstrating clonal rearrangements of the T-cell receptor(More)
Intermediate- and high-grade B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) occurring in a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patient is considered diagnostic of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Other neoplasms (both hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic) have also been reported in patients with HIV infection, although none except Kaposi sarcoma(More)
The development of malignant neoplasms in patients with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) or with a positive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody test is a well known phenomenon. According to the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (Atlanta, GA), the presence of intermediate-grade or high-grade B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma(More)
The most common human immunodeficiency virus-related (HIV) malignancies to date include Kaposi's sarcoma and the high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. There also appears to be an association between HIV and an aggressive form of Hodgkin's disease. In addition, there is a spectrum of HIV-related central and peripheral neurologic syndromes.
