From a dermatological aspect, it posed a considerable challenge the skin-limited form of mastocytosis, urticaria pigmentosa and indolent systemic mastocytosis (ISM) with cutaneous lesions. Despite the favourable prognosis, lifelong dermatological control is needed, during which the average symptomatic therapy does not always seem adequate. We report here(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis of thyroid carcinoma during the course of lobectomy for a dominant nodule occasionally cannot be rendered on the basis of frozen section. Once the diagnosis of carcinoma is made, the question of completion thyroidectomy arises. The decision to perform completion thyroidectomy and the timing, safety, and efficacy of this procedure(More)
CD4+/CD56+ hematodermic neoplasm, formerly known as blastic NK-cell lymphoma, is an uncommon, aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with cutaneous, lymph node, and bone marrow involvement at presentation. The disease is characterized by early leukemic phase; however, central nervous system involvement is rarely reported. Herein we describe two cases of(More)
Hairy cell leukemia is an uncommon hematologic malignancy characterized by pancytopenia and marked susceptibility to infection. Tremendous progress in the management of patients with this disease has resulted in high response rates and improved survival, yet relapse and an appropriate approach to re-treatment present continuing areas for research. The(More)
Systemic mastocytosis (SM) is a rare chronic myeloproliferative neoplasm with only limited epidemiologic data published so far. We aimed to analyze the clinical and molecular diagnostic features, and the prognosis and cumulative incidence of SM cases in a cohort of south-eastern Hungarian patients of 13 year follow up. In the period 2001–2013, 35(More)
Hairy cell leukemia is a rare chronic lymphoproliferative disorder with indolent but progressive clinical course. Patients require treatment when they have significant cytopenia or recurrent infections. The gold standard treatment are purine nucleoside analogues (cladribine and pentostatine), with these agents the rate of complete remission can approach(More)
Hairy cell leukemia (HCL) is an uncommon B cell lymphoproliferation characterized by a unique immunophenotype. Due to low number of circulating neoplastic cells and ‘dry tap’ aspiration, the diagnosis is often based on BM trephine biopsy. We have performed a consecutive immunohistochemical analysis to evaluate diagnostic usefulness of various HCL markers(More)
