Immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related sclerosing disease is a recently described syndrome characterized by lymphoplasmacytic infiltration of exocrine glands or extranodal tissues and elevated serum IgG4. We report three cases of lymphadenopathy secondary to IgG4-related sclerosing disease. Histologic features of involved lymph nodes included interfollicular(More)
Although pathological diagnosis is essential for managing malignant lymphoma, intraabdominal lesions are generally difficult to approach due to the invasiveness of abdominal surgery. Here, we report the use of percutaneous image-guided coaxial core-needle biopsy (CNB) to obtain intraabdominal specimens for diagnosing intraabdominal lymphomas, which(More)
Graft failure (GF) remains a major problem in cord blood transplantation (CBT). In 36 adult patients undergoing CBT at our hospital between July 2003 and December 2009, six patients developed GF (primary, n = 5; secondary, n = 1). All six patients underwent second stem cell transplantation (SCT). Three patients had acute myeloid leukemia, one had acute(More)
Toxoplasmosis is a rare and possibly underestimated complication following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) associated with a high mortality rate, although the incidence of toxoplasmosis after HSCT in Japan has not been established. We retrospectively studied patients with toxoplasmosis after HSCT, and identified five patients who had been(More)
The prognosis of pulmonary toxoplasmosis, including disseminated toxoplasmosis involving the lungs, following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is extremely poor due to the difficulties associated with early diagnosis and the rapidly progressive deterioration of multiorgan function. In our institution, we identified nine cases of toxoplasmosis,(More)
A 47-year-old man presented with a fever and lower extremity paresthesia. A physical examination revealed sensory deficits in the left hand, distal arm and right sole. A bone marrow aspiration demonstrated infiltration of extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type, and (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) disclosed extensive(More)
A 67-year-old woman presented with a right inguinal mass in May 2006. CT scan showed lymph node involvement from the right inguinal to the common iliac and (18)F-FDG-PET revealed uptake in those areas. Biopsy results indicated Langerhans cell sarcoma (LCS). Interestingly, tumor cells expressed a high MIB1 index of 30%. We administered doxorubicin,(More)
The activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) assay is a basic hemostatic assay based on the time it takes for clots to form in plasma samples after the addition of calcium chloride. It is used to screen for various coagulation disorders. Several previous reports have suggested that magnesium (Mg) might contribute to coagulation reactions by binding to(More)
Therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome and acute myelogenous leukemia are increasingly being recognized as treatment complications in patients receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy for previous neoplasms. However, therapy-related chronic myelogenous leukemia is relatively rare. A 61-year-old woman with a history of radiation therapy for breast cancer had(More)
