We identified 18 patients with the distinct clinical phenotype of susceptibility to disseminated nontuberculous mycobacterial infections, viral infections, especially with human papillomaviruses, and fungal infections, primarily histoplasmosis, and molds. This syndrome typically had its onset in adulthood (age range, 7-60 years; mean, 31.1 years; median, 32(More)
In recent years, overlap in biologic and morphologic features has been identified between classic Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) and B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Nevertheless, the therapeutic approaches for these diseases remain different. We undertook a study of "mediastinal gray zone lymphomas" (MGZL), with features transitional between cHL nodular sclerosis (NS)(More)
Subcutaneous panniculitic T cell lymphoma (SCPTCL) is characterized by primary involvement of the subcutaneous fat in a manner mimicking panniculitis. We studied 16 cases of this lymphoma to define its immunophenotypical profile as well as cellular origin. Involvement of the subcutaneous fat in a lacelike pattern with neoplastic cells rimming individual fat(More)
This study describes the clinicopathologic features of 5 patients who developed a fulminant Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-positive clonal T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD) after acute EBV infection. One additional patient developed a similar disorder in the setting of long-standing chronic active EBV infection. Detailed immunophenotyping, in situ(More)
RATIONALE Pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial (PNTM) disease is increasing, but predisposing features have been elusive. OBJECTIVES To prospectively determine the morphotype, immunophenotype, and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator genotype in a large cohort with PNTM. METHODS We prospectively enrolled 63 patients with PNTM infection,(More)
Immunohistochemical studies are increasingly used for the routine diagnosis of lymphomas as it is widely accepted that lymphomas of different cell lineages vary in their prognosis and response to therapy. A case of peripheral T-cell lymphoma with aberrant expression of B-cell-associated antigens L-26 (CD20) and mb-1 (CD 79a) is described. The disease(More)
We describe the clinicopathologic findings of 48 cases of marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (MZL) in children and young adults, a disease that has been recognized previously only rarely in this age group. Patients ranged in age from 2 to 29 years, with pediatric patients (< or =18 years) comprising 52% of the cases. As in adults, both primary nodal (N) and(More)
Lymphomatoid granulomatosis (LYG) is a rare angiocentric and angiodestructive Epstein-Barr virus-associated B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder (EBV-BLPD), varying widely from an indolent process to an aggressive large cell lymphoma. The skin is the extrapulmonary organ most commonly involved in LYG. We studied 32 skin lesions from 20 patients with known(More)
Trifluoperazine, a drug that binds to Ca2+-calmodulin and inhibits its interaction with other proteins, was found to inhibit growth and phagocytosis in a macrophagelike cell line, J774.16. Both effects were reversible and occurred at the same concentrations of drug (25--50 microM) that inhibited the activation of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase by(More)
