Isolated myeloid sarcoma is an extramedullary tumor of immature myeloid cells defined by the absence of leukemia history, myelodisplastic syndrome, or myeloproliferative neoplasma with a negative bone marrow biopsy. Myeloid sarcoma is a very rare condition, and few cases have been reported. We reviewed data of 12 patients with isolated myeloid sarcoma(More)
Clinical features of 40 lymphoproliferative neoplasm patients in the setting of systemic autoimmune diseases managed in the Clinic of Hematology during 1994-2006 were analyzed retrospectively. The classification of systemic autoimmune disease patients was as follows: 15 systemic lupus erythematosus--SLE, 11 rheumatoid arthritis--RA, 12 Sjögren's(More)
A previously healthy 24-year-old male presented with a 3-month history of progressive backache and weakness in both legs.

UNLABELLED The chronic phase (CP) of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is characterized by the expression of chimeric BCR/ABL gene, extended survival, and profligate growth of maturing granulocyte stemline. The accelerated phase (AP) and blast crisis (BC) of CML are usually manifested by additionally acquired oncogene aberrations, resistance to therapy,(More)
AIM To evaluate the clinical characteristics of splenic marginal-zone lymphoma (SMZL) following antigen expression and the influence of therapeutic approaches on clinical outcome and overall survival (OS). METHODS A total of 30 patients with typical histological and immunohistochemical SMZL patterns were examined. Splenectomy plus chemotherapy was applied(More)
BACKGROUND Primary amyloidosis belongs to a group of monoclonal plasma cell disorders, characterized by extracellular deposition of immunoglobulin light chain fibrils in various tissues and subsequent multiorgan dysfunction. CASE REPORT We present a 51-year-old female with 2-years history of fatigue on exertion, oedema of face, abdomen and legs, bone pain(More)
The conflicting data are reported on the clinical significance of VEGF deregulation and intensity of angiogenesis in multiple myeloma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence and prognostic significance of VEGF expression and microvessel density (MVD) in multiple myeloma, as well as the relationship of their expression with selected clinical(More)
AIM To determine clinical characteristics and treatment outcome of gastric lymphoma after chemotherapy and immuno-chemotherapy. METHODS Thirty four patients with primary gastric mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma (Ann Arbor stages I to IV) were enrolled. All had upper gastric endoscopy, abdominal ultrasonography, CT and H pylori status(More)
An association between sarcoidosis and lymphoproliferative diseases (LD), the sarcoidosis-lymphoma syndrome, has been previously described, and may be attributed to the underlying immunological abnormalities that occur during the sarcoidosis disease process. We report two patients who developed Hodgkin's disease and diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin's(More)
