Primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (CBCL) represent approximately 20% to 25% of all primary cutaneous lymphomas. With the advent of the World Health Organization-European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Consensus Classification for Cutaneous Lymphomas in 2005, uniform terminology and classification for this rare group of neoplasms(More)
Circulating malignant Sézary lymphocytes result from a clonal proliferation of memory/activated CD4(+)CD45RO(+) T lymphocytes primarily involving the skin. Recently, the CD158k/KIR3DL2 cell surface receptor has been identified to phenotypically characterize these cells. We previously described a mAb termed SC5 that identifies an unknown early activation(More)
It is now widely accepted that polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of cutaneous T-cell clonality is of diagnostic value in cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) and most helpful in the diagnosis of mycosis fungoides (MF). However, the diagnostic and prognostic value of circulating clonal T cells remains unclear. We studied T-cell clonality in the(More)
BACKGROUND Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disease of unknown etiology characterized by a disproportionate Th1 granulomatous immune response in the organs involved. Plasmatic hypergammaglobulinemia and B cell accumulation in granulomatous lesions suggest the possible role of humoral immune responses in the pathogenesis of sarcoidosis. The purpose of this(More)
Extranodal natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma of nasal type (NKTCL) is a malignant disorder of cytotoxic lymphocytes of NK or more rarely T cells associated with clonal Epstein-Barr virus infection. Extranodal NKTCL is rare in Western countries, but in Asia and Central and South America it can account for up to 10% of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. It is an(More)
IMPORTANCE Deep dermatophytosis is a disease that involves dermatophytic infection of the dermis and/or lymph nodes and sometimes the central nervous system. Autosomal recessive deficiency of the CARD9 (caspase recruitment domain 9) protein has been described in 17 patients with deep dermatophytosis from Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco. OBSERVATIONS We(More)
A molecular feature of Sézary syndrome (SS) is the abnormal expression of T-plastin by malignant T cells. Herein, we investigated the molecular mechanisms involved in T-plastin synthesis and the functions of this actin-binding protein, with a special interest in chemoresistance and migration. We confirm the specific expression of T-plastin in peripheral(More)
Several publications, including ours, reported that T-plastin (PLS3) is specifically expressed in patients with Sézary syndrome (SS), the erythrodermic and leukemic form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). 1-5 Besides PLS3, several other molecular SS-restricted markers, including the transcription factor Twist, 6 have been identified by gene expression(More)
The distinction between Sézary syndrome (SS) and benign erythrodermic inflammatory diseases (EID) is difficult to make both clinically and on skin biopsies, since histomorphology can provide nonspecific results. New markers of circulating malignant Sézary cells have been recently described, especially CD158k/KIR3DL2 and T-plastin, but it has not been yet(More)
