Kikuchi's disease is a rare self-limiting lymphoproliferative condition of unknown aetiology, characterised by acute or subacute necrotising lymphadenitis. It is a benign condition that can mimic malignant lymphoma. In this report, a case of Kikuchi's disease associated with a chromosomal abnormality is described. This is the first report in the literature(More)
Initial studies with high-dose therapy (HDT) in myeloma suggest some beneficial effects of attaining a complete response (CR); however, the effect on survival is difficult to assess owing to inconsistencies in the definition of response between studies. We have analysed 96 newly diagnosed patients aged less than 65 years who received HDT and assessed the(More)
PURPOSE Ninety-five percent of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) will achieve a remission, but approximately 25% will relapse. Identifying these patients is difficult, as patients with adverse prognostic features at presentation are rare and the majority are standard risk. Analysis of minimal residual disease (MRD) may be able to determine(More)
Acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) is characterized cytogenetically by t(15;17)(q22:q21) which results in the production of a PML/RAR alpha fusion protein. Detection of the translocation or the fusion gene product is required for objective diagnosis of APL. This can be accomplished by conventional cytogenetic methods, fluorescence in situ hybridization or(More)
Between 1973 and 1993, 529 patients aged 15 years and over with Hodgkin's disease (HD) were entered into a lymphoma registry. Twenty-eight cases (1 only diagnosed at autopsy) of histologically proven HD in patients aged 70 years or older were identified. The distribution of sex, 'B' symptoms, histology and stage was not significantly different from that of(More)
The safety of 'health' foods and complementary medicine products is increasingly questioned. We report a case of pure white cell aplasia developing in a patient who took a variety of such products leading to an excessive intake of zinc. Recovery was complete following the withdrawal of her 'medications'. The aetiology of the pure white cell aplasia is(More)
