This anatomical study is based on the dissection of fifty adult hands. The classic configuration of the ulnar nerve was found in thirty-nine cases out of fifty, and in eleven cases there were variations with respect to division. The levels of division of the different branches were precisely determined by an analysis of variations in the areas of muscular(More)
We have studied 61 cases of B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), combining cytological features, conventional cytogenetics and in situ hybridization (ISH). The comparison of these results constitutes the main subject of this study. The patients were cytologically classified according to the FAB criteria as: chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) typical type(More)
We have studied 13 cases of histologically confirmed mantle cell lymphomas (MCL) combining cytological-immunological features with conventional cytogenetics and in situ hybridization (ISH) techniques. Peripheral blood smears and lymph node biopsies expressed the typical mantle zone pattern with alpha B-cell phenotype. Most of the cases (11 of 13) had(More)
Information about the expression of some myelomonocytic markers in lymphocytes of patients with B-CLL is scarce. We studied the CD13, CD14, CD11c and CD68 surface antigens in 42 controls and in 38 patients with B-CLL to detect their possible reactivity. Eighty-nine percent of B-CLL expressed very strongly the CD14 antigen; on the contrary, the other(More)
We present the cytological features, conventional cytogenetics, and in situ hybridization (ISH) findings of three cases of B-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (B-PLL). The diagnosis was made according to the French-American-British (FAB) criteria. We considered a diagnosis of B-PLL when a predominance (> 50%) of lymphoid cells with coarse chromatin but prominent(More)
The findings of in vitro culture of bone-marrow BFU-E from a patient with type I dyserythropoietic anaemia are reported, scarce data being seemingly available in the literature. The number of BFU-E in the culture was increased four-fold with respect to the normal values. The morphologic study of the colonies showed in all cases varying number of(More)
Two cases of acute non-lymphoblastic leukaemia (ANLL), subtypes M1 and M5b, are presented. Both of them showed the 9q-interstitial deletion as the only abnormality. From our observations and others found in the literature it can be inferred that such abnormality might be a primary finding in ANLL, related to an unfavourable prognosis, regardless the(More)
