Peripheral neuropathy (PN) caused by bortezomib is an important complication of multiple myeloma. Subcutaneous injection of bortezomib reduced PN, but 24% of cases were grade 2 PN and 6% of cases were grade 3 PN. PN higher than grade 2 was not resolved by subcutaneous injection. PN higher than grade 3 has serious dose limiting toxicity and is the cause of(More)
A 61-year-old man was referred to our hospital for leukocytosis and thrombocytopenia. Bone marrow examination showed hypercellular bone marrow accompanied by dysplasia, and the karyotype of his bone marrow cells was 46,XY, der(5;12)(q10;q10), +mar,inc[3]/46,XY[12]. A diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome, unclassifiable, was made. Analysis of major BCR/ABL1(More)
A 65-year-old woman was diagnosed with Coombs-positive autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) and pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) in May 1992. One month later, her PRCA went into remission following treatment but she developed idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and was diagnosed with Evans syndrome. Although her condition resolved with administration of(More)
We report the case of a 66-year-old man with primary diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the prostate presenting with urinary retention and dyschezia as first manifestation. Although a colostomy was needed due to rectal obstruction, rituximab-combined chemotherapy resulted in complete remission. He underwent stoma closure safely and has remained in complete(More)
The t(9;22)(q34;q11) translocation is found in about 90% of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. About 5-10% of CML patients have complex variant translocations involving a third chromosome in addition to chromosomes 9 and 22. Herein, we describe a CML-chronic phase male with a complex translocation involving chromosome 16, t(9;22;16)(q34;q11;q24).(More)
We report the case of a 17-year-old man with precursor B-lymphoblastic lymphoma involving an intracardiac mass and myocardial infiltration. Intensified chemotherapy followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation resulted in long-term complete remission for over 5 years. As the most frequent sites of B-lymphoblastic lymphoma involvement(More)
We present three long-term survivors treated with high-dose melphalan with autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation(auto PBSCT)for primary AL amyloidosis. Because melphalan toxicity is dose-related, patient age and the extent of organ involvement are very important factors for the success of high-dose melphalan treatment with PBSCT. The(More)
