Hypocholesterolemia is seen in solid tumors and some hematological malignancies. We assessed cholesterol levels and the relationship between these levels and types and stages of multiple myeloma (MM) in the patients with MM. One-hundred two patients (60 male and 42 female) of mean age 59 ± 11 years with MM were enrolled to this study. While 71.6% of the(More)
OBJECTIVE Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of bone is a rare entity. The most common histological subtype is diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The major presenting symptoms are soft tissue swelling, bone pain and pathological fracture. Treatment options are chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, or a combination of these modalities. METHODS We(More)
The t (2;5) (p23; q35) translocation associated with CD30-positive anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) creates a hybrid gene encoding the chimeric nucleolar protein nucleophosmin-anaplastic lymphoma kinase (NFMALK) protein, which can be demonstrated by immunostaining with ALK1 monoclonal antibody. In this study, 40 specimens of ALCL from 6 pediatric, 34(More)
UNLABELLED Both leukocytoclastic vasculitis and metastatic pulmonary calcification are conditions that rarely occur during the course of multiple myeloma. We present a multiple myeloma patient that had severe dyspnea due to metastatic pulmonary calcinosis, and ulceronecrotic skin lesions caused by leukocytoclastic vasculitis. After 3 courses of standarddose(More)
OBJECTIVE Follicular lymphoma (FL) is one of the most common lymphomas, and is characterized by t(14;18)(q32;q21) in more than 80% of patients. The aim of this study was to determine the rate of t(14;18) positivity based onthe detection of mbr or mcr in paraffin-embedded tissue samples. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 32 paraffin-embedded tissue(More)
POEMS syndrome (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, M-protein and skin changes) is a rare disease and constitues 1-2% of plasma cell dyscrasia. Most of the patients have few sclerotic bone lesions and more than 90% of patients have serum and/or urinary M-protein. In this report, we present a patient with POEMS syndrome who had severe(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine Factor V G1691A (Leiden) (FVL) and prothrombin G20210A (PT) gene mutation status, and their relationship with thrombosis in patients with chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPDs). METHODS The study included 160 patients with a CMPD that were regularly followed-up between 1993 and 2009. FVL and PT mutation(More)
In this study the effect of low dose long-term maintenance chemotherapy in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) was evaluated. Following a complete remission two consolidation courses were given with the same drugs. Thereafter patients received low dose maintenance chemotherapy in every four weeks until disease relapsed or for up to two years. A total(More)
This is the last of a series of articles on invasive fungal infections prepared by opinion leaders in Turkey. The aim of these articles is to guide clinicians in managing invasive fungal diseases in hematological malignancies and stem cell transplantation based on the available best evidence in this field. The previous articles summarized the diagnosis and(More)
Extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) is a distinct lymphoma with specific clinical and pathological features that occurs in diverse anatomic locations. We conducted this retrospective study to demonstrate our experience in patients with MALT lymphomas and compare our results with the literature. We studied 23(More)
