AIMS To elucidate the clinicopathological features and prognostic factors of primary intestinal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (PI-DLBL). METHODS AND RESULTS Archival tissues from 30 tumours were used for tissue microarray construction, immunohistochemistry and interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization for chromosomal translocation. The M:F ratio was(More)
T(11;18)(q21;q21) occurs at variable frequencies in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas of different sites. In gastric MALT lymphoma, it occurs in 30% cases and the translocation positive tumours are frequently at advanced stages and do not respond to Helicobacter pylori eradication. Intriguingly, t(11;18)(q21;q21) has been observed only(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclin D1-negative mantle cell lymphoma is difficult to distinguish from other small B-cell lymphomas. The clinical and pathological characteristics of patients with this form of lymphoma have not been well defined. Overexpression of the transcription factor SOX11 has been observed in conventional mantle cell lymphoma. The aim of this study was(More)
The clinical and histological presentations of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) often mimic an infectious process. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and human herpes virus (HHV6) are known to be associated with AITL, but whether these viral infections play a role in its pathogenesis is unclear. It also remains to be investigated whether there might be other(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type is an aggressive lymphoma that is always associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). This study was done to evaluate the use of EBV-encoded RNA-1 in situ hybridization (EBER-1 ISH) to detect occult micrometastasis in the bone marrow (BM) of patients with nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma. DESIGN AND(More)
AIMS To identify distinguishing histological, immunophenotypic and molecular genetic features between angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) and peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTL). METHODS Nodal T-cell lymphomas examined (n =137), included AITL (n = 89), PTL (n = 22), anaplastic large cell lymphoma (n = 16) and 'AITL/PTL indeterminate' (n = 10) with(More)
CD52 antigen (Campath-1) is expressed in high density by lymphocytes and monocytes. Campath-1H or alemtuzumab, a human anti-CD52, has been shown to be effective in T-cell malignancies; however, there is very limited information on CD52 expression in T-cell lymphoma (TCL). This study retrospectively investigated 97 TCL cases by immunohistochemistry using(More)
PURPOSE Whether diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of primary central nervous system origin (PCNSL) is biologically different from DLBCL of peripheral nodal origin (NL) remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to compare the expression frequencies and prognostic significance of a panel of cell differentiation markers between these two disease(More)
AIM To better understand the spectrum of primary lymphomas in the upper aerodigestive tract, a common site of extranodal lymphoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lymphoma cases diagnosed at an institution in southern Taiwan from 1992 to 2007 were retrospectively studied with pathology and history review, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridisation for Epstein-Barr(More)
Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is characterized by c-myc translocation and CD10+/bc-2-/bcl-6+ with a very high Ki-67 proliferation index (PI). Occasional diffuse large B-cell lymphomas may exhibit a very high PI with or without a starry-sky pattern (DLBCL-HPSS). We compared 28 consecutive BL and 16 DLBCL-HPSS cases in immunocompetent Taiwanese diagnosed by(More)
