Primary mediastinal large-B cell lymphomas (PMLCL) are considered to be a distinct clinicopathologic entity among the diffuse large B-cell lymphomas. This study evaluated the prognostic factors and therapeutic outcome of PMLCL in a single-institution series. Twenty seven patients were reviewed. Nineteen of the 27 had Stage I-II and 8 had Stage III-IV(More)

Dialysis units routinely monitor platelet (PLT) count at the beginning of HD sessions. However, considering that the long-term effects on PLT count could easily be missed, the(More)
BK virus nephropathy is not an infrequent complication of renal transplantation associated with high rates of graft loss. Although antibodies against SV40 antigen detect different viruses of the polyomavirus family, immunohistochemistry is widely used to confirm the diagnosis of BK virus nephropathy in renal biopsies. Here we aimed to validate the novel(More)
