Mixed-phenotypic acute leukemia: cytochemically myeloid and phenotypically early T-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia TO THE EDITOR: Early T-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ETP-ALL) is characterized… (More)
Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare indolent variant of non- Hodgkin's lymphoma characterised by lymphoplasmacytic infiltration of bone marrow (BM) associated with a serum IgM paraprotein. The WHO classification states that the neoplastic cells of WM usually are positive for monotypic surface immunoglobulin light chain, IgM, CD19, and CD20 and are… (More)
EBV-associated PTLD is increasingly recognized as an important cause of morbidity and mortality in both solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients. Mortality rates due to PTLD and virus-induced HLH are reported to be quite high. We report a case of EBV-associated PTLD and HLH in a child after liver transplantation who was successfully… (More)

Intraventricular cavernous hemangiomas are rare. Amongst them, cavernomas located at the foramen of Monro are of greater interest because of their rare location, varied symptoms, and often association with hydrocephalus. We present a rare case of cavernous hemangioma located at foramen of Monro, with its radiopathological confirmation.
INTRODUCTION Peripheral blood and bone marrow smear examination is an important basic tool for the diagnosis of different haematological conditions including haematological malignancies. We created a newer modification of the conventional Leishman and Giemsa stains as Leishman and Giemsa (L&G) stain and compared the efficacy and reliability of this stain… (More)
