[CD30-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma of bone treated with autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation].

Abstract

A 30-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with the chief complaints of fever and pain in the right shoulder, axilla, and inguinocrural region. Computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, 67Ga-scintigraphy, and bone-scintigraphy revealed osteolytic lesions in the ribs and right ilium. Biopsy specimens from lesions in the right ilium confirmed the diagnosis of CD 30-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma. The patient was treated with 6 courses of CHOP therapy followed by high-dose chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. He achieved and remained in remission with no evidence of relapse 14 months later.
