Primary cutaneous anaplastic large‐cell lymphoma with DUSP22‐IRF4 rearrangement following insect bites

The case of a Chinese woman with a 4‐month history of a gradually enlarged ulcerative mass in her right forearm following an unidentified insect bite is reported, the first report of a unique primary cutaneous anaplastic large‐cell lymphoma with DUSP22‐IRF4 rearrangement following an insect bite other than S‐ALCL involving the skin.

A review on Respiratory allergy caused by insects

It is of interest to review allergies caused by various insect's stings and bites and their adverse effect on the human body.

Immunoinformatic and systems biology approaches to predict and validate peptide vaccines against Epstein–Barr virus (EBV)

A panel of epitopes that could be used to immunize populations to protect against multiple diseases caused by EBV are suggested and selected based on their TAP, MHC binding and C-terminal Cleavage score.



Hypersensitivity to mosquito bites as the primary clinical manifestation of an Epstein-Barr virus infection.

A Case of Hypersensitivity to Mosquito Bites without Peripheral Natural Killer Cell Lymphocytosis in a 6-Year-Old Korean Boy

A Korean child who presented with 3-yr history of HMB without natural killer cell lymphocytosis is described here and close observation and examination for the development of lymphoproliferative status or hematologic malignant disorders is needed.

Hypersensitivity to Mosquito Bites Associated with Natural Killer Cell–derived Large Granular Lymphocyte Lymphocytosis: A Case Report in Korea

The first case of HMB possibly associated with NK cell-derived large granular lymphocyte (NK-LGL) lymphocytosis in Korea is reported.

Basophil activation by mosquito extracts in patients with hypersensitivity to mosquito bites

Results indicate that basophils and/or mast cells activated by mosquito bites may be involved in initiation and development of severe skin reactions to mosquito bites in HMB.

Atypical Hypersensitivity to Mosquito Bites without Natural Killer Cell Proliferative Disease in an Adult Patient

It is suggested that some patients with chronic EBV infection may develop HMB without NK cell proliferative disease.

Immunologic Difference between Hypersensitivity to Mosquito Bite and Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis Associated with Epstein-Barr Virus Infection

Investigation of the immunologic difference between the HMB episodes and the HLH episodes associated with EBV infection found decreased perforin expression in the HLh episodes with predominant-CD3+ EBV virus load is distinct from those H MB episodes with predominantly-NK EBVirus load.

Hypersensitivity to mosquito bites as the primary clinical manifestation of a juvenile type of Epstein-Barr virus-associated natural killer cell leukemia/lymphoma.

It is proposed that this disease, defined as the triad of hypersensitivity to mosquito bites, chronic Epstein-Barr virus infection, and natural killer cell leukemia/lymphoma, is a clinical entity mostly seen in Asians.

There was little evidence that either a general history of allergy or commonly reported specific allergies are associated with NHL, and significant NHL subtype-specific associations were found for allergies to insects and chemicals.
