A 46-year-old woman, G6P5, 14 weeks gestation, was admitted after a V. palaestinae bite on her right toe. On admission to the Emergency Department, physical examination included the following vital signs and findings: pulse 76 beats/min, blood pressure 90/60 mm Hg, nausea, vomiting, foot and distal leg swelling, and normal fetal monitoring. She was treated with intravenous fluids, analgesics, and V. palaestinae antivenom. Eight days later she developed serum sickness, was treated with prednisone, and fully recovered. A healthy baby was born at term, with normal examination at 2 months post-delivery.

Adalimumab appeared successful in sarcoidosis patients with refractory chronic non-infectious uveitis showing improvement in intraocular inflammatory signs as well as in other relevant clinical indicators of disease activity. Future randomized studies are needed to determine the optimal dosage, dose interval and duration of therapy in refractory multisystemic sarcoidosis.
As a single agent, vincristine is associated with brief and incomplete responses, but in combination with other agents, vincristine has dramatically improved the outcomes of lymphoid malignancies such as ALL. Vincristine is a key drug of hyper-fractionated cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin and dexamethasone, an intensive chemotherapeutic regimen for the treatment of ALL, and of cyclophosphamid, adriamycin, vincristine and prednisone, which has been used extensively in the treatment of patients with aggressive or indolent lymphomas and Richter syndrome. The strong antileukemic activity of vincristine has been limited by its variable and unpredictable pharmacological characteristics, narrow therapeutic index and neurotoxicity profile. These characteristics prompted the development of liposomal vincristine, which has optimized its clinical application. Liposomal vincristine has promising antileukemic activity, and it is approved by the FDA as a single agent for the treatment of relapsed/refractory Philadelphia chromosome-negative ALL.

Intravascular lymphoma (IL) is a rare variant of non-Hodgkin lymphoma with a predilection for skin. Most reported cases are large B cell lymphomas. Intravascular anaplastic large cell lymphoma (IALCL) is extremely rare. Retrospective analysis of a case of cutaneous IALCL was performed. Hematoxylin and eosin stained sections and immunohistochemical staining results were analyzed. The patient was a 47-year-old woman who had developed multiple erythematous patches and plaques on her back. The lesions responded well to CHOP (cyclophosphamide, hydroxydoxorubicin, oncovin, prednisone) chemotherapy, but relapsed shortly after therapy. The patient was surviving with the disease for eight years but was ultimately lost to follow up. Histopathologically, the neoplasm evolved from IL to extravascular lymphoma. This was showed in biopsies obtained at different stages of the disease. The lymphoma cells stained positively for CD30, CD45, CD3, CD4, CD5 and Ki67, and lacked expression of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK), CD8, CD45RA, CD45RO, CD20, CD79, CD56, perforin and granzyme B. Our results suggest that IALCL represents a distinct subtype of IL and is histopathologically and biologically different from IL with B, NK or T cell phenotype.
Results from this study suggest that conversion to SIR 1 year after lung transplantation improves survival and decreases the development of BOS. Randomized studies with higher number of patients are needed to determine the prophylactic efficacy of sirolimus in preventing the development of BOS.

Of 108 patients (including eight female patients) included in the study, 23 (21%) had early favorable HL, 14 (13%) had early unfavorable HL, and 71 (66%) had advanced-stage HL. The median CD4 count at HL diagnosis was 240/μL. The complete remission rates for patients with early favorable, early unfavorable, and advanced-stage HL were 96%, 100%, and 86%, respectively. The 2-year progression-free survival of the entire study population was 91.7%. Eleven patients (11%) have died, and treatment-related mortality was 5.6%. The 2-year overall survival rate was 90.7% with no significant difference between early favorable (95.7%), early unfavorable (100%), and advanced-stage HL (86.8%).

The impact of rituximab (R) on the incidence of central nervous system (CNS) relapse of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is unclear. We performed a meta-analysis to explore the risk factors and assess the association between R-chemotherapy (R-chemo) and CNS relapse. We searched MEDLINE, PubMed, EMBASE and OVID for eligible studies. Published group statistics were extracted from each study for analysis; individual patient data from each study were not accessed. Fixed- or random-effects models were used to estimate the odds ratio (OR) with a 95% confidence interval (CI). Eight studies were identified. The OR for R-chemo compared with identical chemotherapy was 0.70 (95% CI 0.54-0.91). Stage III/IV (OR 2.25, 95% CI 1.64-3.08), International Prognostic Index (IPI) > 1 (OR 2.62, 95% CI 1.59-4.33), performance status (PS) > 1 (OR 1.67, 95% CI 1.23-2.27), elevated lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) (OR 2.23, 95% CI 1.54-3.22), bone marrow involvement (OR 2.85, 95% CI 1.99-4.07), more than one extranodal involvement (OR 2.61, 95% CI 1.93-3.54), presence of B symptoms (OR 1.87, 95% CI 1.37-2.56) and testicular involvement (OR 3.83, 95% CI 1.84-7.97) were associated with increased risks of CNS relapse. This meta-analysis demonstrated a lower incidence of CNS relapse of DLBCL in the rituximab era. The risk of CNS relapse can be assessed by stage, IPI, PS, LDH, presence of B symptoms, number of extranodal sites, bone marrow and testicular involvement.

Introduction. Inflammatory pseudotumor is an uncommon entity, and its cardiac origin is exceedingly rare. Case History. A previously healthy 27-year-old man was found to have a systolic murmur during preemployment screening evaluation. A transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a 4 × 2.5 cm mass originating from the right ventricle (RV) outflow tract extending into the aortic root. A computed tomography guided biopsy confirmed an IgG4-related inflammatory pseudotumor. Patient was started on oral prednisone with subsequent reduction in mass size. Conclusion. Cardiac inflammatory pseudotumors are markedly rare tumors that should be considered in the differential of intracardiac tumors which otherwise includes cardiac fibromas, myxomas, and sarcomas.

A 31-year-old woman suffering from diabetes type1 and terminal kidney disease, with simultaneously transplanted kidney and pancreas, developed an episode of acute organ rejection caused by antibodies. The management of organ rejection was complicated by cytomegalovirus viremia, with accompanying leukopenia and neutropenia. The patient also developed invasive aspergillosis of the lungs, which progressed and disseminated hematogenously to the thyroid gland and the skin. Due to resistance to classical antimycotic therapy, the patient was treated with a combination of caspofungin and variconazole. In the beginning of treatment, the effects of this combined therapy were not evident due to strong immunosuppression caused by antimycotic immunoglobulin, which the patient had been administered on her previous hospital stay to treat acute kidney transplant rejection caused by antibodies, as well as due to immunosuppression caused by tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and prednisone. On combined therapy with antimycotic drugs and supportive therapy, the patient was completely cured.

In all, 21 patients had isolated head and neck sarcoidosis and a further 8 patients showed concomitant pulmonary sarcoidosis. Two patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis developed subsequent head and neck manifestation. Most patients with isolated head and neck sarcoidosis did not receive systemic therapy. None exhibited relapsing disease. Three patients with head and neck manifestation underwent corticosteroid pulse. Complete remission (CR) was detected for all after 5 months. Six patients were treated with stable-dose corticosteroids. Five of 6 showed CR after 12 months and 1 of 6 patients partial remission (PR) after 24 months. Five of 6 patients exhibited relapses. Two patients underwent adalimumab therapy and showed PR after 65 or CR after 26 months, respectively.

To our best knowledge, this is the first report of choroiditis and secondary CNV associated with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. In cases of recurrent CNV associated with choroiditis, systemic therapy should be strongly considered in conjunction with antiangiogenic therapy. The recurrence of CNV with tapering of oral steroids and the remission of CNV with steroid-sparing immunomodulatory therapy support the role of ongoing inflammation in the pathogenesis.

Rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone (R-CHOP) is one of the most frequently applied initial treatments for indolent B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL); however, information on its long-term outcome is limited. Untreated patients in the concurrent arm (Arm C) received six R (375 mg/m(2) ) treatments, 2 days prior to each cycle of CHOP, and patients in the sequential arm (Arm S) received 6 weekly R (375 mg/m(2) ) treatments following six cycles of CHOP. Sixty-nine patients were randomized but two patients were withdrawn before receiving the protocol treatment. Sixty-five patients (94%) had follicular lymphoma, and 37 (55%) were at low risk, 23 (34%) at intermediate risk and seven (10%) at high risk according to the Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index. We previously reported that the overall response rate (ORR) in Arm C and in Arm S was 94% and 97%, respectively. The median progression-free survival (PFS)/7-year PFS rate in Arm C, Arm S and all 67 assessable patients was 2.4 years/23% (95% confidence interval [CI], 9-40%), 3.8 years/41% (95% CI, 23-57%) and 2.8 years/32% (95% CI, 20-45%), respectively. There was no significant difference between the two arms (P = 0.107). The overall survival (OS) of the 67 patients was 95% at 7 years. In conclusion, R-CHOP is a highly effective initial treatment for untreated indolent B-NHL in terms of ORR and OS; however, its long-term PFS is not good enough either in concurrent or sequential combination, warranting further investigations on post-remission therapy.
In this study, 6 patients with CM were identified among 631 patients with SLE. The demographic, clinical, laboratory profiles, serological features and outcomes of these 6 SLE patients with CM were retrospectively analyzed.

The databases including PubMed and abstracts presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology meetings up to April 2014 were systematically searched. Eligible studies included randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in which abiraterone plus prednisone was compared to placebo plus prednisone in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) patients. The summary incidence, relative risk, hazard ratio and 95%CI were calculated using random or fixed-effects models. Heterogeneity test was performed to test between-study differences in efficacy and toxicity.

The patient was a 70-year-old man. Hepatic dysfunction was found in 1988 and chronic hepatitis C was diagnosed in 1993. He received interferon-alpha therapy, but did not respond to it. Thereafter, he was treated with ursodeoxycholic acid. In September 2010, abdominal ultrasound showed a hypoechoic tumor (29 × 25 mm) in the lower pole of the spleen, and this lesion became larger one year later (74 × 66 × 71 mm). Abdominal CT revealed a hypovascular heterogeneous tumor with smooth margins on both dynamic and delayed phase scans. MRI displayed a tumor with a low signal intensity on T2WI. Abdominal angiography confirmed that the lesion was hypovascular. 67Ga scintigraphy showed abnormal accumulation confined to the spleen. Bone marrow biopsy did not reveal any abnormalities. Based on these findings, primary splenic malignant lymphoma (PSML) complicating chronic hepatitis C was diagnosed and splenectomy was performed. A tumor (78 × 60 mm) was found in the lower pole of the resected spleen and pathologic examination revealed diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Four courses of postoperative R-CHOP therapy were performed. At present, he continues to use ursodeoxycholic acid with no recurrence after four years. In conclusion, we report our experience of a patient who had PSML complicating chronic hepatitis C with discussion of the literature.

We present the case of a 49-year-old man who developed pulmonary abscess as a complication of transbronchial lung cryobiopsy. He had been receiving prednisone therapy, but otherwise had no specific risk factors for lung abscess. Cryobiopsy is a novel technique for obtaining peripheral lung parenchymal tissue for the evaluation of diffuse parenchymal lung diseases. Cryobiopsy is being increasingly proposed as an alternative to surgical lung biopsy or conventional bronchoscopic transbronchial forceps biopsy, but the safety profile of the procedure has not been fully appreciated. Pulmonary abscess has been rarely reported as a complication of other bronchoscopic procedures such as endobronchial ultrasound-guided needle biopsy, however, to our knowledge this is the first reported case of pulmonary abscess complicating peripheral lung cryobiopsy.

Men treated with MOPP had a significantly reduced height with normal body proportions. Women treated with MOPP had decreased BMD-TB and bone mineral apparent density of the lumbar spine as compared with healthy controls. Percent body fat was significantly increased in female patients treated without MOPP. Body mass index was significantly increased in male patients treated without MOPP, whereas lean body mass was normal in all patients. All patients, except one, treated with chemotherapy only had normal thyroid function. However, five patients who received additional radiation to the thyroid either had abnormal levels of TSH or free T4, or used thyroid hormones.
