TCR-δ Expression and γδ+ T-cell Infiltrates in Primary Cutaneous Gamma-delta T-cell Lymphoma and other Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoproliferative Disorders.

Histopathology 2018 Jun 12. Epub 2018 Jun 12.

Department of Pathology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY.

Aims: The diagnosis of cutaneous gamma delta T-cell lymphoma (GDTCL) requires the identification of γδ chains of the T-cell receptor (TCR). Using a new mAb to TCRδ, we evaluated TCRδ expression in formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) skin tissue from TCRγ-positive cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) and assessed TCRδ expression within a spectrum of other cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorders (CLPD).

Methods And Results: 12 cases (10 patients) with TCRγ-positive CTCL and 132 additional CLPD cases (127 patients) were examined including mycosis fungoides (MF, n=60), cutaneous GDTCL (n=15), subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphomas (SPTCL, n=11), and CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders (CD30+LPDs, n=24).

School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW 2678, Australia; Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovations, Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia.

Tongue worms utilise herbivorous mammals as intermediate hosts and reside in the nasopharynx of carnivores as their definitive hosts. A recent study in south eastern Australia showed an unexpectedly high infection (67%) of wild dogs with these parasites. The present study aimed at determining the pathogenicity of the parasite in both definitive (dog) and intermediate (cattle) hosts by histopathology. Read More

Subcutaneous Panniculitis-Like T-Cell Lymphoma Versus Lupus Erythematosus Panniculitis: Distinction by Means of the Periadipocytic Cell Proliferation Index.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 May 2. Epub 2018 May 2.

Departments of Pathology and Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco, CA.

The distinction between subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (SPTCL) and lupus erythematosus (LE) panniculitis is remarkably challenging. Rimming by lymphocytes with an elevated Ki-67 cell proliferation index has been forwarded as a potential diagnostic finding in biopsies of SPTCL but has not been rigorously compared with biopsies from patients with LE panniculitis. Nineteen and 17 examples of SPTCL and LE panniculitis, respectively, were evaluated for periadipocytic rimming by lymphocytes expressing Ki-67, CD8, and βF1 and for attributes associated with LE, including clusters of CD123-positive cells.
