Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-Cell lymphoma, leg type mimicking subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma in a COVID-19 setting: case report and review of literature.

Dermatol Online J 2021 Dec 15;27(12). Epub 2021 Dec 15.

Departamento de Docencia e Investigacion, Escuela de Medicina, Universidad Internacional del Ecuador, Quito, Ecuador Servicio de Patologia, Hospital Metropolitano, Quito, Ecuador.

Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type is a rare entity accounting for 4% of all primary cutaneous lymphomas whose clinical presentation encompasses a range of possibilities. COVID-19 has caused a delay in diagnosis of malignant neoplasms and consequently, this has resulted in poorer prognoses. A 62-year-old woman presented with two smooth-surfaced, mobile, well-circumscribed, oval, skin-colored nodules approximately one-cm in diameter with nonerythematous borders on the lower third of the left leg.

Integrative diagnosis of primary cutaneous large B-cell lymphomas supports the relevance of cell of origin profiling.

PLoS One 2022 22;17(4):e0266978. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Tumor Biology and Tumor Bank Department, University Hospital of Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France.

Primary cutaneous large B-cell lymphomas (PCLBCL) represent a diagnostic challenge because they are classified as PCLBCL, leg type (PCLBCL, LT) or primary cutaneous follicle centre lymphoma, large cell (PCFCL, LC), which differ by prognosis and therapeutic requirement. Unclassified cases with discordant clinical presentations, morphologies, and immunophenotypes may be classified into the not otherwise specified (PCLBCL, NOS) category based on ancillary molecular analyses. Cell-of-origin profiling as germinal centre (GC) type or non-GC type by immunohistochemistry is not considered reproducible because of variable CD10 expression. Read More

Secreted phospholipase A modifies extracellular vesicles and accelerates B cell lymphoma.

Cell Metab 2022 Apr 15;34(4):615-633.e8. Epub 2022 Mar 15.

Department of Innovative Medical Science, Tokai University School of Medicine, Isehara, Japan; Division of Hematological Malignancy, Institute of Medical Sciences, Tokai University, Isehara, Japan. Electronic address:

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) including exosomes act as intercellular communicators by transferring protein and microRNA cargoes, yet the role of EV lipids remains unclear. Here, we show that the pro-tumorigenic action of lymphoma-derived EVs is augmented via secreted phospholipase A (sPLA)-driven lipid metabolism. Hydrolysis of EV phospholipids by group X sPLA, which was induced in macrophages of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) lymphoma, increased the production of fatty acids, lysophospholipids, and their metabolites.

Numerous spindle-shaped lymphoma cells in lymphomatosis cerebri: An autopsy case report.

Neuropathology 2022 Mar 9. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

Institute for Medical Science of Aging, Aichi Medical University, Nagakute, Japan.

Lymphomatosis cerebri (LC) is a rare variant of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). It is characterized by diffuse infiltration of atypical lymphoid cells with no mass formation and little or no contrast enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Interestingly, some lymphoma cells form characteristic spindle shapes; these cells are found in some variants of malignant lymphoma, such as primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma, but they have not been reported in PCNSL or LC.

J Investig Med High Impact Case Rep 2022 Jan-Dec;10:23247096211063066

The University of Toledo, OH, USA.

Malignancies have been associated with paraneoplastic syndromes, such as dermatomyositis. Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) can occur due to a wide array of cancers. Paraneoplastic SCLE obeys McLean's criteria and often regresses after the underlying malignancy has been treated appropriately. Read More

Deep Sequencing of Immunoglobulin Genes Identifies a Very Low Percentage of Monoclonal B Cells in Primary Cutaneous Marginal Zone Lymphomas with CD30-Positive Hodgkin/Reed-Sternberg-like Cells.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Jan 24;12(2). Epub 2022 Jan 24.

Haematopathology Unit, IRCCS Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria di Bologna, 40138 Bologna, Italy.

The spectrum of cutaneous CD30-positive lymphoproliferative disorders encompasses both inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. CD30+ Hodgkin and Reed-Sternberg-like cells have been occasionally reported in primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma, where they are thought to represent a side neoplastic component within a dominant background of lymphomatous small B cells. Herein, we describe the histological and molecular findings of three cases of primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphomas with CD30+ H/RS cells, in which next-generation sequencing analysis revealed the clonal population to consist in less than 5% of the cutaneous B-cell infiltrate, providing a thought-provoking focus on a possible main role for CD30+ cells in primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoproliferations.

Cutaneous presentation of disseminated cytomegalovirus infection in a non-transplant patient with hematological malignancy: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2022 Feb;101(5):e28721

Department of Internal Medicine, National Taiwan University Hospital and National Taiwan University College of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan.

Rationale: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease is relatively uncommon in nontransplant hematological patients. Moreover, cutaneous manifestations of CMV diseases have scarcely been reported and are probably under-recognized.

Patient Concerns: We describe a patient with large B-cell lymphoma who developed a band-form, erythematous lesion over his left abdomen soon after the second course of rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisolone chemotherapy. Read More
