Unrelated cord blood transplantation for adult-onset EBV-associated T-cell and NK-cell lymphoproliferative disorders.

Int J Hematol 2022 Mar 10. Epub 2022 Mar 10.

Department of Hematology, Tohoku University Hospital, 1-1, Seiryo-machi, Aoba-ku, Sendai, Miyagi, 980-8574, Japan.

Adult-onset EBV-associated T-cell and NK-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (EBV-T/NK-LPDs) often progress rapidly, and require allogeneic stem cell transplantation early in the course of treatment. Unrelated cord blood transplantation (UCBT) is a readily available option for patients without HLA-matched donors. We retrospectively analyzed the outcomes of 12 UCBT in adult patients with chronic active EBV infection (CAEBV, n = 8), EBV-positive hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis following primary EBV infection (n = 2), hydroa vacciniforme-like lymphoproliferative disorder (n = 1), and systemic EBV-positive T-cell lymphoma of childhood (STCLC, n = 1).

Hydroa Vacciniforme and Hydroa Vacciniforme-Like Lymphoproliferative Disorder: A Spectrum of Disease Phenotypes Associated with Ultraviolet Irradiation and Chronic Epstein-Barr Virus Infection.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Dec 7;21(23). Epub 2020 Dec 7.

Department of Dermatology, National Cheng Kung University Hospital, College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan 704, Taiwan.

Hydroa vacciniforme (HV) is a rare form of photosensitivity disorder in children and is frequently associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection, whereas HV-like lymphoproliferative disorders (HVLPD) describe a spectrum of EBV-associated T-cell or natural killer (NK)-cell lymphoproliferations with HV-like cutaneous manifestations, including EBV-positive HV, atypical HV, and HV-like lymphoma. Classic HV occurs in childhood with papulovesicules on sun-exposed areas, which is usually induced by sunlight and ultraviolet irradiation, and mostly resolves by early adult life. Unlike classic HV, atypical or severe HV manifests itself as recurrent papulovesicular eruptions in sun-exposed and sun-protected areas associated occasionally with facial edema, fever, lymphadenopathy, oculomucosal lesions, gastrointestinal involvement, and hepatosplenomegaly.
