Systemic mastocytosis (SM) is a myeloid neoplasm characterized by abnormal growth and accumulation of neoplastic mast cells in at least one extracutaneous site. Clinical presentation and course are variable, most patients developing an indolent disease and some, an aggressive/leukemic form. Because of its rarity, most physicians are unfamiliar with this disease and do not readily diagnose it. Read More

Long-Term Follow-Up of Multiple Myeloma Patients Treated with Tandem Autologous Transplantation Following Melphalan and Upon Recovery, Total Marrow Irradiation.

Transplant Cell Ther 2022 May 6. Epub 2022 May 6.

Department of Radiation Oncology, City of Hope National Medical Center, Duarte, CA. Electronic address:

Background: Total body irradiation in combination with melphalan for multiple myeloma (MM), was shown to be prohibitively toxic. To ameliorate toxicity, total marrow irradiation (TMI), was given as the sole ablative modality during the second cycle of tandem autologous stem cell transplant (TASCT) for MM patients on a phase I-II trial.

Study Design: Patients with MM in response or with stable disease and ≤ 18 months from diagnosis received melphalan (MEL) 200 mg/m and ASCT (Cycle 1), and, after recovery, TMI and ASCT (Cycle 2) followed by maintenance with an IMiD and dexamethasone for up to 12 months. Read More

Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm With Central Nervous System Involvement: A Case Report.

Cureus 2022 Apr 6;14(4):e23888. Epub 2022 Apr 6.

Hematopathology, Synlab, Medellín, COL.

Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm is a rare hematologic neoplasm characterized by cutaneous, hematologic, and central nervous system (CNS) involvement with poor prognosis. Diagnosis is made by flow cytometry, although there are no specific markers, making its diagnosis challenging. So far, with the available evidence, acute lymphoid leukemia-type schemes and consolidation with allogeneic transplant seem to become the first-line therapy. Read More

Hypercalcemia as the Initial Presentation of Acute T-cell Leukemia/Lymphoma.

Cureus 2022 Mar 31;14(3):e23705. Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Department of Dermatology, New York University, New York, USA.

Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is a T-cell malignancy that generally presents with widespread involvement of lymph nodes, peripheral blood, and/or skin. It is an uncommon malignancy linked to the human T-lymphotropic virus 1 (HTLV-1). Herein, we present a case of ATLL that was diagnosed after a patient presented to our hospital with nonspecific symptoms of fatigue and weakness and was subsequently found to have hypercalcemia secondary to his blood malignancy.

Hum Mutat 2022 Apr 14. Epub 2022 Apr 14.

Section of Hematology/Oncology and Center for Clinical Cancer Genetics, University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

To avoid acquired variants found in the blood, cultured skin fibroblasts are a recommended DNA source for germline genetic testing in patients with hematologic disorders, but data are lacking regarding practicality and limitations. We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 350 subjects with hematologic disorders who underwent skin fibroblast culture for germline genetic testing. We analyzed next-generation sequencing data from the targeted capture of 144 inherited cancer and bonemarrow failure genes to identify variants at heterozygous and subclonal variant allele frequencies.

Mouse models of graft-versus-host disease.

Methods Cell Biol 2022 17;168:41-66. Epub 2022 Jan 17.

Bone Marrow Transplantation & Leukemia, Oncology Division, Department of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO, United States.

Transplantation of allogeneic hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (allo-HCT) allows for cure of life-limiting malignant and non-malignant hematologic diseases. Crossing the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) barrier, however, comes at the cost of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), a life-threatening syndrome mediated in part by the same donor T-lymphocytes that eliminate malignant cells. Acute GVHD occurs in the skin, gut, and/or liver in 25-55% of patients with a mortality rate of 15-40%, while chronic GVHD develops in 30-65% of patients who survive at least 3 months following allo-HCT and is highly debilitating in its extensive form, with a 30-50% 5year mortality rate stemming in part from immune dysregulation and opportunistic infections.

Total-Body Irradiation Is Associated With Increased Incidence of Mesenchymal Neoplasia in a Radiation Late Effects Cohort of Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta).

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2022 Mar 28. Epub 2022 Mar 28.

Department of Pathology, Section on Comparative Medicine; Department of Radiation Oncology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Electronic address:

Purpose: Cancer is a severe delayed effect of acute radiation exposure. Total-body irradiation has been associated with an increased risk of solid cancer and leukemia in Japanese atomic bomb survivors, and secondary malignancies, such as sarcoma, are a serious consequence of cancer radiation therapy. The radiation late effects cohort (RLEC) of rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) is a unique resource of more than 200 animals for studying the long-term consequences of total-body irradiation in an animal model that closely resembles humans at the genetic and physiologic levels.
