We present a patient who developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after eight years of azathioprine treatment for myasthenia gravis. He presented unusually with testicular lymphoma spreading to the prostate and the illness followed a particularly aggressive course. Read More

Primary malignant lymphoma of the prostate--a report of three cases.

Leuk Lymphoma 2001 Aug;42(4):809-11

Department of Oncology, Soroka University Medical Center, Faculty of Health Sciences, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel.

We report the clinical, morphological and immunohistochemical findings in 3 cases of primary non-Hodgkins malignant lymphoma of the prostate. After treatment with doxorubicin-based chemotherapy, two patients achieved a complete remission, and 1 died of infective endocarditis three months after diagnosis. Until a consensus has been reached regarding the optimal treatment of prostatic lymphoma, therapy should be determined by the histologic type diagnosed and stage of the lymphoma. Read More

Primary extranodal mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the prostate.

Leuk Lymphoma 2001 Apr;41(3-4):445-9

Department of Radiation Oncology; Tata Memorial Hospital, Dr Ernest Borges Road, Parel, Mumbai-400 012 India.

Low-grade B-cell mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma can rarely present primarily in extranodal sites other than stomach, which is the most common site for it. Until now only four cases of primary prostatic MALTomas have been described in the literature and we report the fifth. We describe a case of primary prostatic MALToma in a 67-year-old man and the diagnosis was made on the trans-urethral resection specimen of the prostate. Read More

The first patient was a 72 year old woman with an endometrioid carcinoma in whom NHL was found in the pelvic lymph nodes. The second patient was a 76 year-old man with adenocarcinoma of the stomach and NHL of the small intestine. Read More

T-cell lymphocytic lymphoma involving the prostate presenting as elevated PSA in paraplegia: case report.

J Spinal Cord Med 1996 Oct;19(4):258-60

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, USA.

The vast majority of cancers that involve the prostate are adenocarcinomas of the duct-acinar secretory epithelium. Other cancers, primarily leukemia and lymphoma, can involve the prostate and lead to an abnormal digital examination or elevated serum prostate specific antigen (PSA). The case discussed is that of a 62 year-old male with T12 complete paraplegia who presented with a persistently elevated PSA and was subsequently diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma involving the prostate.
