Late cutaneous B-Cell pseudolymphoma after an upper-lid gold weight implant.

Contact Dermatitis 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Universitario Príncipe de Asturias, Madrid, Spain.

Upper eyelid gold weight implants are an established tool in the symptomatic treatment of lagophthalmos, the inability to close your eyes completely. Complications associated to this procedure are infrequent. When noted, non-infectious inflammatory reactions corresponding to type IV hypersensitivity reactions are resolved with the removal of the implant. Read More

Acute Dissemination With Encephalitis in the Era of Biological Therapies.

Open Forum Infect Dis 2018 Nov 17;5(11):ofy259. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Palo Alto Medical Foundation Toxoplasma Serology Laboratory, National Reference Center for the Study and Diagnosis of Toxoplasmosis, Palo Alto, California.

We report the case of a 65-year-old patient with pseudolymphoma who developed acute toxoplasmosis following 6 cycles of rituximab and bendamustine therapy. Acute toxoplasmosis in the setting of biological response modifiers, rather than reactivation, is a unique unreported infection. The patient developed severe disease with multi-organ involvement, including retinitis, myocarditis, and myositis. Read More

University Hospital "Dr. Jose Eleuterio Gonzalez", Department of Dermatology, Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon, Av. Madero y Gonzalitos s/n, Colonia Mitras Centro, 64460, Monterrey, NL, Mexico.

Lyme disease (borreliosis) is one of the most common vector-borne diseases worldwide. Its incidence and geographic expansion has been steadily increasing in the last decades. Lyme disease is caused by Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, a heterogeneous group of which three genospecies have been systematically associated to Lyme disease: B. Read More

Department of Dermatopathology, Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, California, USA.

Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type (DLBCLLT) is a rare, intermediately aggressive form of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (CBCL) that is characterized by the presence of large round cells on histopathology. Clinically, patients present with red-brown nodules on the distal legs. The prognosis is less favorable than other types of CBCLs, with a 5-year survival rate of 50%. Read More

Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, New York.

Acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children (APACHE) and unilesional mycosis fungoides (MF) are two rare dermatoses in the pediatric population which may have overlapping clinical and histopathologic features, making differentiation between these two diagnoses difficult. We present two similar cases of a solitary plaque on the thigh of a child, one representing APACHE and the other representing unilesional MF with granulomatous features, and we provide a brief overview of the clinical and histopathologic features of APACHE and unilesional MF.

Borreliosis in Sport Horse Practice.

Vet Clin North Am Equine Pract 2018 Aug;34(2):313-343

Newmarket-Indialantic Equine, Newmarket, NH, USA. Electronic address:

Given the variable clinical signs attributed to Borrelia burgdorferi, including infectious arthritis, neurologic disease, and behavioral changes, B burgdorferi is an important differential for decreased performance in sport horses. The primary vectors (Ixodes tick species) are expanding their range and thus Borrelia species are located in a wider area, making exposure more likely. Due to regionally high seroprevalence and vague clinical signs, diagnosis of Lyme disease in the horse is believed overestimated. Read More

Department of Pathology, University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

High-endothelial venules are a common feature of 3 types of cutaneous pseudolymphomas: pretibial lymphoplasmacytic plaque (PLP) of children, acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children (APACHE), and T-cell rich angiomatoid polypoid pseudolymphoma (TRAPP). In addition, primary cutaneous angioplasmacellular hyperplasia (PCAH) overlaps with these other 3 conditions.

Reactive Lymphoid Hyperplasia or Tubercular Lymphadenitis: Can Real-Time PCR on Fine-Needle Aspirates Help Physicians in Concluding the Diagnosis?

Acta Cytol 2018 15;62(3):204-208. Epub 2018 May 15.

Background: Enlarged lymph nodes in adult patients often present a diagnostic challenge. In the absence of granuloma or necrosis, the cytology/tissue findings are misleading and relate the enlarged lymph nodes to reactive lymphoid hyperplasia (RLH), because granuloma formation is an immunological response that usually takes 14-100 days to develop. This study assesses the role of real-time (RT)-PCR in the diagnosis of the Mycobacterium complex (MTBC) in lymph node aspirates compared with culture in cases of RLH. Read More

Atypical lymphocytic infiltrates of the skin comprise a broad spectrum of entities ranging from benign infiltrates to those that are malignant. Many of these infiltrates are in fact reactive lymphomatoid ones related to drug therapy falling under the general category of drug associated pseudolymphoma. Within this nosologic umbrella are nodular and diffuse infiltrates resembling low grade T and B cell lymphoma consistent with lymphocytoma cutis, drug associated reversible T cell dyscrasias which draw a strong morphologic and phenotypic parallel with mycosis fungoides and the various pre-lymphomatous T cell dyscrasias, and angiocentric CD30 positive infiltrates mirroring lymphomatoid papulosis.

Lyme disease classically evolves through clinical manifestations according to the stage of illness. Because many of the systemic symptoms are non-specific, and because serology may yield false negative results, cutaneous findings merit even greater importance to diagnosis. The prototypical skin lesion, erythema migrans (EM), occurs early and is the only independent diagnostic clinical feature according to the guidelines of the Infectious Diseases Society of America.

Clinical significance of PCDH10 promoter methylation in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

Background: PCDH10, one of the non-clustered protocadherins, is identified as a tumor suppressor gene in many tumors. Recently, promoter methylation of PCDH10 was found in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) but not in normal lymph nodes, suggesting that its epigenetic aberrance is essential to the lymphomagenesis. However, there are few studies on the clinicopathological relevance and prognostic significance of PCDH10 methylation status in DLBCL. Read More

These foreign substances may be free extracellular deposits or induce several clinical abnormalities or histopathological patterns. However, pathologists almost never investigate or report the chemical nature of exogenous metals in clinical specimens due to a lack of convenient and available technologies. Read More
