Malakoplakia in Thoracic Transplant Recipients.

Transplant Proc 2019 Apr 8;51(3):871-874. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Electronic address:

Malakoplakia is a rare granulomatous disease characterized by the presence of Michaelis-Gutmann bodies on histopathologic analysis. Lesions manifest in a wide range of organs with cutaneous, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary systems being most common, and often result in significant comorbidities owing largely to misdiagnoses and the similar appearance to malignancy or granulomatous processes. Most patients are immunocompromised, including the solid-organ transplant population. Read More

Malakoplakia of the colon following renal transplantation in a 73 year old woman: report of a case presenting as intestinal perforation.

Diagn Pathol 2019 Mar 13;14(1):22. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Radiology, Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, 5415 Boulevard de L'Assomption, Montreal, QC, Canada.

Background: Malakoplakia is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by tissue infiltrates of large granular macrophages containing distinctive intracytoplasmic inclusions termed Michaelis-Gutmann (MG) bodies. The genitourinary system is the most commonly involved site, followed by the gastrointestinal tract. Malakoplakia may occur as a complication of primary or secondary immunosuppression and, therefore, renal transplant recipients are at risk. Read More

An Unusual Association of Renal Cell Carcinoma and Renal Malakoplakia with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis in an Elderly Patient.

Indian J Nephrol 2018 Nov-Dec;28(6):485-487

Department of Nephrology Madras Medical Mission Hospital, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

The association of malignancy and glomerulonephritis may be missed, especially in elderly patients. Here, we report a case of eosinophilic variant of renal cell carcinoma and renal parenchymal malakoplakia discovered on renal biopsy in a patient with steroid-dependent nephrotic syndrome. The presence of malakoplakia in our biopsy was probably due to systemic steroid therapy for glomerulonephritis, presence of concomitant asymptomatic urinary tract infection, and/or history of diabetes mellitus.

Urol J 2018 Dec 26. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

2Medical Researcher, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences,

Malakoplakia is a granulomatous disorder caused by infectious process. It was described by Von Hanseman in 1901 for the first time and then by Michaelis and Gutman in 1902.  Although the most frequent site of involvement is genitourinary tract, various organs have been reported to be affected.

Department of Pathology, St. Jude Medical Center, Fullerton, CA 92835, United States. Electronic address:

The alimentary tract serves as host to a large number of diseases. In the non-neoplastic group of disorders, conventional histochemistry continues to play an important diagnostic role. It is particularly important in recognizing specific infectious diseases, such as Helicobacter gastritis, Whipple disease, intestinal tuberculosis and other forms of mycobacteriosis, malakoplakia, intestinal spirochetosis, fungal enteritides, amebiasis, cryptosporidiosis, isosporiasis, and microsporidiosis.

Isolated malakoplakia of the prostate is a rare inflammatory condition that has been clinically mistaken for prostatic malignancies. The development of Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) classifications, and Prostate Health Index (PHI) has led to more accurate diagnosis of clinically significant disease and stratification of patients that may be at risk of prostate cancer.

Malakoplakia is a granulomatous disease associated with an infectious etiology, usually involving the urinary tract. It reveals itself as a recurrent urinary tract infection (r-UTI), and in some cases, it is associated with impairment of renal function. Immunosuppression is one of its main associated factors, and it has been increasingly described in patients with solid organ transplantation (SOT), mainly kidney transplantation. Read More

Malakoplakia is a rare inflammatory disorder and tumor mimicker usually occurring in the urinary tract, may occasionally be found in gall bladder. Here, we present a rare case, presenting as gall bladder mass in a known case of gallstone disease, clinically suspected as carcinoma and later turned out to be malakoplakia in gall bladder.

Responsible infectious agents may be mycobacterial, fungal, treponemal, or parasitic organisms, and each case of granulomatous dermatitis should be assessed histochemically for those microbes.

Malakoplakia of the Urinary Bladder in a Patient with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Under Ibrutinib Therapy: A Case Report.

Anticancer Res 2016 09;36(9):4759-62

Department of Anatomic Pathology, Evangelismos General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Malakoplakia, a rare granulomatous disease of infectious etiology, is commonly observed in immunocompromised patients. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is characterized by profound immune dysregulation resulting in significant infection-related morbidity and mortality, and several drugs used in CLL treatment have a severe immunosuppressive effect. Ibrutinib, has become a new standard-of-care in patients with CLL, especially for those harboring unfavorable genetic characteristics such as 17 p deletion, with however, unknown long-term immunological consequences.

Curr Probl Diagn Radiol 2017 Jan - Feb;46(1):74-83. Epub 2016 Feb 11.

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, St. Louis, MO.

This article provides pictorial review of complicated upper and lower genitourinary infections and their mimics. Imaging features of upper urinary tract infections including uncomplicated acute pyelonephritis, xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGPN), emphysematous pyelonephritis, perirenal abscess, and pyonephrosis are first reviewed and then followed by pictorial review of their mimics including contrast-associated nephrotoxicity, renal infarcts, malakoplakia, renal cell cancer, leukemia or lymphoma and Castleman's disease. Next, imaging features of lower urinary tract infections including cystitis, emphysematous cystitis, enterovesical, colovesical and vesicovaginal fistulas, Fournier gangrene, prostatitis, epididymitis, and orchitis are reviewed and then followed by pictorial review of their mimics including gas in the bladder and perineum related to instrumentation, radiation cystitis, bladder cancer, testicular torsion, testicular trauma, and testicular cancer and lymphoma.
