Cause-specific mortality among medicare beneficiaries with newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes.

Cancer 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Background: As the US population ages and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)-specific mortality declines, deaths from causes other than NHL will become increasingly important in treatment decision making for older patients with NHL. The objective of the current study was to describe how the 5-year cumulative incidence of NHL-specific and other-cause mortality varies by subtype, age, comorbidity level, and time since diagnosis in older patients.

Methods: Using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results cancer registry data linked to Medicare claims, patients aged ≥66 years were identified at the time of diagnosis with a first, primary NHL diagnosis from 2004 through 2013. Read More

Decreased progranulin expression in Mycosis fungoides: a possible association with the high frequency of skin infections.

Eur J Dermatol 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

University of Tokyo Graduate School of Medicine, Department of Dermatology, Tokyo, Japan.

Progranulin (PGRN) is a multi-functional protein known to be involved in diverse biological processes, including tumourigenesis, anti-inflammation, and anti-infection. PGRN expression in sera or tissues is elevated in a variety of malignancies and is associated with poor prognosis. However, it remains to be determined whether PGRN is involved in Mycosis fungoides (MF). Read More

Update on skin directed therapies in mycosis fungoides.

Chin Clin Oncol 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Mycosis fungoides (MF) represents the majority of the primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL). Most have early stage MF with localised patches and plaques, which has a favourable survival outcome, but nearly a quarter progress to late stage with tumours, erythroderma, and systemic involvement. Management is based on stage directed treatment with early stage MF (IA-IIA) using skin directed therapies (SDTs), including topical corticosteroids (TCS), chlormethine or retinoids, phototherapy, and radiotherapy (localised or total skin electron beam therapy).

Valchlor maintenance therapy for patients with mycosis fungoides who received low dose total skin electron beam treatment.

Chin Clin Oncol 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma within the general population. Low dose total skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT) and topical nitrogen mustard (Valchlor) are two treatment modalities that have been proven to be efficacious in the treatment of MF. While each have been studied independently in various clinical trials, the use of Valchlor as maintenance therapy after completion of low dose TSEBT is rarely implemented due to the lack of evidence in the literature.

Chin Clin Oncol 2018 Sep 17. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma is a rare group of malignancies characterized by the proliferation of CD4+ T-cells, of which mycosis fungoides (MF) is the predominant subtype. The neoplastic lymphocytes of MF are extremely radiosensitive and even low doses of radiation can produce excellent responses. As such, radiotherapy (RT) is considered to be the most efficacious single agent treatment option for MF. Read More

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) Clermont-Ferrand, Dermatology Department, Centre Hospitalier Estaing, 1 place Lucie Aubrac, 63100, Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Large-cell transformation in mycosis fungoides (MF) is usually encountered in tumors and is associated with prognosis worsening. It is defined by the onset of more than 25% of lymphocytes, usually expressing CD30, exceeding 4 times the size of normal lymphocytes, either diffuse or organized in sheets in the dermal infiltrate. Recently, an unusual biphasic pathologic pattern was reported in lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) and primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) which was constantly associated with DUSP22-IRF4 gene rearrangement .

Antibody-Based Therapies for Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd, Unit 1452, Houston, TX, 77030-4009, USA.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are a group of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas that present in the skin. In early-stage disease, the course is generally chronic and indolent; however, in advanced stages of disease, therapies rarely provide long-lasting responses, and the only potential curative therapy is allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. This has led to the search for novel targeted therapies to better treat more advanced stages of CTCLs that cannot be controlled by typical treatment regimens. Read More

Eur J Dermatol 2018 Oct;28(5):621-627

Department of Dermatology, University of Tokyo Graduate School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: High mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) is a ubiquitously expressed non-histone nuclear protein which acts as a danger signal when released from cells. HMGB1, which is associated with inflammation, angiogenesis, and T helper (Th)2 polarization, contributes to the development of various inflammatory diseases and malignancies. However, it remains to be determined whether HMGB1 is involved in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Read More

Syringotropic Lichen Planus: A Potential Histopathologic Mimicker of Syringotropic Mycosis Fungoides.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Oct 24. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Research Unit Dermatopathology, Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Perieccrine inflammation may be observed in several different dermatoses, but true permeation of the secretory coil by lymphocytes (lymphocytic syringotropism) is a rather uncommon finding, usually observed in mycosis fungoides (MF-syringotropic MF). Rare cases of syringotropic lichen striatus and lymphocytic autoimmune hidradenitis showing a similar pattern have been described as well. We describe an exceptional case of lichen planus (LP) characterized by marked lymphocytic syringotropism with focal hyperplasia of the eccrine epithelium. Read More

Prevalence and Viral Loads of Cutaneous Human Polyomaviruses in the Skin of Patients with Chronic Inflammatory Skin Diseases.

J Infect Dis 2018 Oct 23. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Department of Microbiology and Infection, Kochi Medical School, Kochi University, Kochi, Japan.

Background: Human skin microorganisms have been associated with various skin diseases. However, most studies have focused on bacterial communities and little is known about normally resident skin viruses such as the Polyomaviridae and their association with cutaneous disorders.

Methods: We investigated the infection levels of Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV), human polyomavirus 6 (HPyV6) and human polyomavirus 7 (HPyV7), using triplet skin swabs collected from lesional and nonlesional skins of 86 Japanese patients with inflammatory skin diseases and mycosis fungoides, and from 149 healthy control individuals.

Mycosis fungoides in Taiwan shows a relatively high frequency of large cell transformation and CD56 expression.

Pathology 2018 Dec 20;50(7):718-724. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

Department of Pathology, Chi-Mei Medical Center, Tainan, Taiwan; Department of Pathology, School of Medicine, Taipei Medical University and National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is an indolent cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and may transform into large cell lymphoma in the disease course. The incidence of MF in Taiwan is lower as compared to that in the West. In this study we aimed to characterise the clinicopathological, immunohistochemical, and genetic features of transformed MF (t-MF) in Taiwan. Read More

Naïve/Memory T-Cell Phenotypes in Leukemic Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma: Putative Cell of Origin Overlaps Disease Classification.

Cytometry B Clin Cytom 2018 Oct 16. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Hematopathology and Laboratory Medicine, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, Florida.

Background: Mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary Syndrome (SS) are clinically distinct cutaneous T-cell lymphomas with strikingly similar morphologic and phenotypic features. Prior studies have suggested phenotypic differences based on markers of antigen experience, suggesting a different cell of origin.

Methods: Seventy-nine involved peripheral blood or bone marrow samples from 33 patients with SS and 19 patients with MF were studied by 10-color flow cytometry, including CD62L, CD45RA, CCR4, and PD-1. Read More

Utility of CD30, Ki-67, and p53 in assisting with the diagnosis of mycosis fungoides with large cell transformation.

J Cutan Pathol 2018 Oct 16. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Dermatology, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Palo Alto, California.

Introduction: Mycosis fungoides (MF) with large cell transformation (LCT) is an advanced stage of cutaneous lymphoma with a poor prognosis. Identification of LCT is critical and especially challenging when the number of large abnormal lymphocytes is near but below 25%. We propose that Ki-67 and p53 may be useful in making this diagnosis.

Franz Trautinger

Photochem Photobiol Sci 2018 Dec;17(12):1904-1912

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences, University Hospital of St. Pölten, Austria.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are a heterogenous group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas arising in the skin. Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common variant, is characterised by clonal proliferation of skin residing malignant T-cells. Initially appearing with erythematous patches and plaques it follows a chronic course with progression to cutaneous tumours and extracutaneous involvement in some patients. Read More

Solitary plaque on the leg of a child: A report of two cases and a brief review of acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children and unilesional mycosis fungoides.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Oct 15. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

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.
