PET-adapted treatment for newly diagnosed advanced Hodgkin lymphoma (AHL2011): a randomised, multicentre, non-inferiority, phase 3 study.

Lancet Oncol 2019 Feb 15;20(2):202-215. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

LYSA Imaging, Hôpital H Mondor, Creteil, France.

Background: Increased-dose bleomycin, etoposide, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone (BEACOPP) improves progression-free survival in patients with advanced Hodgkin lymphoma compared with doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine (ABVD), but is associated with increased risks of haematological toxicity, secondary myelodysplasia or leukaemia, and infertility. We investigated whether PET monitoring during treatment could allow dose de-escalation by switching regimen (BEACOPP to ABVD) in early responders without loss of disease control compared with standard treatment without PET monitoring.

Methods: AHL2011 is a randomised, non-inferiority, phase 3 study done in 90 centres across Belgium and France. Read More

Gadolinium-enhanced imaging of pediatric thoracic lymphoma: is intravenous contrast really necessary?

Eur Radiol 2019 May 13;29(5):2553-2559. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, University Hospital Frankfurt, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7, 60590, Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

Objectives: Increasing awareness of potential side effects from gadolinium-based contrast agents has underlined the need for contrast-free magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Numerous recent articles evaluated the risk of potential brain deposits, with the result that research is putting the focus more on alternative unenhanced imaging techniques. The aim of this study was to determine the need for contrast media for chest MRI in primary staging and follow-up care of lymphoma. Read More

PET/CT Imaging for Solitary Primary Bone Lymphoma of Thoracic Vertebra.

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Nov;43(11):857-859

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Primary bone lymphoma without classic nodal lesions or advanced disease may be mistaken for other osseous diseases, especially when involving a single bone site. In this patient, a series of imaging modalities including MRI, bone scan, and F-FDG PET/CT revealed only 1 solitary osseous lytic lesion with abnormal uptake in the third thoracic vertebra, suggesting a primary skeletal malignancy. The subsequent histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Read More

Management of adverse events associated with idelalisib treatment in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and follicular lymphoma: A multidisciplinary position paper.

Hematol Oncol 2019 Feb 5;37(1):3-14. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Institute of Hematology Lorenzo e Ariosto Seràgnoli, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

The introduction of new therapeutic agents in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and follicular lymphoma (FL), including the new kinase inhibitor idelalisib, has changed the therapeutic landscape of these diseases. However, the use of idelalisib is associated with a peculiar profile of side effects, which require an optimization of the current approach to prophylaxis and supportive treatment. Moving from the recognition that the abovementioned issue represents an unmet need in CLL and FL, a multidisciplinary panel of experts was convened to produce a consensus document aiming to provide practical recommendations for the management of the side effects during idelalisib therapy for CLL and FL.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2018 Jul-Sep;61(3):383-388

Department of Pathology, Military Hospital, Jalandhar, Punjab, India.

Tuberculosis (TB) and Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) share similar clinical and radiological features, which make diagnosis a challenge. It is often difficult to rule out a diagnosis of extrapulmonary and/or disseminated TB because of its paucibacillary nature and difficulty in accessing the involved organs. In countries with high prevalence of TB like ours, empirical antitubercular treatment (ATT) is started, and the patient is followed up closely for response. Read More

Misdiagnosis of primary pleural DLBCL as tuberculosis: A case report and literature review.

Mol Clin Oncol 2018 Jun 2;8(6):729-732. Epub 2018 Apr 2.

The Central Laboratory, The First Hospital of Jiaxing, Jiaxing, Zhejiang 314001, P.R. China.

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). DLBCL presents with pleural involvement at an advanced stage; however, primary pleural lymphomas without any other site of involvement are rare, and the possibility of misdiagnosis is high, particularly in developing countries, where tuberculosis or other severe pulmonary infections remain a major health concern. Furthermore, lymphoma and tuberculosis share a number of common clinical characteristics, such as fever, night sweats, feeling of satiety after a small meal, fatigue and unexplained weight loss, among others.

Dogs with acute myeloid leukemia or lymphoid neoplasms (large cell lymphoma or acute lymphoblastic leukemia) may have indistinguishable mediastinal masses on radiographs.

Vet Radiol Ultrasound 2018 Sep 3;59(5):507-515. Epub 2018 May 3.

The Departments of Clinical Sciences and Population Medicine & Diagnostic Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, 14853.

Acute myeloid leukemia is an uncommon hematopoietic neoplasm of dogs that should be differentiated from lymphoid neoplasms, such as lymphoma, because of different treatment protocols and a worse prognosis. Thoracic radiography is performed frequently in dogs with suspected hematopoietic neoplasia, and detecting a mediastinal mass often prioritizes lymphoma as the most likely diagnosis. However, we have observed a mediastinal mass in several dogs with acute myeloid leukemia and hypothesized that (1) the frequency of a mediastinal mass was higher and (2) the size of the mass was larger in dogs with acute myeloid leukemia compared to dogs with lymphoid neoplasms.

The first therapeutic proteasome inhibitor bortezomib has clinical efficacy in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) which resulted in its incorporation in treatment algorithms for this disease. Impairment of proteasomal function by bortezomib is mediated via inhibition of the 20S core particle. However, proteasome function can also be modified by targeting upstream components of the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Read More

Folliculotropic Mycosis Fungoides Associated with Autoimmune Hepatitis.

Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2017 Oct;25(3):248-250

Prof. Romana Čeović, MD, PhD, University Hospital Center Zagreb, Department of Dermatology and Venereology School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, 10000 Zagreb, Šalata 4, Croatia;

Dear Editor, the association between lymphomas and autoimmune manifestations, as well as the prevalence of the cases of coexistent lymphomas and autoimmune conditions, has not been completely established (1-3). Since cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) cases are rare, any hypothesis can only be based on case reports or small case series. We present the case of a male patient with folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF) and synchronous autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) with extremely high levels of cancer antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9). Read More
