A case of primary marginal zone B-cell lymphoma in an elderly female patient is presented. Primary breast lymphomas are rare, comprising less than 1 per cent of all breast malignancies. These tumors have no clinical, pathologic, or radiologic pathognomonic features to distinguish them from breast adenocarcinoma. The diagnosis is usually made with an excisional biopsy, and more extensive surgery should be avoided. Delivery of radiation therapy and chemotherapy is tailored according to the histologic grade, stage of disease, and overall patient condition. This report summarizes the current knowledge reflected in the literature.

    Anaplastic large cell lymphoma is a rare type of primary breast lymphoma. We report a case of anaplastic large cell lymphoma, T-cell phenotype, occurring in the periprosthetic capsule of a silicone breast prosthesis 9 years after implantation for augmentation mammoplasty. This case is unique for...

    To date, the biological significance of breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) G34A and C421A polymorphisms is largely unknown. Analysis of these two polymorphisms in 156 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients and 376 control subjects revealed an increased risk of DLBCL associated with...

    We describe a 65-year-old man diagnosed with Burkitt's lymphoma arising from the intestine. The tumor cells had a mature B-cell immunophenotype and rearrangement of the c-myc gene. The patient was treated with intensive multiagent chemotherapy. After four courses of chemotherapy, an ileus...

    Results of conventional chemotherapy for high-risk peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) are poor compared with those for their aggressive B-cell counterparts. We aim to review the current data on the use of hematopoietic SCT in these patients in both frontline and salvage settings. With respect to...

    Prostate involvement by intravascular large B-cell lymphoma (IVLBL) is extremely rare. Until now, only 6 cases have been reported in the literature. In this article, the authors report a case of a 65-year-old Chinese man with IVLBL located in the prostate. The diagnosis of IVLBL was obtained...

    Primary bone lymphoma (PBL) is an uncommon tumor accounting for approximately 4-5% of extra nodal lymphoma and less than 1% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Disease may be complicated at presentation by pathological fracture or spinal cord compression. Diffuse large-B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL)...

    Extranodal marginal zone lymphoma is a low-grade B cell lymphoma that presents with an indolent clinicopathologic nature. Although this tumor can occur in various sites, including the gastrointestinal tract and lungs, it develops and spreads extremely rarely along the trachea and central airway....
