The article offers information about Castleman's disease, a lymphoproliferative disorder that causes the growth of benign tumors. The disease can be classified into localized and multicenter types through clinical processes. Scientific findings revealed various behavior differences from adults than in children, and it can be effectively treated through surgical method.

    Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) has been recognized as a clinically benign but often recurrent condition. The skin of patients is characterized by the presence of self-healing, ulcerative, and polymorphous papular or nodular and ulcerative lesions. Recent reports propose that LyP is one of several...

    The most recent advances in cutaneous lymphoma (CL) concern molecular diagnosis (including its relevance to staging), new clinico-pathologic entities, and treatment modalities. The main topics of interest in the molecular diagnosis of CL are early lesions and early involvement of lymph nodes and...

    Entry of quiescent cells into the cell cycle is driven by the cyclin D-dependent kinases Cdk4 and Cdk6. These kinases are negatively regulated by the INK4 cell cycle inhibitors. We report the generation of mice defective in P15INK4b and P18INK4c. Ablation of these genes, either alone or in...

    Marginal zone lymphomas of all types (nodal, splenic, and extranodal mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue [MALT]) may show plasmacytic differentiation. Distinguishing marginal zone lymphomas from other small B-cell lymphomas with plasmacytic differentiation, especially lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma,...

    We present an unusual case of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) presenting as apparently isolated gastrointestinal lesions in a pediatric renal transplant recipient. The multiple bowel lesions were related to Epstein-Barr virus and demonstrated the appearance of a monomorphic...
