ABSTRACT
The 2005 Society for Hematopathology/European Association for Haematopathology Workshop Session 1 was devoted to case presentations with discussions of 3 types of mature T-cell leukemias—T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma, and Sézary syndrome. These 3 disorders are clonal proliferations of postthymic αβ T cells that are often characterized by systemic manifestations and a leukemic blood picture. The application of clinical, morphologic, immunophenotypic, and genetic studies to the assessment and characterization of these 3 disorders is presented, along with specific diagnostic recommendations and differential diagnostic considerations.

    We describe the clinical and biological features of ten patients with a survival superior to ten years (long survival), out of 175 patients diagnosed with Adult T-cell Leukemia/Lymphoma (ATL) in Martinique (1983–2013). There were 5 lymphoma and 5 chronic subtypes. Five of them (3 chronic,...

    Phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (Pten) is a tumor suppressor protein whose loss of lipid phosphatase activity is associated with lymphomagenesis. We made use of the Cre-loxP system to delete Pten expression in Lck- or CD4-expressing T-lineage cells. Mice initially showed...

    Objective(s): Human T Lymphocyte Virus Type one (HTLV-I) is a retrovirus that infects about 10-20 million people worldwide. Khorasan province in Iran is an endemic area. The majority of HTLV-I-infected individuals sustain healthy carriers but small proportion of infected population developed two...

    Multiple lymphomatous polyposis (MLP) is an unusual form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma characterized by polyps throughout the gastrointestinal tract. It has been reported that most MLP are observed in cases with mantle cell lymphoma of B-cell type. We herein present a case of a 66-year-old man with...

    Prurigo nodularis is a pruritic dermatosis of unknown origin. Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV- 1) causes adult T-cell leukaemia/lymphoma. HTLV-1 is not considered to be a cause of prurigo nodularis. A 52-year-old black man, from the French West Indies, who had had prurigo nodularis...

    FOXP3 is a forkhead transcription factor family member, implicated in T-cell regulation, activation and differentiation. FOXP3 has been shown to be a master control gene for the development and function of CD4+/CD25+ regulatory T-cells (Treg). In this study, FOXP3 protein expression has been...

    The diagnosis of malignant lymphoma is a recognized difficult area in histopathology. Therefore, detection of clonality in a suspected lymphoproliferation is a valuable diagnostic criterion. We have developed primer sets for the detection of rearrangements in the B- and T-cell receptor genes as...
