1/729. Hodgkin's disease following extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma in remission.

    A patient who developed Hodgkin's disease after an 11-year remission of marginal zone B-cell (MZB) lymphoma (low grade B-cell lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue type) is presented. Except for L26/CD20 expression by reed-sternberg cells, morphologic, immunophenotypic, and genotypic findings were compatible with the diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease. The relationship between Hodgkin's disease and the preceding MZB lymphoma in this patient is discussed.

2/729. Cerebral lymphomatoid granulomatosis. A report of two cases, with disseminated necrotizing leukoencephalopathy in one.

    Neuropathologic findings in 2 cases of cerebral lymphomatoid granulomatosis with sequelae are presented. A 30-year old male with macular rash and pulmonary lymphomatoid granulomatosis responded to prednisone terapy but developed acute intracranial hypertension with coma. A necrotizing hemorrhagic lesion was evident in the left putamen surrounded by diffuse and perivascular atypical lymphoplasmacytic infiltration. An 18-year old girl developed pulmonary lymphomatoid granulomatosis, diplopia, slurred speech and right hemiparesis. brain scan, angiography and EEG suggested a left fronto-parietal mass assumed to represent lymphomatoid granulomatosis. She responded well to cerebral irradiation, intrathecal methotrexate and cytoxan but relapsed with seizures and increasing respiratory insufficiency. At autopsy, stigmata of cerebral lymphomatoid granulomatosis were absent but a parenchymatous degeneration consistent with disseminated necrotizing leukoencephalopathy following antileukemic therapy in children, was found.

3/729. Specific skin lesions occurring in a patient with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

    A 47-year-old man presented with a several month history of non-specific acquired ichthyosis, an unknown period of generalized lymphadenopathy and a short history of erythematous papules and nodules affecting the cutaneous drainage area of his right axillary lymph nodes. histology confirmed these lesions to be specific lesions of Hodgkin's lymphoma; that is, metastatic retrograde lymphatic spread from his axillary lymph nodes of CD30 , CD15 , reed-sternberg cells as well as mononuclear Hodgkin's cells. This is the most common site and mode of spread of Hodgkin's disease to the skin. As is typical of advanced Hodgkin's disease, as evidenced by specific cutaneous involvement, this patient died shortly after definitive diagnosis was made.

4/729. Hodgkin's lymphoma: an isolated case of involvement of the ureter.

    We report the case of a man in which a Hodgkin's lymphoma involved the ureter as the very first clinical situs of the disease. Ureteral involvement in lymphomas is very rare (0.86%-7% and 1%-16%, found in two studies, respectively, of cases of patients with lymphoma examined post mortem) and when it does occur it is secondary to renal involvement or retroperitoneal adenopathies. It is by all means exceptional as an isolated situs of disease. Those cases reported in the literature as presenting lymphomatous involvement of the ureter have always been diagnosed as Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.

5/729. Simultaneous occurrence of Hodgkin's disease, nodal Langerhans' cell histiocytosis and multiple myeloma IgA(kappa).

    A 35-year-old man suffered simultaneously from nodular sclerosis Hodgkin's disease (HD), Langerhans' cell histiocytosis and multiple myeloma (MM). There was no prior history of irradiation or chemotherapy, and clinically the lymphoma was confined to cervical lymph nodes. Immunohistochemically, neoplastic lymphoma cells reacted with CD15 and CD30 markers. The patient's bone marrow exhibited a diffuse infiltration by rather atypical plasma cells showing kappa immunoglobulin light-chain restriction. At 14 months after the diagnosis, after autologous bone marrow transplantation, the clinical evolution is favourable with complete remission of the diseases. This is the first time that the coexistence of these three haematological disorders has been discussed, and only the fourth documented case of simultaneous HD and MM. Speculations about the significance of this finding are discussed.

6/729. Lymphoid lesions of the conjunctiva: relation of histopathology to clinical outcome.

    A retrospective clinicopathologic study of 40 patients with lymphoid lesions of the conjunctiva demonstrated the validity of current histologic criteria in predicting clinical outcome. overall histologic architecture as well as cytologic detail must be used to differentiate benign reactive lymphoid hyperplasia from lymphoma. Lesions verified clinically as being malignant had obvious malignant cytologic features. Clinical signs of surface follicularity, multifocality, and minimal elevation suggest benignancy. All the benign lesions, on histopathologic examination, were either follicular in architecture or composed of mature lymphocytes, and were generally restricted to the substantia propria. Bilaterality and clinical recurrence do not necessarily imply a malignant disease.

7/729. Cerebral spinal fluid involvement by Hodgkin's disease diagnosed by CSF cytology and immunocytochemistry.

    A 39-yr-old man with stage IV Hodgkin's disease (HD) involving bone marrow was being evaluated for autologous bone marrow transplantation when he developed diplopia, prompting a lumbar puncture tap for cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) examination. Cytologic examination of the CSF revealed numerous Reed-Sternberg (RS) cells in a polymorphous inflammatory background of small lymphocytes, monocytes, rare plasma cells, and eosinophils. However, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies of the brain and spinal cord failed to reveal evidence of leptomeningeal disease or intracranial masses. Repeat CSF examination again demonstrated cytologic evidence of HD. Immunocytochemical stains established that the RS cells and mononuclear Hodgkin's cells were positive for CD30 and CD20 but negative for CD15; this phenotype was identical to that of RS cells in the initial diagnostic bone marrow biopsy, confirming CSF involvement by HD. The patient was treated with intrathecal methotrexate, 15 mg, 6 days after his bone marrow transplant. After treatment, all subsequent CSF cytology specimens were negative for tumor. In this case of disseminated HD, cytologic examination allowed for early detection of CNS involvement by lymphoma prior to development of radiographically detectable lesions.

8/729. Identification of common germinal-center B-cell precursors in two patients with both Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

    BACKGROUND: Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma occasionally occur in the same patient. The identification of a common precursor of the two types of lymphoma would show definitively that reed-sternberg cells originate from B cells. methods: We studied lymphomas from two patients, one with a composite lymphoma (classic Hodgkin's disease and a follicular lymphoma in the same lymph node) and the other with a T-cell-rich B-cell lymphoma that was followed by classic Hodgkin's disease. Single reed-sternberg cells and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cells from frozen sections were micromanipulated. The rearranged immunoglobulin variable-region genes (V genes) of the heavy and light chains were amplified by the polymerase chain reaction from genomic dna and sequenced. RESULTS: In both patients, the reed-sternberg cells were related clonally to the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma B cells. The V genes carried somatic mutations (a hallmark of germinal-center B cells and their descendants). In both patients, some somatic mutations were shared by the Reed-Sternberg and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cells, whereas other somatic mutations were found exclusively in one or the other cell type. CONCLUSIONS: In two patients with classic Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma, we identified a common B-cell precursor, probably a germinal-center B-cell, for both lymphomas. This finding suggests that the two types of lymphoma underwent both shared and distinct transforming events and provides proof of the B-cell derivation of reed-sternberg cells in classic Hodgkin's disease.

9/729. Surgical treatment of tracheomediastinal fistula from recurrent Hodgkin's lymphoma.

    The role of surgery in the management of Hodgkin's disease is usually diagnostic because chemotherapy and radiation are often curative. We report here the surgical treatment of a tracheomediastinal fistula from recurrent Hodgkin's lymphoma.

10/729. Defective apoptosis due to a point mutation in the death domain of CD95 associated with autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome, T-cell lymphoma, and Hodgkin's disease.

    apoptosis via CD95 and its ligand is an important mechanism that prevents uncontrolled proliferation of activated lymphocytes and regulates lymphocyte homeostasis. The apoptosis receptor CD95 is a transmembrane protein with an intracellular domain well conserved between CD95 and tumor necrosis factor receptor I, another apoptosis-inducing protein. Because of its functional importance, this domain was designated the death domain. We describe the molecular analysis of the CD95 death domain in a family with autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (Canale-Smith syndrome), T-cell lymphoma, and Hodgkin's disease. A functional defect in apoptosis was detected in cells from the index patient, a 5-year-old girl suffering from Canale-Smith syndrome and a T-cell lymphoma, as well as in her father, who had a history of splenomegaly and mild hemolysis, and her paternal uncle who had been cured of Hodgkin's disease (HD). Expansion of double-negative T cells (CD4-CD8-) was only seen in the index patient. All family members with a functional defect in apoptosis were heterozygous for a point mutation in the death domain of CD95 (A1009G, E256G). We conclude that, within the same family, a defect in apoptosis due to a mutation in the CD95 death domain can be associated with diverse clinical phenotypes, including mild, reversible symptoms and different malignancies.
