11/14. Appearance of Ga-67 citrate scanning in a patient with Mikulicz's syndrome associated with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. A case report.

    The case of a patient with Mikulicz's syndrome and associated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is described. Description of the Ga-67 scan in Mikulicz's syndrome is presented. ( info)

12/14. Kimura's disease: a clinico-pathological study of 21 cases and its distinction from angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia.

    Kimura's disease is a chronic inflammatory condition producing subcutaneous tumour-like nodules chiefly in the head and neck region. It is characterized histologically by lymphoid follicles, intense aggregations of eosinophils, vascular proliferation and fibrosis. Superficial lymph nodes and parotid glands are sometimes involved. The lesions may persist unchanged for years and new ones are apt to occur. Recurrences are also common. There are no systemic manifestations apart from peripheral blood eosinophilia. The lesion has been recognised as a distinct clinicopathological entity in the far east for over 40 years. We describe 21 cases of Kimura's disease and discuss its relationship to angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia. Although the pathogenesis and etiology of both these lesions are unknown we believe that there are sufficient significant clinical and pathological differences to justify their separation. ( info)

13/14. Mikulicz syndrome and disease: 2 case reports highlighting the difference.

    We present 2 case reports highlighting the essential differences between Mikulicz syndrome and Mukulicz disease. A review of the literature appears to show some confusion over the terminology and we therefore also present an historical account of the evolution of the two terms and review their relative merits and relationship with other disorders. In conclusion, we would not advocate the use of the term Mikulicz syndrome and suggest that Mikulicz disease be replaced by the title 'Benign Lymphoepithelial Lesion'. ( info)

14/14. Conversion of a benign lymphoepithelial salivary gland lesion to lymphocytic lymphoma during dilantin therapy: correlation with dilantin-induced lymphocyte transformation in vitro.

    A patient with a classical salivary gland benign lymphoepithelial lesion (BLL) that converted to a lymphoblastic lymphoma (LSA) localized to the salivary glands is described. The malignant transformation of the BLL was preceded by Dilantin anticonvulsant therapy, and in vitro tests subsequent to the development of LSA demonstrated positive Dilantin-induced lymphocyte transformation. The lymphoma was treated successfully by local irradiation, chemotherapy, and discontinuation of Dilantin. The case illustrates the "prelymphomatous" nature of BLL in certain patients, as well as the possible potential danger of Dilantin and other lymphoid-stimulating drugs in discussed. Further study of drugs capable lymphocyte transformation in patients with prelymphomatous disorders is warranted. ( info)
