Primary hepatic lymphoma (PHL) is a rare malignancy. We aimed to assess the clinical profile, outcome and prognostic factors in PHL through the Rare Cancer Network (RCN). A retrospective analysis of 41 patients was performed. Median age was 62 years (range, 23-86 years) with a male-to-female ratio of 1.9:1.0. Abdominal pain or discomfort was the most common presenting symptom. Regarding B-symptoms, 19.5% of patients had fever, 17.1% weight loss, and 9.8% night sweats. The most common radiological presentation was multiple lesions. Liver function tests were elevated in 56.1% of patients. The most common histopathological diagnosis was diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (65.9%). Most of the patients received Chop-like (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) regimens; 4 patients received radiotherapy (dose range, 30.6-40.0 Gy). Median survival was 163 months, and 5- and 10-year overall survival rates were 77 and 59%, respectively. The 5- and 10-year disease-free and lymphoma-specific survival rates were 69, 56, 87 and 70%, respectively. Multivariate analysis revealed that fever, weight loss, and normal hemoglobin level were the independent factors influencing the outcome. In this retrospective multicenter RCN study, patients with PHL had a relatively better prognosis than that reported elsewhere. Multicenter prospective studies are still warranted to establish treatment guidelines, outcome, and prognostic factors.

Two groups of adult patients submitted to ambulatory tonsillectomy were studied. In group 1, 52 patients received a combination of tramadol and NSAIDs postoperatively; in group 2, 60 patients were treated with prednisone and NSAIDs. Two surgical techniques were used: cold dissection or dissection with electrocautery. Pain was recorded on days 4, 7 and 15, using a numerical scale from 0 to 10.

A statistically significant difference in the level of antibodies against PtpA was measured in untreated CD patients versus healthy controls, but variation in the antibody levels was observed when patients were subjected to different treatment regimens. UC patients showed no differences in the levels of antibodies against PtpA when compared to healthy controls.

MD prednisone regimen may be an effective and safe alternative to HD prednisone regimen in GCA. Induction with methylprednisolone pulses predicts a better response, allowing for a less intensive prednisone regimen.

In order to determine the prevalence of occult HBV reactivation in a large cohort of patients during chemotherapy for NHL, we analysed 498 NHL patients in a centre of Southern Italy. We evaluated HBV markers, NHL type, treatment type and occurrence of HBV reactivation.

In a large population of mixed medical-surgical ICU patients, systemic corticosteroid use was not associated with an increased probability of transitioning to delirium.

The most common risk factor identified was inhaled steroids. Most often, laryngeal candidiasis is effectively treated with oral antifungal medications.

Three hundred and ninety-six symptomatic, newly diagnosed MM patients were treated with VCMP plus thalidomide in our hospital for the past 11 years, and clinical data of these patients were retrospectively analyzed.

Abiraterone may suppress androgens that stimulate breast cancer growth. We conducted a biomarker analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTCs), formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues (FFPETs), and serum samples from postmenopausal estrogen receptor (ER)(+) breast cancer patients to identify subgroups with differential abiraterone sensitivity.

CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisone)-like chemotherapy, in combination with rituximab (R-CHOP-like), improves outcome in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). We aimed to investigate the impact of rituximab on central nervous system (CNS) disease in adult patients. We studied 315 patients (aged 18-60 years old) from six hospitals between July 2003 and May 2008. All patients received CHOP-like (n=165) or R-CHOP-like (n=150) regimen every 3 weeks. With a median follow-up of 3.69 years, 10 patients (3.17%) developed CNS disease. The cumulative risk of CNS occurrence was not significantly different between the two treatment groups (P=0.871). We conclude that the addition of rituximab did not reduce the risk of CNS disease in adult patients with DLBCL.
Collagenous gastritis is a rare entity, characterized by the deposition of a subepithelial collagen band with an inflammatory infiltrate in the mucosa. This report describes the first case of collagenous gastritis occurring in a young Chinese woman and reviews the literatures.
We studied long-term cancer survival, neurologic recovery, and Qol of a consecutive series of eight patients with OMS that were treated in our center. Two cross-sectional follow-up evaluations were conducted at a 3-year interval (T1 and T2).
