Hematologic diseases and diseases of the lymphatic system collectively. Hemic diseases include disorders involving the formed elements (e.g., ERYTHROCYTE AGGREGATION, INTRAVASCULAR) and chemical components (e.g., BLOOD PROTEIN DISORDERS); lymphatic diseases include disorders relating to lymph, lymph nodes, and lymphocytes.
Diseases of LYMPH; LYMPH NODES; or LYMPHATIC VESSELS.
Tubular vessels that are involved in the transport of LYMPH and LYMPHOCYTES.
A system of organs and tissues that process and transport immune cells and LYMPH.
Unbroken cellular lining (intima) of the lymph vessels (e.g., the high endothelial lymphatic venules). It is more permeable than vascular endothelium, lacking selective absorption and functioning mainly to remove plasma proteins that have filtered through the capillaries into the tissue spaces.
The formation of LYMPHATIC VESSELS.

Ki-1 (CD30)-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma, sarcomatoid variant accompanied by spontaneously regressing lymphadenopathy. (1/851)

Although it has been reported that primary Ki-1 (CD30)-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) of the skin may undergo spontaneous regression, it is rare for ALCL without cutaneous involvement to have spontaneously regressing lymphadenopathy. We report a case of sarcomatoid variant of ALCL accompanied by spontaneously regressing lymphadenopathy. The patient had gastric and pulmonary involvement of ALCL in addition to systemic lymphadenopathy, but with no cutaneous involvement. The lymphadenopathy spontaneously improved gradually during a period of one month without any treatment. At the same time, multiple small nodules in both lung fields decreased on chest computed tomography and multiple elevated gastric tumors with dimples were endoscopically recognized to have improved. He has since been treated with combination chemotherapy because of recurrence of the lymphadenopathy.  (+info)

Angiogenesis extent and macrophage density increase simultaneously with pathological progression in B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. (2/851)

Node biopsies of 30 benign lymphadenopathies and 71 B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (B-NHLs) were investigated for microvessel and macrophage counts using immunohistochemistry and morphometric analysis. Both counts were significantly higher in B-NHL. Moreover, when these were grouped into low-grade and high-grade lymphomas, according to the Kiel classification and Working Formulation (WF), statistically significant higher counts were found in the high-grade tumours. Immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy revealed a close spatial association between microvessels and macrophages. Overall, the results suggest that, in analogy to what has already been shown in solid tumours, angiogenesis occurring in B-NHLs increases with tumour progression, and that macrophages promote the induction of angiogenesis via the release of their angiogenic factors.  (+info)

Adrenergic innervation in reactive human lymph nodes. (3/851)

Several experimental models have demonstrated that the central nervous system is functionally linked to the immune system by means of the autonomic nervous system. Samples of 36 lymph nodes of patients whose ages ranged from 16 to 69 y were studied. In order to demonstrate the existence and distribution of sympathetic nerve fibres, a polyclonal antibody antityrosine hydroxylase (TH), with the streptavidin-biotin system of detection, was used. TH-positive nerve fibres appeared in all reactive patterns of the lymph nodes studied. Thin nerve fascicles ramified at the hilar region and also in the connective tissue septae. Adventitial adrenergic nerve fibres were found following afferent, and to a lesser extent, efferent blood vessels. Another source of incoming nerve fibres was found at capsular level, accompanying blood vessels. On the arterial side, the innervation ceased before reaching the follicular arterioles. Our demonstration of innervation in postcapillary venules could support a regulatory role of adrenergic neurotransmitters in lymphocyte traffic. Occasional nerve fibres were also seen in T areas among parenchymatous cells. These findings confirm the existence of sympathetic innervation in human lymph nodes, and provide indirect evidence that the psychoneuroimmune axis could also exist in humans.  (+info)

The prevalence and CT appearance of the levator claviculae muscle: a normal variant not to be mistaken for an abnormality. (4/851)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The levator claviculae muscle is an infrequently recognized variant in humans, occurring in 2% to 3% of the population, and has rarely been reported in the radiologic or anatomic literature. The importance of this muscle to radiologists is in distinguishing it from an abnormality; most commonly, cervical adenopathy. After discovering this muscle on the CT scans of two patients during routine clinical examinations, we conducted a study to determine the prevalence and appearance of the muscle on CT studies. METHODS: We evaluated 300 CT scans that adequately depicted the expected location of the muscle. The most superior level in which the muscle could be identified and the apparent location of insertion on the clavicle were recorded for all subjects in whom the muscle was detected. RESULTS: Seven levator claviculae muscles were identified in six subjects (2%). It was bilateral in one, on the left in four, and on the right in one. It was identified up to the level of the transverse process of C3 in all cases. The insertion was the middle third of the clavicle for two muscles and the lateral third of the clavicle for the remaining five muscles. CONCLUSION: Because the levator claviculae muscle will most likely be encountered during a radiologist's career, it is important to recognize this muscle as a variant and not as an abnormality.  (+info)

Primary Sjogren's syndrome in the North East of England: a long-term follow-up study. (5/851)

OBJECTIVE: Although primary Sjogren's syndrome is often a benign condition, characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of salivary and lacrimal glands, some patients develop systemic features. We have previously found that anti-Ro antibodies identified patients with more systemic disease, with increased incidence of parotid swelling, lymphadenopathy and lymphoma. METHODS: We have followed up a cohort of 100 patients over 10 yr, to establish whether the phenotypic expression of disease changed, and whether the different autoantibody patterns expressed at presentation could be used to predict outcome. RESULTS: While seronegative patients (ANA, RF, Ro and La negative) remained polysymptomatic, they did not develop systemic complications or serological changes. Thirty-nine per cent of ANA- or RF-positive patients who were negative for Ro and La were given revised diagnoses over the follow-up period, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, mixed connective tissue disease and scleroderma. Parotid swelling and lymphadenopathy were more common in Ro/La-positive patients, where the relative risk of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was 49.7. CONCLUSION: Both HLA B8 and DR3 were present in 79% of Ro/La-positive patients, but were found together in only 4% of seronegative patients, supporting the view that these clinical subgroups of primary Sjogren's syndrome are both serologically and immunogenetically distinct. Patients who are initially autoantibody (including Ro and La) negative do not evolve into 'systemic' Sjogren's syndrome or other connective tissue diseases.  (+info)

A central role for alpha beta T cells in the pathogenesis of murine lupus. (6/851)

We have previously shown that female transgenic mice expressing IFN-gamma in the epidermis, under the control of the involucrin promoter, develop inflammatory skin disease and a form of murine lupus. To investigate the pathogenesis of this syndrome, we generated female IFN-gamma transgenic mice congenitally deficient in either alpha beta or gamma delta T cells. TCR delta-/- transgenics continued to produce antinuclear autoantibodies and to develop severe kidney lesions. In contrast, TCR beta-/- IFN-gamma transgenic mice failed to produce antinucleosome, anti-dsDNA, or antihistone autoantibodies, and kidney disease was abolished. Both alpha beta- and gamma delta-deficient transgenics continued to develop IFN-gamma-associated skin disease, lymphadenopathy, and splenomegaly. The data show that the autoantibody-mediated pathology of murine lupus in IFN-gamma transgenic mice is completely alpha beta T cell dependent and that gamma delta T cells cannot drive autoantibody production. These results imply that production of antinuclear autoantibodies in IFN-gamma transgenic animals is Ag driven, and we identified clusters of apoptotic cells in the epidermis of the mice as a possible source of self Ags. Our findings emphasize the relevance of this murine lupus model to the human disease.  (+info)

Cladribine activity in adult langerhans-cell histiocytosis. (7/851)

Langerhans-cell histiocytosis (LCH) results from the accumulation of tissue histiocytes derived from the same progenitor cells as monocytes. Because cladribine is potently toxic to monocytes, we conducted a phase II trial of cladribine. Cladribine was administered to 13 LCH patients at 0.14 mg/kg per day by 2-hour intravenous infusion for 5 consecutive days, every 4 weeks for a maximum of six courses. Median age was 42 years (range, 19 to 72) and median pretreatment disease duration was 99 months (range, 6 to 252). One patient was untreated, one had received prior prednisone only, one prior radiation only, six prior radiation and chemotherapy, and four prior surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Seven patients had cutaneous involvement, six multifocal osseous, six pulmonary, two each with soft tissue and nodal involvement, and four had diabetes insipidus. Of 13 patients, 12 were evaluable for response and all for toxicity. After a median of three courses (range, 1 to 6), seven (58%) patients achieved complete responses (two pathologic and five clinical) and two (17%) patients achieved partial responses; overall response rate, 75%. Median response follow-up duration was 33 months (range, 1 to 65). Seven patients experienced grade 3 to 4 neutropenia. Only one patient had a documented infection, dermatomal herpes zoster. At a median follow-up of 42 months (range, 5 to 76), 12 patients remain alive and one patient has died. Thus, cladribine has major activity in adult LCH and warrants further investigation in both pediatric and adult LCH as a single agent and in combination with other drugs.  (+info)

Lymphatic and haematopoietic cancer mortality in a population attending school adjacent to styrene-butadiene facilities, 1963-1993. (8/851)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the risk of mortality from lymphatic and haematopoietic cancers and other causes among students. DESIGN: The study used school records, yearbooks, and Texas Department of Health records for the school years 1963-64 to 1992-93 to construct a cohort of 15,403 students. Three mortality databases were searched to identify deaths, and mortality rates in the cohort were compared with mortality rates from the United States and Texas. Computed standardised mortality ratios and 95% confidence intervals were used. SETTING: Eastern Texas high school adjacent to facilities that have been producing synthetic styrene-butadiene since 1943. MAIN RESULTS: 338 deaths were identified. The all causes standardised mortality ratio was 0.84 (95% confidence intervals 0.74, 0.95) for men and 0.89 (0.73, 1.09) for women. The standardised mortality ratio for all lymphatic and haematopoietic cancers was 1.64 (95% confidence intervals 0.85, 2.87) for men and 0.47 (0.06, 1.70) for women. The slight male excess in lymphatic and haematopoietic cancers was stronger among men who attended school for two years or less. CONCLUSIONS: The overall mortality from lymphatic and haematopoietic cancer among the students was little different from that of the United States as a whole. A moderate excess for men, predominantly among the shorter-term students, was offset by a deficit among women. These variations are compatible with random fluctuations; the overall pattern is not indicative of an effect of environmental exposure sustained while attending the high school.  (+info)

Background: Lymphadenopathy is a common clinical problem in our country among all age groups and in both sexes. In this study an attempt has been made to evaluate the clinical presentation and diagnosis of peripheral lymphadenopathy, which is commonly encountered in medical wards and diagnostic value of FNAC has been evaluated.. Methodology: This hospital-based descriptive study was done in thirty adult cases, of clinically apparent peripheral lymphadenopathy of at least more than two weeks of duration. Study was conducted over a period of 6 months from July, 2005 to December, 2005 in inpatients and outpatients of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital. After thorough examination, fine needle aspiration from several accessible enlarged lymph node groups were taken and sent for cytopathological examination and later biopsy of the significantly enlarged lymph node from the same anatomical region was performed and was sent for histopathological examination.. Results: Cytopathological study was ...
ICD-10 A18.2 is tuberculous peripheral lymphadenopathy (A182). This code is grouped under diagnosis codes for certain infectious and parasitic diseases.
Conclusions A significant proportion of patients with IMHL were found to have a diagnosis of reactive lymphadenopathy. With a pathological cause only being found in a minority of cases the appropriateness of EBUS-TBNA to investigate these patients could be questioned.. Our results found a significantly higher prevalence of reactive lymphadenopathy than previously published data; Evinson et al. reported this diagnosis 48% of patients and the REMEDY trial reported reactive lymphadenopathy in 5% of patients.. The detection of IMHL and its burden on the health service is likely to increase with increasing use of CT. Due to this a large multi-centred prospective study of patients with IMHL would be advisable to further investigate what the most appropriate strategy to manage these patients should be. ...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a newly recognized disorder, characterized by massive IgG4+ lymphocyte and plasma cell infiltration, storiform fibrosis, causing enlargement, nodules or thickening of the various organs, simultaneously or metachronously. Involvement of the gastrointestinal tract is very rare and can be presented as a diffuse wall thickening or polyp or mass-like lesion. Up to now, there have been reported only a few cases of isolated gastric IgG4-RD. We present an unusual case of IgG4-RD of the stomach with involvement of the regional lymph nodes, clinically manifested as a gastric cancer with related pyloric stenosis. The patient underwent distal gastrectomy, omentectomy and lymph node dissection. The postoperative serum IgG4 level was increased. The diagnosis was confirmed by immunohistochemical study. In the most of the reported cases there was not sufficient data about the regional lymph nodal status, although the majority of the patients had been operated with presumptive diagnosis

The body has approximately 600 lymph nodes, but only those in the submandibular, axillary or inguinal regions may normally be palpable in healthy people. Lymphadenopathy refers to nodes that are abnormal in either size, consistency or number. There are various classifications of lymphadenopathy, but a simple and clinically useful system is to classify lymphadenopathy as generalized if lymph nodes are enlarged in two or more noncontiguous areas or localized if only one area is involved. Distinguishing between localized and generalized lymphadenopathy is important in formulating a differential diagnosis. In primary care patients with unexplained lymphadenopathy, approximately three-fourths of patients will present with localized lymphadenopathy and one fourth with generalized ...
On examination Fareed appeared well. His height (170 cm, just above 50th centile) and weight (63 kg, just below the 75th centile) were recorded. There was no pallor, jaundice or petechiae. His pharynx was a little inflamed and he had mildly enlarged tonsils without exudate. A 2.5-cm lymph node was palpable in the left posterior triangle of the neck. This was firm, mobile and mildly tender, but there was no inflammation or induration of the overlying skin. There were no other palpable nodes in the neck, supraclavicular fossa, axillae or groin and no hepatosplenomegaly.. After considering the clinical presentation and examination findings, a diagnosis of reactive lymphadenopathy was made. In the absence of any signs of significant bacterial infection, supportive care was recommended. A throat swab was sent to rule out Group A streptococcal infection. In view of the 2.5 cm lymph node, review was planned in 3 weeks.. ...

Doctors help you with trusted information about Pregnancy in Hiv: Dr. Cannon on hiv in pregnancy lymphadenopathy: Having several small lymph nodes in the neck is common in many people and not necessarily abnormal. The lab tests you had are very accurate, so HIV is not a possible cause (and HIV doesnt cause lymph node enlargement in only one area like the neck) Probably not hepatitis, mono, or EBV either. If you otherwise feel well, probably nothing is wrong. Discuss with your doctor.
Lymphadenopathy means swelling of the lymph nodes or glands. Lymphadenopathy can occur in just one area of the body, such as the neck. Or it may affect lymph nodes throughout the body. The cervical lymph nodes, found in the neck, are the most common site of lymphadenopathy.

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare, benign, and predominantly nodal disease that most commonly presents as bilateral, painless cervical lymphadenopathy; although inguinal, axillary, mediastinal, and hilar lymphadenopathy has also been reported. Apart from nodal involvement, RDD has extranodal manifestations involving bone, soft tissue, and liver as well as constitutional symptoms of fever, night sweats, and weight loss, which make it reasonable to rule out the infectious, autoimmune, and malignant conditions as the differential diagnosis. We herein report a case of RDD affecting only the mediastinal and hilar region in an 83-year-old woman.

It may resemble malignant diseases and thus confuse the judgment of the clinician. We report a 60-year-old diabetic woman suffered from chronic cough for 2 years and whose computed tomography scan revealed multiple pleural nodules with mediastinal lymphadenopathy and multiple liver masses. We approached this case as malignant disease initially but found it to be a systemic tuberculosis infection after a series of examinations. Tuberculosis may have radiological presentation like malignant disease. Physicians should consider tuberculosis as a possibility for those patients with underlying diseases, which can potentiate tuberculosis infection.. AB - ...
Introduction: Kimuras disease (KD) is an allergic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology endemic in Orientals. Kimuras disease was first mentioned by Kimm and Szeto in China in 1937. Kimuras disease is commonly encountered in Asia and is mostly reported in Japan, China, Singapore and Honkong. However, only a few cases have been reported in the Indian subcontinent. Case Report: A case of Kimuras disease in a young male managed by surgery is reported in addition to a literature review. Conclusion: Diagnosis is made on the basis of histopathological analysis, clinical presentation, and laboratory investigations. Long term follow-up is required as Kimuras disease is prone for recurrence.

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is an uncommon pathologic condition of unknown ethiology with an idiopathic proliferation of the hystiocytes. It is generally presented with massive bilateral hypertrophy of the cervical lymph nodes. But other lymph nodes may also be involved. Approximately, 30% of these patients have extra nodal mass or lesion with different signs or symptoms depending on localization. We present two male siblings with Rosai-Dorfman disease who have classical cervical lymphadenopathy associated with progressive neurosensorial hearing loss and dural-based intracranial lesions.
Lymphadenopathy is a common radiological finding in many thoracic diseases and may be caused by a variety of infectious, inflammatory, and neoplastic conditions. This review aims to describe the patterns of mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathy found in benign diseases in immunocompetent patients. Computed tomography is the method of choice for the evaluation of lymphadenopathy, as it is able to demonstrate increased size of individual nodes, abnormalities of the interface between the mediastinum and lung, invasion of surrounding fat, coalescence of adjacent nodes, obliteration of the mediastinal fat, and hypo- and hyperdensity in lymph nodes. Intravenous contrast enhancement may be needed to help distinguish nodes from vessels. The most frequent infections resulting in this finding are tuberculosis and fungal disease (particularly histoplasmosis and coccidioidomycosis). Sarcoidosis is a relatively frequent cause of lymphadenopathy in young adults, and can be distinguished from other diseases - ...
Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease is a rare, benign cause of lymphadenopathy that is often associated with fever, night sweats, and weight loss. The clinical and laboratory manifestation of Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease are similar to those of lymphoma, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and it is often mistaken for these disorders. Definitive diagnosis is accomplished by lymph node biopsy. Awareness of Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease among clinicians and pathologists is essential to avoid misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment of patients with this self-limited disorder.
Conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (C-TBNA) has been proven to be a safe, minimally invasive, and cost-effective technique in establishing the diagnosis of mediastinal pathologies. We studied the success of C-TBNA in our community practice, in patients with mediastinal lymphadenopathies. The technique of C-TBNA was learned solely from the literature, videos, and by practicing on inanimate models during hands-on courses. Conventional TBNA, with 21- and/or 19-gauge Smooth Shot Needles, was performed on consecutive patients with undiagnosed mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Fifty-four patients (38 men), mean age 56.9±11.8 years, underwent C-TBNA. Thirty-three patients had nodes ,20mm. The final diagnoses were malignancy,29; sarcoidosis, 9; reactive lymph nodes, 15; and tuberculosis, 1. The final diagnosis was established by C-TBNA in 27. The exclusive diagnostic yield of TBNA was 42.5% (n: 23). Nodal size had an impact on outcome (P=0.002), whereas location did not (P=0.82). C-TBNA was ...

Clinical lymphadenopathies are subjected to fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC) for diagnosing not only benign lesions but also malignant ones, as the first diagnostic procedure. While the diagnostic reliability in metastatic carcinoma is high, it is difficult to differentiate malignant lymphoma from reactive conditions. We evaluated the diagnostic reliability of FNAC in lymphadenopathy, and discuss the diagnostic limitation and its place in clinical practice in this study, Over 8 years from January 1988, FNAC of 1,216 lymphadenopathies were analyzed and among them 170 cases were compared with histopathology. The results are as follows. 1. Of ail the cases, 890 cases(73.2%) were diagnosed cytologically as benign, 312 cases(25.7%) as malignant, and 14 cases(1.1%) as unsatisfactory material. Reactive hyperplasia was diagnosed in 585 cases(65.7%) of the benign lesions, and among the malignant diseases, metastatic carcinoma was diagnosed in 248 cases(79.5%), and malignant lymphoma in 62 ...
Lymph node. Light micrograph of a section through a healthy human lymph node. The follicles (oval, purple) are the regions in which B-lymphocyte white blood cells proliferate. Surrounding the lymph node is a collagenous capsule (pink, at left). This supportive tissue extends into the node as a trabecula (pink). Lymph nodes are kidney-shaped organs into which the fluid from body tissues drains and is filtered. The nodes are packed with white blood cells that destroy disease-causing microorganisms within the fluid. The granular appearance of the tissue is caused by the presence of thousands of lymphocyte white blood cells. Magnification: x400 at 35mm size. - Stock Image P290/0025

As for the not so fab updates, Ive had some rather negative doctor appointments lately of the freak the crap out of me nature. Cliffs notes version...CAT scans in April and June reflect that I have some enlarged lymph nodes in my (I like to say underarms but the doctors officially and eloquently refer to them as) armpits. Theyre not getting any bigger (yay!) but theyre not getting any smaller (boo.) so Im sort of in the middle of a big ole crap storm of advice right now. I do have an autoimmune disease (Sjogrens remember?) which could totally be causing the lymph node enlargement and would be no big deal because we already know about that. My rheumatologist has said that I could totally wait a few months and have another CAT scan to just make sure theyre not getting bigger, which would reflect the nothing more than the autoimmune crap theory. On the other hand, I met with a surgeon last week who told me that it was time for me to have a lymph node biopsy...which turned out to be just a ...
