LINFOMA ANAPLASICO DE CELULAS GRANDES PDF

Despite the small number of reports to date, the number of cases is rapidly increasing. Of the few hundred cases that have been reported so far, very few came from Brazil and none have been reported to the local authorities. We encountered a case of BIA-ALCL and believe that its report to the local plastic surgery community could raise awareness to this emerging pathology. The prognosis is very good in most of the diagnosed cases. However, little is known about how and why silicone implants could trigger a lymphoid response that results in ALCL.

Los autores describen un paciente pediatrico quien presento con clinica de 3 meses de evolucion de tos seca, dolor de pecho, dificultad respiratoria progresiva, fiebre y neumonia recurrente con atelectasias. La broncoscopia de fibra optica revelo una lesion blanquecina en el bronquio izquierdo.

La biopsia de la lesion demostro un Linfoma Anaplasico de Celulas Grandes y la evaluacion para enfermedad diseminada fue reportada negativa. Despues de completar quimioterapia la lesion desaparecio y la paciente ha permanecido en remision completa por cerca de 4 anos. Aunque el compromiso extranodal del Linfoma Anaplasico de Celulas Grandes es frecuente en algun momento durante su curso, el envolvimiento endobronquial es extremadamente raro aun en presencia de enfermedad avanzada.

A nuestro entender, este es el primer caso aislado de Linfoma Anaplasico de Celulas Grandes endobronquial descrito en un paciente pediatrico. The authors describe a pediatric patient who presented with a 3-month history of dry cough, chest pain, progressive breathlessness, fever and recurrent pneumonia with atelectasis.

A fiberoptic bronchoscopy revealed a whitish lesion at the left bronchus. A biopsy of the lesion demonstrated an anaplastic large cell lymphoma ALCL. Evaluation for disseminated disease was negative.

After the patient completed chemotherapy the lesion abated and she has been in complete remission for almost 4 years. Although extranodal involvement of ALCL is frequent at some stage of the disease, endobronchial involvement is extremely rare even in the presence of advanced disease.

To our knowledge, this is the first primary isolated endobronchial ALCL described in a pediatric patient. A 9-year-old girl with a negative history of significant medical illnesses, presented at the University of Puerto Rico Pediatric Hospital with the complaint of persistent dry cough of 3 months of duration, chest pain, breathlessness and intermittent low grade fever. The patient had visited her primary physician in four previous occasions with these symptoms.

She was diagnosed with acute bronchospasm each time, and was treated initially with [beta]adrenergic agonists and leukotriene receptors antagonist without improvement. The chest radiograph revealed a left upper lobe lingular segment opacification and she was treated with antibiotics for 10 days for suspected pneumonia with associated atelectasis without response. Computed Tomography CT of the chest was done and revealed a 9.

A fiberoptic bronchoscopy was done confirming airway obstruction, and revealing a whitish round mass adhered to the anterolateral wall at the lower third of left main bronchus Figure 2. Section of the endobronchial biopsy Figure 3 examined in our institution and reviewed by AFIP Armed Forces Institute of Pathology , demonstrated a dense proliferation of discohesive anaplastic cells with enlarged round Primary endobronchial anaplastic large cell lymphoma in a pediatric patient.

Primary endobronchial anaplastic large cell lymphoma in a pediatric patient

Extracutaneous dissemination may occur, especially to regional lymph nodes. Prognosis is good and does not depend on lymphatic invasion. The present study reports the case of a year-old-woman presenting Primary cutaneous anaplastic large-cell lymphoma with multifocal lesions. The pacient evolved with pulmonary involvement 7 years later. She showed a good response to the treatment with low-dose methotrexate prescribed weekly.
