Primary anaplastic large cell lymphoma of the spleen presenting as a splenic abscess

, : Primary anaplastic large cell lymphoma of the spleen presenting as a splenic abscess. Leukemia & Lymphoma 42(6): 1419-1421

Large cell anaplastic lymphoma (ALCL) is characterized mainly by the presence of large, atypical lymphoid cells with anaplastic nuclear morphology and positivity to Ki-1 antigen. We describe, to our knowledge, the fourth reported case of primary ALCL of the spleen. The patient, a 62 year old woman, presented symptoms resembling a splenic abscess.

The antiproteinuric effect of cyclosporine A(CsA) has been believed to result from its immunosuppressive effect on the transcription factor NFAT in T cells. However, current evidences supporting this hypothesis are missing. A recent study showed t...

After administration of endocannabinoid-like compound N-stearoylethanolamine (NSE) at a dose of 0,1 and 5 mg/kg the anxiety level of rats in the elevated plus maze and learning ability of rats in the radial maze were investigated. It was revealed...
