Article: A case of primary intestinal T-cell lymphoma involving entire gastrointestinal tract: esophagus to rectum.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Primary intestinal T-cell lymphoma is a rare disease entity, which is approximately 10% to 25% of intestinal lymphomas, and most of the lymphomas occur in the small intestine. We report here a case of a 56-year-old woman who has been suffering from chronic diarrhea and weight loss for 6 months. Abdominal CT scan and small bowel series showed diffuse wall thickening of the small bowel. Gastroscopic examination showed diffuse erythematous lesions on the esophagus and small gastric ulcerations on the antrum of the stomach, and colonoscopic examination also showed multiple punched-out ulcerations and erosions on the entire colon, including the sigmoid colon to the terminal ileum. Diffuse infiltration of CD 3 positive lymphoma cells was found on biopsy. The patient was diagnosed as primary intestinal T-cell lymphoma with diffuse involvement of the entire gastrointestinal tracts from the esophagus to the rectum. Although the patient received systemic combination chemotherapy and achieved partial response initially, the lymphoma relapsed repeatedly.The Korean Journal of Internal Medicine 01/2001; 15(3):245-9.

ABSTRACT: Clear-cell meningioma is a rare disease entity showing a more aggressive nature, clinically, than those of other subtypes of meningioma. It occurs in younger persons and commonly in the spinal canal. The recurrence rate has been reported to be as high as 60%. We present a case of clear-cell meningioma in a 17-year-old man in whom initial MR imaging showed localized leptomeningeal enhancement that had progressed into the entire subarachnoid space after surgical resection of the primary tumor.American Journal of Neuroradiology 02/2000; 21(1):130-2. · 2.93 Impact Factor
