[Ab] Abstract:Abstract 1. Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is considered an autosomal recessive disorder, associated with a single gene named Mediterranean fever (MEFV). The aim of this study was to perform genotyping and haplotyping analysis of the multidrug resistance (ATP-binding cassette, subfamily B, member 1 - ABCB1) gene in FMF patients. 2. Three ABCB1 gene polymorphisms (C1236T, G2677T/A and C3435T) were analyzed in 309 FMF patients and 250 healthy control subjects. All subjects were genotyped by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, and statistical analysis was performed using the Arlequin 3.1.1 and SPSS 16.0 software packages. 3. The CT genotype frequency of the C3435T polymorphism (p = 0.003), the CT-GT-CT (C1236T-G2677T/A-C3435T) triple genotype (p = 0.001) and the C-G (C1236T-G2677T/A) haplotype (p = 0.030) were more common in the FMF patients. The CT-GG-CC triple genotype and T-G-C, C-T-T and T-G-T haplotypes (C1236T-G2677T/A-C3435T) were higher in the control subjects (p = 0.011, 0.001, 0.009 and 0.000, respectively). The CT-GG binary genotype and C-T and T-G haplotypes for C1236T-G2677T/A polymorphisms may have a high degree of protective effect against FMF (p = 0.0005, 0.002 and 0.000, respectively). 4. Our study showed that genotypes and haplotypes of ABCB1 gene polymorphisms may affect patients' FMF susceptibility.

[Ab] Abstract:A patient in her 60s was referred to our hospital with pancreatic enlargement. Laboratory data and endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) revealed a nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (WHO classification 2010 G2). Resection was contraindicated because of portal vein invasion and extensive collateral vascularization. Everolimus (10 mg/day) was started after seven months of treatment with S-1 (an oral formulation of tegafur with the modulators gimeracil and oteracil) following its insurance approval in Japan. Four months later, the patient developed cough and fever, and there was radiological and clinical evidence of Grade 2 everolimus-associated interstitial pneumonia (according to the Everolimus Proper-Usage Guide). Everolimus was replaced with steroid therapy (30 mg/day), resulting in immediate symptomatic improvement. After conclusion of steroid therapy, everolimus was restarted. The patient has since remained on a dosage of 10 mg/day of everolimus, with the tumor in a state of partial response.

[Ab] Abstract:Crystal deposition in the cervical spine around the odontoid process may lead to acute neck pain. This rare condition is called crowned dens syndrome and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a possible etiology for fever, headache and cervical pain of unknown origin. The syndrome is often overlooked, thus leading to misdiagnosis, invasive and useless investigations (lumbar puncture, biopsy), inappropriate treatment (steroids, antibiotics, antiviral drugs) and prolonged hospitalization. This can be prevented by imaging, based on a cervical CT scan that allows an accurate diagnosis. The disease has a good prognosis and symptoms usually subside within a few weeks. We describe a patient with crowned dens syndrome which manifested with clinical (acute occipital headache) and radiographic (calcium deposits in the alar ligament) features. Our patient recovered in four days with symptomatic therapy.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by sporadic, paroxysmal attacks of fever and serosal inflammation. Although the disease usually begins before the age of 20 years, we aimed to evaluate the demography, clinical features and treatment outcome of familial Mediterranean fever in Iranian adult patients above 20 years old. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, adult patients (first attack at the age of >20 years) with a diagnosis of FMF who referred to the gastroenterology and rheumatology Clinics of Ardebil University of Medical Science (situated in north west of Iran) over the period of 2004-2009 were enrolled. FMF diagnosis was based on clinical criteria. RESULTS Forty four FMF patients (30 male and 14 female) with the mean [± Standard Deviation (SD)] age of first attack of 29 ± 7.8 years were enrolled. Abdominal pain (95.5%) and fever (91%) were the most common clinical findings. All of the patients had satisfactorily responded to therapy. Response was complete in 76.7% and partial in 23.3% of the patients. There was no clinical or laboratory evidence of amyloidosis at the time of diagnosis or during follow-up. CONCLUSION Our findings demonstrated that adult-onset FMF in Iran has different characteristics (more common in males, lesser prevalence of arthritis and erysipelas-like erythema, less delay in diagnosis) and treatment outcome (favorable response even to low-dose colchicine) in comparison with the previous data on early onset patients.

[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Reducing the rate of acute rheumatic fever nationally by two-thirds by 2017 is a New Zealand Ministry of Health priority. Northland District Health Board (DHB) has high rates of rheumatic fever, disproportionately impacting on Maori children and young people. School-based programmes and general practice both contribute to rheumatic fever prevention in detecting and appropriately treating group A streptococcal (GAS) pharyngitis. AIM: The aim of this study was to assess adherence by general practitioners and school-based sore throat programmes to national guidelines for the management of GAS pharyngitis in Northland. METHODS: Laboratory and pharmaceutical data were obtained for children and young people aged 3-20 years who had GAS positive throat swabs in Northland laboratory services between 1 April and 31 July 2012. Data were analysed separately for general practice and the school programmes for rheumatic fever prevention. RESULTS: One in five of those children presenting to general practice with a positive throat swab and complete prescription data did not receive treatment according to national guidelines, while appropriate treatment was offered to more than 98% of children accessing school-based programmes. A significant proportion of those seen in general practice received antibiotics not recommended by guidelines, an inadequate length of treatment or no prescription. There were no significant differences in the management of Maori and non-Maori children. DISCUSSION: There is room for improvement in general practice management of GAS pharyngitis in Northland. School-based management of sore throat provides high-quality management for children at high risk of rheumatic fever.

[Ab] Abstract:AIM: Our study aims to find various enzymatic and biochemical components of bile and their clinical or prognostic correlation with regard to progression and severity of hepatobiliary diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: It was a cross-sectional study where all the patients suffering from choledochal cyst (CDC), extrahepatic portal venous obstruction (EHPVO), and infantile obstructive cholangiopathy undergoing diagnostic preoperative cholangiogram; and patients with history of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) undergoing surgery for some other condition were included in the study. Intraoperatively, bile was collected from the gallbladder and sent for estimation of amylase, lipase, sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride, bicarbonate, total bilirubin, pH, cholesterol, triglycerides, and total bile acid. RESULTS: A total of 80 patients were included in the study (20 in each of the four disease-based groups). Amylase, lipase, and pH were significantly different among the patients of CDC when compared with the presence or absence of dilated intrahepatic biliary radicals. Similarly, amylase, lipase, and pH were also significantly different among the patients of EHPVO when compared with presence or absence of biliopathy. Levels of cholesterol and bile acid were significantly higher in patients who were evaluated after 1 year following TPN than those who were evaluated before 1 year. The patients of infantile cholangiopathy, who had history of fever, had significantly higher level of calcium. CONCLUSION: The components of bile show close correlation with various clinical and prognostic markers, there is a very close correlation between these parameters and the clinical severity, disease progression, and final outcome.

[Ab] Abstract:Intravascular large B-cell lymphoma (IVLBCL) is a rare type of extranodal large B-cell lymphoma characterized by the selective growth of lymphoma cells within the lumina of vessels, particularly within capillaries, with exception of larger arteries and veins. The authors reported a case of a 45-year-old woman who was admitted in hospital with refractory fever, cough and progressive dyspnea despite of receiving broad-spectrum antibiotics. Computed tomography (CT) of the lung showed bilateral patchy ground-glass opacities with some pleural effusion in the left lung. A CT-guided percutaneous lung biopsy was performed and primary pulmonary intravascular large B-cell lymphoma was diagnosed by histopathology, immunophenotype and fluorescence in situ hybridization. The patient's general status was improved after chemotherapy with R-CHOP. CT-guided percutaneous biopsy of lung is a safe and accurate diagnostic procedure in IVLBCL.

[Ab] Abstract:A new category, "EBV positive T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (LPD) of childhood", was proposed in the 2008 World Health Organization's (WHO) classifications of lymphoma. This series of lymphoproliferative disorders is rare. There are two major types of this series of disorders: systemic EBV positive T-cell LPD of childhood and hydroa vacciniforme-like lymphoma (HVLL). In this study, we describe the distinct features of four cases of EBV positive T-cell LPD of childhood in China. Two were systemic EBV positive T-cell LPD of childhood, one was HVLL and one was chronic active EBV (CAEBV). The main manifestations were lymphadenopathy, fever, hepatosplenomegaly and skin rashes. The structure of the lymph nodes in the patients ranged from preserved to partially or totally destroyed. Small- to medium-sized, atypical T cells had infiltrated the lymph nodes. In HVLL, the neoplastic cells had infiltrated the dermis and subcutaneous region surrounding sweat glands and nerves. All of the cases tested positive for CD8, other T cells, cytotoxic markers and EBV-encoded RNA (EBER) without CD56 expression. Molecular analysis was performed in three cases. All of the three analyses showed a TCRγ rearrangement and one case also had an IGH rearrangement. One of the patients with systemic EBV positive T-cell LPD of childhood experienced rapid evolved and died within five months of onset. CAEBV, systemic EBV-positive T-cell LPD of childhood and HVLL are distinct but overlapping diseases within the category of EBV-positive T-cell LPD of childhood. They constitute a continuous spectrum of EBV-infected associated disorders.

[Ti] Title:Sarcomatoid variant of ALK(-) anaplastic large cell lymphoma involving multiple lymph nodes and both lungs with production of proinflammatory cytokines: report of a case and review of literature.

[Ab] Abstract:Sarcomatoid variant of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is one of the rarest histologic variants of ALCL that consists of large, bizarre, often spindle-shaped, neoplastic cells resembling a soft tissue sarcoma. We report here such a case of ALCL with both pulmonary and multiple nodal involvement in a 47-year-old woman who initially presented with fever, cough, sputum, itching skin, and weight loss. The initial transbronchial lung biopsy showed discohesive pleomorphic malignant cells in a strong inflammatory milieu reminiscent of inflammatory malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH). Subsequent cervical lymph node biopsy revealed a spindle cell sarcoma predominantly composed of plump spindle and oval neoplastic cells in interweaving fascicles, with sparse inflammatory infiltrates, resembling pleomorphic-storiform type of MFH. However, these tumor cells in the lung and node lesions revealed essentially similar immunohistochemical features that were positive for CD30, EMA, TIA-1, granzyme B, and fascin, but negative for anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK), and T- or B-lineage-specific marker. The spindled cells stains diffuse strong positive for smooth muscle actin (SMA), along with vimentin. Further studies showed that the tumor produced large quantities of the proinflammatory cytokines interleukin-2 (IL-2), IL-6, and IL-8, which we believe may contribute to the pathogenesis of sarcomatoid transformation of this tumor, and was associated with the patient's inflammatory symptoms. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of sarcomatoid variant of ALK-negative ALCL with null cell phenotype and in situ production of proinflammatory cytokines presenting as multiple nodes and pulmonary involvement.

[Ab] Abstract:Data on allergic conditions as risk or protective factors for cancer are controversial probably because most studies have used self-reported data on mixed groups of allergies in a case-control setting. We define cancer risks in medically diagnosed hay fever/allergic rhinitis patients in a nationwide cohort study. A total of 138,723 hay fever/allergic rhinitis patients were identified from three Swedish health care databases and standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were calculated for subsequent cancers identified from the Swedish Cancer Registry. Overall cancer risk was not changed (SIR 1.03). For individual cancers, the highest SIR was observed for nasal cancer (SIR 2.63), followed by testicular (1.46) and endocrine tumors (1.42), and kidney (1.31), prostate (1.18) and breast (1.11) cancers. The results were consistent in the three sources of data and all SIRs were above unity, albeit mainly not statistically significant. The SIRs for nervous system tumors were above unity and of borderline significance. SIRs were decreased for esophageal (0.50), liver (0.62) and lung (0.78) cancers, and the three sources of data agreed in the direction of the effect. The increased risks for testicular, renal, prostate and endocrine cancers may be explained by immunological mechanisms. Excess risk for these cancer accounts for a significant population attributable fraction. Nervous system cancers showed a borderline increase and none of the histological types were significantly decreased, providing strong evidence against the published case-control studies, which have reported protective effects. The reasons for the reduced risks for esophageal, liver and lung cancer remain to be explained.
