Splenomegaly is one of the major clinical manifestations of primary myelofibrosis and is common also in other chronic Philadelphia-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms, causing symptoms and signs and affecting quality of life of patients diagnosed with these diseases. We aimed to study the impact that such alteration has on thrombotic risk and on the survival of patients with essential thrombocythemia and patients with Polycythemia Vera (PV). We studied the relationship between splenomegaly (and its grade), thrombosis and survival in 238 patients with et and 165 patients with PV followed at our center between January 1997 and May 2019.

Abstract
Aortic abdominal aneurysm (AAA) is an uncommon etiology of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). The authors report a case of an 81-year-old male patient who presented with hematuria, intraoral hemorrhage, melaenas and ecchymosis of the lower back and of the abdominal wall, after being [...] Read more.
Aortic abdominal aneurysm (AAA) is an uncommon etiology of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). The authors report a case of an 81-year-old male patient who presented with hematuria, intraoral hemorrhage, melaenas and ecchymosis of the lower back and of the abdominal wall, after being medicated with etoricoxib for a back pain. During the study, an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which prolonged to the left common and internal iliac artery, was discovered. The diagnosis of AAA induced DIC was made. After endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), the patient’s hemorrhagic manifestations disappeared and the laboratory findings normalized. In conclusion, the state-of-the-art treatment of DIC is the elimination of the underlying disease; in this case, EVAR was proven to be effective in treating the aortic aneurysm and the AAA-related DIC.

Different types of amyloid concomitantly present in the same patient is believed to be improbable. We reported four cases of patients with plasma cell disorders who were found to have biopsy proven concomitant different types of amyloid fibrils deposition. We characterized amyloid fibrils using immunogold electron microscopy. There is lack of experience in the treatment of these frail and elderly patients, who are on the threshold between necessity of chemotherapy for AL amyloidosis and necessity to avoid harmful treatment related toxicity. All patients with a systemic amyloid syndrome require therapy to prevent deposition of amyloid in other organs and prevent progressive organ failure. Stem cell transplant (SCT) is preferred, but only 20% of patients are eligible Requirements for safe SCT include systolic blood pressure > 90 mm Hg, troponin T < 0.06 ng/mL, age < 70 years, and serum creatinine ≤ 1.7 mg/dL Nontransplant candidates can be offered melphalandexamethasone or cyclophosphamide-bortezomibdexamethasone.

Lymphoma can present with either lymphadenopathy or extranodal involvement. There are limited clinicopathological data pertaining to the occurrence of primary extranodal lymphoma (pENL) in Thailand. This was a retrospective study conducted at Chiang-Mai University Hospital from 2012 to 2016. Patients 18 years of age and over and with a diagnosis of pENL were enrolled onto study. Data related to clinical presentations, histology, stage, treatment and response were collected. There were 104 pENL patients with a median age of 63 years included. The most common presentation was gastrointestinal symptoms (41%), followed by ear, nose, and throat symptoms (35%). Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) was the most common morphological subtype (60%), followed by marginal zone lymphoma (15%). The majority of patients presented with stage II disease (55%). The five-year overall survival rate was 71%. The factors associated with mortality were hemoglobin <7 g/dL, B-symptoms and LDH above upper normal limits. This study illustrated that lymphoma can present at various extranodal sites. Gastrointestinal symptoms were the most common presentations and DLBCL was the most common subtype of pENL. Full article
