Case 44

I would like to share with you another case of mine, that of DU, a 43 year old female who was previously diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and has undergone chemotherapy for the said condition. A year prior to admission, the patient noted a skin lesion located at the right lateral chest wall. The specimen submitted were 2 elliptical fragments of tissue with overlying skin, measuring 2 x 1.2 x 0.8 cm and 1.8 x 0.9 x 0.7 cm. Cut sections of each reveal a tan white solid surface. On microscopic examination, there are geographical zones of inflammation composed of an admixture of lymphocytes, eosinophils, and histiocytes. Also noted are rather atypical cells that somehow resemble uninucleate and binucleate forms of Reed-Sternberg cells. My initial impression of this case is a Cutaneous Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Lymphocytic Predominant subtype.

Case 43

The patient is M.C. a 43 year old female diagnosed to have Polycythemia Vera. An hour prior to admission, patient experienced abrupt onset of left-sided weakness. The patient was admitted and worked up for Myeloproliferative Disorder. A bone marrow biopsy was done wherein an elongated fragment of soft to gritty, tan white tissue measuring 0.7 cm long was submitted. Attached are shots taken from her slides.

My initial impression is a Hypercellular Marrow with Erythroid and Megakaryocytic Hyperplasia.
