The 8p11 Myeloproliferative Syndrome in A 3-year-Old Child
We read the interesting report by Wong et al. describing 8p11 stem cell syndrome in a 14-year-old Chinese boy . We wish to report our recent observations on a 3-year-old boy with T-cell lymphoma who was referred to the ...
An Unusual Case of Reactive Lymphocytosis Mimicking Acute Leukemia
(Taylor and Francis, 2007)
The diagnosis of acute leukemia is based on a combination of clinical, hematological, morphological, cytogenetic, and immunophenotypic data. The authors report a case of reactive lymphocytosis with extremely elevated ...
A Prompt Graft-Versus-Thalassemia Effect upon Withdrawal of CyclosporineA in A Child Who Received Allogeneic Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation
Stable mixed chimerism is a common event in children with thalassemia major who have undergone bone marrow transplantation (BMT). However, persistence of unstable mixed chimerism in these children is associated with a ...
Number of Erythrocyte Transfusions is more Predictive than Serum Ferritin in Estimation of Cardiac Iron Loading in Pediatric Patients with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Background Transfusions with packed erythrocytes is a common practice in pediatric patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who are on chemotherapy. Since there is no physiological excretion mechanism for iron, ...
Chronic Eosinophilic Leukemia with Monosomy 8 in a Five-Year-Old Girl: A Rare Case
5-year-old girl was admitted to our hospital due to fatigue and fever lasting for six months. She had systolic murmur in the mesocardiac and apex regions and hepatosplenomegaly. Laboratory evaluation revealed leukocyte and ...

Naturally Acquired Hepatitis a Antibodies After Haematopoetic Stem Cell Transplantation
(Cambridge University Press, 2011)
Haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients lose immune memory of exposure to infectious agents and vaccines accumulated throughout their lifetime and therefore need to be revaccinated. We aimed to evaluate the ...
Successful Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in a Patient with Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia Type II.
Abstract CDA are a group of inherited, rare diseases that are characterized by dyserythropoiesis and ineffective erythropoiesis associated with transfusion dependency in approximately 10% of cases. For these latter patients, ...
Human Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells Secrete Endocannabinoids That Stimulate in Vitro Hematopoietic Stem Cell Migration Effectively Comparable To Beta-Adrenergic Stimulation
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is a well-known hematopoietic stem cell (HSC)-mobilizing agent used in both allogeneic and autologous transplantation. However, a proportion of patients or healthy donors fail ...

Transfusion-Transmitted Virus Prevalence in Turkish Patients with Thalassemia
(Taylor & Francis, 2006)
In hematology patients on chronic transfusion regimes, liver diseases are frequent, and mostly related to the agents transmitted by blood products and concominant iron deposition in liver. Besides hepatitis B (HBV) and C ...
Micrococcus Sedentarius Bacteraemia Presenting with Haemophagocytic Syndrome in Previously Healthy Boy
(Taylor and Francis, 2006)
Haemophagocytic syndromes are the clinical manifestation of an increased macrophagic activity with haemophagocytosis. Infection-associated HS was originally described by Risdall in 1979, in viral disease. Since the initial ...
Diamond–Blackfan Anemia Associated Withb-Thalassemia Trait
A 14-month-old boy was referred to our hospital for evaluation of severe anemia. In the bone marrow aspiration smear, normal cellularity with severe erythroblastopenia (3%) was observed. The hemoglobin electrophoresis of ...
The Value of Flexible Bronchoscopy in Pulmonary Infections of Immunosuppressed Children
Objectives To demonstrate the value of flexible bronchoscopy (FB) and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) when determining causes of lung infection in immunocompromised children; to investigate differences in causes and radiological ...
An Automated Image Analysis System Can be Beneficial in Preclassification of Leucocytes in Children with Hematological Disease.
This study was aimed to evaluate the analytical performance of an automated image analysis system (a pilot model of Diff Master™ Octavia) for the preclassification of leucocytes in children with hematological disease. ...
