Introduction Hodgkin lymphoma is a lymphoid malignancy that typically affects young adults; the median age at diagnosis is 34 years in our database GHSG A bone marrow aspirate shows a mildly left-shifted myeloid lineage but there is no evidence of a clonal proliferation by flow cytometry, ruling out a hematopoietic malignancy.
Thus a diagnosis of cyclic neutropenia was made. Use of the OBI has not been studied in pediatric patients. Since he was uncertain, the doctor sent the patient to a more specialized hematologist. Rest of the physical examination was unremarkable.
Physicians should ask about weight loss, fever, or night sweats; medications; recent viral infections; and rheumatologic complaints.
FSH, LH, and TSH semen analysis and sperm storage Psychosocial adaptation Mandatory for the Cotswolds classification Individual and familial history, clinical examination as per Cotswolds recommendations Blood counts and routine workup: The immunostaining showed strong positivity of CD30 in these cells with additional positive staining of CD15 and a negative staining for CD Examination of a bone marrow biopsy specimen shows that the marrow has been replaced with noncaseating granulomas figure 1figure 1.
Pediatr Transplant ; The bone marrow aspirate may be sent for cytogenetic analysis and flow cytometry to rule out a malignant disorder or myelodysplasia.
Our patient was given these and he showed remarkable improvement within a month.
Table 1 Hodgkin lymphoma: Solid organs such as lung, liver, spleen, and bone marrow can also be involved and might cause specific symptoms such as cough, dyspnea, abdominal discomfort or cytopenia. A radiograph of her chest shows bilateral hilar adenopathy and upper zone interstitial markings, which have progressed since a previous chest radiograph in January13 months prior to admission.
A missed dose could occur due to an OBI failure or leakage. Diarrhoea, Pharyngitis, Apthous ulcers, Neutropenia, Granular lymphocytes.
Computed tomographic scans show hilar, retroperitoneal, axillary, and inguinal adenopathy and confirm mild splenomegaly.
It may occur as early as the first week after start of therapy Manifestations may include generalized signs and symptoms such as fever, abdominal pain, malaise, back pain, and increased inflammatory markers e.
If the patient misses a dose, a new dose should be administered by single prefilled syringe for manual use as soon as possible after detection.
Selected conventional salvage regimen Regimen. Review the Patient Information and Patient Instructions for Use with the patient and provide the instructions to the patient.
If the prefilled syringe for manual use is used with the OBI, the patient may receive less than the recommended dose. She engrafted within two weeks but developed atypical pneumonia by day Three weeks later he came with the same complaints as before.
Periodicity of cyclic neutropenia has a cyclic pattern reoccurring usually at 21 or 28 days interval. Bone marrow study revealed decreases neutrophil precursors during these episodes. The sore throat was associated with dysphagia and ulcers in the mouth.
Mutations in the ELA2 gene correlate with more severe expression of neutropenia: Risk allocation for Hodgkin lymphoma patients The recommended work-up and studies for the initial evaluation of Hodgkin lymphoma are shown in Table 1.
The physician should focus first on the severity of the neutropenia and on the presence of symptoms suggesting infection.
Discussion Cyclic neutropenia is a rare benign haematological disorder and has an estimated frequency of 1: Her leukocyte count is 0. Instruct patients using the OBI to notify their healthcare professional immediately in order to determine the need for a replacement dose of pegfilgrastim if they suspect that the device may not have performed as intended.
Cyclic neutropenia is a rare neutrophil disorder in which the neutrophil count drops to a very low level at intervals of about weeks.
In this review, we present the case of a patient with apparently acute severe neutropenia. Various laboratory tests were performed including full blood count, bone marrow studies and various cultures which showed neutropenia, streptococcal pharyngitis and Campylobacter jejuni in stools.
The choice of chemotherapy has not been evaluated in a prospectively randomized trial, and combinations such as DHAP, ICE ifosfamide, carboplatin, etoposideIGEV ifosfamide, gemcitabine, vinorelbine or GVD gemcitabine, vinorelbine, pegylated liposomal doxorubicin have been used successfully Table 2.
Difference in onset of disease suggests heterogeneity in its pathophysiology. Studies show that G-CSF and antibiotics are the first line treatments: The results of her liver function tests, serum vitamin B12, and folate concentrations are normal. In cyclic neutropenia, G-CSF shortens the periods of neutropenia as well as the length of the neutropenic cycle.
Thus, with this histologically confirmed relapsed CDpositive classical Hodgkin lymphoma, the decision was made to treat her with two cycles of DHAP dexamethasone, cytarabine, cisplatin followed by high-dose chemotherapy BEAM; carmustine, etoposide, cytarabine, melphalan and autologous stem cell transplant.CASE STUDY otics during his hospital course and was discharged factors for this patient include age, cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy regimen, history of febrile neutropenia with past chemotherapy regimens, chronic cytopenias, malnutrition, and abnormal liver function.
According to. Ineffective communication is a leading cause of preventable patient injuries, wrong medication events and patient death. This case study has displayed the importance of. A case of cyclic neutropenia in adults Thus a diagnosis of cyclic neutropenia was made.
The patient was provided symptomatic treatment, G-CSF and Ceftriaxone during the subsequent neutropenic spells. Beaufils S, et al. Mutations in the ELA2 gene correlate with more severe expression of neutropenia: a study of 81 patients from the. Case Study of a Newly Diagnosed HL Patient: The Role of CD30 from Diagnosis to Treatment.
Case Discussion published on May 17, with 33% of patients achieving complete remission. 9 Brentuximab vedotin was well tolerated with 20% grade III/IV neutropenia and 9% grade III peripheral sensory neuropathy.

Home For Trainees Fellows Case Studies for Fellows Case Study: Neutropenia in a Patient with Rheumatoid Arthritis A year-old man. The diagnosis of sarcoidosis is one of exclusion—ruling out infectious and immune causes for the clinical findings and for the tissue granulomas.
25 In this patient, the severity of the neutropenia was unusual for sequestration, and it was necessary to look for other causes.Download
