Immunologic and immunohistologic analysis of 27 cases with thyroid lymphomas

Abstract

Twenty-seven patients with stages I or II thyroid lymphomas were investigated immunologically. Approximately 60% of these patients had a goiter for longer than 1 year. Both the tests for serum antithyroid antibodies and histologic findings of the resected specimens showed that chronic lymphocytic (autoimmune) thyroiditis was usually present. The tumors were classified histologically as seven cases of follicular lymphomas and 20 cases of diffuse lymphomas. Immunocytologic study on suspended cells and immunohistologic study on frozen tissue sections showed that neoplastic cells in 22 of 27 cases expressed restricted immunoglobulin light chains. In remaining five cases, the neoplastic cells reacted with B-1, Leu-10, and/or Leu-14. These results indicate that thyroid lymphomas are exclusively B-cell-derived tumors.

Autoimmune Thyroiditis

Autoimmune thyroiditis is an inflammatory disease of thyroid gland due to autoimmune responses leading to lymphocytic infiltration of the gland. It is characterized by the presence of circulating thyroid antigen-specific T-cells and thyroid autoantibodies. Discover the latest research on autoimmune thyroiditis here.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

B-Cell Lymphoma

B-cell lymphomas include lymphomas that affect B cells. This subtype of cancer accounts for over 80% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the US. Here is the latest research.
