This complete, beefy e-book contains 1000s of painstakingly constructed multiple-choice and mini-case-based questions overlaying the rules of scientific oncology, malignant hematology, surgical oncology, and radiation oncology. It additionally comprises mini-cases and questions facing the biology, analysis, category, staging, and multidisciplinary therapy of cancers at each anatomic website. The very most modern themes are incorporated, equivalent to molecular innovations, certain cures, and translational melanoma examine. Concise yet specific solutions are referenced to key journals and books, and evidence-based anywhere attainable. NCCN instructions also are referenced as acceptable.

Example text

The cells within the open black rectangles represent blasts that are positive for CD34, CD7, CD5, or CD8. For example, almost all blasts express CD34 but not CD8. As indicated by the lower right histogram, the blasts express weak cytoplasmic CD3 but not terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase. (B) Flow cytometry immunophenotype study of the peripheral blood. The four frames show additional studies of CD117, CD33, CD13, myeloperoxidase (MPO), and CD79a expression by the leukemic blasts. 8A for interpretation of positive or negative expression of these five markers.

Are genetic markers in T-lineage superseded by the prognostic impact of the immunophenotypic T-ALL subtypes? It seems that the relevance of immunophenotype is even underlined by genetic markers; in fact, the overexpression of HOX11, HOX11L2, SILTAL1, and CALM–AF10 is associated with subtypes, that is, maturation states of thymocytes. Some groups observed inferior outcomes for early T-ALL: coexpression of CD13, CD33, and/or CD34; a high expression of the transcription factors ERG and/or BAALC; and overexpression of HOX11L2 and SILTAL-positive ALL.

The right frame is a cytochemical stain for myeloperoxidase (MPO) using o’toluidine as the detecting agent. A color reaction product indicates the presence of MPO. Note the presence of MPO in a metamyelocyte and weak, focal MPO positivity in several of the blasts. By differential count, >20% of blasts are weakly positive for MPO. Left frame, 40×. Right frame, 100×. 5) A. Mixed-phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL) B. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) C. Acute undifferentiated leukemia (AUL) D.
