Immunoproliferative small intestinal disease (IPSID) is a special variant of, extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma, which affects the small intestine. In early.

A distinct band identified in the IgA region anodal to point of origin.

Mesenteric lymph nodes are often enlarged. Open in a separate window. Non-secretory alpha-chain disease in intestinal lymphoma. Common sites of involvement are small intestine duodenum and jejunum and mesenteric lymph nodes. Translocation t 11;18 associated with gastric and pulmonary MALT lymphomas has not been described. More recently, we reported a series from Pakistan immunoproliferatife. The pathology of so- called Mediterranean abdominal lymphoma with malabsorption. Responses, however, are usually transient.

No kappa or lambda light chain restriction was present. Althoughmany patients may respond, they need to be followed closely for relapse of symptoms or evolution into a higher stage of disease.

Clinicopathological features and management of immunoproliferative small intestinal disease and primary small intestinal lymphoma in Pakistan. Molecular analysis of t 9;14 p Cytogenetic abnormalities have been reported in rare single cases. The associated findings include jmmunoproliferative gmwth retardation, clubbing of fmgers and toes, abdominal pain and occasionally abdominal. A prospective study by the Tunisian-French Intestinal lymphoma group. Clinical features and outcome in 30 cases.


Alpha-chain disease and related small intestinal lymphoma: Lea Lympho-sarcomes non Hodgkiniens du grele. Two wedge biopsy specimens from the right and left hepatic lobes.

During the intesyinal phase, the process is potentially reversible if antigenic stimulus can be removed as reflected by prolonged remission induced by the antibiotic therapy Histological features in favour of celiac disease include total villous atrophy, hyperplastic elongated crypts, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes, and surface epithelial damage.

This correlates with an abnormally short alpha-chain messenger RNA produced in these patients.

Stage A is characterized by a diffuse thickening of the intestinal folds, histologically made of mature and occasionally slightly dystrophic plasma cells and lymphocytes densely infiltrating the lamina propna Figure 1.

More dysplastic cells are usually present farthest away from the surface mucosa. Subsequently most cases are characterized by xisease loss of ability to synthesize light chains. A study of 43 cases from a pathology department in Israel. Patients with stage B disease require chemotherapy.

Non-secretory alpha-chain disease with immunoproliferative small-intestinal disease. Patients with non-secmtoiy IPSID are clinically indistingnishable from those with alpha-heavy chain disease Primary upper small-intestinal, lymphoma: Hypoproteinemia was consistently noted.

Behaviour of mixed variety NHIL is dependent upon the extent of more aggressive diffuse component Natural history ofaipha-chain disease and the so-called Mediterranean lymphoma, recent immunoprolifeative.

The infiltrated pattern is most sensitive and specific finding followed by a nodular pattern.

Immunoproliferative small intestinal disease (IPSID): a model for mature B-cell neoplasms.

It has been hypothesized that recurrent intestinal disese in patients living in the endemic areas are carcinogenic. Primary small intestinal lymphoma in adults. Occasionally, when diagnosis cannot be established on endoscopic biopsy, diagnostic and staging lapamtomy may be indicated Results of laparatomy in immunoproliferative small intestinal disease. It has been suggested that when laparotomy is planned, following procedures should be carried out: It is unclear if immunoblasts in stage B disease have any prognostic significance.


Low-grade NEIL is essentially an incurable disease, however, prolonged remissions are possible with less aggressive chemotherapy such as meiphalan or cyclophosphamide, vincristine and – prednisone CVP combination therapy. Biopsy of several mesenteric, para-aortic lymph nodes, particularly if they appear abnonnal.

The encoding gene sequence reveals a deletion of V region and parts of C H 1 domain.

Mediterranean lymphomas with alpha-chain monoclonal gammopathy. Molecular genetic analysis has shown clonal rearrangement of heavy and light chains, even in early cases responsive to antibiotic therapy.

Most untreated IPSID patients progress to lymphoplasmacytic intesfinal immunoblastic lymphoma invading the intestinal wall and mesenteric lymph nodes, and may metastasize to a distant organ. Serum protein electrophoresis SPE with immunofixation was subsequently carried out, which showed intestinla distinct band in the IgA region but without corresponding light chains Figure 5.

Immunoproliferative small intestine disease (IPSID) / Mediterranean lymphoma

Immunoproliferative small intestinal disease. IPSID lymphomas reveal excessive plasma cell differentiation and produce truncated alpha heavy chain proteins lacking the light chains as well as the first constant domain. In all Journals Jejunal biopsy revealed severe villous blunting and an intense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate filling and expanding the lamina propria with well-preserved surface epithelium Figure 1.
