intravascular large B-cell lymphoma

A high-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma arising in and generally confined to vascular lumina, which usually begins in the skin and CNS and rapidly spreads elsewhere.

Clinical findings
Often begins with fever of unknown origin and nonspecific cutaneous (e.g., plaques) and neurologic complaints.
 
DiffDx
Skin lesions (erythematous/purple plaques on the trunk and lower legs) may be confused with mycosis fungoides, sarcoidosis, vascular neoplasms (e.g., Kaposi sarcoma) or involvement by lymphoma or leukaemia.

Prognosis
Extremely poor; short survival is the norm despite aggressive chemotherapy. The diagnosis is often established postmortem.

(42) Researchers have characterized a system of intercellular induction of apoptosis whereby non-transformed cells communicate (via intercellular signaling) with and stimulate selective removal of neoplastically transformed cells from cell cultures that include both cell types.
Because BPDE modifies the microenvironment (e.g., stromal cells) of potential cancer-causing lung epithelial cells (if neoplastically transformed), researchers investigated whether low-dose-gamma rays could modify the in vitro response of stromal cells to BPDE exposure.
These observations suggest that the neoplastically altered cells have heterogeneous potential to produce MMP-2.

Others do not consider endogenous hormones to be carcinogenic themselves but acknowledge their role as promoters of carcinogenesis because they allow neoplastically transformed cells initiated by other carcinogens to establish and grow by modifying the target tissue (Russo and Russo 1996, 1998).
