Severe phototoxicity associated with long-term voriconazole treatment.

Hide Abstract
Voriconazole is a second-generation triazole antifungal approved for the treatment of invasive fungal infections, particularly with Aspergillus, Candida, Fusarium, and Scedosporium spp. Frequently reported adverse effects of voriconazole include visual disturbance (21 %), elevated liver enzymes (15.6 %) and rashes (7 %), which are largely attributable to drug-induced photosensitivity. We report a case of serious phototoxicity in a 8 year old boy who underwent chemotherapy for AML. He received voriconazole for the treatment and subsequent re-infection prophylaxis after pulmonary aspergillosis. One year after the start of therapy he developed blistering eruptions on his face after minimal sunlight exposure. Recent reports about the development of squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma, respectively, in children during and after oral therapy with voriconazole seem to warrant systematic follow-up investigations of all voriconazole-treated patients.

Ongoing remission after intensive ALL-type chemotherapy in pediatric intestinal T-cell lymphoma.

Hide Abstract
A rare case of primary intestinal T-cell lymphoma (ITL) of an 8-year-old boy is reported. Medium- to large-sized tumor cells were betaF1+, CD3+, CD8+. TIA-1+, but CD4-, CD5-, CD30-, CD56-, CD20-, CD79a-, TdT-, consistent with an intraepithelial lymphocyte (IEL) origin. They showed monoclonal rearrangement of the T-cell receptor gamma-chain and no evidence of EBV infection. No clinical, histologic, laboratory, or genetic evidence of celiac disease was detected. In adults, ITL is often associated with enteropathy and has a very poor outcome. Our patient remains in first remission 30 months after finishing the acute lymphoblastic leukemia protocol COALL-07-03 high risk standard.

Hide Abstract
Between August 1996 and December 2004, 369 patients with a median age of 41 years (range: 1-68 years) received stem cell transplantation (SCT) from unrelated donors after an antithymocyte-globulin (ATG)-containing conditioning regimen. In 268 patients, complete molecular typing (4-digit) of HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, and -DQB1 was available: 110 patients were completely matched for 10 alleles, 91 patients had 1 allele-mismatch (9/10), and 67 patients were mismatched for 2-4 alleles (6-8/10). The incidence of grade II-IV acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) was 33% in the 10/10, 41% in the 9/10, and 40% in the 6-8/10 group, respectively (P = .1). The cumulative incidence of treatment-related mortality (TRM) and relapse among the groups were similar (27%, 31%, and 32%, P = .2; and 28%, 27%, and 26%, P = .9. After a median follow-up of 35 months (range: 3-120 months), the estimated 5-year disease-free survival (DFS) was 42% and did not differ among the 10/10, the 9/10, and the 6-8/10-mismatched groups (45% versus 42% versus 39%) (P = .5). In multivariate analysis, only age (hazard ratio [HR] 1.013) (P = .004) and bad-risk disease (HR 1.975) (P < .001) were independent risk factors for DFS. In conclusion, pretransplant ATG allows allogeneic SCT from unrelated donors with HLA disparities.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
