Alpha-Interferon Secreting Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells Neoplasm: A Case Report With Histological, Molecular Genetics and Long-Term Tumor Cells Culture Studies
The American Journal of Dermatopathology, 07/27/2012
Petrella T et al. – The authors report a new case of blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) with extensive immunophenoptyping, genotyping, and long–term tumor cells culture. BPDCN is a very rare and aggressive disease clinically characterized by a skin revealing localization more or less rapidly disseminating to the bone marrow and other organs with or without and leukemia. The data collected in this case report provide additional biological and genotypical data on tumor cells of BPDCN.
