Warm-up

·         What is a medical case report?

·         What is an abstract?

Read the abstract of the medical case report:

Anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma with extranodal involvement of the thigh muscle: a case report

Abstract

Introduction

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The most common extranodal sites of anaplastic large cell lymphoma are skin, subcutaneous tissue, bone, lung, and gastrointestinal organs. The involvement of the skeletal muscle has been described rarely in extranodal anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

Case presentation

An 89-year-old Japanese man visited our hospital with a three-month history of swelling of his left thigh and slight fever. The swelling had rapidly enlarged and become painful within the previous three days. Magnetic resonance imaging scans revealed two soft-tissue tumors in the intramuscular layer between the vastus medialis muscle and the adductor muscle. Extensive peritumoral inflammatory edema was obvious. As the results of physical and radiological examinations were highly suggestive of abscess formation, we prescribed antibiotics for two weeks. However, our patient’s symptoms did not improve. Therefore, we suspected a soft-tissue sarcoma, and our patient underwent an incision biopsy. Histological analysis revealed that the atypical cells were positive for CD3 and CD30 but negative for anaplastic lymphoma kinase. A computed tomography scan of the thorax revealed mediastinal lymphadenopathy and bilateral pleural effusions, suggestive of extranodal involvement of skeletal muscle in anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma. We planned to give our patient systemic chemotherapy. However, rapid systemic dissemination occurred and our patient died of multiple organ failure five weeks after his first visit to our hospital.

Conclusions

Here, we present a case of anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma with extranodal involvement in the thigh muscle. The involvement of such a rare organ may lead to initial misdiagnosis and a delay in the onset of treatment.

Find in the abstract:

·         Background

·         Why is it important

·         Needs to be reported

Answer the questions:

3.       What the reader should learn from the case report?

4.       What the clinical impact will be?

5.       Is it an original case report of interest to a particular clinical specialty of medicine?

6.       Will it have a broader clinical impact across medicine?

7.       Are any teaching points identified?

Follow-up
