TAPIA E, Oscar; KAM C, Sandra; RIFO L, Patricio  and  VILLASECA H, Miguel. Blastic plasmocytoid dendritic cell neoplasm: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2012, vol.140, n.10, pp.1321-1324. ISSN 0034-9887.

Background: We report a 74 years old male consulting for multiple painless non pruriginous pink plaques and nodules of truncal distribution that appeared 15 days earlier. A skin biopsy disclosed a blastic plasmocytoid dendritic cell neoplasm. A staging CAT scan showed lymphadenopathies located around the trachea and its bifurcation. A bone marrow biopsy did not show tumor infiltration. The patient has been treated with four cycles of cyclophosphamide-doxorubicin-vincristine-prednisone, obtaining a partial remission of the lesions.

Keywords : Induction chemotherapy; Lymphoproliferative disorders; Trophoblastic neoplasms.
