Severe aplastic anemia (SAA), a fatal disease, requires multiple transfusion, immunosuppressive therapy, and finally, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) as the definitive treatment. We hypothesized that iron overloading associated with multiple transfusions and HSCTrelated complications may adversely affect cardiac function. Left ventricular (LV) function was assessed in children after HSCT for SAA.

Subacute necrotizing lymphadenitis is a benign form of lymphadenitis that was first described in Japan by Kikuchi in 1972. It mainly affects young women and usually manifests as fever and lymphadenopathy. Although it is a benign self-limited lymphadenitis, it has been misdiagnosed as malignant lymphoma. Histologically, involved lymph nodes contain a necrotizing process characterized by patch, well-circumscribed area with eosinophilic fibrinoid material. There is...
