Case Report in Hematology: Form for submission

This section is now developing a collaboration with the European LeukemiaNet - Workpackage 11: Cytogenetics


This section is dedicated to recurrent -but rare- chromosomes abnormalities in leukemias / lymphomas. As stated, cases of interest shall be :

  1. recurrent (i.e. previously described in at least 1 case),
  2. rare (previously described in less than 20 cases),
  3. with well documented clinics and laboratory findings, and
  4. with iconography on chromosomes,
  5. in cases of hematological malignancy.
Select all, copy and past this form in a ClarisWorks or Word file, save as a model, ... ready for use

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS:

1- Please send example(s) of the chromosome rearrangement for the reviewers and for the publication: in NO case will a paper be accepted without the chromosome and/or FISH necessary ascertainment. Images can be sent either printed by traditional mail or by e-mail; in the latter, use preferably BMP, GIF, JPG; the desk may have problems with other formats.
2- Please send (by post) a copy of the papers cited to speed the review process.
3- Please, suggest 2 referees, with complete address (e- mails in particular).
4- Please, certify herein that this case report has not previously been published (we accept cases already published as parts of large series, only if detailed data were absent).
