Dear Readers,

Wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year 2016. I deeply regret the delay in publication of this issue and processing of articles in last 2-3 months. During the Executive Committee and General Body meeting of IAPM during APCON 15, some major changes have been suggested in the editorial policies. These changes were supposed to be implemented from January 2016. For the implementation of these changes, it was important to coordinate with the publishers also for changes in the website, etc. This process has taken some time leading to delay in processing of the articles.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the authors who have put their trust in this journal and have considered it worthy for publication of their good research work. I would also like to thank the members of editorial board, international advisors, and reviewers for their untiring efforts in reviewing and correcting the manuscripts. Over the years, the journal has risen to great heights and has come to be widely known across the globe.

Immune system of our body plays very important role in the prevention of various diseases. Immunosuppression due to various disorders or immunosuppressive therapy may sometimes lead to the development of neoplastic lesions such as lymphomas. Pathology of these neoplasm has been discussed in detail in the excellent review article by Kubica and Sangle in this issue. [1] It is very important to distinguish them from lymphomas in immunocompetent hosts because reduction or cessation of immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory therapy can result in complete clinical remission.

Identification and detection of changes at the molecular level have greatly helped incorrect and specific diagnosis of a disease. Akkaya et al. in their study have shown that C-MYC and BCL2 may contribute to aggressive transformation in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and may help in identification of high-risk patients with poor prognosis. Targeted therapies involving these rearrangements and its associated pathways may change the fate of DLBCLs. [2]

Case reports describing rare Griscelli syndrome [3],[4] and Hemoglobin Agenogi [5] along with a short editorial on rare hemoglobins [6] will also be of interest to the readers.

All the senior members are requested to contribute review articles in their field of expertise and also to new columns such as a quiz, clinicopathological conference, or "How I do it' for the benefit of our young and budding pathologist."

With best wishes
