  • [Title] Malignant vascular tumors: clinical presentation, surgical therapy, and long-term prognosis.
  • BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to analyze the presentation of, surgery for, and prognosis of malignant vascular tumors (MVTs).
  • Twenty-four men and 19 women (median age, 55.3 years) were referred for 30 primary tumors and 13 recurrences.
  • Tumors were located in the extremities (n = 16), trunk (n = 3), abdomen (n = 15), retroperitoneum (n = 7), and thyroid gland (n = 2).
  • MVTs of the extremities and trunk and localized disease indicated a better prognosis than abdominal or retroperitoneal MVTs (univariate and multivariate analyses: P = .0122 and P = .0287) and metastasized stages (univariate and multivariate analyses: P = .0187 and P = .0287).
  • Tumor site and stage are important prognostic factors.
  • Surgery is potentially curative, especially for localized disease of the extremities and trunk.

  • [Title] Twenty-five year outcome of sequential abdominal radiotherapy and melphalan:implications for future management of epithelial carcinoma of the ovary.
  • METHODS: From 1970 to 1976, 94 women with stages I-III epithelial ovarian carcinoma enrolled in a prospective nonrandomized clinical trial were prescribed 20 Gy to the upper abdomen and 50 Gy to the pelvis followed by courses of melphalan (1 mg/kg/course).
  • Disease-free survival was 48% at 5 years and remained at 45% from 10 to 25 years.
  • Of the 31 patients undergoing a second-look surgical procedure, 84% were free of tumor.
  • Stage and the presence of palpable postoperative disease were significant prognostic factors.
  • Disease-free survivals were 95% from 5 to 25 years for stage I, 70% at 5 years and 60% at 25 years for stage II, and 20% from 5 to 25 years for stage III (P < 0.0001).
  • Although no patient with postoperative palpable tumor was cured, 25% lived beyond 2 years.
  • Stage III patients without postoperative palpable tumor achieved a 47% 25-year disease-free survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The long-term disease-free survival obtained with abdominopelvic radiotherapy followed by single alkylating agent chemotherapy has not been exceeded by three subsequent decades of multiagent chemotherapy trials.
  • Abdominal radiotherapy may be useful to consolidate complete responses following therapy multiagent chemotherapy, particularly with the upper abdominal dose escalation provided by intensity modulated radiation therapy and possibly in conjunction with chemotherapy.

  • Burkitt's lymphoma is a high grade B-cell neoplasm.
  • Its non-endemic form typically presents as abdominal mass in children.
  • This rapidly growing tumour may cause symptoms due to mass effect or direct involvement of the bowel.
  • Clinical presentations like acute abdomen can be secondary to intestinal obstruction, intussusception or sometimes perforation.We describe here a case of an adult male with an unusual presentation of appendiceal Burkitt's lymphoma mimicking acute cholecystitis or appendicitis.

  • [Title] Long-term endoscopic and clinical follow-up of untreated type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours.
  • BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumour surveillance and treatment are a matter of debate.
  • Based on the favourable behaviour of this neoplasm, we performed an endoscopic and clinical follow-up in 11 patients affected by type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours, avoiding any specific treatment.
  • METHODS: Between 1994 and 2006, we prospectively recorded the data of 11 untreated patients with type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours who underwent an endoscopic and clinical follow-up.
  • All the patients were also evaluated by means of an abdominal computed tomography scan, somatostatin receptor scintigraphy and blood tests.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data confirm the literature data of the indolent behaviour of type 1 gastric neuroendocrine tumours and suggest that a careful endoscopic follow-up, without any treatment, might represent a reasonable and safe option in selected patients.

  • [Title] Biology, diagnosis and therapeutic options in gastrointestinal stromal tumours.
  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are the most common form of mesenchymal tumour of the intestinal tract.
  • Extra-abdominal localizations are very rare.
  • Most GIST have a mutation in kit receptor which becomes constitutive for the neoplasm.
  • The disease clinically can present as an occasionally finding or can be diagnosed after hemorrhage, perforation or obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Surgery is the mainstay of the therapy mainly in primary tumour.
  • More debated is its role in metastatic disease.
  • In this situation imatinib mesilate, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, is the drug of choice which has changed the natural history of the disease.
  • New drugs are now under evaluation in order to prolong the pharmacological activity of tyrosine kinase inhibition after progression of the disease.

  • Ovarian low malignant potential tumor account for 10 to 20 percent of ovarian epithelial tumors.
  • Likewise, if they spread outside the ovary, for example, into the abdominal cavity, they do not usually grow into the lining of the abdomen.
  • Guidelines for surgical treatment of borderline ovarian tumors are similar to those for ovarian cancer and include hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
  • However, patients with borderline ovarian tumors tend to be younger than women with invasive ovarian cancer.
  • Previous studies have suggested the safety of conservative surgery with unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy or cystectomy for patients with stage I borderline ovarian tumors.
  • Despite infrequent data, this observation has been expanded to include women with advanced-stage disease.

  • We present the case of a 7-year-old child who came at our attention because of an acute low abdominal pain due to the torsion of an ovarian immature grade 1 teratoma on its pedicle.
  • The magnetic resonance imaging characteristics of the neoplasm are reviewed and correlated with histopathologic findings.
  • As it was highlighted in our case, magnetic resonance imaging may be part of the diagnostic approach of this rare disease entity also in a small child in emergency.

  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients admitted over a 25-year period with a diagnosis of AH and malignant adrenal neoplasm were retrospectively reviewed.
  • RESULTS: Malignant adrenal neoplasms were reported in 14 of 217 patients (6.4%) presenting with AH.
  • The most common presenting symptom was abdominal pain (n = 6), followed by altered mental status and shock (2) and hypercortisolism (1).
  • In 10 patients the adrenal tumor was metastatic.
  • All primary adrenal tumors were unilateral.
  • CONCLUSION: Most patients with AH in the setting of malignant adrenal neoplasm had metastatic tumors to the adrenal glands.
  • These patients do not typically present in hemorrhagic shock, allowing for adequate preoperative evaluation for function and assessment for primary tumors.

  • [Title] Postsplenectomy sclerosing extramedullary hematopoietic tumor with unexpected good clinical evolution: morphologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular analysis of one case and review of the literature.
  • Sclerosing extramedullary hematopoietic tumor has been described as a rare manifestation of chronic myeloproliferative neoplasm.
  • The lack of knowledge about this entity has caused it to be mistaken for many types of nonhematopoietic and hematopoietic tumors.
  • We present the case of a 71-year-old lady with a long history of primary myelofibrosis, which developed multiple abdominal sclerosing extramedullary hematopoietic tumors with good clinical evolution.
  • Nonchronic myeloid leukemia myeloproliferative neoplasm included a JAK2 mutation as part of the diagnosis algorithm.
  • The absence of JAK2 demonstrated in the paraffin samples of the tumors may be related to the unusual evolution in this particular case.

  • [Title] Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) of the uterus: an outcome-based clinicopathologic analysis of 41 reported cases.
  • The uterus and retroperitoneum have emerged as the most frequently reported anatomic sites of origin of perivascular epithelioid cell tumors (PEComas), a poorly defined neoplasm that is characterized by varying amounts of spindle and epithelioid cells with clear to eosinophilic cytoplasm that display immunoreactivity for melanocytic markers, most frequently HMB-45.
  • (1) a malignant group that was comprised of cases associated with patient death of disease and/or clinical malignancy as evidenced by local and/or distant extension outside of the uterus (n=13, group 1) and (2) a "nonmalignant" group of cases in which neither of the above features were present (n=18, group 2).
  • Five of the group 1 patients experienced distant (extra-abdominal) metastases.
  • The group 1 tumors were significantly larger than the group 2 tumors (averages 9.6 cm vs. 4.67 cm respectively, P=0.04); however, there were no size thresholds that, in of themselves, reliably classified 75% or more of the cases in both groups.
  • PEComas are tumors of uncertain histogenesis and malignant potential that seem to display some morphologic and immunophenotypic overlap with smooth muscle neoplasia.

  • We herein report a rare case of myositis ossificans originating from the abdominal rectus muscle, found in a 38-year-old woman who presented with a left upper abdominal mass.
  • The mass was initially suspected to be a malignant neoplasm because no history of either operation or trauma existed for this patient.
  • Moreover, the location of the mass was unusual and the enhancement patterns of the dynamic magnetic resonance images were similar to that of a malignant tumor.
  • Although abdominal myositis ossificans is extremely rare, it is one of the causes of abdominal mass lesions and can be mistaken for a malignant tumor.

  • BACKGROUND: The aim of our study was the analysis of long-term developments in the surgical therapy for esophageal carcinoma at our hospital over a period of 20 years with a differentiated view on the two predominant histological tumour types.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between September 1985 and September 2005, esophageal resections were performed in 470 patients at our clinic on account of a malignant tumour of the esophagus.
  • The abdomino-thoracic resection with abdominal and extended mediastinal lymph node dissection as well as intrathoracic anastomosis was the standard treatment in the case of squamous cell carcinoma, whereas in adenocarcinoma a transhiatal resection with abdominal and dorsal mediastinal lymphadenectomy and cervical esophagogastrostomy was carried out.
  • RESULTS: Both tumour entities displayed in the last interval (10 / 1995 to 9 / 2005) significantly earlier tumour stages.
  • These are mainly due to epidemiological and diagnostic aspects, an improved selection of patients, whereby the operative procedure is adapted to the tumour stage and the operative risk for the patient.

  • However, the role of the gamma2 protein in tumor invasion remains unknown.
  • It was found that tumor necrosis factor-alpha, by itself or in a combination with transforming growth factor-beta1, strongly induced the secretion of the monomeric gamma2 chain.
  • When these cell lines were i.p. injected into nude mice, they produced larger tumors in the abdominal cavity and showed much stronger invasive growth onto the diaphragms than the control cell line.

  • [Title] Eliminating unenhanced CT when evaluating abdominal neoplasms in children.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to evaluate a CT protocol that eliminates the unenhanced phase for imaging pediatric abdominal neoplasms.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively performed a case series study of all the abdominal CT scans on children and adolescents found in our archives.
  • The radiologists were separately asked to formulate the most probable diagnosis and to decide whether tumor calcification was present.
  • The sensitivity and specificity of each method for diagnosing the more frequent neoplasms were also measured.
  • The sensitivity and specificity of the two methods for the most frequent neoplasms were similar.
  • The evaluations without the unenhanced phase showed good sensitivity and specificity for tumor calcifications.
  • CONCLUSION: CT protocols without the unenhanced phase are a viable alternative for evaluating abdominal neoplasms in children and adolescents.

  • Paragangliomas are extra-adrenal tumors of the autonomic nervous system and may be found within the skull base, neck, chest, and abdomen.
  • When presenting within the abdominal cavity, they may arise as a primary retroperitoneal neoplasm and can mimic vascular malformations or other conditions related to specific retroperitoneal organs such as the pancreas, kidneys, or adrenals.
  • Retroperitoneal paragangliomas are mostly benign with good prognosis; however, they can present with abdominal pain, palpable mass, or hypertensive episodes.
  • Surgical excision remains the mainstay of treatment, although advanced disease and proximity to vital organs can make excision difficult or impossible.

  • A right colonic neoplasm was diagnosed, observed only at surgery, as neither computed tomography or ultrasonography showed the intestinal malrotation.
  • The small bowel and the colon were located in the right and left side of the abdominal cavity, respectively.
  • Lymphatic vessels were therefore marked with subserosal injection of patent blue in the proximity of the tumor.

  • [Title] Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours.
  • INTRODUCTION: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNT) are infrequent epithelial neoplasms associated with a better outcome than pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
  • Eight patients presented with nonfunctional tumours.
  • In six patients, the tumour was not resected.
  • RESULTS: Postoperative complication rate was 22%: six pancreatic fistulas, three intra-abdominal collections, one remnant pancreatitis and one pancreatic pseudocyst.
  • Actuarial mean survival was 163 months and was longer in insulinomas, in those tumours completely resected and in tumours with benign histological features.
  • CONCLUSION: Conservative surgery of the pancreas is preferred, but aggressive surgery is indicated when the primary tumour can be controlled.

  • [Title] Significance of tumour calcification in ovarian carcinoma.
  • The purpose of this study was to assess the pattern and significance of tumour calcification in ovarian carcinoma.
  • Their tumour characteristics, serum calcium levels, treatment and survival were compared with a control group of patients with non-calcifying disease.
  • Available serial CT scans were reviewed for changes in both soft-tissue and calcified disease according to RECIST (response evaluation criteria in solid tumours) criteria where feasible.
  • Temporal changes in calcification were correlated with changes in soft tissue disease and CA125 levels.
  • The calcified group numbered 122 (22 other patients had calcifying tumour but insufficient clinical data).
  • There was a significant difference (p<0.001) between the two groups in the distribution of histological type, with serous tumours being more common in the calcified group (74/122 (61%)) than in the controls (509/1498 (34%)).
  • The calcified tumour patients tended to have lower grade disease (p<0.001).
  • Distribution of calcification was diffusely peritoneal in 34 patients, in association with a pelvic mass in 15, nodal in 11 and within the anterior abdominal wall in 2.
  • In conclusion, calcification tends to occur most commonly in serous cystadenocarcinomata and in tumours of lower grade.
  • Changes in calcification cannot be used as a marker of disease response.

  • An 8-year-old girl presented with abdominal tumor that was discovered incidentally.
  • At surgery, the tumor originated from the retroperitoneal sympathetic trunk; and the histologic diagnosis was ganglioneuroblastoma, nodular (GNBn), unfavorable histology on Shimada's classification, International Neuroblastoma Staging System (INSS) stage 1.
  • There was no tumor detected, and tumor markers decreased to normal range by 18 months of age.
  • We examined her previous computed tomographic films retrospectively and noticed a mass in the same region indicating that the tumor had been there for 8 years without treatment.

  • [Title] Evaluation of tumor angiogenesis and thymidine phosphorylase tissue expression in patients with endometrial cancer.
  • The formation of new blood vessels in endometrial cancer tissue is a main process, which leads to tumor progression, and is connected with tumor expansion and invasiveness.
  • The aim of the study was evaluation of thymidine phosphorylase protein (TP) expression in human endometrial cancer cells by immunohistochemistry and comparison obtained data with intensity of angiogenesis process and clinicopathological factors as FIGO stage of disease and histopathologic grade.
  • Endometrial cancer specimens were obtained from 55 postmenopausal patients (aged 52 to 74 years) underwent total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
  • Histopathological typing and grading of the endometrial tumors (G-1, G-2, G-3) as well as myometrial invasion (<1/2, >1/2) were assessed using standard criteria, on hematoxylin-eosin sections.
  • At the surgery, FIGO clinical stage of disease was determined.
  • Although we found no statistically significant differences in TP expression between histopathologic grades, particular FIGO stages showed a significant trend of increase TP tumor overexpression.
  • The most intensive new blood vessel formation was observed in G-2 of tumor differentiation grade (p=0.013 for ANOVA test) Mean angiogenic points density (APD) values in cases of G-1 histopathologic grade reached 135.7; values of G-2 and G-3 grades reached 213.8 and 162.8, respectively.
  • Mean intensity of angiogenesis in the first FIGO stage of disease reached 160.0 APD, in stage II 205.6 APD, and in the third 286.9, respectively.
  • Angiogenesis was more intensive in cases of advanced tumors - analysis of variance (ANOVA) confirmed statistically significant differences in APD values between FIGO stage groups (p=0.0007).
  • The intensity of angiogenesis process increases according to FIGO stage of disease, which is connected with progressing of cancer disease.
  • Thymidine phosphorylase can play an important role in endometrial cancer progression and could offer additional information about advance of disease.

  • OBJECTIVE: We sought to assess whether the specialty of the surgeon or the hospital involved in the initial management of women with ovarian cancer determined the likelihood of unnecessary repeated abdominal surgery and long-term patient survival.
  • METHODS: We conducted a population-based study involving women in Ontario, Canada, who had epithelial ovarian cancer treated initially with abdominal surgery between January 1996 and December 1998.
  • We controlled for stage of disease and other factors associated with these outcomes.
  • Our analysis showed that repeat surgery was associated with the surgeon's discipline, younger patient age, well-differentiated tumours and early stage of disease.
  • However, survival was not associated with the surgeon's discipline; rather, it was associated with advanced patient age, increasing comorbidities, advanced stage of disease, poorly differentiated tumours, urgent surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy.

  • The clinical presentations included abnormal vaginal bleeding, abdominal symptoms and abnormal Pap smears.
  • The median size of the tumors was 7.5 cm (range=1.2 to 14.8 cm).
  • The histologic features were similar to those of the ovarian counterpart, with tumor cells containing the high-grade nuclei and arranged in complex papillae.
  • Immunohistochemical study showed that the tumor cells demonstrated diffuse and strong nuclear staining for p53 and Ki-67.
  • However, ten of the 15 cases had extrauterine disease, with peritoneal (6/15) and nodal (9/15) involvement.
  • Tumors with deep myometrial invasion, lymphovascular permeation and nodal metastasis were associated with worse prognosis by univariate analysis.
  • The tumor stage, lymph node status, lymphovascular permeation and depth of myometrial invasion were important prognostic factors.

  • Data recorded from the pathology reports included tumor size, histologic subtype, grade (WHO), and stage (TNM).
  • The classic triad of flank pain, gross hematuria and palpable abdominal mass were not encountered.
  • Due to the increased detection of tumors with the use of imaging techniques such as ultrasound and computerized tomography, an increased number of incidentally diagnosed RCCs are found.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The challenge with advanced ovarian cancer is to obtain a detailed appreciation of the extent of disease.
  • Available data would suggest that a 5-year survival rate of 50% is only possible for those patients who have had complete cytoreduction of all tumour.
  • Therefore, the best surgical option for patients with advanced ovarian cancer is a 'complete' primary surgical procedure that achieves complete clearance of the abdominal cavity rather than 'optimal' surgery that leaves tumour nodules up to 1 cm in diameter in situ in the patient.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included 82 patients operated for resectable gastric cancer between January 1(st) 2001 and July 1(st) 2003 at the Maribor Teaching Hospital Department of Abdominal and General Surgery.
  • RESULTS: Comparison of EUS and pathohistological assessments revealed accuracy of EUS staging for locoregional tumor infiltration (category T) in 68% of patients.
  • There was no significant difference in accuracy of EUS staging with regard to tumor site (P = 0.768) or tumor size (P = 0.766).
  • CONCLUSIONS: According to our results the accuracy of EUS staging matched pathohistological staging with regard to tumor infiltration and lymph node stage in 68% and 57% of cases respectively.
  • The present uncertainty in EUS stage reliability makes it necessary to have a strategy of radical resection with D2 lymphadenectomy in patients within EUS stages T1-T3, with additional CT examinations in more advanced EUS stages in order to visualize the circumstances of tumor growth.
  • Nevertheless, EUS provides an opportunity for the surgeon to gain more insight into the loco-regional circumstances of the gastric tumor process.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Epithelial ovarian carcinoma with extensive upper abdominal disease may require splenectomy for optimal tumor cytoreduction.
  • We describe patients who required splenectomy during tumor reduction procedures for primary or recurrent epithelial ovarian carcinoma.
  • The most common indications for splenectomy were direct metastatic involvement (46%), facilitation of an en bloc resection of perisplenic disease (41%), and intraoperative trauma (13%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In patients with clinically significant upper abdominal disease, splenectomy as part of primary or secondary cytoreductive surgery is associated with modest morbidity and mortality.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A 10-yr-old male intact Asian small clawed otter (Aonyx cinerus) was presumptively diagnosed by histopathology and immunohistochemistry with lymphangiosarcoma after bony destruction of the ischium and spinal column from local tumor invasion had caused progressive signs of hind limb lameness and paresis/paralysis, which led to humane euthanasia.
  • At necropsy, the primary tumor was identified as a flocculent mass present under the caudal lumbar vertebrae.
  • The tumor had metastasized to at least two different sites within the spleen.
  • The abdominal tumor was confirmed to be of endothelial origin by the use of immunohistochemical staining for factor VIII-related antigen and was confirmed as lymphatic origin versus vascular origin because of the lack of red blood cells within the vessels.
  • This is the first report of lymphangiosarcoma, an uncommon malignant neoplasm of lymphatic origin, in a mustelid and the first report of neoplastic disease in an Asian small clawed otter.
  • In addition, the presentation of hind limb paresis associated with bony lysis because of local tumor invasion has not been previously reported with lymphangiosarcoma in humans, domestic animals, or nondomestic animals.

  • [Title] Duodenal epithelioid gastrointestinal stromal tumor with prominent granular cell features.
  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are a group of mesenchymal tumors arising from the wall of the gastrointestinal tract that are characterized by activating mutations in KIT or PDGFRA.
  • We report a case of duodenal gastrointestinal stromal tumor with a highly unusual epithelioid morphology that had an appearance reminiscent of a steroid producing neoplasm, such as an adrenal cortical neoplasm or, alternatively, a renal cell carcinoma variant.
  • The recognition of the current tumor as a duodenal gastrointestinal stromal tumor was prompted by its apparent location in the duodenal wall.
  • Ancillary immunohistochemical and molecular sequence analyses were necessary to confirm the diagnosis as a gastrointestinal stromal tumor.
  • The current case illustrates the importance of considering gastrointestinal stromal tumor in the differential diagnosis of any epithelioid tumors in the gastrointestinal tract or the abdominal-pelvic cavity.

  • [Title] Isolated metastatic tumors to the pancreas: Hôpital St-Antoine experience.
  • OBJECTIVES: Metastatic tumors to the pancreas are rare and usually present a part of an advanced metastatic disease.
  • Isolated metastasis is even rarer and may be difficult to differentiate from primary pancreatic neoplasm.
  • METHODS: We made a retrospective review from a series of pancreatic resections for metastatic disease, which occurred during the last decade.
  • Only 4 patients were symptomatic (abdominal pain, 3 cases; melena, 1 case).
  • The metastasis was metachronous in 11 cases, with mean disease-free interval of 9 years.
  • The preoperative diagnosis was endocrine tumor in 4 cases.
  • At the time of follow-up, 3 patients had died of malignancy and 9 were still alive and free of disease, with a mean follow-up of 3 years.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Isolated metastatic tumors to the pancreas may be detected decades after the initial diagnosis and can be asymptomatic, emphasizing the need for lifelong surveillance in this population.

  • AIMS: The objective was to identify prognostic factors of disease-free and overall survival in stage I endometrial carcinoma, thereby potentially facilitating the selection of patients who are on high risk for recurrence and who may benefit from transection of a vaginal cuff.
  • RESULTS: In the univariate analysis the factors associated with poor disease-free survival in stage I carcinoma were higher tumor grade (P=0.013), and no removed vaginal cuff (P=0.025).
  • The factors that maintained associated with poor disease-free and overall survival were higher tumor grade and lack of vaginal cuff.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The removal of a vaginal cuff during abdominal hysterectomy was found to be an independent prognostic factor in stage I endometrial carcinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater has a relatively higher resection rate, lower recurrence rate, and more favorable prognosis than other malignant tumors of the periampullary region.
  • Finally, 87 patients were reviewed and analyzed to assess predictors of tumor recurrence.
  • RESULTS: Among the 87 patients, 37 patients (42.5%) experienced recurrent disease.
  • The mean length of time to recurrence was 29.3 +/- 35.3 months, and the most common sites of recurrence were the intra-abdominal organs: liver and loco-regional lymph nodes.
  • In the early recurrence group, ulcer formation tumors and poorly differentiated tumors were more common in comparison with the late recurrence group.
  • Lymph node metastasis was identified as an independent factor of tumor recurrence after curative resection for ampulla of Vater carcinoma.
  • Also, the fact that a higher probability of recurrence is anticipated in cases of ulcer formation and poorly differentiated tumors, there exists a need for a close-up follow-up program.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report a case of rectal adenocarcinoma in a 9-year-old boy, which took the form of a second malignant neoplasm following treatment for an early childhood malignancy.
  • The abdominal complaints were for a long time interpreted as an infectious disease.
  • At the time of diagnosis of the rectal carcinoma, the tumor had already progressed to the stage of metastatic disease.
  • As survival for childhood tumors improves, rare second malignant neoplasms will become increasingly common in children and adolescents.
  • This phenomenon emphasizes the need for continued clinical surveillance of patients who have been treated with chemotherapy or irradiation for childhood tumors.
  • The increased risk of second malignant neoplasms and an early onset of adult-type tumors has to be considered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The time, size and speed of tumor growth were recorded.
  • RT-PCR and Western-blot were used to detect the expression of HPA mRNA and protein in the subcutaneous tumors of the two groups.
  • Immunohistochemical staining was used to detect microvessel density (MVD) in the subcutaneous tumors of the two groups.
  • Cells of the subcutaneous transplanted tumors of the two groups were separately injected into the peritoneal cavity of nude mice, 6 mice each.
  • The growth of metastatic tumors in nude mice was observed.
  • RESULTS: Human gastric carcinoma SGC-7901 cells and SGC-7901-HPA(-) cells were subcutaneously inoculated in nude mice, and tumors appeared at 4 days and 7 days after inoculation, respectively.
  • The expressions of HPA mRNA and protein of the subcutaneously transplanted SGC-7901-HPA(-) tumor were decreased.
  • Four voluminous metastatic tumors caused by SGC-7901 cells occurred in 3 mice in the liver, right kidney, omentum and intestine.
  • Two smaller abdominal metastatic tumors of SGC-7901-HPA(-) cells were found in the liver and right kidney.
  • CONCLUSION: Silencing HPA can inhibit the tumor growth, angiogenesis and metastasis of human gastric cancer in nude mice.

  • Solid pseudopapillary tumors are rare pancreatic neoplasms of uncertain pathogenesis that rarely metastasize and usually occur in young women.
  • We describe the clinical, imaging, and cytopathological features of solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas.
  • Cases 1, 2, and 3 presented with abdominal wall abscess, multiple endocrine neoplasia, and solid/cystic mass in the pancreatic head, respectively, and computed tomography of abdomen revealed solid/cystic masses with heterogeneous enhancement in body, tail and head of the pancreas, respectively.
  • Tumor cells had bland nuclear features with grooves, cytoplasmic periodic acid Schiff-positive hyaline globules, and associated myxoid/stromal fragments.
  • Case 2 proved metastatic disease to adrenal gland and no follow-up was available.
  • In the setting of typical clinical and imaging findings, an accurate preoperative diagnosis of pancreatic solid pseudopapillary tumor can be established by aspiration cytology and immunochemistry with or without concomitant core biopsy, on the basis of which clinicians decide treatment.
  • This tumor can behave in a malignant fashion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The symptom index was considered positive when pelvic or abdominal pain or bloating or feeling full was reported at least daily for at least 1 week, with an onset of less than 12 months before diagnosis or a reference date (for control subjects).
  • The estimated positive predictive value of the symptom index or symptoms meeting the consensus criteria was 0.6%-1.1% overall and less than 0.5% for early-stage disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Use of symptoms to trigger medical evaluation for ovarian cancer is likely to result in diagnosis of the disease in only one of 100 women in the general population with such symptoms.

  • Other tumor surveys, including CA125, showed negative findings.
  • Both patients had exploratory laparotomy and complete excision of the umbilical tumor.
  • In addition to tumor marker CA125, a careful and thorough physical examination, assisted by modern imaging evaluation, is the best method for detecting early recurrence in patients with previously treated ovarian cancer.
  • Although an umbilical metastasis usually indicates advanced disease with disseminating peritoneal spread, it does not always imply inoperable or incurable disease.

  • [Title] Comparison of EUS-guided FNA and Trucut biopsy for diagnosing and staging abdominal and mediastinal neoplasms.
  • The objective of this study was to evaluate endoscopic ultrasound Trucut biopsy (TCB) specimens and compare these findings to fine needle aspiration (FNA) specimens for the diagnosis of neoplasia.
  • Specimens were categorized as nondiagnostic, negative, suspicious for stromal neoplasm, suspicious for malignancy, positive for stromal neoplasm, or positive for malignancy.
  • The final diagnoses comprised malignancy (n = 55), stromal neoplasm (n = 19), and benign findings (n = 12).
  • The combination of FNA and TCB results combined were significantly (P < 0.001) more sensitive that FNA alone for the detection of both malignancy (78% vs. 55%) and stromal neoplasia (79% vs. 19%) without a significant change in overall specificity (92% vs. 100%, P = 1.00).
  • The results of this study suggest that TCB is a useful adjunctive technique when used in tandem with FNA for malignancy and stromal neoplasia detection.

  • [Title] Incidence of abdominal wall metastasis complicating PEG tube placement in untreated head and neck cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Abdominal wall metastasis after PEG tube placement has been reported in patients with head and neck cancer.
  • OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of the incidence of abdominal wall metastasis as a complication of PEG tube placement in patients with head and neck cancer.
  • RESULTS: Of the 304 patients with head and neck cancer, 218 had active disease with a viable tumor in the oropharynx or hypopharynx at the time of PEG placement.
  • Two of these patients, both with active disease (0.92%), developed a PEG site metastasis.
  • CONCLUSION: There is a small but definite risk for tumor implantation in the gastrostomy site when using the pull technique in patients with active head and neck cancer.
  • Use of other percutaneous techniques that do not involve traversing the hypopharynx with the catheter may help to prevent tumor translocation.
