  • [Title] Pathways of abdominal tumour spread: the role of the subperitoneal space.
  • This space is formed by the subserosal areolar tissue that lines the inner surfaces of the peritoneum and the musculature of the abdomen and pelvis.
  • The subperitoneal space extends into the peritoneal cavity and is invested between the layers of the mesenteries and ligaments that support and interconnect the abdominal and pelvic organs.
  • As such, it provides one large continuous space in which infectious, neoplastic, inflammatory, and hemorrhagic disease may spread in many directions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report the clinical, radiographic and pathological findings of polyorchidism and a right-sided abdominal seminoma found in a 28-year-old man who presented with cryptorchidism in childhood and who later underwent an orchiectomy for a left-sided seminoma.
  • Pathological analysis of the abdominal tumour revealed the existence of a classic seminoma bordered by a rim of non-tumour tissue and remnants of epididymis.
  • We propose that patients who present with cryptorchidism be assessed for polyorchidism as this might be the source of additional primary tumours.

  • [Title] The post-surgical inflammatory response provokes enhanced tumour recurrence: a crucial role for neutrophils.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Peritoneal trauma activates a cascade of peritoneal defence mechanisms responsible for postoperative intra-abdominal tumour recurrence.
  • After peritoneal trauma, inflammatory cells and soluble factors are present in the abdominal cavity and can be captured in lavage fluids.
  • The present study evaluated which component enhances intra-abdominal tumour recurrence.
  • Furthermore, we evaluated which inflammatory cells are present and studied the influence of anti-neutrophil serum (ANS) on peritoneal tumour recurrence.
  • RESULTS: Intraperitoneal injection of naïve recipients with inflammatory cells or supernatant resulted in significant tumour recurrence.
  • Severe peritoneal trauma provoked significant intra-abdominal neutrophil influx which could be prevented by ANS.
  • Treatment with one dose did not affect blood cell counts and significantly reduced tumour recurrence.
  • Treatment with three doses of ANS decreased blood lymphocytes, monocytes, and neutrophils and induced tumour load.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Neutrophils play a crucial role in postoperative adhesion and growth of spilled tumour cells after surgical peritoneal trauma.
  • Prevention of peritoneal neutrophil influx reduces local tumour recurrence.

  • [Title] Are all stage III Wilms tumors the same? Data from the Associazione Italiana Ematologia Oncologia Pediatrica (AIEOP).
  • : 10030 Background: Criteria to classifying Wilms tumor (WT) as stage III are much heterogeneous, including factors referring both to tumor biology and surgical skills.
  • Main therapy differences across the trials were the timing of abdominal radiotherapy (RT) (anticipated to 2<sup>nd</sup> week from nephrectomy) and doxorubicin cumulative dose reduction from 360 mg/m<sup>2</sup> to 240 in TW2003.
  • Reasons for stage III as follows: lymph nodes (LN) 40 cases (alone 28 cases, combined with other factors 12); cava vein tumor thrombus 7, peritoneum involvement 8, post-operative gross or microscopic tumor remains 24, pre-operative rupture 9, surgical rupture 17.
  • For 29 patients (27%) information on regional LN were missing.
  • Adjuvant therapy consisted of 8-months vincristine/dactinomycin/doxorubicin + flank 1440 cGy RT (whole abdominal 15 Gy in case of diffuse peritoneal contamination).
  • Overall 16 tumor failure occurred (2 in anaplastic tumors): abdominal relapse 8 (combined to other extra-abdominal site 3), lung 5, tumor progression 2, metacronous tumor 1.
  • Overall, RFS was 75% ±7 in patients with at least LN involvement compared to 89% ±4 in patients classified as stage III for the remaining criteria, including those without LN sampling (Logrank p.09).
  • 1440 cGy flank RT warranted satisfactory local tumor control.
  • The worse outcome reported in LN-positive patients deserves further attention.

  • [Title] Local peritonectomy highly attracts free floating intraperitoneal colorectal tumour cells in a rat model.
  • Tumour recurrence may occur early after surgery.
  • One potential mechanism is the ability of peritoneal lesions to attract tumour cells.
  • METHODS: In Wag-Rija rats, the parietal peritoneum was resected on a defined area, a corresponding control area was marked in the same rat and colorectal tumour cells (CC531) were applied into the abdomen after surgery.
  • Tissue was harvested 6 or 9 days after surgery to evaluate intra-abdominal tumour growth.
  • Additionally tumour cells were applied 2 weeks after peritoneal resection to investigate tumour growth in a healed area of peritonectomy.
  • Specimens were evaluated for macroscopic tumour spread, weight of the abdominal wall and maximal tumour thickness.
  • RESULTS: Macroscopic tumour spread, weight of the abdominal wall and maximal tumour thickness were significantly increased within the area of peritonectomy after both 6 and 9 days compared to the control area.
  • However, only macroscopic tumour expansion was significantly increased in the healed area of peritonectomy.
  • CONCLUSION: Peritoneal defects may play an important role in the pathogenesis of tumour implantation and might have some impact on tumour recurrence.

  • At the age of 11, the girl presented with a huge abdominal mass.
  • Chemotherapy and low-dose radiotherapy succeeded in shrinking the tumour mass, making it operable.
  • Subsequently, she developed a painless abdominal tumour.
  • CONCLUSION: Because we experienced favourable results with laparoscopic biopsy in our patients, we are of the opinion that laparoscopy-assisted biopsies are well suited for the management of intra-abdominal tumours in systemic malignant disease.

  • Juvenile granulosa cell tumours (JGCT) represent a rare malignancy in childhood and their laparoscopic resection has not been advocated yet.
  • We report on a 6-year-old girl with signs of precocious pseudo-puberty and an abdominal tumour.
  • Work-up revealed premature thelarche, vaginal discharge, elevated estrogen levels, and a solid tumour in the lower pelvis (6 x 4 x 3 cm in MRI).
  • The girl underwent laparoscopy (3 ports, 5-mm instruments), during which a non-invasive, mobile tumour of the left ovary was found.
  • Within 3 months postoperatively the girl's signs of precocious puberty had resolved and at present, after a follow-up of more than 3 years, there is no evidence of tumour recurrence.
  • Minimally invasive surgery of solid ovarian tumours in children remains controversial.

  • Accurate, rapid, and noninvasive health assessments are required to establish more appropriate endpoints in mouse cancer models where tumor size is not easily measured.
  • We evaluated potential endpoints in mice with experimentally induced peritoneal lymphoma, an abdominal tumor model, by comparing body weight, body condition, and behavior with those of a control group of mice not developing lymphoma.
  • Our hypothesis was that body weight would increase or plateau, whereas body condition and behavioral scores would decrease, as disease progressed.
  • Our results support the use of body condition and behavioral scoring as adjunctive assessment methods for mice involved in abdominal lymphoma tumor studies in which health may decline despite an increase or plateau in body weight.

  • [Title] Surgical complications in abdominal tumor surgery in children. Experiences at a single oncological center.
  • INTRODUCTION: Surgical complications after tumor operations are frequent in children, with rates of up to 30% cited in the literature.
  • In a retrospective analysis, we evaluated the complications associated with tumor surgery.
  • The distribution of the various tumors, the type of surgery, and complications were evaluated.
  • RESULTS: A total of 145 operations for abdominal tumors were performed in 123 patients.
  • The three most common diseases were neuroblastoma (36%), nephroblastoma (26%), and ovarian tumor (19%).
  • In 68% of patients complete resection and in 19% of cases partial resection of the tumor was carried out; open biopsy was performed in 13%.
  • A significant increase in the risk of complications could be seen with an increase in SRFs (p=0.0267) and with disease stages 2 and 3 (p=0.016).
  • Tumor reduction surgery was also associated with an increase in complications (p=0.086).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In summary, tumor surgery is associated with considerable risks in children.

  • [Title] Burkitt lymphoma: residual abdominal tumor volume after induction therapy correlates with outcome.
  • Staging investigations in the Malawi 2003 BL protocol included abdominal ultrasonography.
  • This sometimes demonstrated tumor that was not palpable.
  • Patients with no palpable tumor following induction with three courses of cyclophosphamide were considered to be in remission, although residual intraabdominal tumor was documented in some by chance.
  • We repeated ultrasonography on day 29 on 22 new patients with non-palpable abdominal BL following induction.
  • The relapse rate after 1 year correlated with the largest residual tumor volume, and was 17% for tumors 0-35 ml, and 75% for tumors > or = 35 ml in volume.

  • BACKGROUND: Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare, primarily intra-abdominal tumor that has a poor outcome with current therapies.
  • PROCEDURE: We retrospectively reviewed patient characteristics, presenting symptoms, tumor pathology, treatment, and outcome of 11 pediatric patients with DSRCT at our institution.
  • In eight (73%) patients, the primary tumor was abdominal or pelvic, and in one patient each, it was submental, mediastinal, and paratesticular.
  • Nine (82%) patients had metastatic disease.
  • All tumors showed polyphenotypic differentiation by immunohistochemistry.
  • The EWS-WT1 transcript was detected in six of seven tumors tested.
  • One tumor showed rhabdomyoblastic differentiation after therapy.
  • Two died of treatment-related toxicity, six died of disease.
  • Patients with localized extra-abdominal disease have a better prognosis, most likely due to increased feasibility of resection.

  • [Title] A case of gastrointestinal stromal tumor with spontaneous rupture in the greater omentum.
  • BACKGROUND: Although GIST generally occurs in the digestive tract, such as the stomach, and small and small intestine primarily, Omental GIST tumours are very rare.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 63-year-old male patient, who recognized an abdominal tumor 1 year before admission, had a slight expansion of the tumor, reduction of the body and malaise, was consulted to our hospital.
  • Abdominal CT and MRI revealed a cystic lesion of 26 cm in diameter with a clear boundary from immediately below the interseptum to the pelvic cavity, and imaged the septum and cystic wall.
  • We considered that the patient had a cystic tumor in the abdomen, of which the primary lesion was unknown, and scheduled surgery.
  • The patient unfortunately deteriorated with shock and sudden pain in the abdomen.
  • Wediagnosed tumor rapture, and emergency surgery was performed.
  • The tumor, weighing 3,600 g, was mostly cystic, and filled with sanguinous fluid and clot.
  • Histologically, the tumor was composed of spindle cells, and was positive for c-KIT (CD117), slightly positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin (SMA), and S-100 protein positive.
  • Based on these findings, the tumor was diagnosed as GIST primarily occurring in the greater omentum.

  • We report a case of a 48-year-old Indian male who presented with swelling and firmness in his left upper part of the abdomen of one month duration with anorexia and weight loss.
  • Initial examination revealed an intra abdominal mass of around 16.8x11.0x24.5cm with minimal left sided pleural effusion.
  • A biopsy from the mass confirmed the diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GISTs) as supported by immmunohistochemistry results which showed strong positivity for c-kit while stains for smooth muscle actin, desmin, myoglobin, S100 Protein and cytokerstin remained negative.
  • The patient was not suitable for surgical intervention in view of advanced tumor, and Imatinib Mesylate 400mg daily was started with the aim of making the tumor operable.
  • It then resulted in gradual tumor regression, following which the patient underwent successful tumor resection.
  • Post surgical resection patient had no radiological evidence of intra abdominal tumor but mild left sided pleural effusion with left lower lobe atelectasis.

  • The liposarcoma is a malignant tumour of the adipose tissue that arises from the primitive mesenchymal cells.
  • These neoplasms have been usually found in the soft tissues of limbs, trunk, mediastinum, retroperitoneum and occasionally in the spermatic cord.
  • The clinical aspect is frequently a complaint of scrotal or inguinal painless mass, mimicking to an inguinal hernia and the diagnosis of tumor is performed mainly during surgery, as in our patient.
  • In the case of a firm not reducible painless inguinal mass without signs and symptoms of bowel obstruction, an abdominal tumor with inguinal or scrotal extension should be suspected and preoperatively excluded.

  • [Transliterated title] Factores de sobrevida en 152 pacientes con tumores estromales gastrointestinales.
  • INTRODUCTION: The gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is the designation for a specific type of mesenchymal tumor of the digestive tract that is origin in the interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) or its precursor multipotentials, its presentation is rare and therefore its best knowledge must affect a proper diagnosis and treatment.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the clinical characteristics and to identify factors influencing survival of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor.
  • The study has been performed in 152 patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor who were treated at the National Institute of Neoplastic Diseases (INEN), Lima, Peru, from January 1999 through December 2009.
  • The initial presentation was with localized disease to 79 patients (52%) and primary metastases in 73 patients (48%), with an average time of disease 14 months.
  • The prevalence of GIST tumor in the different organs was as follows: stomach with 77 patients (50.65%), jejunum with 21 patients (13.82%), retroperitoneum with 17 patients (11.18%), duodenum 11 patients (7.24%), colon 11 patients (7.24%), ileum 8 patients (5.26%),pancreas, 3 patients (1.97%), rectum, 3 patients (1.97%) and esophagus with 1 patient (0.66%).
  • The most common symptoms of GIST tumors in general were gastrointestinal bleeding, abdominal tumor and abdominal pain.
  • The tumor size greater than 10 centimeters was found in 92 patients (60.51%), 39 patients had size between 5 and 10 centimeters (25.65%) and 20 patients had lesions smaller than 5 centimeters (13.15%).
  • Retroperitoneal GIST tumors had an expression of CD117 of 92.86% and CD34 of 60%, and GIST tumors of the pancreas had an expression of CD117 of 100% and CD34 of 100%.
  • Of the 152 patients, 93 had complete resection of the disease, 28 had partial resection, 24 were unresectable and 07 did not undergo surgery, the more aggressive behavior was observed in ileum, 03 patients were unresectable, 02 patients had partial resection and only 02 could be completely resected, the rest of the series in general, for each location, the GIST tumors completely resected outscored the unresectable and partially resected.
  • The survival of patients under and over 50 expressed a p = 0.08, cumulative survival rates by tumor size expressed p = 0.56, cumulative survival rates for stomach and intestinal location shows a p = 0.056.
  • Multivariate analysis showed that the most significant factor for disease progression was the primary metastases with p = 0.007, and that survival was directly related to complete resection of the disease which is expressed with p <0.0001.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The most important prognostic factor of survival for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) is the complete resection of the disease.
  • The factor that is associated with progression of the disease is the presence of metastases.
  • In our series of 152 patients, tumor locations tend to relate better survival in gastric GIST that in intestinal GIST.
  • Differentiated tumor size in three size categories expressed no more related to survival.
  • The low mitotic index associated with metastasis, not reflected a good prognosis of disease.

  • [Title] Insufficient ability of omental milky spots to prevent peritoneal tumor outgrowth supports omentectomy in minimal residual disease.
  • BACKGROUND: The greater omentum is frequently involved in the course of gastrointestinal and ovarian tumors.
  • Paradoxically, many immune cells, such as macrophages that accumulate in so-called milky spots, reside within the omentum and are cytotoxic against tumor cells ex vivo.
  • Consequently, omental macrophages might play an important role in killing tumor cells, and may hereby prevent development into local peritoneal recurrences.
  • In the present study, we therefore evaluated the role of the omentum and the clinical relevance of omentectomy in minimal residual disease (MRD).
  • METHODS: Tumor cell dissemination patterns on the omentum in a rat model were examined using DiI-labelled CC531s tumor cells.
  • Additionally, intra peritoneal (i.p.) tumor load was investigated in rats that underwent omentectomy or sham laparotomy followed by i.p. injection of CC531s cells on day 21, which represented MRD.
  • RESULTS: At 4 h post injection, tumor cells predominantly adhered on milky spots.
  • Number of cells thereafter declined rapidly suggesting initial tumor killing functions in these specific immune aggregates.
  • Despite initial reduction observed in milky spots, numbers of tumor cells however increased at fatty tissue stripes that border the omentum.
  • This indicated proliferation at these locations, which corresponded to macroscopic observations of the omenta on day 21 after tumor cell injection.
  • Omentectomy resulted in reduced intra-abdominal tumor load, which was completely attributable to the absence of the omentum, as tumor development did not differ on other sites.
  • Even in the MRD group microscopic clusters of tumor cells located in the omentum eventually developed into macroscopic nodules.
  • CONCLUSION: Since the ability of omental milky spots is, even in MRD, insufficient to prevent intra abdominal tumor outgrowth, omentectomy, which reduces tumor load, is recommended in surgical treatment of intra abdominal tumors that are prone to disseminate intraperitoneally.

  • Visual exploration of the abdominal cavity in extended diagnostic laparoscopy (EDL), including surgical dissection of areas which are primarily inaccessible, biopsy retrieval, and laparoscopic ultrasound, is superior in the diagnostic workup of early peritoneal carcinomatosis and (small) liver metastases.
  • In esophageal carcinoma, pretherapeutic EDL is valuable in case of advanced adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus (AEG I according to Siewert), whereas the incidence of abdominal tumor manifestations in squamous cell carcinoma is too low to perform staging laparoscopy.

  • A 26-year-old woman with lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) was hospitalized for the surgical excision of a giant abdominal tumor of right kidney origin.
  • The pathological diagnosis of the tumor was conventional angiomyolipoma (AML).
  • After 8 months, 2 liver tumors appeared and grew rapidly.
  • The tumors were resected, and the pathological finding of these tumors was epithelioid AML.
  • Thereafter, metastatic multiple lung tumors appeared, and there was local recurrence of the liver tumors.
  • However, the drug did not inhibit the rapid growth of the tumor at all.
  • This finding suggests that sirolimus might not be effective against epithelioid AML, and in such cases, complete surgical resection should be the treatment of choice.

  • [Title] Clonality analysis of pediatric multiple tumors: two case reports and laboratory investigation.
  • We examined the possibility of using microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms as markers to detect the clonal origin of tumor cells found in the same patient.
  • We considered two children with complex tumor diseases: one with supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET) and a hepatic rhabdoid tumor and another with brain and abdominal rhabdoid tumors.
  • In the first patient we found an mtDNA cytosine insertion both in the normal tissue and in the primary tumor, whereas in the hepatic tumor we detected an insertion of 2 cytosine.
  • In the second child, who had a constitutional mutation of hSNF5/INI-1, we identified the same mtDNA pattern both in normal tissue and in the abdominal tumor but not in the brain tumor, which presented three different mtDNA polymorphisms.
  • Thus, we demonstrated the same clonal origin for tumors in the first patient and different clonal origins of the tumors in the second patient.
  • Molecular examination of clonality is a useful tool to obtain information about the origin of synchronous and/or metachronous tumors found in the same patient.

  • A 49-year-old man underwent partial resection of the jejunum for an abdominal tumor, which was histologically confirmed to be a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).
  • Immunohistochemistry revealed that the tumor cells were positive for c-kit, p52, and MIB-1.
  • He underwent resection of a total of 83 recurrent tumors over the next 36 months.
  • A computed tomography (CT) scan done a few months later showed multiple tumor recurrences.
  • The patient was started on imatinib mesylate 400 mg/day, and 3 months later, a CT image showed an increase in tumor size but a decrease in tumor density.
  • Subsequent CT scans showed a marked decrease in tumor size 3 months later and no evidence of tumor recurrence 9 and 12 months after the commencement of imatinib treatment.

  • The p16 tumor suppressor gene is inactivated by promoter region hypermethylation in many types of tumor.
  • Recent studies showed that aberrant methylation of the p16 gene is an early event in many tumors, especially in lung cancer, and may constitute a new biomarker for early detection and monitoring of prevention trials.
  • We detected tumor-associated aberrant hypermethylation of the p16 gene in plasma and tissue DNA from 153 specimens using a modified semi-nested methylation-specific PCR (MSP) combining plastic microchip electrophoresis or slab gel electrophoresis, respectively.
  • Specimens were from 79 lung cancer patients, 15 abdominal tumor patients, 30 positive controls and 30 negative controls.

  • Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare multisystemic disease of women of child-bearing age and affects mainly the lungs, promoting cystic destruction of lung parenchyma or leading to abdominal tumor formation (e.g., angiomyolipomas, lymphangioleiomyomas).
  • LAM can arise sporadically or in association with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), an autosomal inherited syndrome characterized by hamartoma-like tumor growth and pathologic features that are distinct from manifestations of pulmonary LAM.
  • Both of these genes are tumor suppressor genes encoding hamartin (TSC1) and tuberin (TSC2).
  • Sporadic LAM is correlated with a mutation in the TSC2 gene and tuberin appears to play a central role in the pathogenesis of the disease.
  • A TSC2 loss or mutation leads to disruption of the tuberin-hamartin heteromer and dysregulation of S6K1 activation leading to aberrant cell proliferation seen in LAM disease.
  • The extremely diverse clinical and radiologic features of the disease and the complex therapeutic approach are reviewed in detail.
  • As long as newer therapeutic agents do not change this picture, lung transplantation remains the last hope for patients with respiratory failure at the advanced stage of the disease.

  • [Title] Intra-abdominal tumor dissemination pattern and surgical outcome in 214 patients with primary ovarian cancer.
  • INTRODUCTION: We performed a systematic evaluation of tumor pattern and surgical outcome in 214 consecutive patients with primary ovarian cancer.
  • METHODS: Based on the surgical and histological reports we retrospectively analyzed tumor localizations, surgical and clinical outcome.
  • Cox-regression analysis was performed to identify independent predictors of complete tumor resection and mortality.
  • Upper abdominal tumor involvement was associated with a significantly higher rate of lymph node metastasis and a significantly lower rate of complete surgical tumor resection, when compared to patients with tumor limited to the lower abdomen.
  • Median overall survival was 56; 61 and 27 months for patients with tumor load in the upper, lower and whole abdomen respectively (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The intraoperative tumor dissemination pattern and the post-operative tumor residuals are decisive for the prognosis in primary ovarian cancer.

  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is the most common mesenchymal tumor of the gastrointestinal tract, but also occurs at a lower frequency in extra-gastrointestinal regions such as omentum, mesentery, retroperitoneum and undefined abdominal sites.
  • This tumor is called extragastrointestinal stromal tumor (EGIST).
  • EGIST is mostly diagnosed as a cystic mass, but rarely occurs as a disseminated abdominal tumor.
  • Abdominal CT showed diffuse peritoneal thickening with a large amount of ascites, but no definite mass lesion.
  • Laparoscopic biopsy was performed and histologic findings showed tumor composed of epithelioid cells.
  • In the results of immunohistochemical stains, the tumor showed positive reactivity with CD117 (c-kit), CD34, vimentin and actin, but negative reactivity with desmin and S-100 protein.

  • The animal was castrated, and histologic examination revealed a biphasic sex cord-stromal tumor, with one region resembling Sertoli-cell tumor and one region resembling granulosa-cell tumor, with extensive microfollicular pattern and many Call-Exner bodies.
  • Eight months after castration, the animal was euthanized on discovery of a caudal abdominal mass that displaced organs, was highly infiltrative, and extended into the paravertebral musculature with lysis of vertebral bone.
  • Histologic examination of the abdominal tumor showed multifocal formation of Call-Exner bodies in an otherwise highly dedifferentiated population.
  • Positive immunolabeling for alpha inhibin confirmed the sex cord-stromal origin of the abdominal and paravertebral tumor masses.
  • This case has similarities to malignant testicular granulosa-cell tumor of humans.

  • [Title] Identification of somatic APC mutations in recurrent desmoid tumors in a patient with familial adenomatous polyposis to determine actual recurrence of the original tumor or de novo occurrence.
  • A 25-year-old female with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) presented with an abdominal tumor just below the scar due to a colectomy performed 15 months previously.
  • This tumor (tumor A) measured 7 cm in diameter, was diagnosed as a desmoid tumor of the abdominal wall, and was excised.
  • Despite the subsequent administration of sulindac (300 mg daily for 1 year), a desmoid tumor recurred at the same site.
  • Excision was performed again when the tumor was 8 cm in diameter, and examination revealed it to consist of a large tumor (B) and a small tumor (C) that bulged out from tumor B.
  • Two somatic mutations were observed in tumor A: a TCAA deletion at codon 1068 and a deletion of a codon at bp 1192-2097.
  • In tumor B, a somatic mutation was found at codon 1041 changing CAA to TAA.
  • We could not detect any somatic mutations in tumor C.
  • We conclude that somatic mutation analysis of the APC gene can be used to identify whether a recurrent desmoid tumor in a patient with FAP is a new primary tumor or a recurrence from microscopic remnants of the original tumor.

  • [Title] Intraoperative spillage of favorable histology wilms tumor cells: influence of irradiation and chemotherapy regimens on abdominal recurrence. A report from the National Wilms Tumor Study Group.
  • PURPOSE: We undertook this study to determine (1) the frequency with which spilled tumor cells of favorable histology produced intra-abdominal disease in patients treated with differing chemotherapy regimens and abdominal radiation therapy (RT) and (2) the patterns of relapse and outcomes in such patients.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: The influence of RT dose (0, 10, and 20 Gy), RT fields (flank, whole abdomen), and chemotherapy with dactinomycin and vincristine (2 drugs) vs. added doxorubicin (three drugs) on intra-abdominal tumor recurrence rates was analyzed by logistic regression in 450 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Irradiation (10 Gy or 20 Gy) reduced abdominal tumor recurrence rates after tumor spillage.
  • Tumor spillage in Stage II patients reduced relapse-free survival and overall survival, but only the latter was of statistical significance.
  • These data provide a basis for assessing the risks vs. benefits when considering treatment for children with favorable histology Wilms tumor and surgical spillage.

  • 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.
