  • [Title] [Squamous cell carcinoma of the celiac area. Report of a case and review of the literature].
  • Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the pancreas or of the stomach is rare and represents a controversial entity.
  • The unusual case of a 50-year-old woman with a large squamous cell carcinoma located in the celiac area and involving liver, stomach and pancreas, is reported here.
  • The microscopic diagnosis was well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma without glandular structure.
  • Following the procedure, search for another possible primary lesion (esophagus, anus, colon, lung, head and neck, pelvic floor) was performed.
  • In this context, final diagnosis was primary gastric or pancreatic squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Subsequent radiation combined with chemotherapy was instituted, allowing complete remission.
  • Pathogenesis of gastric as well as pancreatic primary squamous cell carcinoma remains obscure and controversial.

  • [Title] Primary small cell carcinoma of esophagus: report of 9 cases and review of literature.
  • AIM: To analyze the clinical manifestations, pathological features and treatment of primary small cell carcinoma (SCC) of the esophagus and to review the literature on this entity.
  • METHODS: The records of 9 patients with primary esophageal small cell carcinoma were examined and the demographic data, presenting symptoms, methods of tumor diagnosis, and types of treatment given, response to treatment, pathologic findings, and clinical outcome were reviewed.
  • They underwent radical resection, regional lymph node clearance and esophageal-stomach anastomosis in thorax or at neck.
  • Three of the nine resected specimens showed foci of squamous cell carcinoma in situ.
  • They received adjuvant systemic chemotherapy and local radiation therapy after discharge.
  • During follow-up, three patients developed multiple liver, brain, lung and bone metastases and died between 5 and 18 mo after the diagnosis.
  • Three patients developed widespread metastasis disease and died between 18 and 37 mo after the diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Primary small cell carcinoma of the esophagus is a rare but very malignant tumor.
  • Radical resection combined with chemotherapy and radiotherapy is helpful in limited stage cases.

  • Computed tomography (CT) scans indicated thickened esophageal wall at the lower thoracic esophagus and a swollen lymph node attached to the lesser curvature of the stomach.
  • Histological analysis of the biopsy specimen revealed poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma and the diagnosis was of advanced esophageal cancer.
  • A combination of chemotherapy (nedaplatin and 5-fluorouracil) and radiotherapy was initiated.
  • After radiotherapy (20 Gy), CT scans revealed that the swollen lymph node penetrated the gastric wall resulting in a gastro-lymphatic fistula.
  • Although gastrostomy and intestinal fistula repair were performed for gastric decompression and tube feeding, respectively, the patient's general status did not improve and he died two months after interruption of his chemoradiotherapy.

  • [Title] Comparison of an inflammation-based prognostic score (GPS) with performance status (ECOG-ps) in patients receiving palliative chemotherapy for gastroesophageal cancer.
  • AIM: The aim of the present study was to compare an inflammation-based prognostic score (Glasgow Prognostic Score, GPS) with performance status (ECOG-ps) in patients receiving platinum-based chemotherapy for palliation of gastroesophageal cancer.
  • METHODS: Sixty-five patients presenting with gastroesophageal carcinoma to the Royal Infirmary, Glasgow between January 1999 and December 2005 and who received palliative chemotherapy or chemo-radiotherapy were studied.
  • ECOG-ps, C-reactive protein, and albumin were recorded at diagnosis.
  • In addition, in comparison with patients with GPS of 0, those patients with a GPS of 1 or 2 required more frequent chemotherapy dose reduction (P < 0.05), were less likely to exhibit a clinical response to treatment (P < 0.05), and had shorter survival (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: The presence of a systemic inflammatory response, as evidenced by the GPS, appears to be superior to the subjective assessment of performance status (ECOG-ps) in predicting the response to platinum-based chemotherapy in patients with advanced gastroesophageal cancer.

  • [Title] [Histological complete response in a case of primary squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach treated by chemotherapy with docetaxel and cisplatin plus 5-fluorouracil].
  • Endoscopic examination revealed a type 2 advanced tumor in the mid body and an elevated lesion in the upper body of the stomach.
  • Biopsy specimens from both lesions were diagnosed histologically as squamous cell carcinoma.
  • DCF combination therapy (docetaxel 75 mg/m2 day 1, CDDP 75 mg/m2 day 1, 5-FU 750 mg/m2 day 1-5) was administered.
  • After 3 courses of chemotherapy, endoscopic examination and abdominal CT findings showed remarkable reduction of the primary tumor and the lymph node metastasis, indicating a partial response (PR) to the chemotherapy.
  • The pathological specimens showed no cancer cells in the gastric wall and lymph nodes, so the histological effect was judged as Grade 3.
  • This case suggested that DCF combination chemotherapy may prove useful to treat patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Therapeutic strategy for postoperative liver metastasis from esophageal squamous cell carcinoma; clinical efficacy of and problem with hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Despite recent advances in diagnosis and treatment, the prognosis for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is unsatisfactory.
  • Liver recurrence is frequent in postoperative esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients, and the prognosis for patients with liver metastasis is poor.
  • This report concerns the therapeutic strategy, especially the efficacy of and the problem with hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy for liver metastasis from esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
  • All patients underwent esophagectomy and reconstruction with stomach roll without preoperative chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.
  • For 6 patients, preceding systemic chemotherapy was performed before hepatic arterial infusion.
  • Hepatic arterial infusion was effective for responders to preceding systemic chemotherapy, but ineffective for non-responders.
  • Two patients developed stomach roll ulcers and one experienced the catheter thrombosis, but there were no instances of severe toxicity or complications.
  • CONCLUSIONS: For postoperative liver recurrence of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, hepatic arterial infusion is the favorable therapy in terms of efficacy and low-grade toxicity, but has a risk of causing severe complications.
  • We consider it suitable that when preceding systemic chemotherapy is performed before hepatic arterial infusion, hepatic arterial infusion is performed in responders to preceding systemic chemotherapy, and that hepatic arterial infusion is continued as long as possible.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Diagnosis and management of neck metastases from an unknown primary.
  • Neck lymph node metastases from occult primary constitute about 5%-10% of all patients with carcinoma of unknown primary site.
  • Diagnostic procedures include a careful clinical evaluation and a fiberoptic endoscopic examination of the head and neck mucosa, biopsies from all suspicious sites or blindly from the sites of possible origin of the primary, computerized tomography scan, and magnetic resonance.
  • The most frequent histological finding is Squamous Cell Carcinoma, particularly when the upper neck is involved.
  • Thoracic, and abdominal primaries (especially from lung, oesophagus, stomach, ovary or pancreas) should be sought in the case of adenocarcinoma and involvement of the lower neck.
  • Positron emission tomography with fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose allows detection of primary tumour in about 25% of cases, but this procedure is still considered investigational.
  • Therapeutic approaches include surgery (neck dissection), with or without post-operative radiotherapy, radiotherapy alone and radiotherapy followed by surgery as reported by several guide-lines.
  • The role of other methods, such as chemotherapy and hyperthermia, remains to be determined.

  • [Title] Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach. Report of a case and review of literature.
  • Primary squamous cell carcinomas of the stomach represent a rare entity.
  • We report the case of a 61-year-old patient who presented with anemia and weight loss due to a large tumor of the gastric wall with adhesion to the pancreatic tail.
  • After radical regional "en bloc" gastrectomy, splenectomy and pancreatic tail resection, the diagnosis of primary gastric squamous cell carcinoma could be confirmed, since the esophageal wall and the pancreatic tail were not infiltrated and extragastric squamous cell primaries could be excluded.
  • After postoperative irradiation of the upper abdominal area, the patient developed a single liver metastasis in the left hepatic lobe that decreased with polychemotherapy.
  • However, adjuvant radio and chemotherapy have resulted in survival rates of more than 3 years in reported cases, as in the present case.
  • Five years after the diagnosis was established the patient is free of recurrence and without any complaint.
  • Pathophysiological features, therapy and outcome are discussed by reviewing the cases reported in world literature.

  • Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) originating from the stomach is a relatively rare entity.
  • Fewer than 100 cases of primary SCC of the stomach have been presented in the literature.
  • Due to the advanced stage at the time of diagnosis in most of these cases, the prognosis is generally poor.
  • In the case presented here, dissemination of the tumor to the transverse colon, gallbladder and omentum was present at diagnosis.
  • Despite the tumor's advanced stage, complete remission was achieved after six courses of adjuvant chemotherapy with 5-flourouracil and cisplatin.

  • [Title] Anaplastic carcinoma of the pancreas with squamous features: report of a case and immunohistochemical study.
  • We herein present our experience with a case of anaplastic carcinoma of the pancreas with squamous features in order that allowed us to delineate the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features of this rare entity.
  • Histopathologically, anaplastic tumor cells showed focal ductal and squamous features infiltrated into pancreatic parenchyma, extrapancreatic fatty tissue, and stomach.
  • Although immunoreactivity against p53 was negative, strong positive immunostaining for proliferating cell nuclear antigen and interleukin-1 receptor type I (IL-1RI) was observed in a the majority of tumor cells, while the alpha6 integrin subunit was predominantly strong expressed in the adenocarcinomatous lesion.
  • The patient's postoperative course was uneventful and he was treated with a chemotherapy consisting of gemcitabine.
  • After discharging from the hospital, he had subsequently been observed as an outpatient and same chemotherapy was followed by weekly.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our immunohistochemical studies suggested that the prognosis of the case with anaplastic carcinoma presented here would be poor, due to the strong expression of integrins and IL-1RI.

  • [Title] [A case of gastric cancer in the stomach wall used for mediastinal reconstruction after esophagectomy in which surgery was abandoned due to advanced age and complications but TS-1 was useful].
  • Gastric cancer, type 3, was diagnosed by endoscopy in the subtotal stomach used for posterior mediastinal reconstruction after resection of thoracic esophageal cancer.
  • Surgery was not considered to be feasible in this case because of cerebral infarction and decreased pulmonary functions; instead, the patient received TS-1 chemotherapy.
  • Drug administration was started at the dose of 100 mg/day, one level lower than the standard dose of TS-1.
  • Reduction in tumor size was noted endoscopically during the first course of treatment.
  • At the end of the 4th course of treatment, the ulcerous lesion was found to have disappeared almost completely, and only mild mural irregularity was noted.
  • The incidence of gastric cancer in the stomach tissue used for mediastinal reconstruction after esophagectomy has been reported to be 0.8%.
  • In many of these cases, the cancer is already advanced at the time of diagnosis, precluding surgical resection.
  • In this situation, chemotherapy with TS-1 is expected to be an effective method of treatment that can be administered at home in elderly patients with a variety of complications.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: There is no standard second-line therapy for patients with oesophagogastric cancer who progress following first-line chemotherapy for advanced disease or relapse following radical multi-modality therapy.
  • Patients rechallenged with PF +/- epirubicin >3 months after completing initial chemotherapy were eligible.
  • Primary endpoint was survival, calculated from day 1 of rechallenge treatment to date of death or last follow-up.
  • 298 patients progressed or relapsed >3 months after completing chemotherapy, of whom 106 patients were rechallenged with PF-based chemotherapy.
  • Median progression-free survival and overall survival were 5.1 and 10 months, respectively, from date of rechallenge for patients treated with initial radical intent and 3.9 and 6.6 months, respectively, in patients treated with palliative intent from diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Selected patients with oesophagogastric cancer who relapse or progress >3 months after initial treatment with PF +/- epirubicin may benefit from re-introduction of PF-based chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Positron emission tomography in gastric and esophageal cancer.
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Positron emission tomography using the positron emitting glucose analogue 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose has recently emerged as a promising metabolism-based whole-body imaging tool for cancer diagnosis and follow-up.
  • The review limits its scope to the recent advances of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in the clinical management of gastric and esophageal cancer.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: New studies have been reported on the use of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography to assess the early and late metabolic response of a gastroesophageal tumor to chemo(radiation) therapy.
  • The metabolic response as measured by serial 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography, performed before and during treatment or some weeks thereafter, can be used to predict the clinical and histopathologic response.
  • Moreover, the metabolic positron emission tomography response seems to be related to overall and disease-free survival.
  • SUMMARY: Gastroesophageal 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography could add significant diagnostic information to the different phases of patient management.
  • At initial diagnosis of esophageal cancer, positron emission tomography detects more distant lymph node and organ metastases compared with conventional diagnostics, allowing a more accurate selection of the most appropriate treatment.
  • Serial 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography performed before and during chemotherapy allows early identification of nonresponding tumors.
  • 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography performed after a treatment allows accurate assessment of the residual tumor load.
  • 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography allows accurate detection and restaging of recurrent disease.

  • [Title] Iliac crest biopsy versus rib segment resection for the detection of bone marrow isolated tumor cells from lung and esophageal cancer.
  • OBJECTIVE: The presence of isolated tumor cells in the bone marrow affects the prognosis of both esophageal cancer and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • Therefore, preoperative assessment of isolated tumor cells may be useful to plan multimodality treatment.
  • Rib segment resection at surgery provides adequate amounts of bone marrow for the detection of isolated tumor cells while bone marrow aspirate from the iliac crest does not.
  • The iliac crest biopsy according to the Jamshidi technique procures a core of tissue apt for histology and not simply for cytology.
  • The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of iliac crest biopsy versus rib segment resection in the diagnosis of isolated tumor cells in order to obtain a useful preoperative approach.
  • None had chemotherapy prior to evaluation.
  • Positive cytokeratin neoplastic cells were searched by immunohistochemistry on tissue sections from the iliac crest biopsies and by flow cytometry on cell suspensions from the rib segments.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that, if the diagnosis of bone marrow isolated tumor cells has clinical relevance, the preoperative assessment should be performed by rib segment resection or methods other than iliac crest aspirate or biopsy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Pathologically proven stomal metastases were located in the abdominal wall (PEG exit site) in 63%, in the gastric wall (PEG entrance site) in 7%, and in both walls in 30%.
  • Mean survival after diagnosis was only 4.3+/-3.8 months.
  • (b) squamous cell histology (in 98%, adenocarcinoma in 2%);.
  • (d) advanced pathologic stage (in 97%, early stage in 3%); and (e) large primary cancer size at diagnosis (mean diameter 4.2+/-2.3 cm).
  • These risk factors appeared to be quantitatively large (e.g., 98% of cases had squamous histology vs 50% expected rate, odds ratio 40.1, OR CI 6.31-246.4, P<0.0001).
  • Therapeutic risk factors for stomal metastases included: (a) endoscopic PEG placement (in 98%, surgical gastrostomy in 2%);.
  • (c) primary cancer untreated or known local recurrence after treatment before PEG (in 87%); and (d) time>or=3 months after PEG insertion (in 100%, <3 months in 0%; mean interval 7.8+/-5.2 months after PEG).
  • Four of the currently reported risk factors are novel (pathologic factors d,e; therapeutic factors a,d).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Strong risk factors for stomal metastases include: pharyngoesophageal primary cancer, squamous cell histology, less well-differentiated cancer, large size, and advanced cancer stage.
  • The risk may be reduced in patients with risk factors by radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or cancer surgery before PEG; by substituting the push-guidewire for the pull-string technique for PEG; and possibly by use of a sheath with the pull-string technique.

  • [Title] Clinical diagnosis of metastatic gastric tumors: clinicopathologic findings and prognosis of nine patients in a single cancer center.
  • The clinical features of metastatic gastric tumors (MGTs) have not been well documented.
  • Among 2579 patients with gastric tumors seen between 1992 and 2001, we studied 9 (0.3%) patients with MGT according to a prospective database.
  • The primary tumors included one each of squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus, signet-ring cell carcinoma of the breast, large-cell or small-cell carcinoma of the lung, renal cell carcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, squamous cell or epidermoid carcinoma of the uterus, and melanoma.
  • Although six patients underwent gastrectomy, macroscopic eradication of gastric metastatic disease was accomplished in only four, in whom a UICC R0 resection was possible in only two.
  • Five patients were treated by chemotherapy with no apparent survival benefit.
  • A median survival after MGT diagnosis was 170 days (range 16-892 days) for all cases, 384 days for those who underwent gastrectomy (n = 6), and 27 days for those without active treatment (n = 3) (p = 0.002).

  • [Title] [A case of synchronous esophageal and gastric cancer successfully treated by combination TS-1/CDDP therapy with irradiation].
  • We report a case of synchronous esophageal and gastric cancer in a patient with severe liver dysfunction who was treated successfully using TS-1/CDDP therapy combined with irradiation therapy.
  • Synchronous esophageal and gastric cancer were diagnosed by endoscopy and barium swallow.
  • The preoperative diagnosis was T3N0M0, Stage II esophageal cancer and T1N0M0, Stage I A gastric cancer, both of which were diagnosed to be resectable.
  • TS-1 (80 mg/day) and CDDP (3 mg/day) therapy was combined with irradiation, 60 Gy given in a T-pattern to the mediastinum.
  • The patient did not suffer any side-effects, and endoscopy performed 44 days after the start of treatment showed that the esophageal lesion was now only a scar.
  • Only a slight elevation of the esophagus was seen by endoscopy 219 days after the start of the therapy.
  • The patient is currently undergoing only TS-1 treatment as an outpatient and is under observation.
  • TS-1 and CDDP therapy combined with radiotherapy appears to be effective in treating thoracic esophageal cancer.
