Abdominal wall lesions can be broadly divided into nontumorous and tumorous conditions. Nontumorous lesions include congenital lesion, abdominal wall hernia, inflammation and infection, vascular lesions, and miscellaneous conditions like hematoma. Tumorous lesions include benign and malignant neoplasms. Here, we report an unusual case of abdominal wall endometriosis mimicking metastases in a patient with breast carcinoma.

Sarcomatoid adenocarcinoma of ampulla of Vater is an extremely rare malignant neoplasm that displays both carcinomatous and sarcomatous component. A 58-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital under the suspicion of an ampulla of Vater cancer. Abdominal computed tomography and endoscopy demonstrated a bulging of ampulla and the biopsy specimen revealed an adenocarcinoma, well differentiated in the background of tubulovillous adenoma. So we performed the pylorus preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy. At postoperative biopsy, the tumor was composed of adenocarcinoma component and sarcomatoid component...

Pseudomyxoma pleuri is a rare condition and it mostly results from secondary involvement of an abdominal pathology. Massive pleural disease impedes cardiopulmonary functions and threatens life. We are reporting our experience about managing a middle-age lady with a known case of Pseudomyxoma peritonei, who presented to causality with progressive breathing difficulty in acute exacerbation and cardiopulmonary compromise.

We often encounter the postoperative recurrence of lung cancer. It is generally diagnosed based on the clinical course and the results of imaging studies, such as computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET). The organization diagnosis is often not done. We present the case of a patient who was treated for the postoperative recurrence of lung cancer that was later proven by biopsy to be a second lung cancer. It is possible that cases of a second cancer, like ours, are overlooked because they are incorrectly classified as postoperative recurrences of lung cancer based on the clinical course and imaging findings...

We describe an unusual presentation of papillary renal cell carcinoma in a 40-year old male where radiological evaluation revealed a Bosniak type 2 cyst (probably benign), and clinical signs as well as symptoms also suggested an infected cyst l. However, on histopathological examination, an intra cystic type 1 papillary renal cell carcinoma was diagnosed. This is an extremely rare presentation of papillary renal cell carcinoma because it usually present as a heterogenous mass. Hence, even the radiologically benign cyst should be evaluated and managed cautiously...

Ossifying fibroma is a benign osteogenic mesenchymal tumor that is classified in the fibro-osseous lesions. Fibro-osseous lesions contain minerals, blood vessels, and giant cells that have the same radiographic and pathologic features but have different clinical behaviors, and were replaced with the normal bone. These lesions include fibrous dysplasia, cemento-osseous dysplasia, and ossifying fibroma. Juvenile ossifying fibroma is a type of uncommon and has invasive behavior, high incidence and occurs in young men, especially in maxilla, and is different from the type of adult in age, location, and clinical behavior and microscopic view...

Isolated, metastatic hemangiopericytoma of liver is an extremely rare entity. We present a case of hemangiopericytoma of the liver, metastatic from a meningeal hemangiopericytoma, who presented 10 years after the surgical excision of the primary tumour and morphologically mimicked a hepatocellular carcinoma. We review the literature regarding this entity and discuss the difficulties in preoperative diagnosis and the need for a thorough preoperative evaluation.

Castleman's disease is a distinct form of lymph node hyperplasia. It commonly presents as a mediastinal mass and rarely as a solitary retroperitoneal mass. We narrate a case of Castleman's disease presenting as a right suprarenal mass emphasising the usefulness of robot-assisted retroperitoneoscopy in surgical management of retroperitoneal masses in close relation to vital structures.

Epithelioid sarcoma first described by Enzinger (Cancer 26:1029-41, 1970) is a rare soft-tissue sarcoma typically presenting as a subcutaneous or deep dermal mass in distal portions of the extremities of adolescents and young adults. They are frequently mistaken for ulcers, abscesses, or infected warts that fail medical management. Patients often develop multiple local recurrences of long duration, with subsequent metastases in 30 to 50% of cases (Chase and Enzinger (Am J Surg Pathol 9:241-63, 1985)). We here report a case of left thumb epithelioid sarcoma that presented as an ulcer and subsequently metastasized to forearm, arm, axillary lymph nodes, and lungs...

Immunomarker α-methylacyl-coenzyme A racemase (AMACR), a protein involved in the metabolism of branched chain fatty acids was initially recognized in the evaluation of prostate cancer. AMACR is also a fairly sensitive marker for papillary renal cell carcinoma. Papillary adenoma associated with papillary renal cell carcinoma are AMACR positive and both represent a continuum of the same biological process. However, the papillary adenomas associated with end-kidney and/or acquired cystic disease are AMACR negative...

Robotic surgery has been successfully used for many surgical indications in head and neck surgery. Robotic thyroidectomy is getting accepted worldwide, but the majority of the literature is from South Korea. The purpose of the paper is to review and give a personal perspective on how a robotic thyroidectomy program was initiated in a tertiary care academic medical institution in India. Advantages of robotic approaches are the three-dimensional visualization, precision, dexterity, and surgeon ergonomics. Cost is an important concern...

The overall survivorship in patients with appendicular osteosarcoma has increased in the past few decades. However, controversies and questions about performing an amputation or a limb salvage procedure still remain. Using three peer-reviewed library databases, a systematic review of the literature was performed to evaluate all studies that have evaluated the outcomes of appendicular osteosarcoma, either with limb salvage or amputation. The mean 5-year overall survivorship was 62% for salvage and 58% for amputation ( p  > 0...

Prostate cancer is the most common solid organ malignancy in men in the USA with an annual incidence of 105 and an annual mortality rate of 19 per 100,000 people. With the advent of PSA screening, the majority of prostate cancer diagnosed is organ confined. Recent studies including the SPCG-4 and PIVOT trials have demonstrated a survival benefit for those undergoing active treatment for localized prostate cancer. The foremost surgical option has been radical prostatectomy (RP). The gold standard has been open radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP); however, minimally invasive approaches including laparoscopic and robotic approaches are commonplace and increasing in popularity...

Currently, pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is considered a common and feasibly performed surgery for periampullary tumours, but it is still a high-risk surgical procedure with potential morbidity and mortality rates. Previously, it was emphasised for the need of high-volume centres to perform specialised surgery such as PD. The authors have made an attempt to know the relation between low-volume centre and outcomes of PD. The study was conducted in a Tier-II city referral hospital located in Karnataka, India. A total of 37 patients with suspected periampullary neoplasms underwent surgical exploration with curative intent over a period of 4 years, i...
