The case of a 73-year-old woman affected by anal canal cancer with concomitant liver metastases is presented here. The patient was addressed to stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) on two hepatic secondary lesions after the first radiochemotherapy treatment of the primary tumor. A Tri-60-Co magnetic resonance hybrid radiotherapy unit was used for SBRT treatment delivery. Both liver lesions were not clearly visible on the setup magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) due to their limited dimensions (maximum diameter 13 mm); however, the presence of two cysts adjacent to the metastases allowed the use of an indirect target gating approach...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leakage (AL) is one of the most dreadful postoperative complications because it can result in increased morbidity and mortality as well as poorer long-term prognosis. Although most studies of AL limited their investigation time to a period of 30 days postoperatively, only a few studies have shown that AL can occur after that period. Here, we report four patients of rectal cancer with delayed AL following laparoscopic intersphincteric resection (ISR) and conduct a literature review on delayed AL...

Synchronous colorectal cancers refer to the simultaneous occurrence of multiple colorectal tumors in a single patient, excluding any metastases from other organs. At present, radical surgery is considered the standard curative treatment; however, individualized surgical strategies depend on tumor location, the depth of invasion and the general health of the patient. In the present study, the case of a 52-year-old man who presented with a 2-month history of abdominal pain that was accompanied by intermittent hematochezia and weight loss is reported...

Radiooncological therapies are an integral part of the multimodal oncological treatment concepts in general and abdominal surgery. These include therapeutic approaches with a curative intention such as the neoadjuvant (pre-operative) radiotherapy of locoregionally advanced and/or N+ oesophageal and rectal cancer, definitive combined chemoradiotherapy of locally advanced, unresectable oesophageal cancer or oesophageal tumour lesions of the upper third, definitive radiotherapy of anal cancer (sphincter sparing) and pre- or post-operative radiotherapy of soft tissue sarcoma on the one hand...

BACKGROUND: Colonic tumours are the third most common tumours in the Nigerian cancer registry after breast and cervical carcinoma. Tumours involving the distal rectum and anus are increasingly a significant portion of all colorectal and anal malignancies in Nigeria. The patients frequently present with advanced disease. Abdomino-Perineal resection (APR), is thus an essential modality of treatment alongside chemo-radiation. The aim of the study was to review the surgical outcomes of APR done for low rectal and anal malignancies in a resource poor setting in sub-Saharan Africa...

We experienced a rare case of intussusception due to sigmoid colon cancer during chemotherapy. A-62-year-old female was started on mFOLFOX6 due to sigmoid colon cancer and hepatic metastases(stage IV). After 2 courses, she had abdominal pain and bloody stool. Abdominal ultrasonography showed a target sign, and abdominal CT showed edema of the mucosa of the sigmoid colon and invagination. She was diagnosed with intussusception due to sigmoid colon cancer, and underwent a bloodless reduction. However, because it was unavailable, we performed an emergency operation...

This report describes a case of rectal cancer with endoscopically observable white nodules caused by distal intramural lymphatic spread. A 57-year-old female presented to our hospital with frequent diarrhea and hemorrhoids. Computed tomography showed bilateral ovarian masses and three hepatic tumors diagnosed as rectal cancer metastases, and also showed multiple lymph node involvement. The patient was preoperatively diagnosed with stage IV rectal cancer. Colonoscopy demonstrated that primary rectal cancer existed 15 cm from the anal verge and that there were multiple white small nodules on the anal side of the primary tumor extending to the dentate line...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Lapraoscopic era provided a new alternative for rectal cancer and synchronous liver metastases (RCLM). However, there is no established consensus for laparoscopy "first" for patients with RCLM, whose metastasis is confined to the liver. This study aimed to evaluate its indications for one-stage surgery in laparoscopy. METHODOLOGY: Sixteen patients with RCLM, who had undergone laparoscopic colorectal resection and simultaneous treatment for liver metastasis, were retrospectively reviewed...

Breast cancer usually metastasizes towards the lymph nodes, lung, bone, liver or brain; metastatic gastrointestinal involvement is rare and anal metastases are extremely rare. Necroscopic studies report a 6-18% incidence of extra-hepatic gastrointestinal metastases, and the most frequent sites of the GI tract involved are the stomach and the small intestine. We report a case with anal metastasis from breast cancer and a review of the associated literature.

We report a case of anal cancer in a 58-year-old woman who complained of narrow, bloody stools and anal pain. Physical examination revealed anal stenosis associated with a circular mass arising in the anal canal. Histological examination of biopsy specimens confirmed a diagnosis of moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Enhanced computed tomography revealed anal cancer invading the levator ani and the vagina, with lymph-node, multiple hepatic, and pulmonary metastases. The patient received two cycle of chemoradiotherapy with S-1 plus low-dose cisplatin with rest for 4 weeks, leading to complete response of the primary lesion and a partial response of the metastatic lesions...

A 77 year-old male presented a locally advanced small cell anal cancer and simultaneous hepatic and glandular deposits. Due to metastatic disease, chemotherapy with carboplatin and etoposide was the primary choice of treatment. Small cell cancer of the gastrointestinal tract exerts an aggressive clinical course with early metastases and a very poor prognosis. The diagnosis is based on careful histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry. Due to the aggressiveness of this tumor it is of great importance that the pathologist, the oncologist, and the surgeons are aware of this rare type of cancer...

We examined efficacy and safety of bevacizumab (BV)+modified FOLFOX6 (mFOLFOX6) regimen for unresectable colorectal cancer. We had 16 patients: liver metastases 8, lung metastases 4, local recurrences 2, and lymph node metastases 2, as for evaluable lesions. The response rate was 46.6%, and disease control rate was 86.6%. Hepatic metastatectomy was done in two cases after PR response. There was 1 infusion related reaction case, 1 tumor bleeding and 1 anal fistula as the adverse events. In conclusion, the BV+mFOLFOX6 is one of the effective and feasible regimens for unresectable colorectal cancer...

We report a case of inguinal lymphorrhea cured by Lipiodol lymphangiography. The patient was a 80-year-old female who underwent an abdomino-perineal resection with lateral pelvic lymph node dissection and inguinal lymph node extraction for anal canal cancer. Histologically, the tumor was a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma and considered to be stage IV (a2, n3 (+), P0, H3, M (-), cur C) in the Japanese classification of colorectal cancer. We recognized a lot of lymph node metastases in dissected lateral pelvic lymph node and inguinal lymph node...

We report on a patient with rectal malignant melanoma. The patient was a 40-year-old man who complained of anal bleeding. His grandmother had died of pancreatic cancer and his mother had been operated for rectal cancer. Physical examination revealed a hard mass at the 12 o'clock position, 2 cm from the anal verge. A colonoscopic examination revealed an irregular surface mass, approximately 4.0 cm in size, located on the anterior wall of the lower rectum. A biopsy of the rectal tumor showed the proliferation of epithelioid cells with pleomorphic features...

Introduction. Intra-Arterial Hepatic Chemotherapy (IAHC) based on floxuridine (FUdR) infusion is an effective treatment for hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer. A percutaneously implanted intra-arterial device may overcome the surgical stress of the laparotomic placement allowing an increase in the number of patients treated by IAHC. The aim of the present study is the comparative analysis of surgical and percutaneous transaxillary approaches to implant the catheter into the hepatic artery (HA) for IAHC...
