The uncommonness of gallbladder cancer in the developed world has contributed to the generally poor understanding of the disease. Our integrated analysis of whole exome sequencing, copy number alterations, immunohistochemical, and phospho-proteome array profiling indicates ERBB2 alterations in 40% early-stage rare gallbladder tumors, among an ethnically distinct population not studied before, that occurs through overexpression in 24% (n=25) and recurrent mutations in 14% tumors (n=44); along with co-occurring KRAS mutation in 7% tumors (n=44)...

Extrahepatic bile duct cancer (EBDC) is a combined type of malignancy mainly consisting of extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and gallbladder cancer. Clinically, it is featured with latent symptoms and early metastasis, leading to a poor prognosis. Therefore, this cohort study aimed to depict the possible metastatic patterns of EBDC of diverse sub-types and evaluate the prognostic significance of diverse metastatic destinations with data from the clinical database. Relevant data of total 4061 confirmed EBDC patients diagnosed between 2010 and 2013 from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database was obtained...

INTRODUCTION: Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the gallbladder is extremely rare, and accounts for about 3% of all malignant gallbladder neoplasms. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report the case of a 58-year-old woman who presented with acute onset epigastric pain radiating to the back. The initial diagnosis, based on radiological images, was an incidental gallbladder mass with multiple gallstones. A staging laparoscopy was performed, followed by exploratory laparotomy with radical cholecystectomy...

Background: Mirizzi syndrome is a condition difficult to diagnose and treat, representing a particular "challenge" for the biliary surgeon. The disease can mimic cancer of the gallbladder, causing considerable diagnostic difficulties. Furthermore, it increases the risk of intraoperative biliary injury during cholecystectomy. The aim of this study is to point out some particular aspects of diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Methods: The clinical records of patients with Mirizzi syndrome, treated in the last five years, were reviewed...

Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is a rare gastrointestinal tumour. It occurs in women with pre-existing cholelithiasis. These tumours pose therapeutic as well as diagnostic challenges to treating clinicians. Early suspicion and optimal surgery for suspected GBC results in the best outcome. We describe two cases of metastatic GBC initially treated by simple cholecystectomy for gallstone despite disease pointers towards a malignant pathology. Subsequent presentation was with histopathologically proven metastatic GBC...

BACKGROUND: Incidental gallbladder cancer (iGBC) is on the rise world over. This may be a good scenario as we get to treat GBC in early stages. However, there is a practice of diagnosing patients based on clinicoradiological findings alone and subjecting them to a radical surgical procedure. This approach over-treats patient and has important implications for resource utilization. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 284 consecutive patients undergoing upfront surgery for suspected GBC from January 2010 to December 2016...

There are no neuroectodermal cells in the gallbladder mucosa. Therefore, gallbladder neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is extremely rare and has a poor prognosis. We report a case of a Japanese man in his 60s with this disease. The patient visited a family doctor for epigastralgia. Blood tests showed no abnormalities, including tumor markers, such as CEA and CA19-9. Abdominal ultrasonography (US) showed a low-echoic mass, 39 × 30 mm, with clear boundaries to the liver from the fundus of the gallbladder. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed that the tumor was enhanced early and washed out...

Gallbladder cancer is a rare malignancy of the biliary tract with a poor prognosis, frequently presenting at an advanced stage. While rare in the United States overall, gallbladder cancer has an elevated incidence in geographically distinct locations of the globe including Chile, North India, Korea, Japan and the state of New Mexico in the United States. People with Native American ancestry have a much elevated incidence of gallbladder cancer compared to Hispanic and non-Hispanic white populations of New Mexico...

BACKGROUND: Current consensus guidelines suggest that gallbladder cancer (GBC) patients with resected T1a disease can be observed while patients with T1b or greater lesions should undergo lymphadenectomy (LNE). The primary aim of this study was to critically explore the impact of LNE in early-stage GBC on overall survival (OS) on a population-based level. METHOD: The 2004-2014 National Cancer Database was reviewed to identify non-metastatic GBC patients with T1a, T1b, or T2 disease and grouped whether a dedicated LNE was performed...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Although the incidence of carcinoma is not high in gallbladder polyps, it is essential to diagnose gallbladder cancer at an early stage to achieve a good therapeutic outcome. Therefore, the aim of this study was to define the characteristics of gallbladder polyps to establish sound criteria for surgical indications. METHODS: In the current study, data from 516 patients with gallbladder polyps who underwent cholecystectomy were reviewed to correlate clinical features with histopathologic findings and identify risk factors with receiver-operating characteristic curves (ROCs)...

Laparoscopic radical cholecystectomy for gallbladder cancer (GBC) has been performed at various oncology centres reporting its technical feasibility. Considering GBC an aggressive malignancy, laparoscopic radical cholecystectomy should be dealt with caution. We recently encountered a case of carcinoma gallbladder who underwent laparoscopic radical cholecystectomy elsewhere and presented with early recurrence. The patient's records were evaluated and he underwent re-resection. Hereby, we discuss the factors that could lead to early recurrence after laparoscopic radical cholecystectomy and measures that can be taken to prevent it...

WNT inhibitory factor 1 (WIF‑1) is involved in the tumorigenicity and progression of several types of tumor, which has been attributed to aberrant hypermethylation of its promoter. However, the role of WIF‑1 in the pathogenesis of gallbladder cancer (GBC) remains to be fully elucidated, and the data available are insufficient to identify the upstream molecular mechanisms involved. In the present study, the methylation status of the WIF‑1 promoter was investigated using methylation‑specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and bisulfate sequencing PCR in GBC cells...

RATIONALE: Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is a highly fatal malignancy. Due to its invasiveness and delayed diagnosis, many GBC patients are diagnosed with synchronous liver and hepatoduodenal ligament involvement. In our case, we report a gallbladder cancer with portal vein thrombus. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 60-year-old woman presented with persistent upper abdominal dull pain for 2 months. DIAGNOSES: Ultrasound examination showed gallbladder carcinoma invading liver segment IV, and a tumor thrombus in the left and right main portal trunk...

A case of attempted laparoscopic cholecystectomy for elevated lesion which was clearly early biliary cancer. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become popular as a minimally invasive surgical method, and is the primary choice for benign diseases. However for cases of suspected biliary cancer, open cholecystectomy, rather than laparoscopic, is recommended according to medical guidelines. The reason for this is that in cases of damage to the gallbladder, bile spillage to the abdominal cavity may occur, leading to port site recurrence and peritoneal recurrence...

Although inflammation is central to gallbladder cancer (GBC) development and proliferation, no study has systematically investigated circulating inflammatory proteins and patient survival. We aimed to examine whether the circulating levels of inflammatory proteins is associated with all-cause mortality among such patients. We recruited 134 patients with newly diagnosed with GBC from 1997 to 2001 in a population-based study in Shanghai and an independent set of 35 patients from 2012 to 2013 in Chile. Cox proportional hazards regression models adjusted for covariates were used to evaluate the hazard ratios (HRs) for death by serum levels of 49 inflammatory proteins (quartiles)...
