BACKGROUND: Elevated bile amylase level in patients with pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM) or high confluence of pancreaticobiliary ducts (HCPBD) is well known as a risk factor for gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) development. However, the effects of occult pancreaticobiliary reflux (OPR), a condition characterized by high bile amylase level in the presence of an anatomically normal pancreaticobiliary junction, on GBC development remain unclear. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between OPR and GBC...

Pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM) is a congenital malformation in which the pancreatic and bile ducts join anatomically outside the duodenal wall. Because of the excessive length of the common channel in PBM, sphincter action does not directly affect the pancreaticobiliary junction, which allows pancreatic juice to reflux into the biliary tract. According to the results of a nationwide survey, bile duct and gallbladder cancers were found in 6.9 and 13.4 % of adult patients with congenital biliary dilatation, respectively, and in 3...

Retroperitoneal mucinous neoplasms are common and have a wide range of differential diagnoses to consider. It is of utmost importance to maintain a multidisciplinary approach when evaluating these lesions. Clinical history, surgical impression and radiographic studies should be obtained and used in conjunction with morphology and immunohistochemistry to help guide the pathologist to the correct diagnosis. We recently encountered a case of a 51-year-old man who presented with an 11.5 cm left-sided retroperitoneal mucinous neoplasm...

Epithelial ovarian cancer comprises a heterogeneous group of tumors. The four most common subtypes are serous, endometrioid, clear cell, and mucinous carcinoma. Less common are transitional cell tumors, including transitional cell carcinoma and malignant Brenner tumor. While in the past these subtypes were grouped together and designated as epithelial ovarian tumors, these tumor types are now known to be separate entities with distinct clinical and biologic behaviors. From a therapeutic standpoint, current regimens employ standard chemotherapy based on stage and grade rather than histotype...

Adenocarcinomas exhibiting gastric differentiation represent a recently described and uncommon subtype of non-human papillomavirus (HPV)-related cervical adenocarcinoma. They comprise a spectrum from a well-differentiated variant (adenoma malignum/mucinous variant of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma) to a more poorly differentiated overtly malignant form, generally referred to as gastric-type adenocarcinoma. Rarely, such tumors have also been described as primary vaginal neoplasms. Gastric-type adenocarcinomas exhibit considerable morphologic overlap with adenocarcinomas originating outside the female genital tract, especially mucinous adenocarcinomas arising in the pancreas and biliary tract...

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are characterized by the growth of epithelial components with mucin production in the main pancreatic duct, or a large branch. We report a case of intraductal papillary mucinous carcinoma (IPMC) of the pancreatic head, complicated by pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM) and an aberrant pancreatic duct draining into the stomach. A 50-year-old man with malaise and jaundice was found to have a mass in the pancreatic head at a local hospital. He was clinically diagnosed with IPMC with invasion to the stomach and duodenum after extensive endoscopic and radiological evaluation and a pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed...

The outcome of gallbladder carcinoma is poor, and the overall 5-year survival rate is less than 5%. In early-stage disease, a 5-year survival rate up to 75% can be achieved if stage-adjusted therapy is performed. There is wide geographic variability in the frequency of gallbladder carcinoma, which can only be explained by an interaction between genetic factors and their alteration. Gallstones and chronic cholecystitis are important risk factors in the formation of gallbladder malignancies. Factors such as chronic bacterial infection, primary sclerosing cholangitis, an anomalous junction of the pancreaticobiliary duct, and several types of gallbladder polyps are associated with a higher risk of gallbladder cancer...

GOAL: Metabolic syndrome and its components play an important part in the development of not only cardiovascular conditions, but also digestive and pancreaticobiliary system diseases. The aim of our study is to present a comprehensive overview of the diseases where metabolic syndrome is an inducing risk factor, or where it affects the course of the disease. RESULTS: Metabolic syndrome is a significant risk factor of induction of gastroesophageal reflux and its complication, which is Barretts esophagus...

Papillary tumors originate from the various structures of the ampulla of Vater; therefore, these rare tumors represent a heterogeneous group of tumor entities. Intestinal differentiated adenomas are the most common benign lesions, whereas intestinal differentiated papillary carcinomas are the most common malignant tumors. Carcinomas with pancreaticobiliary differentiation have a poorer prognosis. Mesenchymal and neuroendocrine tumors are among the least frequent papillary tumors. Diagnosis is performed by side-view upper endoscopy and biopsy...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: It has been suggested that endoscopic sphincterotomy predisposes a patient to cholangitis, pancreatitis, and carcinoma in the pancreaticobiliary tract in the long term. Previous studies have shown an increased risk for acute cholangitis and pancreatitis but not for carcinoma. The aim of this study was to analyze these risks by conducting a long-term follow-up study of patients who underwent treatment for gallstone disease, comparing patients who underwent endoscopic sphincterotomy with those who did not...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology was demonstrated to be a useful tool for the diagnosis and staging of pancreaticobiliary neoplastic lesions. Nonetheless, the diagnostic value of this procedure may be limited by low cellularity of the specimen, contamination of intestinal cells and unfeasibility of ancillary immunocytochemical procedures. The present study was to evaluate its usefulness in the diagnosis of neoplastic lesions. METHODS: A series of 46 pancreaticobiliary carcinomas with available cell block preparations was submitted to immunocytochemistry against cytokeratins, carcinoembryonic antigen, E-cadherin, CD10 and p53...

The biological relevance of histological subtyping of ampullary carcinoma into intestinal vs pancreaticobiliary types remains to be determined. In an effort to molecularly profile these subtypes of ampullary carcinomas, we conducted a two-phase study. In the discovery phase, we identified 18 pancreatobiliary-type ampullary carcinomas and 14 intestinal-type ampullary carcinomas using stringent pathologic criteria and performed next-generation sequencing targeting 279 cancer-associated genes on these tumors. Although the results showed overlapping of genomic alterations between the two subtypes, trends including more frequent KRAS alterations in pancreatobiliary-type ampullary carcinoma (61 vs 29%) and more frequent mutations in APC in intestinal-type ampullary carcinoma (43 vs 17%) were observed...

OBJECTIVES: Adjuvant gemcitabine with or without chemoradiation is a standard therapeutic option for patients with resected pancreatic cancer. The feasibility and toxicity of gemcitabine with docetaxel before and after 5-fluorouracil (5FU)-based chemoradiation in the adjuvant pancreatic and biliary cancer setting were investigated. METHODS: After a curative-intent resection, eligible patients with pancreaticobiliary cancers were treated with two cycles of gemcitabine and docetaxel followed by 5FU-based chemoradiation...

Activating mutation of KRAS plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of common human malignancies and molecular testing of KRAS mutation has emerged as an essential biomarker in the current practice of clinical oncology. The presence of KRAS mutation is generally associated with clinical aggressiveness of the cancer and reduced survival of the patient. Therapeutically, KRAS mutation testing has maximum utility in stratifying metastatic colorectal carcinoma and lung cancer patients for treatment with targeted therapy...

Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), due to their excellent soft tissue contrasts, have become first-line noninvasive tests in the characterization and detection of both hepatic and pancreaticobiliary pathologies. MRCP is also helpful in detecting the level and cause of obstruction in patients presenting with jaundice. Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is the most common primary malignant tumor arising from the bile duct epithelium, with extrahepatic tumors presenting more often than with intrahepatic ones...

Focal liver lesions with glandular features encompass inflammatory, hyperplastic, hamartomatous to neoplastic lesions. They can be solid/cystic, solitary/multiple, occurring in a normal/diseased liver. Hepatobiliary entities should be segregated before considering nonhepatobiliary conditions.In small tissue samples such as fine needle aspiration (FNA) or core biopsy, the diagnostic issues are to distinguish/recognize cystic from solid lesions, primary from metastatic adenocarcinoma, poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma from poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), rare glandular entities, mimics and pitfalls...

A 54-year-old Japanese woman was referred with a gallbladder tumor. Based on the results of the computed tomography scan, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, a mucin-producing neoplasm of the gallbladder associated with pancreaticobiliary maljunction was diagnosed. Extended cholecystectomy, extrahepatic bile duct resection, and choledochojejunostomy were performed, and she remains free of recurrence 24 months after resection. Histopathological examination revealed that the papillary component of the lesion was an intracystic papillary neoplasm with diverse characteristics of pancreaticobiliary epithelium and intestinal epithelium including mucin...
