BACKGROUND: The most common cause of perihilar obstruction is cholangiocarcinoma, especially in Thailand. Benign perihilar stricture represents less than 20% of cases. IgG4-related disease and IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis, however, have been receiving increased recognition. Isolated IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis is less common. The preoperative diagnosis of IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis without pancreatic involvement is very difficult because the clinical presentation and preoperative evaluation are extremely difficult to distinguish from perihilar cholangiocarcinoma...

Malignant melanocytic neoplasm, usually seen in soft tissues, is rare in a visceral location and presents as a diagnostic dilemma. We present a case of pancreatic malignant melanocytic neoplasm with liver metastasis. A 58-year-old man presented with left upper abdominal swelling and loss of appetite. Imaging revealed a large mass arising from the pancreatic tail, and this was diagnosed as malignant neoplasm with melanocytic differentiation on biopsy with the possible differentials of malignant melanoma, clear cell sarcoma (CCS), and perivascular epithelioid cell neoplasm...

REVIEW
Esther Una Cidon
Neuroendocrine (NE) gastroenteropancreatic tumors are a heterogeneous group of neoplasias arising from neuroendocrine cells of the embryological gut. Their incidence have increased significantly over the past 3 decades probably due to the improvements in imaging and diagnosis. The recent advances in molecular biology have translated into an expansion of therapeutic approaches to these patients. Somatostatin analogs, which initially were approved for control of hormonal syndromes, have recently been proven to inhibit tumor growth...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have been conducted on patterns of recurrence after resection for distal cholangiocarcinoma (DCC). The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and pattern of recurrence after resection of DCC, and to evaluate prognostic factors for time to recurrence and recurrence-free survival (RFS). METHODS: Patients who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy with curative intent for DCC between 2001 and 2010 at one of 30 hospitals in Japan were reviewed retrospectively, with special attention to recurrence patterns...

Pancreatic metastasis of colorectal cancer is uncommon and is often identified in later stages of cancer, thereby making resection more uncommon. We report a case oflong -term survival after resection of metachronous metastasis to the pancreas from primary sigmoid colon cancer. A 50-year-old female patient underwent a sigmoid colon resection and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for sigmoid colon cancer and metastatic ovarian cancer in 2007. She underwent partial lung resection for metastatic lung cancer twice...

The patient was a 73-year-old woman who underwent distalpancreatectomy for pancreas tailcancer (T3, N0, M0, stage III ). Hepatic arterialinfusion(HAI)using high-dose 5-fluorouracil(5-FU)(6,000mg/week)was performed 35 days after curative resection to prevent liver metastases. Although chemotherapy with gemcitabine(GEM)was administered for 2 weeks, the patient was aware of a nodule(1 cm in diameter)on the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. Resection of the cutaneous mass was performed and histological findings revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma from the pancreas cancer...

A 37-year-old man visited a previous hospital because of left abdominal pain. A contrast-enhanced CT scan revealed a 7 cm solid tumor in the pancreas body, and the patient was referred to our hospital. EUS-FNA showed that the tumor cells were positive for b-catenin in the nuclei, as well as for CD10 and CD56. On the other hand, the cells were negative for chromogranin A and synaptophysin. This is the typical immunohistochemical pattern of a solid pseudopapillary neoplasm(SPN). Therefore, we diagnosed this case as SPN before surgery...

A 64-year-old woman diagnosed with duodenal adenocarcinoma with duodenal stenosis and obstructive jaundice was referred to our hospital. Computed tomography revealed a tumor measuring 9×6 cm in the second portion of the duodenum that had invaded the liver(S6)and head of the pancreas. After percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage for obstructive jaundice, the patient underwent subtotal stomach-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy, partial resection of the liver(S6), and partial resection of the colon. Histologic examination showed the primary tumor to be moderately and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with hepatic and pancreatic invasion; lymph node metastasis was not found...

A 52-year-old man was initially diagnosed with an unresectable acinar cell carcinoma of the pancreas with liver metastasis and involvement of the superior mesenteric artery. After 5 courses of systemic chemotherapy(gemcitabine and S-1), the size of the pancreatic tumor had decreased from 31mm to 19mm and the liver metastasis had disappeared. We initiated chemoradiotherapy( CRT: S-1+56 Gy)for further local treatment. After CRT the size of the pancreatic tumor decreased to 13mm and his serum CA 19-9 level decreased from 677...

A 50-year-old woman had a 12mm liver tumor at segment 4 and was diagnosed with hemangioma. Two years later, the liver tumor had grown to 27mm in diameter, and a new pancreatic tumor was detected using CT examination. The pancreatic tumor was suspected of being pancreatic carcinoma, based on the results of endoscopic-ultrasound-guided fine-needlebiopsy( EUS-FNA)of the pancreas. The liver tumor was diagnosed as adenocarcinoma using liver biopsy. Because of its slow growth and the solitary liver tumor, synchronous pancreatic cancer and intrahepatic cancer were suspected...

Trousseau's syndrome refers to cerebral infarction associated with hypercoagulability caused by cancer. Here, we report a case of Trousseau's syndrome in a patient with pancreatic cancer undergoing surgery. A 71-year-old woman was diagnosed with pancreatic head cancer with portal vein invasion; she underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with portal vein resection. Pathological examination showed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with para-aortic lymph nodal metastasis. Although the patient had an uneventful postoperative course, she suddenly developed right hemiplegia and dysarthria 6 weeks after surgery, resulting in multiple cerebral infarctions scattered over both hemispheres...

Pancreatic ductal carcinoma is a highly aggressive cancer, and chemotherapy is the standard therapy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. We report curative resection for a case of pancreatic cancer with liver metastasis after chemotherapy. A 67-yearold woman presented with vomiting and weight loss, and was admitted to our hospital for an evaluation of pancreatic lesions. Computed tomography revealed a hypoattenuating tumor in the head of the pancreas. We would usually perform pancreatoduodenectomy based on a diagnosis of cStage III ...

A 74-year-old man underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy for intraductal pupillary mucinous neoplasm(IPMN)of the pancreatic head. Histopathological examination of the specimen revealed non-invasive intraductal papillary mucinous carcinoma( IPMC). Two years after surgery, recurrent IPMN developed in the remnant pancreas, and a liver tumor was identified in S8 of the liver. The patient underwent total pancreatectomy of the remnant pancreas and partial resection of S8. These tumors were histopathologically diagnosed as invasive IPMC and hepatocellular carcinoma, respectively...

Case 1: A 40-year-old man was diagnosed with remnant pancreatic cancer invading the celiac axis 8 months after pancreaticoduodenectomy for pancreatic head cancer. As his gastroduodenal artery had been resected, the patient underwent preoperative coil embolization of the common hepatic artery for the development of extrahepatic collaterals. Eighteen days after the coil embolization, remnant pancreatectomy combined with celiac axis resection without reconstruction was performed. The patient was discharged without postoperative hepatic complications...

Distal pancreatectomy with celiac axis resection is one of the most aggressive approaches for the treatment of locally advanced pancreatic cancer with common hepatic artery and/or celiac axis invasion. However, ischemic complications such as ischemic gastropathy and liver failure are problematic. To avoid these complications, we developed left gastric artery-reconstructing distal pancreatectomy with celiac axis resection. We used the middle colic artery for reconstruction. We performed this procedure in 10 patients, using the middle colic artery in three different ways: left branch reconstruction, right branch reconstruction, and reverse reconstruction...
