Signet ring carcinoma (SRCC) of gallbladder is an extremely rare tumor accounting for approximately 3% of all gallbladder carcinomas, with a handful of case reports in the literature. We report a case of signet ring cell carcinoma of the gallbladder in a 70 year-old female who was operated upon after the preoperative diagnosis of cholecystitis with cholelithiasis, based on ultrasonographic findings and subsequently diagnosed as signet ring cell carcinoma of the gallbladder on histopathological examination. Grossly there was no discrete growth, instead tumor presented as linitis plastica like diffuse thickening of the gallbladder wall...

INTRODUCTION Linitis plastica (LP) is a particular subtype of diffuse gastric cancer and is thought to have a very poor prognosis. The operative approach in patients with LP has historically been questioned because of the poor outcomes. The aim of this study was to determine the current outcomes in LP patients who undergo radical resection. METHODS Patients with a new diagnosis of diffuse gastric adenocarcinoma between 2006 and 2010 were identified from a regional pathology database. LP was diagnosed based on histological, radiological and endoscopic findings...

An old man was found unconscious; on admission found to have disseminated intravascular coagulation with concern of upper gastrointestinal bleed after he was found to have melena. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy on admission showed diffuse thickened gastric folds, and biopsy showed mucosal oedema. Bone marrow biopsy concerning for lymphoma was obtained showed adenocarcinoma. MRI of the abdomen was significant for diffuse gastric wall thickening. A repeat endoscopic ultrasound showed a diffuse gastric wall thickening of 15 mm and submucosal tunneling technique biopsy suggested high-grade, invasive, signet ring adenocarcinoma of the stomach...

Breast cancer metastases to the gastrointestinal tract are very rare occurrences. Among the histological subtypes of breast cancer, invasive lobular carcinomas have a high capacity of metastasis to uncommon sites including the stomach. Conversely, there has not been sufficient evidence supporting the gastric metastasis of invasive ductal carcinoma. Herein, we report a unique case of metastatic ductal breast carcinoma mimicking primary linitis plastica in a male patient, particularly focusing on the clinical and pathological features of presentation...

BACKGROUND: A complete omentectomy is recommended as part of radical (sub)total gastrectomy for gastric cancer, but there is little evidence to suggest any survival benefit. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of, and risk factors for, metastases in the greater omentum in patients undergoing gastrectomy for gastric cancer. METHODS: This was a multicentre prospective cohort study (OMEGA trial) of consecutive patients with gastric cancer undergoing (sub)total gastrectomy with complete en bloc omentectomy and modified D2 lymphadenectomy...

Early diagnosis of Borrmann type 4 advanced gastric cancer (AGC) is very important for improving the prognosis of AGC patients. Because there is no definite mass in most cases of Borrmann type 4 AGC, its accurate diagnosis via endoscopy requires an understanding of its pathogenesis and developmental process. Moreover, many people confuse linitis plastica (LP) type gastric cancer (GC), scirrhous GC, and Borrmann type 4 AGC. To distinguish each of these cancers, knowledge of their endoscopic and pathological differences is necessary, especially for LP type GCs in the developmental stage...

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is currently the preferred surgical procedure to treat morbid obesity. It has proven its effects on excess weight loss and its positive effect on comorbidities. One of the main issues, however, is the postoperative evaluation of the bypassed gastric remnant. In literature, cancer of the excluded stomach after RYGB is rare. We describe the case of a 52-year-old woman with gastric linitis plastica in the bypassed stomach after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, diagnosed by means of laparoscopy and Single-Balloon enteroscopy, and it's clinical importance...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to identify the yield of staging laparoscopy with peritoneal lavage cytology for gastric cancer patients and to track it over time. METHODS: The medical records of patients with gastric or gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma who underwent pretreatment staging laparoscopy at the authors' institution from 1995 to 2012 were reviewed. The yield of laparoscopy was defined as the proportion of patients who had positive findings on laparoscopy, including those with macroscopic carcinomatosis, positive cytology, or other clinically important findings...

A 52-year-old Caucasian woman presented with progressive nausea and vomiting, weight loss, and burning epigastric and chest pain. Initial oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD) with biopsies demonstrated gastritis in absence of Helicobacter pylori A gastric emptying study, CT scan with pancreatic protocol and a colonoscopy revealed no concerning findings. Calcium channel blockers and proton pump inhibitors offered little improvement. A high-resolution oesophageal impedance manometry was performed, which was significant for jackhammer oesophagus with maximum distal contractile index 11 052 mm Hg-s-cm...

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) have a great value in clinical practice of gastrointestinal lymphoma (GIL). Auxiliary methods such as flow cytometry (FCM) and gene rearrangement provide additional information for the diagnosis. Current study aims to explore the diagnostic value of EUS-FNA combined with FCM and gene rearrangement for GIL in our single institution. Suspected GIL cases, which were referred to EUS, FNA, FCM, or gene rearrangement examination, were retrospectively reviewed from January 2011 to May 2014...

Metastatic disease from pancreatic carcinoma involving the stomach is an unusual event, and the pattern of spread in the form of linitis plastica, to our knowledge, has not been reported previously. Local recurrence after curative resection for pancreatic cancer is the most common pattern of disease. We report a case of metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma presenting as linitis plastica of the stomach 4 years after curative resection. A 52-year-old man presented with epigastric pain and melaena 4 years after undergoing a Whipple's procedure for a poorly-differentiated pancreatic adenocarcinoma, stage IB; T2N0M0...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal carcinomatosis is common after curative resection of gastric cancer. Intraperitoneal administration of paclitaxel (PTX) is known to control ovarian peritoneal metastases. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with either linitis plastica or T4 cancer with high risk of peritoneal metastasis or recurrence but whose cancer was considered resectable were preregistered. After their cancer had been confirmed intraoperatively as resectable, the patients were randomized into either group A (PTX at 60 mg/m(2) intraperitoneally on the day of surgery and on days 14, 21, 28, 42, 49, and 56) or group B (PTX at 80 mg/m(2) administered intravenously by the identical schedule) before being treated by evidence-based chemotherapy...

Metastases to the gastrointestinal tract rarely occur in breast cancer except in invasive lobular carcinoma. The present study reports a rare case of metastatic gastric cancer from invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) of the breast mimicking primary gastric linitis plastica. A 51-year-old premenopausal female, who had a history of partial mastectomy for right breast cancer at the age of 40, was referred to Toyama City Hospital (Toyoma, Japan) for an endoscopic diagnosis of gastric linitis plastica. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) revealed left hydronephrosis, while peritoneal metastasis and malignant ascites were not detected...
