Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) of the pancreas is a very rare neoplasm. We report a case of pancreatic acinar cell carcinoma involving the uncinate process of the pancreas. A 45 year old man presented with a painful upper abdominal mass without any jaundice or weight loss. Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Cholangio-Pancreatography (MRCP) indicated a mass lesion in the uncinate process of the pancreas. He underwent Whipple's procedure (Pancreaticoduodenectomy). Histological slides revealed features of Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) in the uncinate process of the pancreas and a lymph node...

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are becoming a standard therapy for non-small-cell lung cancer in the advanced stage. As these ICIs become widely available in clinical practice, immune-related adverse effects will become more common. Here we report a patient with lung adenocarcinoma who was treated with nivolumab and developed obstruction because of biliary inflammation. A 63-year-old Japanese man having lung adenocarcinoma with pleural dissemination complained of epigastric pain on the fifth cycle of nivolumab...

A 66-year-old man with history of prostate carcinoma underwent Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT for surveillance of rising prostate-specific antigen. Intense tracer uptake was noted in segments 2, 7, and 8 of the liver. The lesions were not FDG avid on F-FDG PET/CT. Further characterization with magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography with Gd-EOB (Primovist) contrast revealed ill-defined arterially enhancing lesions with central washout in the venous phase. CT-guided core biopsy was performed, and histopathology confirmed well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma...

OBJECTIVES: Suspected sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) is a well-known risk factor for post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) pancreatitis (PEP). The indication of ERCP for suspected SOD patients was very low in Japan compared to other countries. Therefore, the risk of PEP may be different in Japanese SOD patients. The objective of this study was to evaluate the risk of PEP in suspected biliary type SOD in Japan. METHODS: From December 1996 to January 2017, 72 patients were suspected to have biliary type SOD by questionnaire, liver function tests, hepatobiliary scintigraphy, abdominal ultrasonography, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasonography, and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography...

REVIEW
Koushik K Das, Dayna Early
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review describes the rationale for pancreatic cancer screening, outlines groups that are at elevated risk for pancreatic cancer, and summarizes the relative risk in each setting. We also review the methods available for performing pancreatic cancer screening and the recommended screening intervals. RECENT FINDINGS: Several genetic mutations have been identified that increase the risk for pancreatic cancer. Most are rare, however, and at-risk individuals are most often those with a strong family history of pancreatic cancer (with multiple family members affected) but no identifiable genetic mutation...

A peripherally generated afferent volley that arrives at the peak negative (PN) phase during the movement related cortical potential (MRCP) induces significant plasticity at the cortical level in healthy individuals and chronic stroke patients. Transferring this type of associative brain-computer interface (BCI) intervention into the clinical setting requires that the proprioceptive input is comparable to the techniques implemented during the rehabilitation process. These consist mainly of functional electrical stimulation (FES) and passive movement induced by an actuated orthosis...

The incidence of cystic pancreatic lesions is steadily increasing due to the technical advances in imaging. Within the group of cystic pancreatic lesions intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) depict an important entity. Due to a possible progression to malignancy the clinical strategy has to be well chosen. For primary diagnostic work-up imaging by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and computed tomography (CT) scanning is recommended. Additional information can be gained by endosonography and a biopsy of the cystic lesion, allowing analysis of biomarkers, such as GNAS and KRAS mutation as wells as NLR...

When there is an anatomic anomaly in the biliary tract of the donor for living-donor liver transplantation, the risk of postoperative biliary tract complications increases in both the donor and the recipient. We studied a case of living-donor liver transplantation with a left hepatic lobe graft that had anatomic anomalies, in which the medial segmental branch (B4) joined the anterior segmental branch and the posterior segmental branch formed a common trunk with the lateral segmental branch. A 40-year-old man visited our institution as a candidate organ donor for his mother, who had end-stage liver failure...

We report a case of a 48-year-old female patient, who presented with abdominal pain, jaundice, and lack of appetite. Ultrasound showed intrahepatic biliary dilatation with retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy. Further magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography detected Klatskin tumor. Computed tomography (CT) confirmed the Klatskin tumor with liver metastases and retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy. Biopsy from the hepatic lesion identified mucinous adenocarcinoma, likely originating from bile ducts. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography was performed 3 times with stents placed in the left and right hepatic bile ducts...
