The existence of a link between urinary schistosomiasis (US) and bladder carcinoma was first suspected by C. Goebel in 1905. In 1911, A.R Ferguson, who was a professor of Pathology and Microbiology at the Faculty of Medicine in Cairo, published a more detailed survey from 40 autopsies, and reported a likely association of bladder carcinoma with granulomas caused by US. Subsequently, published results from several studies reinforced Ferguson's hypothesis. Moreover, in most countries where US was endemic, association of high prevalence of bladder carcinoma with US had been pointed out...

A 58-year-old female presented with renal colic and was found to have renal transitional cell carcinoma at the time of percutaneous surgery. She developed percutaneous tract seeding that clinically presented as subcutaneous skin nodules. After local treatment with surgical excision and radiation treatment, the patient developed retroperitoneal recurrence 5 years later. Percutaneous tract seeding is rare. There is no general consensus on prevention of tract seeding during percutaneous resection of renal urothelial tumors...

BACKGROUND: Cholecystectomy is one of the most commonly performed general surgery procedures in the USA. It is most frequently performed for benign biliary disease such as biliary colic or cholecystitis; however, resected specimens are frequently sent for histopathological analysis due to the perceived risk of incidental gallbladder carcinoma (iGBC). The principle aim of this study is to review the pathology results from gallbladder specimens sent for routine pathology, determine the incidence of iGBC in our population, and determine whether surgeons need to send specimens for further analysis if no preoperative or intraoperative suspicion for malignancy is present...

BACKGROUND: The first reported case of intestinal perforation secondary to metastatic lung carcinoma was reported in 1957. Intestinal metastases are present in up to 1.8% of the cases, with small bowel obstruction as the most common clinical presentation. CLINICAL CASE: An 89 year-old male, who was diagnosed with a high-grade pulmonary mucoepidermoid tumour 2 months previously. The patient was admitted to the hospital for 3 days due to diffuse colic abdominal pain of moderate to severe intensity, accompanied by nausea and gastric vomiting, as well as 2 episodes of bloody bowel movements...

We report the case of a patient who underwent conversion surgery after long-term chemotherapy for advanced gastric carcinoma with synchronous distant metastasis. She was admitted to our hospital because of back pain and elevated serum ALP level. Gastrointestinal endoscopy showed multiple 0-Ⅱa like lesions at the gastric antrum, and a biopsy specimen showed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma negative for HER2. Colonoscopy showed a submucosal tumor at the cecum, and pathological examination revealed metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma...

A 71-year-old woman was admitted for fever and appetite loss. She was diagnosed with ascending colon cancer, with portal vein tumor thromboembolism extending to the portosplenic junction. This was deemed unresectable despite the absence of distant metastasis. She underwent 16 courses of mFOLFOX6 therapy, and because the effect of chemotherapy was PR, right hemicolectomy with high ligation of the ileocolic vessels and the right branch of the middle colic vessels was performed. The tumor stage was yp-T3N1bM0, StageⅢB with a few remaining cancer cells in the portal venous system...

BACKGROUND: Pheochromocytoma is the most common adrenal medullary neoplasm of domestic animals, but it is rare in horses. Antemortem diagnosis in horses is difficult, with clinical signs often being vague or non-specific. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to describe the clinical, laboratory, and pathologic findings of pheochromocytoma in horses. ANIMALS: Thirty-seven horses diagnosed with pheochromocytoma based on postmortem examination from 2007 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Surgical removal of the anal canal and sphincter for carcinoma results in end-stage fecal incontinence (ESFI) and requires a permanent colostomy resulting in significant impact on quality of life. Presently, there are limited options for EFSI. The successful use of pedicled antropyloric valve (APV) based on left gastroepiploic artery as an alternative to permanent colostomy has previously been described. It is based on a long omental pedicle which at times is risky and is difficult to perform...

Postmortem findings in 241 equids admitted to a teaching hospital that were at least 15 years old at autopsy were reviewed (1) to determine disease prevalence, (2) to compare the cause of death (or euthanasia) in equids 15 to 19 years of age (n = 116) with that in equids ≥20 years of age (n = 125), and (3) to catalog coexisting lesions in equids with pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID). Breed and sex were evenly distributed between the age groups. Death or euthanasia was attributed to disease of the digestive system (41...

BACKGROUND: Resection of the liver is often limited due to the volume of the parenchyma. To address this problem, several approaches to induce hypertrophy were developed. Recently, the 'associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy' (ALPPS) procedure was introduced and led to rapid hypertrophy in a short interval. Additionally to the portal vein occlusion, the parenchyma is transected, which disrupts the inter-parenchymal vascular connections. Since the first description of the ALPPS procedure, various reports around the world were published...

INTRODUCTION: Malignant bowel obstruction (MBO) is a recognized complication of advanced pelvic or abdominal malignancy frequently occurring in advanced stages of illness. Suggested incidences in ovarian carcinoma range from 5.5 to 42% and in colorectal cancer 4.4 to 24%. Where surgery for MBO is inappropriate medical management may help bring about resolution of the unpleasant symptoms. AIMS AND METHODS: The aim of this review was to evaluate current evidence and opinion on treatment of symptoms associated with MBO...
