Plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma is a rare and aggressive form of urothelial carcinoma characterized with delayed presentation and poor prognosis. Very few cases of this carcinoma have been reported in the literature. Here, we report and discuss two cases of bladder plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma of a 57-year-old male presentedwith renal colic, and a 33-year-old female presented with macroscopic hematuria. Pathologic examinations of thetransurethral biopsies revealed urothelial carcinoma with plasmacytoid appearance...

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common gynecological cancers worldwide. It is the third leading cause of cancer among women in India. Metastatic disease to the visceral organs from ovarian cancer occurs as a terminal event in the natural history of the disease. In particular, spread to the bone and large bowel is infrequently described. The risk of distant metastasis increases in a recurrent setting. We describe a case of a 77-year-old lady, who was diagnosed for ovarian carcinoma in 2007 and underwent primary cytoreductive surgery, stage IIIc...

INTRODUCTION: Hepatic choristomas or ectopic livers are uncommon, and occur due to a failure of embryological liver development. They pose a risk of carcinogenesis, with transformation to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) being described in the literature (Arakawa et al., 1999). It is often a silent clinical finding that can occur anywhere in the body and is usually diagnosed incidentally during abdominal surgical procedures or autopsies (Eiserth et al., 1940). We present the case of a patient with a symptomatic ectopic liver that was detected preoperatively, and removed laparoscopically with the gallbladder...

Introduction: Extra-anastomotic intraluminal recurrence of the colon cancer after curative surgery was rarely reported but intraluminal ileal relapse has not been described to date.We report a case of intraluminal ileal tumor arising after curative right hemicolectomy that could be ascribed to an implantation of exfoliated cancer cells. Case report: A 71-years old man was admitted with no metastatic stenotic adenocarcinoma of the hepatic flexure and submitted, without preoperative bowel preparation, to right hemicolectomy using a "no-touch" technique...

BACKGROUND: Poncet's disease is a rare syndrome characterized by articular impairment in a form of rare tuberculid. One of the theories of its cause involves an autoimmune response induced by the intravesical administration of the Calmette-Guerin Bacillus or the treatment of bladder carcinoma. Furthermore, there may be an appearance of oligoarticular or polyarticular arthritis, beginning 1-3 months after the start of therapy. Few physicians know the disease and the literature related to that syndrome is scarce and restricted to case reports, which contributes to its under diagnosis...

INTRODUCTION: Renal colic is commonly encountered in the emergency department (ED). We validated a fast track renal colic (FTRC) initiative to decrease patient waiting times and streamline patient flow. METHOD: The FTRC pathway was devised according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence clinical summary criteria for the management of patients with suspected renal colic. ED triage nurses use the pathway to identify patients with likely renal colic suitable for fast track to analgesia, investigation and management...

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: 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...
