Signet ring cell carcinoma (SRC) of the stomach is a histological type based on microscopic characteristics. SRC's clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis are still controversial. Our study is to describe the clinicopathological features and multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) findings of patients with SRC of the stomach in comparison with nonsignet ring cell adenocarcinoma (NSRC). We retrospectively analyzed data from 241 patients who had undergone curative gastrectomy, including 62 SRC and 179 NSRC...

BACKGROUND: Gastric signet ring cell carcinoma (SRC) has shown a favorable outcome in early stages but has a worse prognosis than non-SRC in advanced stages. However, the cause for this stage-dependent prognostic impact has not been determined. This study aimed to compare clinicopathologic features and recurrence patterns between gastric SRC and non-SRC in a cohort of Eastern patients. METHODS: This study reviewed the prospectively collected data of 764 patients undergoing curative resection for gastric cancer from 2005 to 2008...

The incidence of Helicobacter pylori-negative gastric cancer is very low. A 60-year-old man was referred to Tokai University Hospital from a local clinic because of eosinophilia. The laboratory data revealed prominent eosinophilia, with a white blood cell count of 7,900/μl and increased eosinophil granulocyte level of 1,659/μl. After an examination for secondary eosinophilia, esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed an enlarged gastric fold in the corpus, suggesting type 4 gastric cancer. Repeated EGD and a re-biopsy demonstrated poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma and signet ring cell carcinoma...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Laser-based photodynamic endoscopic diagnosis (LPDED) is a type of endoscopic diagnosis that uses the fluorescence caused by the photochemical reaction that occurs when a fluorescent substance is irradiated by a light of a specific wavelength. Although 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) can detect early gastric cancer (EGC) during LPDED, there is an unresolved issue of the differences in fluorescence intensity among histopathological types of gastric cancer. Thus, the aim of the present study was to assess whether protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPOX), involved in the activation of protoporphyrin IX, can affect the fluorescence intensity in EGC...

Nearly 70% of gastric cancer recurrences occur as peritoneal dissemination. Most of the treatment for recurrence of gastric cancer dissemination is chemotherapy; depending on the symptoms and the site of recurrence, palliative bypass surgery may be performed. Intensive treatment is often difficult for elderly patients over 85-years-old. This case was a 91-year-old female who underwent total gastrectomy for gastric cancer(signet-ring cell carcinoma)7years prior. Two years ago, a stenosis due to recurrence was revealed in the small intestine and bypass surgery was performed...

We report a 72-year-old woman with rare metastases of gastric cancer to the bone, skin, and ovary occurring more than 8 years after distal gastrectomy, which were subsequently effectively controlled. Histopathological diagnosis revealed signetring cell carcinoma, and the comprehensive findings were pT4a, pN3, ly2, v0, and Stage III c. The adjuvant chemotherapy of S- 1 plus cisplatin(CDDP)was switched to S-1monotherapy for 4 years and then to tegafur/uracil(UFT)for an additional year. Eight years after the operation, I-CTP and alkaline phosphatase(ALP)levels were elevated, and bone scintigraphy revealed bone metastasis...

A 78-year-old man underwent an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy for evaluation of epigastralgia. Endoscopy revealed a bulky type 3 tumor in the lesser curvature of the upper body. A biopsy showed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with signet ring cell carcinoma. Additionally, abdominal computed tomography(CT)showed bulky lymph node metastases leading to a diagnosis of cT3N2M0, Stage III A carcinoma. Following administration of 2 courses of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC)using S-1/cisplatin(CDDP), CT revealed significant regression of the primary lesion and lymph nodes...

RATIONALE: There is currently no consensus on the ideal method for obtaining deep tissue biopsy material of advanced gastric LP. EUS-FNA has potential as a useful diagnostic method. Thus, we report the case of a 46-year-old male with advanced gastric linitis plastica (LP) who was diagnosed using endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). PATIENT CONCERNS: The patient underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) because of epigastric pain at a local clinic...

Background: Trastuzumab is an active agent against human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive gastric cancer (GC). This study aimed to characterize resistance to trastuzumab-based front-line chemotherapy in HER2+ GC patients and to establish factors predictive of this resistance. Results: Among 129 HER2+ GC patients, 25% displayed rapid disease progression within 4 months from initiation of therapy. These patients showed a higher rate of signet ring cell histology, bone metastasis, poor performance status, frequent loss of PTEN expression, and low HER2 amplification index compared with patients who were progression-free for at least 4 months...

We treated 2 cases ofcolon metastasis ofgastric cancer considered to be caused by different pathway. Case 1 was a 55- year-old male with gastric cancer associated with metastases for lymph node, gallbladder, and liver. Curative surgical treatment of distal gastrectomy, partial hepatectomy, cholecystectomy and lymph node dissection was performed. The final find- ing was, L, Less, Type 3, pT4b(GB), tub2, pN3a(10/20), sP0, CY0, pH1, pM1, Stage IV , R0. Ten months after, ileocecal resection was performed, as a tumor was detected in the cecum...

BACKGROUND: Patients with hereditary diffuse gastric cancer and a CDH1 mutation have a 60-80 per cent lifetime risk of developing diffuse gastric cancer. Total prophylactic gastrectomy eliminates this risk, but is associated with considerable morbidity. The effectiveness (removal of all gastric mucosa) and outcomes of this procedure were evaluated retrospectively. METHODS: All consecutive individuals undergoing a prophylactic gastrectomy for a CDH1 mutation or gastric signet ring cell foci at the authors' institute between 2005 and 2017 were included...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence, survival, and propensity for nodal metastasis in early-stage gastric signet ring cell carcinoma have not been defined in the United States. These data are critical determinants for treatment allocation. METHODS: Cases of gastric signet ring cell carcinoma were extracted from the national SEER database for the years 2004-2013. Age-standardized incidence was derived. Survival was calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to identify predictors of nodal metastasis...

Background: Gastric cancer (GC) is associated with poor survival despite curative-intent surgical resection and systemic therapy. Our objective is to examine the impact of histology on prognosis as well as the impact of linitis plastica (LP) on survival. Methods: The GC database at a single institution was evaluated for patients who underwent resection from 2000 to 2015. Clinicopathologic characteristics were examined and descriptive statistics was used to analyze four groups of patients based on Lauren classification: intestinal (n=93), diffuse (n=20), diffuse with signet-ring cell features (n=57), and LP (n=40)...

BACKGROUND: Current Japanese gastric cancer treatment guidelines recommend the same endoscopic resection criteria for papillary early gastric cancer (EGC) and well-differentiated (WD) or moderately differentiated (MD) EGC. To evaluate the appropriateness of this recommendation, we compared the clinicopathological characteristics of papillary EGC with those of WD, MD, poorly differentiated (PD), and signet ring cell (SRC) EGC. METHODS: A total of 6710 patients who underwent radical gastrectomy for EGC were included...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Concerning gastric cancer (GC), nasogastric tube (NGT) is routinely employed for peri-operative decompression and palliative enteral nutrition. Additionally, we believe to have found a further application. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between April 2012 and April 2017, 96 GC patients received preoperative nasogastric lavage (GL). All samples were cytologically examined to detect the presence (GL1) or absence (GL0) of malignant cells. Data were analyzed with classificatory, staging and prognostic purpose...
