BACKGROUND: Distinguishing perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC) from benign forms of sclerosing cholangitis affecting the hilar bile ducts is challenging, since histological confirmation of PHC is difficult to obtain and accurate non-invasive diagnostic tests are not available. IgG4-associated cholangitis (IAC), an imitator of PHC, may present with clinical and radiographical signs of PHC. IAC can be accurately diagnosed with a novel qPCR test. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and long-term activity of IAC in patients resected for PHC in a single tertiary center over a period of 30 years...

Infantile choriocarcinoma (ICC) is a rare, highly malignant form of gestational trophoblastic neoplasia. Rapid diagnosis and initiation of treatment are paramount in reaching a successful outcome. Patients with these tumors typically present with a triad of anemia, hepatomegaly, and precocious puberty. Cutaneous manifestations of ICC are extraordinarily rare with few documented cases. Here, we describe a male neonate who presented to our Dermatology clinic with a rapidly growing, markedly vascular glabellar mass associated with abnormal laboratory values suggestive of Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon...

The carcinogenicity of quinoline was examined by administrating quinoline in the drinking water to groups of 50 F344/DuCrj rats and 50 Crj: BDF1 mice of each sex. In rats, the doses of quinoline were 0, 200, 400, and 800 ppm for males and 0, 150, 300, and 600 ppm for females. In male rats, administration of quinoline was terminated at week 96 due to high mortality caused by tumors. There were significant increases of hepatocellular adenomas, hepatocellular carcinomas, hepatocellular adenomas and/or carcinomas (combined), and liver hemangiomas, hemangiosarcomas, hemangiomas and/or hemangiosarcomas (combined) in both male and female rats, and nasal esthesioneuroepitheliomas and sarcoma NOS (not otherwise specified) in males...

Liver hemangiomas are the most common benign primary tumors of the liver. Due to their high prevalence, incidental finding of hemangiomas during radiological workup of oncologic patients is not uncommon. We present the case of a patient diagnosed of an ovarian immature teratoma and hepatic lesions with typical radiological appearance of hemangiomas that decreased in size during adjuvant chemotherapy with BEP regimen (cisplatin, etoposide and bleomycin). Chemotherapy-induced shrinkage of hepatic hemangiomas can mimic the response of liver metastases to chemotherapy and may induce erroneous interpretations...

RATIONALE: Hemangioma of the liver is a benign hepatic tumor, more common in women than in men, which is typically asymptomatic, solitary, and incidentally discovered. Atypical hemangioma is a variant of hepatic hemangioma with atypical imaging finding features on CT and MRI that can be confused with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and mixed hepatocellular cholangiocarcinoma (HCC-CC). PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of atypical hepatic hemangioma mimicking HCC-CC: A 59-year-old man was referred to our hospital for a hepatic lesion that was 4...

RATIONALE: Hepatic hemangioma, a benign liver tumor, can rarely spontaneously rupture and hemorrhage, which is then associated with significant mortality. The diagnosis of internal hemorrhage is challenging and the management is disputed. PATIENT CONCERNS: We describe the case of a 52-year-old female patient with chief complaints of fever and anemia, with no history of recent trauma. DIAGNOSES: Ultrasound suggested the possibility of a liver abscess and computed tomography (CT) examination revealed a giant space occupying lesion (SOL) (approximately 16 cm) in the right hepatic lobe, indicating a hepatic tumor or abscess...

Hepatic small vessel neoplasm (HSVN) is a recently described vascular neoplasm of the adult liver. The neoplastic cells are positive for markers of vascular lineage (CD31, CD34, FLI-1). The distinctive morphology and infiltrative borders separate HSVN from benign vascular tumors such as cavernous hemangioma, while lack of atypical morphologic features, low to absent mitotic activity and low proliferation index distinguish it from malignant vascular tumors such as epithelioid hemangioendothelioma and angiosarcoma...

It remains unclear if single incision laparoscopic liver surgery is superior to standard multiport resections and in what regard patients might benefit from this approach. We retrospectively analyzed the course of all patients undergoing laparoscopic left lateral sectionectomy at our center between 2009 and 2017. In total, 11 single incision and 31 multiport left lateral sectionectomies were performed at our center between July 2009 and May 2017. Six patients were excluded due to multivisceral resections. Indications included adenoma (n = 7 vs n = 2), focal nodular hyperplasia (n = 4 vs n = 3), hepatocellular carcinoma (n = 4 vs n = 4), colorectal liver metastasis (n = 4 vs n = 0), noncolorectal metastasis (n = 2 vs n = 1), hemangioma (n = 3 vs n = 0), abscess (n = 1 vs n = 0), and cysts (n = 1 vs n = 0)...
