Intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) is a variant type of the bile duct carcinoma characterized by intraductal growth. IPNB is also recognized as a precursor of invasive carcinoma. We describe herein an extremely rare case of IPNB arising from the cystic duct. A 68-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for investigation of epigastralgia and abnormal levels of biliary tract enzyme. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a mass lesion spreading from the cystic duct to the upper-middle bile duct...

Mucobilia is a rare pathologic condition characterized by the abnormal secretion and accumulation of abundant mucus within the biliary tree. It is usually seen in association with mucin-producing hepatobiliary and pancreatic tumors. Neoplastic transformation of these tumors can range from low-grade dysplasia to invasive adenocarcinoma. Mucobilia usually presents with signs and symptoms of biliary obstruction, which may span from jaundice to cholangitis with progression to septic complications in severe cases...

A 64-year-old woman with upper abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting was admitted. The magnetic resonance imaging revealed marked dilation and "crowding" of the segment 4 bile ducts with an area suspicious for a stone or tumor. Ultrasonography-guided percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography revealed multiple filling defects in the segment 4 bile ducts, the left and common hepatic ducts. A left hepatectomy and cholecystectomy was performed. Dilated bile ducts containing mucinous material and a mass in the cystically dilated bile ducts of segment 4 were detected in the gross examination...

A cohort of patients with intraductal growth-type intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IG-ICC) and its precursor lesions, collectively termed intraductal papillary neoplasm of the liver (IPNL), was characterized with respect to demographics, clinical manifestations, perioperative management, long-term survival, and molecular features associated with carcinogenesis. A total of 122 patients with IPNL types 1 through 4, 108 patients with non-IG-ICC and 210 patients with hepatolithiasis alone were studied. Expression of CDX2, TFF1, MUC1, MUC2, MUC5AC, EGFR, and p53 was determined by using immunohistochemistry...

OBJECTIVE: Mucin-producing cholangiocarcinoma (MPCC) is an uncommon biliary tract malignancy. This retrospective study was designed to investigate the clinical presentations, associated diseases, the value of tumor markers, and treatment and prognosis of MPCC. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 24 MPCC cases (7 M, 17 F) from 132 histopathology-proven cholangiocarcinoma patients seen between 1988 and 2003. MPCC and non-mucin-producing cholangiocarcinoma (non-MPCC) were compared...

Peripheral cholangiocarcinoma (PCC) is clinically challenging because patients typically do not present until the disease is relatively advanced. Three-year to 5-year survival rates even with resection thus remain dismal. This study aimed to determine the clinicopathological factors for predicting overall survival longer than 5 years in PCC patients treated with hepatectomy. From 1977 to 1997, the clinicopatholgical features of 11 PCC patients who underwent hepatectomy with long-term overall survival (group A) were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral cholangiocarcinoma (PCC) can be grossly classified into mass-forming, periductal-infiltrating, and intraductal papillary (IP) types. Information on IP-PCC patients undergoing hepatectomy is sparse because of the small number of cases. METHODS: The clinical features of 40 IP-PCC patients undergoing hepatectomy between 1977 and 2000 were reviewed. The clinical features of 94 PCC patients without IP growth undergoing hepatectomy were used for comparison...

Intraductal papillary growth of neoplastic biliary epithelia with a fine fibrovascular stalk (intraductal papillary neoplasia of liver [IPN-L]) resembling intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of pancreas is occasionally associated with hepatolithiasis. In this study, 136 cases of hepatolithiasis in Taiwan, between January 1998 and March 2000, and an additional 21 cases of IPN-L before December 1998, were examined histologically. IPN-L was found in 41 of 136 hepatolithiasis cases (30.1%). Sixty-two IPN-L cases (42 women and 20 men; age range, 59...

Mucobilia is a rare condition characterized by the accumulation of abundant mucus within the intra- or extrahepatic biliary tree. A variety of hepatobiliary and pancreatic neoplasms are mucin producing and have been associated with the development of mucobilia including biliary mucinosis, biliary papillomatosis, mucin-producing cholangiocarcinoma (MPCC), or cystic neoplasms of the pancreas or biliary tree (cystadenoma or cystadenocarcinoma). We report the case of 46 year-old male with a biliary cystadenocarcinoma of the caudate lobe which resulted in chronic biliary obstruction and relapsing cholangitis...

Cholangiocarcinoma is the second most common primary tumor of the liver after hepatocellular carcinoma and accounts for 5 to 25% of primary hepatic malignancies. Patients with intrahepatic or peripheral cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) most often present at an advanced stage leading to a poor prognosis. A review of the literature has produced only 10 patients who have survived over five years. We review the case of a young woman with a large cholangiocarcinoma, who has been disease free for eight years. The patient was treated with a right hepatic lobectomy, and received 4 cycles of 5-fluorouracil and levamisole postoperatively...

OBJECTIVE: We present the clinical features and outcomes of 22 surgically treated and histopathology-proven cases of mucin-producing cholangiocellular carcinoma (MPCCC). BACKGROUND: Cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCC) is an uncommon malignancy. Unlike hepatocellular carcinoma, it is difficult to set up a high-risk group, and a specific tumor marker has yet to be found. Chronic liver disease is usually not found to be associated with CCC. Information about patients with MPCCC is limited, and the frequency of MPCCC in all patients with CCC has not been reported...
