INTRODUCTION: A potentially resectable bony metastasis in the context of oligometastatic colorectal cancer is uncommon. Bony metastases are usually considered a late event with poor prognosis and generally associated with liver and/or lung metastases. INDEX CASE: A previously healthy 33-year-old gentleman, with no family history of colorectal cancer, presented with rectal bleeding and at colonoscopy had a biopsy-proven adenocarcinoma of the rectum, 7 cm from the anal verge...

Malignant melanocytic neoplasm, usually seen in soft tissues, is rare in a visceral location and presents as a diagnostic dilemma. We present a case of pancreatic malignant melanocytic neoplasm with liver metastasis. A 58-year-old man presented with left upper abdominal swelling and loss of appetite. Imaging revealed a large mass arising from the pancreatic tail, and this was diagnosed as malignant neoplasm with melanocytic differentiation on biopsy with the possible differentials of malignant melanoma, clear cell sarcoma (CCS), and perivascular epithelioid cell neoplasm...

A 12-year-old, 3.6-kg, spayed female domestic shorthaired cat had a 2-month history of anorexia and weight loss. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed an exophytic mass originating from the jejunum with very poor central and poor peripheral contrast enhancement. On day 14, surgical resection of the jejunum and mass with 5-cm margins and an end-to-end anastomosis were performed. Histopathological examination revealed the mass was a transmural, invasive cancer showing exophytic growth and originating from the small intestinal muscle layer...

Enumeration of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) is a promising tool in the management of metastatic breast cancer (MBC). This study investigated the capturing efficiency and prognostic value of our previously reported peptide-based nanomagnetic CTC isolation system (Pep@MNPs). We counted CTCs in blood samples taken at baseline (n = 102) and later at patients' first clinical evaluation after starting firstline chemotherapy (n = 72) in a cohort of women treated for MBC. Their median follow-up was 16.3 months (range: 9...

PURPOSE: To assess the value of arterial phase imaging (ART) in the detection of liver metastases on CT compared to portal venous phase imaging (PV) alone in patients with primary sarcomas. METHODS: Multiphasic abdominal computed tomography (CT) images of patients with tissue-proven sarcomas were reviewed by five abdominal radiologists in a staggered fashion. Up to three of the largest or most conspicuous liver lesions were characterized on a four-point confidence level for PV independently, followed by PV + ART...

BACKGROUND: Primary hepatic angiosarcoma is a non-epithelial malignancy derived from sinusoidal endothelial cells, accounting for approximately 1.8% of primary hepatic malignancies. Diagnosis of primary hepatic angiosarcoma is complicated by difficulties in the qualitative radiological assessment of these tumors. Prognosis is very poor due to local recurrence and distant metastasis after liver resection or liver transplantation (LT). CASE PRESENTATION: This case report describes two patients with primary hepatic angiosarcoma who were diagnosed by histopathological examination of the explanted liver after LT...

The management of disappearing colorectal liver metastases in the postadjuvant chemotherapy setting is challenging. We describe a novel technique that facilitates laparoscopic resection of disappearing metastatic liver lesions with great precision. Details of this new technique are described in 2 patients with colorectal cancer synchronously metastatic to the liver. Both patients had small indistinct intraparenchymal liver lesions after adjuvant chemotherapy. A video displays the steps of the procedure. Both patients presented with colorectal cancer with synchronous liver metastasis...

The patient was a 73-year-old woman who underwent distalpancreatectomy for pancreas tailcancer (T3, N0, M0, stage III ). Hepatic arterialinfusion(HAI)using high-dose 5-fluorouracil(5-FU)(6,000mg/week)was performed 35 days after curative resection to prevent liver metastases. Although chemotherapy with gemcitabine(GEM)was administered for 2 weeks, the patient was aware of a nodule(1 cm in diameter)on the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. Resection of the cutaneous mass was performed and histological findings revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma from the pancreas cancer...

The patient was a 73-year-old man. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a type 3 tumor in the antrum of the stomach. Preoperative CT imaging showed multiple liver metastases(S2, S3, S4, S6, S7). We administered 2 courses of chemotherapy( XP therapy)for the unresectable gastric cancer; the impact of the neoadjuvant therapy was PR. We performed distal gastrectomy and D2 dissection. After gastric resection, we administered an additional 3 courses of XP therapy. Unfortunately, new lesions of liver metastases were recurrent at S5 and S8...

There are few reports that describe the efficacy of proton beam therapy for lymph node metastasis of recurrent rectal cancer, and carbon ion radiotherapy yields higher local tumor control rates. Proton beam therapy needs a longer treatment period but is less toxic to adjacent healthy organs compared to carbon ion radiotherapy. Here we report an 85-year-old man who underwent curative surgery for rectal and sigmoid cancer at the age of 76 years. After 4 years and 2 months, he had liver metastases at S3 and S8, both of which were resected...

Pathological response to preoperative chemotherapy was recently found to be correlated with improved survival and has been proposed as a new outcome end-point following resection of liver metastases from colorectal cancer (CRC). It was demonstrated that, particularly after therapy with bevacizumab, CRC liver metastases decreased in size and underwent distinct morphological changes on computed tomography (CT). However, morphological changes in response to treatment with regorafenib have not yet been reported...

Choriocarcinoma is a human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG)-secreting tumor that comprises vascular channels. It has a tendency for widespread metastasis, common sites for which include the lung, vagina, brain, liver, bone, intestine, and kidney. We describe a 30-year-old female who presented with hepatitis-like features and bilateral diminution of vision, and subsequently developed hemothorax and hemoperitoneum-all rare and seemingly unrelated manifestations which were finally attributable to metastases from gestational choriocarcinoma...

REVIEW
Nelson Chen, Kellee Slater
BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumours (SFT) are neoplasms of mesenchymal origin that predominantly arise from the pleura. SFT of the liver (SFTL) are a rare occurrence with little number of cases reported in English literature. Malignant cases of hepatic SFT are an even rarer occurrence. For this reason, the prognostic evaluation of SFTLs is unknown and difficult to measure. METHODS: A search on English literature on "Solitary Fibrous Tumour of the Liver" was conducted on common search engines (PubMed, Google)...

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a congenital condition consisting of a mirror image of transposition of the abdominal and thoracic organs occurring in about 1:5000 to 1:10 000 adults. We report on a 60-year-old male with a single colorectal liver metastasis in the Segment 7. The patients underwent a totally laparoscopic sub-segmentectomy. Intraoperative approach on a reverse posterior segment was difficult because of left-sided position of the liver. Postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged after 5 days...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic biliary drainage (EBD) is the mainstay treatment for inoperable malignant distal biliary obstruction (MDBO). Some authorities suggest that metallic stents are more cost-effective than plastic stents in patients with expected survival of at least 6 months. However, studies attempting to define the predictive factors for such survival times are limited. This study aims to develop a scoring system for predicting a survival time of <24 weeks in these patients...
