A rare case of mucinous cystadenoma of the spleen in Libya.

Qatar Med J 2020 4;2020(3):41. Epub 2021 Jan 4.

Pathology Department - Benghazi Medical Center, Benghazi, Libya.

This is a case of benign mucinous cystadenoma of the spleen in Benghazi, Libya. It is the first reported in Libya and most probably the fourth in Africa. Primary mucinous cystadenoma of the spleen is an extremely unique benign cystic lesion. Only a very few number of cases have been reported. These cysts are assumed to arise from invagination of the splenic capsular epithelium or from the ectopic pancreatic tissue. We report a rare case of primary mucinous cystadenoma of the spleen without evidence of pancreatic tissue in the specimen. Despite being a rare condition, mucinous cystadenoma of the spleen should remain in the differential diagnosis of any splenic cysts.

Colonic Goblet Cell Carcinoid: Rarity of a Rarity! A Case Report and Review of Literature.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2020 Jan-Feb;115(1):102-111

Goblet cell carcinoids (GCC) are extremelyrare neuroendocrine tumours, and characterised by their unique combination of two types of cancer cells âÃÂ" neuroendocrine (carcinoid) and epithelial (adeno-carcinoma). In spite of the fact that GCC is regarded as Neuro-Endocrine Tumour (NET), it does not illicit carcinoid syndrome. GCC usually arises in the appendix and accounting for less than 14% of all appendiceal tumours.Primary extra-appendiceal GCC have been reported as stomach, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum. The paper presents a rare case of GCC of the ascending colon in a 57-year-old male.

Breast Metastasis as a Presentation of Malignant Melanoma.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2018 Sept-Oct;113(5):712-718

The majority of malignant breast lesions are primary tumors originated from breast tissue. These primary breast cancers usually metastasize to lymph nodes, lungs, bones and brain. Metastases from cancers of other organs to the breast are very rare, but have been encountered in patients with malignant melanoma, carcinoid tumors or lung carcinoma. The present paper reports a case of mammary metastasis from malignant melanoma.

Routine histopathological examination of gallbladder specimens after cholecystectomy: Is it time to change the current practice?

Turk J Surg 2018 Sep 11:1-4. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of General Surgery, St. Luke's General Hospital, Kilkenny, Ireland.

Objectives: Routine histopathological examination of all gallbladder specimens, regardless of the clinical characteristics of the patient or macroscopic aspect of the gallbladder, is the current approach to detect the presence of gallbladder carcinoma. The aim of the present study was to assess whether or not it would be safe to adopt a policy of processing only gallbladder specimens with preoperative or intraoperative suspicion for malignancy without compromising patient safety.

Material And Methods: From January 2009 to June 2017, all histopathology reports of 3423 consecutive gallbladder specimens after elective and emergency cholecystectomies were retrospectively analyzed in two university hospitals.

Results: A total of 3423 gallbladder specimens submitted for histopathological examination during the study period were included in the study. The results of histopathological examination of these gallbladder specimens showed that chronic cholecystitis was found in 2792 (81.6%), acute cholecystitis in 237 (6.9%), and cholesterolosis in 223 (6.5%) patients. Dysplasia was found in 5 (0.14%) patients, and gallbladder carcinoma was detected in 4 (0.11%) patients. All patients with gallbladder carcinoma were diagnosed either preoperatively or intraoperatively, and none of the patients with gallbladder carcinoma were diagnosed from the histopathological examination.

Conclusion: A strategy of selective approach for histopathological examination of gallbladder specimens may be safe in areas with very low incidence of gallbladder carcinoma. Such selective strategy is more cost-effective, reduces the workload of pathologists, and does not appear to compromise patient outcome.
