We have read with interest the article by Pérez Montiel CA et al., in which goblet cell adenocarcinoma (GCA) is described as a cause of acute appendicitis. Although the article is brilliant in terms of histopathological description of the appendiceal GCA, the surgical indication for right hemicolectomy should be analyzed in depth due to the great controversy that exists in the scientific literature.

Department of Visceral-, Thoracic- and Vascular Surgery, Philipps-University Marburg, Marburg, Germany.

There are few, but controversial data on the prognostic role of upfront primary tumour resection and mesenteric lymph node dissection (PTR) in patients with diffuse metastatic small intestinal neuroendocrine neoplasia (SI-NEN). Therefore, the prognostic role of PTR and other factors was determined in this setting. This retrospective cohort study included patients with stage IV SI-NETs with unresectable distant metastases without clinical and radiological signs of acute bowel obstruction or ischaemia.

Neuroendocrine tumor causing ureteral obstruction in a patient with prior ileal conduit.

Can J Urol 2021 12;28(6):10953-10955

Department of Urology, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Washington, DC, USA.

Acquired hydronephrosis following cystectomy and ileal conduit urinary diversion for bladder cancer is most commonly caused by stricture of the ureter or the ureteroenteric anastomosis. Nevertheless, malignant obstruction due to ureteral tumor recurrence must be ruled out. Neuroendocrine tumors of the ureter are extremely rare and an unlikely cause of hydronephrosis in this setting.

Controversies in appendiceal pathology: mucinous and goblet cell neoplasms.

Pathology 2022 Mar 23;54(2):167-176. Epub 2021 Nov 23.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Appendiceal goblet cell adenocarcinomas and mucinous neoplasms are uncommon compared with other epithelial tumours of the gastrointestinal tract. Both tumour types have been subjected to terminology that belies their biological risk and leads to confusion. Goblet cell adenocarcinomas display patchy staining for endocrine markers and, thus, were previously classified as goblet cell carcinoids. Read More

Highly aggressive neuroendocrine neoplasm of the ascending colon: a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2022 Apr 26;104(4):e98-e101. Epub 2021 Nov 26.

Joondalup Health Campus, Australia.

Neuroendocrine neoplasms represent a broad group of uncommon tumours, comprising neuroendocrine tumours, mixed neuroendocrine non-endocrine neoplasms and neuroendocrine carcinomas. While most neuroendocrine neoplasms are well differentiated and exhibit indolent disease biology with excellent treatment response, neuroendocrine carcinomas represent a rare subtype with much more aggressive tumour behaviour, minimal response to adjuvant therapy and extremely poor prognosis. Herein, we report the case of a 47-year-old man who presented with a phlegmonous ascending colonic mass and associated calcified ileocolic lymphadenopathy. Read More

Principles of Surgical Management of Small Intestinal NET.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Oct 30;13(21). Epub 2021 Oct 30.

Service de Chirurgie Digestive, Hôpital Edouard Herriot, Hospices Civils de Lyon, F69437 Lyon, France.

Introduction: Small-intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (siNETs) account for 25% of gastroenteropancreatic NETs. Multiple siNETs appear to develop in a limited segment of the small bowel (SB), 89% of them being located in the ileum, most often within 100 cm of the ileocecal valve (ICV). According to the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) and the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC), all localized siNETs should be considered for radical surgical resection with adequate lymphadenectomy irrespective of the absence of lymphadenopathy or mesenteric involvement.

An extremely rare finding of goblet cell carcinoid of the appendix. A case report.

Ann Ital Chir 2021 Sep 27;10. Epub 2021 Sep 27.

Goblet cell carcinoid or carcinoma (GCC) refers to an extremely rare appendiceal tumor usually diagnosed on post-operative histology as an incidental finding. Primary cancers of the vermiform appendix are quite rare, representing less than 1% of all gastrointestinal malignancies. GCCs are considered as a distinct entity of appendiceal tumors, consisting of both epithelial (glandular) and neuroendocrine elements containing goblet cells. Read More

Acute Appendicitis with Neuronal Hyperplasia and Swelling: A Novel Histologic Mimic of Appendiceal Goblet Cell Adenocarcinoma and Signet-Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma.

Int J Surg Pathol 2022 May 7;30(3):278-281. Epub 2021 Oct 7.

8789University of California Davis, School of Medicine, Sacramento, USA.

Goblet cell adenocarcinoma and signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma are well-known diagnostic pitfalls of routine appendectomy specimens. Here we present a case of acute appendicitis with prominent neuronal (ganglion cell) hyperplasia and swelling which histologically mimics goblet cell adenocarcinoma and signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma. Attention to the cytologic features of the lesional cells (absence of atypia, mitotic activity) and their close association with nerves and classic ganglion cells, along with the use of a limited panel of immunostains, ensures proper classification of this rare but striking benign process.

Appendiceal carcinoid in a pediatric patient with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome: A case report and comprehensive literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Oct;100(39):e27389

College of Medicine, QU Health, Qatar University, Doha, Qatar.

Rationale: Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS), a rare autosomal dominant disorder, is characterized by mucocutaneous pigmentations, hamartomatous polyps in the gastrointestinal tract, and a high risk of developing various malignancies. To the best of our knowledge, only 1 case of appendiceal carcinoid associated with PJS has been previously reported in the pediatric population.

Department of Endocrinology, 'I. Hatieganu' University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 400012 Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

This is a narrative review focusing on neuroendocrine neoplasia (NEN) and bone status, in terms of metastases and osteoporosis/fractures. One fifth of NEN have skeletal dissemination, this affinity being regulated by intrinsic tumor factors such as the C-X-C chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4). Bone colonization impairs the patient quality of life, representing a surrogate of reduced survival. Read More

Endoscopic submucosal dissection versus endoscopic mucosal resection for rectal carcinoid tumor. A meta-analysis and meta-regression with single-arm analysis.

J Dig Dis 2021 Oct;22(10):562-571

Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, Singapore.

Objective: As there has been so far no consensus on the best endoscopic resection technique, a meta-analysis was conducted to compare the efficacy and safety of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) for treating rectal carcinoid tumors.

Methods: MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched for articles on the treatment of rectal carcinoid tumors using ESD vs EMR published up to October 2020 for outcomes including en bloc and complete resection, margin involvement, procedure time, requirement for additional surgery, bleeding, perforation and recurrence. Risk ratio and weighted mean differences were used for a DerSimonian and Laird random effects pairwise meta-analysis. Read More
