Mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine carcinoma of gallbladder: case report.

World J Surg Oncol 2019 Mar 22;17(1):55. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, Charles University, 301 00, Pilsen, Czech Republic.

Background: Mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine tumors (MINEN) of the gallbladder are extremely rare; indeed, the English expert literature reports a mere handful of case reports and case series on this topic. According to the WHO classification of 2010, MINEN are considered to be tumors consisting of two major components, neuroendocrine and non-neuroendocrine, each of which hosts at least 30% of the total cellular population. To date, the etiology and pathogenesis of MINEN have not been precisely determined and the non-specific symptoms generally result in late diagnosis (mainly in the terminal stages of the condition) and contribute to the generally poor prognosis.

Pharmacologic IL-6Rα inhibition in cholangiocarcinoma promotes cancer cell growth and survival.

Biochim Biophys Acta Mol Basis Dis 2019 Feb 9;1865(2):308-321. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Diagnostic & Research Center for Molecular BioMedicine, Institute of Pathology, Medical University of Graz, Austria; Center for Biomarker Research in Medicine, Graz, Austria; Department of Pathology, Medical Faculty, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany. Electronic address:

Biliary tract cancer (BTC) represents a malignant tumor of the biliary tract including cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) and the carcinoma of the gallbladder (GBC) with a 5-year survival rate between 5 and 18% due to late diagnosis and rapid disease progression. Chronic inflammation is one of the main risk factors for CCA and GBC in particular. IL-6, as a mediator of inflammation, can act through a membrane-bound receptor alpha-chain (mIL-6R, "IL-6 classic signaling") or via soluble forms (sIL-6R, "IL-6 trans-signaling"). Read More

Dysplasia in Gallbladder: What Should We Do?

J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Apr 13;23(4):686-689. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Department of Pathology and Immunology, Washington University in St. Louis, 660 S. Euclid Ave, CB: 8118, St. Louis, MO, 63110, USA.

Introduction: On occasional cholecystectomies, pathologists encounter incidental dysplasia in the gallbladder mucosa in the sections submitted per protocol for histologic examination. If dysplasia is identified, additional sections are taken and/or the gallbladder is entirely submitted to rule out underlying adenocarcinoma. The aim of our study was to assess the incidence of subsequent identification of invasive adenocarcinoma on additional sections, after an incidentally detected dysplasia was noted on a routine cholecystectomy section.

Department of Surgery, Kangbuk Samsung Hospital, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, 29 Saemunan-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03181, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Background And Objective: Although the incidence of carcinoma is not high in gallbladder polyps, it is essential to diagnose gallbladder cancer at an early stage to achieve a good therapeutic outcome. Therefore, the aim of this study was to define the characteristics of gallbladder polyps to establish sound criteria for surgical indications.

Methods: In the current study, data from 516 patients with gallbladder polyps who underwent cholecystectomy were reviewed to correlate clinical features with histopathologic findings and identify risk factors with receiver-operating characteristic curves (ROCs). Read More

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound findings of gallbladder adenocarcinoma with sarcomatoid carcinoma accompanied by intrahepatic metastasis: A case report and literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 May;97(21):e10773

Department of Ultrasound, The West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Rationale: Gallbladder adenocarcinoma is the most common subtype of malignant tumor in gallbladder carcinoma; its incidence is quite low. Preoperative diagnosis of gallbladder adenocarcinoma appears to be very difficult because they are normally asymptomatic and are often found incidentally. Adenocarcinoma with sarcomatoid carcinoma of gallbladder is exceedingly rare with no case reported in the literature to date. Read More

Radiology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, 132 South 10th Street, Suite 1087, Main Building, Philadelphia, PA, 19107, USA.

Few things in radiology are "pathognomonic" in their appearance or presentation. However, having an awareness of those findings which are specific to a certain entity is important when interpreting imaging studies. These classic findings can be identified with many imaging modalities, but no modality provides as many recognizable observations as an MRI. Read More
