Intrahepatic Biliary Cystadenoma With Colonic Adenomatous Polyps in a Patient With Chronic Hepatitis B: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2021 16;8:760607. Epub 2021 Dec 16.

Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery II, Zhujiang Hospital, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Biliary cystadenomas are rare cystic tumors of the bile duct system that are mostly benign but also have the possibility of malignant transformation. Biliary cystadenomas mostly occur in the intrahepatic bile ducts and are more common in middle-aged women. Due to non-specific radiology, preoperative diagnosis is difficult and is usually performed by postoperative pathology. Read More

A Novel Treatment for Metastatic Serous Cystadenocarcinoma Using a Microwave Ablation: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Pancreas 2021 03;50(3):434-440

From the Division of Surgical Oncology, Department of Surgery.

Abstract: The incidence of pancreatic cystic neoplasms has grown because of increased detection. Among these lesions, serous cystadenoma was traditionally thought to be universally benign and indolent. However, there is an exceedingly rare malignant variant of serous cystadenoma known as serous cystadenocarcinoma (SCAC) that can exhibit local invasion into adjacent structures, hepatic implants, and metastatic spread to the abdominal viscera.
