Problematic lesions in cirrhotic liver mimicking hepatocellular carcinoma.

Eur Radiol 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Radiology, Research Institute of Radiological Science, Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 50-1 Yonsei-ro, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, 03722, South Korea.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a unique malignancy that can be diagnosed and treated based on non-invasive imaging criteria without histological confirmation in cirrhotic patients, which opens the possibility, although rare, of false-positive diagnosis of the tumor. This brief review illustrates benign and non-HCC malignant lesions arising in cirrhotic liver that could have been erroneously diagnosed as HCC based on imaging criteria: focal nodular hyperplasia-like nodules, serum amyloid A-positive nodules, dysplastic nodules, spontaneously regressing lesions, combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, sarcomatoid carcinoma, lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma, hepatoblastoma, and metastatic adenocarcinoma. To determine the potential differences in clinical courses and post-treatment outcome of HCC diagnosed by imaging alone and those histologically, we suggest the terms HCCi and HCCp to distinguish between lesions that are diagnosed as HCC based on imaging alone from those diagnosed based on pathological examination, respectively.

A Case of Intracardiac Invasion of Hepatoblastoma Diagnosed With Point-of-Care Ultrasound.

Pediatr Emerg Care 2018 Oct;34(10):749-750

From the Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine, Kobe Children's Hospital, Kobe City, Hyogo, Japan.

Ultrasonography can be useful in the evaluation of children with abdominal complaints and may be the initial imaging modality in patients presenting with a newly recognized abdominal mass. Hepatoblastoma is an uncommon cause of acute abdominal pain in children and can rarely metastasize to the heart through vascular invasion. We report a case in which a 4-year-old girl who presented to the emergency department with abdominal pain promptly underwent point-of-care ultrasound and was subsequently diagnosed with intracardiac invasion of an abdominal tumor.

Diagnosis, histopathologic correlation and management of hepatoblastoma: What the radiologist needs to know.

Clin Imaging 2018 Nov - Dec;52:273-279. Epub 2018 Aug 18.

Department of Radiology, Seattle Children's Hospital, Seattle, WA 98105, United States.

Hepatoblastomas are complex pediatric tumors with several pathological subtypes, some of which demonstrate differing imaging features and portend varying prognosis. The radiologist plays a major role not only in the pre-surgical evaluation and baseline staging of the tumor, but also in guiding management and evaluating prognosis based on the PRETEXT (pretreatment extent of tumor) classification. We discuss the pathology, imaging features, and baseline evaluation, with a focus on the role of the radiologist in the management of these tumors. Read More

Magnetic resonance imaging features of common focal liver lesions in children.

Authors:
Prakash M Masand

Pediatr Radiol 2018 08 4;48(9):1234-1244. Epub 2018 Aug 4.

Cardiovascular Imaging, Department of Pediatric Radiology, Texas Children's Hospital, 6701 Fannin St., Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is commonly used to characterize focal liver masses in the pediatric population. MRI is the preferred modality because of its superior contrast resolution and utility for obtaining functional sequences such as diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). MR exams performed with a hepatocyte-specific gadolinium-based contrast agent can characterize focal liver lesions, which helps in differentiating a common benign entity such as focal nodular hyperplasia from other liver pathology when the background liver is normal.

Pediatric hepatic rhabdoid tumor: A rare cause of abdominal mass in children.

Radiol Case Rep 2018 Jun 10;13(3):724-727. Epub 2018 May 10.

Division of Pediatric Radiology, Department of Radiology, University of Virginia Health System, University Hospital, First Floor,1215 Lee St., Charlottesville, VA, 22908.

Pediatric hepatic rhabdoid tumors are rare tumors of the liver, with few cases reported in the literature. These aggressive tumors can be difficult to differentiate from hepatoblastomas on imaging alone, and surgical biopsy combined with special immunohistochemical stains can assist in differentiating these 2 tumor types. We present a case of hepatic rhabdoid tumor in a 7-month-old female infant, which was originally thought to be a hepatoblastoma; however, using BAF47 staining for INI-1 we were able to diagnose a rhabdoid tumor and affect the patient's medical oncologic therapy.

1 Department of Pediatric Surgery, Keio University School of Medicine , Tokyo, Japan .

Background: The curability of hepatoblastoma (HB) largely depends on the achievement of radical surgical resection, even for metastatic tumors. However, the extension of the metastatic tumor when viewed through an endoscope with the conventional white-light mode is often unclear. Advancements in imaging technology utilizing indocyanine green (ICG) have facilitated precise resection of metastatic HBs, owing to the longer retention of ICG in such lesions than in other normal tissues.

Pediatr Radiol 2018 04 2;48(4):565-580. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Department of Radiology, Lucille Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA.

Hepatoblastoma and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are the most common pediatric liver malignancies, with hepatoblastoma occurring more commonly in younger children and HCC occurring more commonly in older children and adolescents. Although surgical resection (including transplant when necessary) and systemic chemotherapy have improved overall survival rate for hepatoblastoma to approximately 80% from 30%, a number of children with this tumor type are not eligible for operative treatment. In contradistinction, pediatric HCC continues to carry a dismal prognosis with an overall 5-year survival rate of 30%. Read More

Sci Rep 2017 Dec 19;7(1):17751. Epub 2017 Dec 19.

Divisions of Pediatric Surgery and Surgical Research, Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Texas Children's Surgical Oncology Program, Texas Children's Liver Tumor Program, Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Currently, preclinical testing of therapies for hepatoblastoma (HB) is limited to subcutaneous and intrasplenic xenograft models that do not recapitulate the hepatic tumors seen in patients. We hypothesized that injection of HB cell lines into the livers of mice would result in liver tumors that resemble their clinical counterparts. HepG2 and Huh-6 HB cell lines were injected, and tumor growth was monitored with bioluminescence imaging (BLI) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Read More

Liver Cancer in Tyrosinemia Type 1.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2017 ;959:101-109

Beatrix Children's Hospital, Division of Metabolic Diseases, University of Groningen, University Medical Center of Groningen, HPC CA33, Antwoordnummer 333, 9700 VB, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Hereditary Tyrosinemia type I (HT1) is clinically mainly characterised by severe liver disease. Most patients present in their first months of life with liver failure, but others can present later with issues of compensated cirrhosis, renal tubulopathy or acute intermittent porphyria. If patients survive the acute phase with liver failure or if they present later with compensated cirrhosis, they often develop hepatocellular carcinoma early but also later in life. Read More

Measurement of local temperature increments induced by cultured HepG2 cells with micro-thermocouples in a thermally stabilized system.

Sci Rep 2017 05 11;7(1):1721. Epub 2017 May 11.

Key Laboratory for the Physics & Chemistry of Nanodevices, and Department of Electronics, Peking University, Beijing, 100871, P. R. China.

To monitor the temperature distribution of a cell and its changes under varied conditions is currently a technical challenge. A variety of non-contact methods used for measuring cellular temperature have been developed, where changes of local temperature at cell-level and sub-cell-level are indirectly calculated through the changes in intensity, band-shape, bandwidth, lifetime or polarization anisotropy of the fluorescence spectra recorded from the nano-sized fluorescent materials pre-injected into the target cell. Unfortunately, the optical properties of the fluorescent nano-materials may be affected by complicated intracellular environment, leading to unexpected measurement errors and controversial arguments.

1 Queensland Paediatric Cardiac Services, Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, Brisbane, Australia.

Hepatoblastoma is very uncommon in children, and intracardiac extension is rare. The SIOPEL-4 regime for metastatic hepatoblastoma has extended the surgical options with good results. We successfully treated a boy aged 2 years and 9 months with hepatoblastoma, using a multidisciplinary surgical strategy involving an extended left hepatectomy, left adrenalectomy, biopsy of the paraaortic and coeliac lymph nodes, and resection of the inferior vena caval-right atrial extension of the hepatoblastoma, under cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermia.

Clin Imaging 2017 Jul - Aug;44:33-37. Epub 2017 Apr 6.

Department of Radiology, Seattle Children's Hospital, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, United States. Electronic address:

Background: Hepatoblastoma is the most common hepatic malignancy occurring in the pediatric population. Intratumoral cellular behavior varies, and the small-cell undifferentiated histopathology carries a poorer prognosis than other tissue subtypes. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is recommended for this tumor subtype prior to surgical resection in most cases. Read More

Hepatocellular Carcinoma in Fanconi-Bickel Syndrome.

Pediatr Dev Pathol 2018 Jan-Feb;21(1):84-90. Epub 2017 Apr 6.

1 Department of Pathology, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Fanconi-Bickel syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder due to mutations in the facilitative glucose transporter 2 ( GLUT2 or SLC2A2) gene resulting in excessive glycogen storage predominantly in the liver and kidney. Previous case reports of this condition have described liver biopsies with glycogen storage and variable steatosis and/or fibrosis. Unlike in other types of glycogen storage disease, hepatocellular adenomas and carcinomas have not been described to date in this syndrome. Read More
