Clin Endosc 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Internal Medicine, Suncheon Hospital, Suncheon, Korea.

Colon cancer is very rarely accompanied by tumor thrombosis of the superior mesenteric vein (SMV). A 46-year-old patient had been diagnosed with SMV tumor thrombosis related to colon cancer without hepatic metastasis and underwent right hemicolectomy with SMV tumor thrombectomy. Tumor thrombosis was pathologically confirmed as metastatic colon cancer. Read More

Posttransplant epithelioid inflammatory myofibroblastic sarcoma: A case report.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2019 Apr-Jun;62(2):303-305

Department of Histopathology, Apollo Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Epithelioid inflammatory myofibroblastic sarcoma (EIMS) is a rare entity and a novel variant of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT), usually seen in children and nonsmoking young adults. Their occurrence in a posttransplant setting is still rare. These tumors are characterized by prominent epithelioid morphology, large histiocytoid "Reed Sternberg"-like cell, unique pattern of ALK immuno-reactivity, and aggressive clinical behavior.

Anticancer Res 2019 Mar;39(3):1469-1478

Department of Surgery, The Jikei University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Background/aim: Prediction of local recurrence and distant metastasis is important for patients with pancreatic cancer following pancreatic resection. The aims of this study were to identify a novel prognostic score which combines distance from common hepatic artery (CHA) or superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and examine serum CA19-9 for predicting local recurrence in patients with pancreatic cancer following resection.

Patients And Methods: This retrospective study comprised 149 patients who went through elective pancreatic resection for pancreatic cancer between June 2007 and December, 2017. Read More

Portal vein thrombosis unrelated to solid malignancy is common in patients with cirrhosis, but less frequently observed in patients without cirrhosis. Prompt diagnosis and management of acute symptomatic portal vein thrombosis are essential. Failure to detect and treat thromboses can result in mesenteric ischemia, chronic cavernous transformation, and complications of portal hypertension. Read More

The Tumor Microenvironment in Neuroendocrine Tumors: Biology and Therapeutic Implications.

Neuroendocrinology 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.


Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) include a heterogeneous group of malignancies arising in the diffuse neuroendocrine system and characterized by indolent growth. Complex interactions take place among the cellular components of the microenvironment of these tumors, and the recognition of the molecular mediators of their interplay and cross-talk is crucial to discover novel therapeutic targets. NET cells overexpress a plethora of proangiogenic molecules including VEGF, PDGF, FGF, semaphorins and angiopoietins, that promote both recruitment and proliferation of endothelial cell precursors, thus resulting among the most vascularized cancers with a microvessel density 10-fold higher then epithelial tumors.

Mesenteric cysts are rare tumors, they can emerge from any part of the mesentery of the bowel from the duodenum to the rectum. Their symptomatology can mimic almost any abdominal disease making diagnosis troublesome. In some circumstances, these cysts can grow to considerable sizes making resection almost impossible since its size can compromise different structures. Read More
