Critical diagnostic delay associated with unusual presentation of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with orbital metastases: a case report.

Ann Palliat Med 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine, University of Bologna, Sant'Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, Bologna, Italy.

Orbital metastases are an extremely rare finding in patients with hepatocarcinoma (HCC), especially as its first presentation. Therefore, the risk of misdiagnosis is high, as well as that of drastic delays of the therapeutic algorithm. Here we report a 71-year-old man presenting with orbital metastases as the initial sign of HCC, whose initial misdiagnosis led to the impossibility to start life-saving cancer treatment. Read More

Hepatectomy Followed by Adjuvant Chemotherapy with 3-Month Capecitabine Plus Oxaliplatin for Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases.

Oncologist 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Clinical Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, Kagawa University, Kagawa, Japan.

Lessons Learned: Three-month adjuvant capecitabine plus oxaliplatin in combination (CAPOX) appeared to reduce recurrence, with mild toxicity in postcurative resection of colorectal cancer liver metastases (CLM). Recurrence in patients who underwent the 3-month adjuvant CAPOX after resection of CLM was most commonly at extrahepatic sites.

Background: The role of neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy in the management of initially resectable colorectal cancer liver metastases (CLM) is still unclear. Read More

5' Amplification in Neuroblastoma: A Case Report.

Case Rep Oncol 2021 Jan-Apr;14(1):585-591. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Institute for Genomic Medicine, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, USA.

Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in infants younger than 12 months of age, occurring with an incidence of 1 in 100,000 children. The clinical outcome of neuroblastoma ranges from spontaneous regression to treatment-resistant progression and/or metastasis, and accounts for 8-10% of childhood cancer deaths. Segmental chromosomal aberrations, as well as and amplification, are among factors contributing to an unfavorable genomic profile and high-risk disease classification. Read More

Therapeutic implications of B-RAF mutations in colorectal cancer.

J Visc Surg 2021 May 8. Epub 2021 May 8.

Department of Digestive Surgery and Transplantation, Claude Huriez Hospital, CHRU de Lille, Lille Université Nord de France, Lille, France. Electronic address:

Colorectal cancers (CRC) with B-RAF mutation carry a particularly poor prognosis. In this context, the value of first-line intensified chemotherapy associated with an anti-VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor) to treat metastatic CRC has recently been called into question. In patients with mutated B-RAF, the efficacy of first-line anti-EGFR (Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor) associated with chemotherapy for treatment of metastatic CRC is uncertain while that of anti-VEGF has been shown to be effective.

The liver metastatic niche: modelling the extracellular matrix in metastasis.

Dis Model Mech 2021 Apr 15;14(4). Epub 2021 Apr 15.

CRUK Beatson Institute, Switchback Road, Bearsden, Glasgow G61 1BD, UK.

Dissemination of malignant cells from primary tumours to metastatic sites is a key step in cancer progression. Disseminated tumour cells preferentially settle in specific target organs, and the success of such metastases depends on dynamic interactions between cancer cells and the microenvironments they encounter at secondary sites. Two emerging concepts concerning the biology of metastasis are that organ-specific microenvironments influence the fate of disseminated cancer cells, and that cancer cell-extracellular matrix interactions have important roles at all stages of the metastatic cascade.

An unusual case of aggressive malignant spread of epithelioid hemangioendothelioma.

Rare Tumors 2021 20;13:20363613211010858. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Oncology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a rare vascular neoplasm which typically originates from liver, lung, or bone.
