Intraductal papillary growth of liver metastasis originating from colon carcinoma in the bile duct: Report of a case.
Summary of "Intraductal papillary growth of liver metastasis originating from colon carcinoma in the bile duct: Report of a case."
Morphologically, liver metastases from colorectal carcinoma usually form as nodular tumor masses, whereas intraductal papillary growth in the bile duct is rare. A 65-year-old man underwent right hemicolectomy for advanced colon carcinoma, and histology of the primary carcinoma confirmed moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma with subserosal invasion, no vascular infiltration, and no lymph node metastasis. A liver tumor was found in the right paramedian Glisson pedicle and intraductal growth of cholangiocarcinoma was seen on imaging. We performed right hepatectomy and macroscopically, the resected specimen contained a growth in the bile duct lumen similar to cholangiocarcinoma. Histological examination revealed intraductal papillary proliferation of well-differentiated adenocarcinoma without vascular infiltration or lymph node metastasis in the hepatic hilum. Immunohistochemical staining revealed that the tumor cells were negative for cytokeratin-7 and positive for cytokeratin-20. Based on these findings, liver metastasis from colon carcinoma was diagnosed. Liver metastasis from colorectal carcinoma rarely arises as intraductal papillary growth in the bile duct, but the possibility of liver metastases with unusual morphology must be borne in mind for patients with a history of carcinoma in the digestive tract.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the RECTUM. It includes the ASCENDING COLON; the TRANSVERSE COLON; the DESCENDING COLON; and the SIGMOID COLON.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the TRANSVERSE COLON. It passes cephalad from the cecum to the caudal surface of the right lobe of the LIVER where it bends sharply to the left, forming the right colic flexure.
Carcinoma, Papillary, Follicular
A thyroid neoplasm of mixed papillary and follicular arrangement. Its biological behavior and prognosis is the same as that of a papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1271)
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between ASCENDING COLON and DESCENDING COLON. It passes from the RIGHT COLIC FLEXURE across the ABDOMEN, then turns sharply at the left colonic flexure into the descending colon.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between TRANSVERSE COLON and the SIGMOID COLON.
Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm is characterized by cystically dilated main and/or branch pancreatic duct with mucus. According to the degree of atypia, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm...
PURPOSE: The clinicopathological features of colon cancer differ between proximal and distal sites; however, the influence of tumor location on liver metastasis has not been full...
Acinar cell carcinoma (ACC) is a rare pancreatic exocrine neoplasm characterized by a huge, exophytic well-circumscribed hypovascular mass. There has been several reports describing intraductal and pa...
We report a rare case of an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) originating from a jejunal heterotopic pancreas, found incidentally during surgery. A 75-year-old woman was referred to our d...
BACKGROUND: The local and systemic regulation of the immune system may play important roles in the process of liver metastasis of colorectal carcinoma. The aim of this study was to establish a reprodu...
1. To assess the effect of RG1068 at a dose of 0.2 mcg/kg intravenously (IV) on the diameter of the pancreatic duct when used during Magnetic Resonance Pancreatography 2. To demons...
The purpose of the study is to prove the hypothesis that pancreas PET-CT can differentiate duct involved IPMN with malignancy from duct involved non-malignant IPMN.
Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas (IPMN) are increasingly recognized in clinical practice. They represent a unique clinicopathologic entity that is characterized by...
This is a multicentre, open labeled, controlled phase study designed to assess effectiveness of chemoembolization with LC Beads, both with and without systemic chemotherapy, in the treatme...
The purpose of this study is to prospectively analyze the incidence of occult lateral neck metastasis (LNM) and to elucidate the factors that predict LNM in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PT...
