Case Report: Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms of the Biliary Tract.

08:00 EDT 1st July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Case Report: Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms of the Biliary Tract."

The present case report describes intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the biliary tract (IPMN-BT), a rare neoplasm of the biliary tract that is described as the biliary counterpart of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas (IPMN-P). The importance of appropriate diagnosis and awareness of the clinical manifestations is highlighted. IPMN-BT has a more favorable prognosis and is easier to resect than other forms of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas; therefore, early and accurate diagnosis is required for planning of the best treatment strategies for this neoplasm.

Intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) are potentially malignant intraductal epithelial neoplasms that sometimes penetrate into other organs. To the best of our knowledge, no report has yet ...

Mucinous cystic neoplasm of the liver with biliary communication: an exception to the current classification.

Cystic neoplasms of the liver are rare tumours. According to the recent WHO classification, they are classified into mucinous cystic neoplasm and intraductal papillary neoplasm based on the presence o...

Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm complicated by a gastropancreatic fistula.

One of the rare complications of low-grade pancreatic neoplasms is fistulization into nearby structures. This often does not present clinically, but is incidentally identified in patients who have bee...

Intraductal tubular papillary neoplasm (ITPN), a novel entity of pancreatic epithelial neoplasms and precursor of cancer: A case report and review of the literature.

Intraductal tubular papillary neoplasm (ITPN) displays a very rare subtype of epithelial neoplasms of the pancreas. ITPN is characterized by intraductal tubulopapillary growth and cellular dysplasia. ...

Testing for Verification Bias in Reported Malignancy Risks for Side-Branch Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms: A Simulation Modeling Approach.

The objective of our study was to test for the possibility that published malignancy risks for side-branch intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) are overestimates, likely due to verificatio...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer in the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.

Abnormal passage in any organ of the biliary tract or between biliary organs and other organs.

A cystic tumor of the ovary, containing thin, clear, yellow serous fluid and varying amounts of solid tissue, with a malignant potential several times greater than that of mucinous cystadenoma (CYSTADENOMA, MUCINOUS). It can be unilocular, parvilocular, or multilocular. It is often bilateral and papillary. The cysts may vary greatly in size. (Dorland, 27th ed; from Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972)

Diseases in any part of the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.

Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.
