Appendiceal neurofibroma with low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm in neurofibromatosis type 1 patient: A case report.

Neurofibromas are a characteristic of the autosomal dominant disorder Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), also known as von Recklinghausen's disease. Appendiceal neurofibromas are extremely rare, and low-...

Review: Pathology and Its Clinical Relevance of Mucinous Appendiceal Neoplasms and Pseudomyxoma Peritonei.

Until recently, many classifications existed for the terminology and histopathologic classification of appendiceal mucinous neoplasms, mucinous appendiceal adenocarcinomas, and pseudomyxoma peritonei ...

Evaluation of appendiceal mucinous neoplasms with a new classification system and literature review.

Appendiceal mucinous neoplasms constitute a diagnostic spectrum ranging from adenoma to mucinous adenocarcinoma. To date, many classification systems have been proposed to reflect the histomorphologic...

Coexistence of low-grade mucinous neoplasm and carcinoid (collision tumor) within multiple appendiceal diverticula: A case report.

Neoplasms of the appendix are very rare. They usually show glandular or neuroendocrine differentiation, and when they both occur in the same area, it is called a "collision tumor." Low-grade mucinous ...

Appendiceal neoplasm risk associated with complicated acute appendicitis-a population based study.

Appendiceal tumors are rare, but high neoplasm rates have been reported at interval appendectomy after periappendicular abscess. Non-operative management of uncomplicated acute appendicitis has shown ...

Clinical Trials [3604 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Nivolumab and Ipilimumab in Mucinous Colorectal and Appendiceal Tumors

This is a single-arm phase II study of twenty-one subjects with mucinous adenocarcinoma of the colon, rectum, or appendix with prior systemic therapy with a fluoropyrimidine, oxaliplatin, ...

Intra-operative Pancreatoscopy in Patients With IPMN

To demonstrate the added value of intraoperative pancreatoscopy in patients undergoing partial pancreatic resection for the treatment of Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm (IPMN) as i...

Positron Emission Tomography-computed Tomography (PET-CT) for Main & Branch Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm

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.

Safety and Effectiveness of tPA in Intra-Abdominal Abscesses

To determine if instillation of tissue plasminogen activator into a percutaneously drained intraabdominal abscess cavity results in faster resolution of the abscess compared to normal stan...

LCI-GI-APX-NIN-001: Nintedanib in Metastatic Appendiceal Carcinoma

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the disease control rate of subjects with metastatic appendiceal cancer for whom initial fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy has failed. Based on p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.

An abscess located in the abdominal cavity, i.e., the cavity between the diaphragm above and the pelvis below. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Accumulation of purulent EXUDATES beneath the DIAPHRAGM, also known as upper abdominal abscess. It is usually associated with PERITONITIS or postoperative infections.

A condition characterized by poorly-circumscribed gelatinous masses filled with malignant mucin-secreting cells. Forty-five percent of pseudomyxomas arise from the ovary, usually in a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma (CYSTADENOCARCINOMA, MUCINOUS), which has prognostic significance. Pseudomyxoma peritonei must be differentiated from mucinous spillage into the peritoneum by a benign mucocele of the appendix. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
