Isolated Pancreatic Metastasis From Squamous Cell Lung Cancer Mimicking Primary Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma on FDG PET/CT.

Summary of "Isolated Pancreatic Metastasis From Squamous Cell Lung Cancer Mimicking Primary Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma on FDG PET/CT."

Isolated pancreatic metastasis from lung cancer is rare. We present a case of isolated pancreatic metastasis from squamous cell lung cancer. The pancreatic tumor showed hypovascularity on enhanced MRI and intense FDG uptake on FDG PET/CT mimicking primary pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. This case indicates pancreatic metastasis should be considered as a differential diagnosis in patients with a history of extrapancreatic cancer and hypermetabolic pancreatic lesion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).

Ubiquitous macromolecules associated with the cell surface and extracellular matrix of a wide range of cells of vertebrate and invertebrate tissues. They are essential cofactors in cell-matrix adhesion processes, in cell-cell recognition systems, and in receptor-growth factor interactions.
