1/541. Intracranial hemorrhage due to cerebral metastasis of lung cancer - a case report.

    lung cancer often metastasizes to brain. However, hemorrhage of the metastatic lesions is uncommon. We report a case of a 68-year old man with lung cancer who underwent right upper lobectomy of the lung and presented in 15 months with a cerebral hemorrhage from a metastatic lesion of the brain.

2/541. Villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix: report of a case.

    Villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma is a recently described form of adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix, which apparently affects young women and seems to have a favorable course with an excellent prognosis. We report on a case of villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma in a 26-year-old woman. The patient was treated by conization alone and is disease free after a 40-month follow-up. ( info)

3/541. Familial ovarian carcinoma.

    Familial aggregation of patients with ovarian carcinoma is unusual. A family with four affected members in three consecutive generations is described. The tumors were all of the serous papillary adenocarcinoma type. The pattern of appearance of the malignant disorder in the present family may be explained as the result of transmission of a dominant mutant autosomal gene. The future long term management of such a family might include prophylactic oophorectomy in certain family members, and possibly selective terminations of pregnancies with female fetuses in high-risk women.

4/541. Quadruple cancer including bilateral breasts, Vater's papilla, and urinary bladder: report of a case.

    We herein report a rare case of quadruple carcinoma with heterochronous bilateral breast cancer, cancer of Vater's papilla, and cancer of the urinary bladder, which were all curatively resected. A 62-year-old woman previously underwent right and left modified radical mastectomies heterochronously. Recently, a dilatation of the lower bile duct, diagnosed as cancer of Vater's papilla, was resected by a pancreatoduodenectomy. hematuria during surgery led to the discovery of a solid bladder tumor. The tumor was resected by a transurethral resection. The histopathologic findings differed for all four lesions. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course and to date has shown no recurrence. ( info)

5/541. Papillary clear cell adenocarcinoma of the groin arising from endometriosis.

    A 67-year-old woman presented with rapidly enlarging right anterior thigh mass. Clinical impression was of a primary sarcoma, but the histologic analysis of an incisional biopsy specimen showed adenocarcinoma with clear cell differentiation. Initially thought to be a metastasis, the malignant tumor appears to have arisen from extraabdominal endometriosis of the right groin. This case shows clinical, radiographic, and histologic findings that may help the orthopaedic surgeon recognize an unusual complication of extrapelvic endometriosis. ( info)

6/541. Possibility of slow-growing variants in pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

    Four patients with advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma suggesting slow-growing tumors are reported on. Tumors in 2 of the 4 were far-advanced, but both survived for over 3 years after treatment. One demonstrated 165 days of serum CA 19-9 level doubling time (T2CA 19-9), while the other demonstrated 135 days of DUPAN II level doubling time. Late tumor recurrence was observed in the remaining 2 patients who survived over 8 years after surgery, demonstrating long-term T2CA 19-9. A long-term T2CA 19-9 of 141 days was correlated with slow tumor growth in computed tomography (CT) scans in 1 patient, who survived 2.5 years after evidence of recurrent tumor without supplementary therapy. These observations, which suggest slow-growing variants, have not been reported in the literature on pancreatic adenocarcinoma. A significant difference was also seen in tumor-marker doubling time among 6 patients who survived over 3 years and 26 patients who did not (p = 0.02). Thus, the doubling time may characterize certain tumors biologically in a way that is useful in practice for predicting disease outcome. ( info)

7/541. Cerebral metastasis from ovarian carcinoma. Some observations about treatment.

    Systemic metastases from ovarian carcinoma are frequent, but they rarely affect the central nervous system. The treatment of this type of metastases in not clear. Two cases of solitary cerebral metastasis from ovarian carcinoma are reported. Two patients, submitted to therapeutic protocol established for ovarian carcinoma, presented after 17 and 25 months respectively the appearance of symptoms from brain solitary metastasis without other metastases. They underwent surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy for solitary cerebral metastasis. Treatment of the brain lesion resulted in KPS improvement (KPS = 90) and survival was 16 and 30 months, respectively. From the 2 cases presented and the review of the literature, it appears that a better outcome may be obtained by a combined treatment of metastases, including surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

8/541. Carcinoma gall bladder presenting as hemobilia.

    A 60-year-old man presented with recurrent bouts of melena, requiring multiple transfusions. Upper GI endoscopic evaluation demonstrated fresh bleeding from the ampulla of vater. ultrasonography and CT scan suggested a gall bladder mass without evidence of metastases. laparotomy confirmed a mass confined to the lumen of the gall bladder. The patient underwent cholecystectomy. Histological examination showed papillary adenocarcinoma of the gall bladder extending up to the muscularis propria. ( info)

9/541. Papillary adenocarcinoma of the stomach with psammoma bodies: report of two cases.

    Calcification of gastric carcinoma is unusual and most of the reported cases were of the mucinous type. This report describes two cases of papillo-tubular adenocarcinoma of the stomach with psammomatous calcification confined only to the papillary portion. Calcification was so heavy that specimen X-ray was able to clearly delineate its distribution. Microscopically, the calcification was confined to the papillary carcinoma area and was not found in the area of the tubular adenocarcinoma. Polymorphic calcific bodies were found in the supportive stroma of papillae and extrapapillary spaces as concentrically laminated psammoma bodies. They were also found in tumor cells as minute corpuscles. The mechanism of neoplastic mineralization in these cases seemed different from ontogenic calcification of mucinous gastric carcinoma and we postulated the mechanism of psammomatous calcification which is referred as intracellular calcification.

10/541. Calcification of presumed ovarian carcinoma brain metastases following radiotherapy.

    Multiple brain metastases from ovarian carcinoma are rare. CT findings are reported in a case treated with whole brain radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Radiological complete-calcified brain metastases following treatment and long morphological changes occurred. Delayed neurological findings in relation to treatment are considered. Long survival with unmodified calcified lesions may suggest a stabilization of CNS disease. ( info)
