1/193. 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.

2/193. Successful surgical treatment of a solitary parapharyngeal metastasis from thyroid cancer, using the mandibular swing-transcervical approach: report of a case.

    A 72-year-old man presented with a right parapharyngeal mass, 4 cm in diameter, which was subsequently diagnosed as a metastasis originating from papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland. The parapharyngeal tumor was successfully removed by the mandibular swing-transcervical approach with pharyngeal reconstruction, performed using a buccal mucosal island flap based on the facial artery. His postoperative course was uneventful, and the preoperative clinical symptoms such as dysphagia and headaches completely resolved after surgery.

3/193. radiation myelopathy with partial functional recovery: PET evidence of long-term increased metabolic activity of the spinal cord.

    Postoperative telecobalt irradiation was performed with a biologically effective extrapolated response dose of 165 Gy2 delivered to the spinal cord of a papillary thyroid cancer patient. Incomplete cervical transection developed, followed by a gradual functional improvement, which is still continuing 8 years after radiotherapy. Between the 6th and 8th years of the clinical course, positron emission tomography investigations demonstrated an increased 18F-deoxyglucose accumulation and (15)O-butanol perfusion, but negligible 11C-methionine uptake in the irradiated spinal cord segment. We suggest that the increased metabolism and perfusion, and the lack of detectable protein synthesis may be related to the increased energy demands of action potential conduction, due to the higher than normal density of sodium channels along demyelinated axons displaying restored conduction.

4/193. hyperthyroidism due to papillary carcinoma of the thyroid--a case report.

    A rare case of papillary carcinoma of the thyroid producing hyperthyroidism is presented. A young patients presented seven years after a thyroid operation with metastatic disease in the cervical lymph nodes and a history of deteriorating vision in the left eye. He also had a lesion in the base of the skull which could not be established to be metastasis from the thyroid cancer. There was clinical and biochemical evidence of hyperthyroidism. Radionuclide scan revealed uptake in the residual thyroid tissue and patchy uptake by the cervical lymph nodes. The patient underwent a complete thyroidectomy and radical neck dissection of the left side and 'berry-picking' of the lymph nodes on the right side. Although the patient became euthyroid post-operatively, his general condition deteriorated and he rapidly lost vision in both eyes before any ablative therapy could be instituted for the tumour in the base of the skull. The patient was lost to follow-up.

5/193. Rapid death following papillary serous carcinoma of the endometrium without myometrial invasion.

    A 72-year-old woman was diagnosed with a stage I endometrial carcinoma, and total hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and systematic pelvic and paraaortic lymphadenectomy were performed. Postoperative pathological examination determined that the tumor was confined to the endometrium, with no myometrial invasion or lymph-vascular involvement; histological examination revealed a papillary serous carcinoma of the endometrium. Peritoneal washing cytology during surgery revealed an adenocarcinoma. Despite postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy, early recurrence resulted in death 13 months after surgery. In the absence of myometrial invasion and lymph-vascular involvement, the data suggest that peritoneal washing cytology may serve as a prognostic factor in papillary serous carcinoma of the endometrium.

6/193. Mediastinal lymph node involvement as the initial manifestation of occult thyroid cancer in the surgical treatment of lung cancer: report of a case.

    A 63-year-old man was referred to our institute for the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma of the upper lobe of his right lung. A right upper lobectomy of the lung was performed with a mediastinal lymph node dissection. The postoperative pathological examination of the dissected specimens revealed one of the superior mediastinal lymph nodes to be morbid with micrometastasis of occult thyroid cancer, while no node involvement was seen due to lung cancer. A right lobectomy of the thyroid gland with a modified radical neck dissection was done 4 years later after the confirmation of the absence of any recurrent sign of lung cancer. In the resected specimen, papillary thyroid microcarcinoma was observed with several intraglandular metastases and right regional lymph node involvement. Eight months later, a new primary lung cancer developed in the left lung, and a left upper lobectomy of the lung with a mediastinal lymph node dissection was performed. At that time, the absence of mediastinal lymph node metastasis from lung cancer or thyroid cancer was confirmed. Mediastinal lymph node involvement as the initial manifestation of occult thyroid cancer in surgical treatment for lung cancer is rare, but it is important to be aware of the possibility of incidentally detecting occult thyroid cancer in surgical dissections in this area for lung cancer. The appropriate surgical treatment should be determined while carefully considering the prognosis of the lung cancer as well as that of any coexisting malignancy.

7/193. Left hepatic trisegmentectomy for intraductal papillary cholangiocarcinoma: report of a case.

    We present a rare case of intraductal papillary cholangiocarcinoma in a 69 year-old man which was treated with left hepatic trisegmentectomy. The hepatic bile ducts were dilated by intraductal masses, which had extended into the intrahepatic bile ducts without involvement of the posterior inferior segmental duct (B6). The patient underwent left hepatic trisegmentectomy with hilar duct resection. The tumors in the posterior superior segmental duct (B7) were resected and biliary reconstruction was performed with a jejunal loop. Post-operative recovery was good, and the patient survived for 7 months after surgery.

8/193. Hyalinizing trabecular adenoma of the thyroid gland--a report of two cases.

    Hyalinizing trabecular adenoma (HTA) is a specific variant of thyroid adenoma with a particular histological pattern. immunohistochemistry is the best way of differentiating these adenomas. Of special interest is a strong positive cytoplasmic reaction for MIB-1. In FNAB and intra-operative examination HTA is usually misdiagnosed as a papillary carcinoma. Histological examination of paraffin-embedded material and immunohistochemical stainings provide a correct diagnosis.

9/193. Papillary carcinoma of the base of the tongue. Case clinic.

    Ectopic lingual thyroid tissue is an uncommon developmental anomaly. Tumours of identical pathological characteristics as those arising in the eutropic thyroid tissue, may be present in ectopic locations. There are very few cases of malignant tumours reported in the literature. Here we report a review of this pathology and we describe a case of a papillary carcinoma of the base of the tongue, located in ectopic lingual thyroid tissue, in a 66 year-old white man, complaining of dysphagia and oral bleeding. Surgical treatment was carried out, consisting of radical resection of the right hemineck, tumour resection, right hemiglossectomy and total thyroidectomy. Postoperative treatment with 131I and substitutive thyroid hormonal therapy was prescribed.

10/193. Solid and papillary epithelial neoplasm. Ultrasound and CT features of an unusual pancreatic tumour.

    The ultrasonographic and computed tomography features of four cases of solid and papillary epithelial neoplasm (SPEN)--a rare pancreatic tumour--are described. Although not diagnostic, the presence of these imaging features in the typical clinical setting may permit pre-operative radiological diagnosis and facilitate planning for curative surgery for this malignant tumour which has an excellent prognosis even without further adjuvant therapy.
