1/108. A case of aberrant pancreatic cancer in the jejunum.

    We report a case of aberrant pancreatic cancer of the jejunum in a 63 year-old man. The patient was admitted to our hospital with epigastric discomfort and vomiting due to obstruction of the jejunum. laparotomy revealed a submucosal tumor on the jejunum with multiple liver metastases. Histological examination showed the tumor to be a well differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma originating from aberrant pancreatic tissues lacking islets. Only 1 case of aberrant pancreatic cancer in the jejunum has been previously reported in the literature.

2/108. Ectopic thymic tissue: a cause of emphysema in infants.

    Ectopic thymic tissue can present a diagnostic dilemma when it is located in the posterior mediastinum. The diagnosis can be made by awareness of it and by use of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Rarely, ectopic thymus are reported to cause airway obstruction. In infants ectopic thymic tissue should also be considered in the differential diagnosis of secondary pneumonias and emphysema especially located in the upper lung zones.

3/108. lingual thyroid gland: clinical evaluation and comprehensive management.

    Although lingual thyroid gland is the most common benign mass found at the junction of the anterior two-thirds and the posterior one-third of the tongue, it is still a rare clinical entity. This developmental anomaly is the result of an arrested descent of the gland anlage early in the course of embryogenesis. patients may have symptoms of dysphagia due to obstruction or even hemorrhage. These symptoms can occur at any time from infancy through adulthood. The clinical findings, laboratory tests, and radiographic imaging studies employed in confirming the diagnosis and in planning appropriate treatment have been evaluated. The primary therapeutic goal is to restore thyroid function. We describe a case of lingual thyroid gland and summarize the current management principles for this condition.

4/108. Tall cell variant of papillary carcinoma arising from ectopic thyroid tissue in the trachea.

    Ectopic thyroid tissue within the submucosa of the trachea is a rare cause of upper airway obstruction. Primary neoplasms arising from such thyroid nests are rare. This report describes a case of tall cell variant of papillary carcinoma arising from ectopic thyroid tissue in the trachea.

5/108. Recurrent pregnancy-related upper airway obstruction caused by intratracheal ectopic thyroid tissue.

    An unusual case of recurrent pregnancy-related thyroid growth stimulation is reported. A 27-year-old euthyroid woman had pulmonary symptoms, thought to be asthma during her first pregnancy, that improved postpartum. Bronchodilatators had no effect and symptoms recurred from gestational week 22 during her second pregnancy. Her 58-mL multinodular goiter (by ultrasound) was not thought to be responsible for her upper airway symptoms. Therefore, fiber laryngoscopy and computed tomographic (CT) scan were performed and revealed a 20 x 15 x 10 mm intratracheal tumor. After tracheostomy and microlaryngoscopy, benign goitrous thyroid tissue was removed through a tracheal fissure during gestational week 35. Postoperatively the patient had stopped medication and was without any pulmonary symptoms. The child was delivered by cesarean section in gestational week 39. apgar score was normal and the child has developed normally. We believe that this case illustrates the recurrent effect of pregnancy-related thyroid tissue stimulation by a combination of increasing human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) stimulation and iodine deficiency in a borderline iodine-deficient region. This is the first report on symptomatic intratracheal ectopic thyroid tissue diagnosed during pregnancy.

6/108. Graves' disease and recurrent ectopic thyroid tissue.

    Ectopic thyroid tissue is the result of abnormal migration of the gland as it travels from the floor of the primitive foregut to its destined pretracheal position. The prevalence of ectopic thyroid tissue ranges between 7%-10%. patients with ectopic thyroid tissue are usually euthyroid, but can present with signs and symptoms of upper aerodigestive tract obstruction. We report a case in which ectopic mediastinal thyroid tissue was removed surgically because of substernal chest pain. It recurred 9 years later when the patient developed Graves' disease. We propose that the recurrence of the ectopic thyroid tissue was due to the influence of thyroid stimulating immunoglobulins (TSI).

7/108. Heterotopic pancreas--an unusual cause of cholecystitis.

    A 47-year-old woman presented with signs and symptoms of acute cholecystitis. A routine cholecystectomy was performed. No gallstones were present. On histological examination of the gallbladder, a nodule impinging on the lumen was present in the region of the cystic duct. This nodule was composed of mature, uninflamed exocrine and endocrine pancreatic tissue. In the absence of gallstones, the heterotopic pancreas was the cause of obstruction, with subsequent cholecystitis.

8/108. Ectopic thyroid tissue in the left ventricular outflow tract.

    Ectopic thyroid tissue in the heart (struma cordis) is rare. The only report from a hemodynamically significant obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) by a heterotopic thyroid gland was published in 1988. In our patient, a 42-year-old woman with recurrent chest pain, two spheric cardiac tumors were diagnosed by transthoracal echocardiography. One of the tumors, obstructing the LVOT, could successfully be resected under cardiopulmonary bypass. The pathologic examination showed a colloid-filled ectopic thyroid gland. The second tumor, which was entirely located in the submembraneous part of the interventricular septum, had no hemodynamic influence, and was left in situ to avoid surgical damage of adjacent intraseptal structures. The midterm follow-up showed no recurrence.

9/108. Extensive gastric heterotopia of the small intestine resulting in massive gastrointestinal bleeding, bowel perforation, and death: report of a case and review of the literature.

    Gastric heterotopia of the small intestine is a rare occurrence outside of Meckel's diverticulum and intestinal duplication. The vast majority of cases of gastric heterotopia occur as polypoid or tumorous lesions in the duodenum. These lesions have been associated with clinical symptoms including diarrhea, obstruction, dyspepsia, ulceration, and gastrointestinal bleeding. We present a case of gastric heterotopia that is unique because the lesions occurred as multiple, carpet-like, nonpolypoid areas throughout a large portion of the small intestine. A review of the literature is included.

10/108. Isolated heterotopic pancreas causing intussusception.

    Pediatric intussusception is usually idiopathic in origin, and a pathological lesion at the leadpoint is identified in only a small proportion of cases. Meckel's diverticulum is the most common location when such a lesion is found. Heterotopic pancreas has been seen most frequently in the stomach or duodenum; however, ileal lesions are rare. In the ileum, heterotopic pancreas is usually associated with Meckel's diverticulum and may cause intestinal obstruction by intussusception. However, isolated heterotopic pancreas in the ileum is distinctly rare and usually discovered incidentally during surgery for other conditions. In a review of English language literature, there were only a few pediatric cases of isolated ileal heterotopic pancreas causing intussusception. We report three additional pediatric cases and discuss the clinical significance of this unexpected rare entity.
