1/137. Spontaneous rupture of a nonparasitic liver cyst complicated by intracystic hemorrhage.

    a case of spontaneous rupture of simple liver cyst complicated by intracystic hemorrhage is described. This rare condition was detected in a 61-year-old man who underwent left trisegmentectomy of liver under a suspected diagnosis of cystadenocarcinoma because of elevated serum levels of carbohydrate antigen (CA) 19-9 and DUPAN 2, and the presence of an intracystic structure. The resected specimen showed a benign liver cyst with intracystic hematoma and high levels of CA19-9 and DUPAN 2 in the cystic fluid. It is suggested that cyst rupture may increase serum levels of tumor markers whose levels are high in the cystic fluid, and that repeated observations of an intracystic structure may be the most reliable method to distinguish intracystic hemorrhage from cystic neoplasm.

2/137. A case of intraabdominal bleeding following pancreatoduodenectomy successfully treated by transcatheter arterial embolization.

    A 58-year-old male underwent pancreatoduodenectomy based on a diagnosis of middle bile duct cancer. Because abdominal drainage revealed bile leakage 5 days postoperatively, leakage at the site of cholangiojejunostomy was diagnosed, and continuous aspiration was performed. Seventeen days postoperatively, pus was discharged through the abdominal drain. Because bleeding was detected by abdominal drainage, and shock ensued 20 days postoperatively, emergency abdominal angiography was carried out to identify the bleeding site. A false aneurysm in the proper hepatic artery and extravasation from the gastroduodenal artery stump were recognized, and therefore, the proper hepatic artery and common hepatic artery were embolized at a site distal to the false aneurysm using microcoils. Celiac arteriography after transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) did not show extravasation, and revealed blood flow from the right inferior phrenic artery to the liver. liver function was normal after TAE, and the patient recovered and was discharged from the hospital 54 days postoperatively. This paper presents a patient in whom intraabdominal bleeding due to leakage at the site of cholangiojejunostomy complicated by infection was successfully treated by hemostasis with TAE.

3/137. Waldeyer's ring lymphoma presenting as massive oropharyngeal hemorrhage.

    A case report of a patient presenting with massive oropharyngeal hemorrhage originating from lymphoma of the tonsil and it's management is discussed. Locally advanced or recurrent squamous cell carcinoma may manifest with massive oropharyngeal hemorrhage, however, it is unusual for Waldeyer's ring lymphoma to present in this fashion. Management of oropharyngeal malignancies presenting in this manner includes airway control, control of hemorrhage, and biopsy of the tumor. hemorrhage control is provided by surgical exploration or intraarterial embolization. Extranodal lymphoma of the head and neck is not uncommon and is thoroughly discussed in the medical literature. hemorrhage into the upper aerodigestive tract is occasionally observed in the patient with head and neck cancer. It usually occurs, however, in patients with squamous cell carcinoma that have been previously treated or in patients with locally advanced cancers. A comprehensive review of the literature has revealed no other reports of head and neck lymphoma presenting with massive oropharyngeal hemorrhage.

4/137. Localized testicular infarction masquerading as a testicular neoplasm.

    Localized testicular infarction appears to represent a relatively uncommon phenomenon. We describe a patient presenting with a testicular mass simulating a neoplasm, who proved to have a localized hemorrhagic infarction.

5/137. A case of hemorrhagic cyst of the pancreas resembling the cystic endometriosis.

    A 47-year-old Japanese woman with a history of epigastric pain and a recent episode of acute pancreatitis (back pain, nausea, and vomiting) and anemia was found to have a pancreatic cyst of the tail on CT-scan and ultrasonography. Especially, ultrasonography revealed the papillary solid lesion in the cyst. With the tentative diagnosis of a cystic neoplasm, distal pancreatectomy was performed. Histological examination of sections showed massive hemorrhage, surrounded fibrous connective tissue, and numerous macrophages with hemosiderin deposits; these histological findings resembled cystic endometriosis. The clinicopathological features and pathogenesis of the pancreatic endometrial cyst are discussed.

6/137. Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy control of intractable hematuria following radiation-induced hemorrhagic cystitis. A novel approach.

    OBJECTIVE: To establish the utility of endoscopic sclerotherapy using 1% ethoxysclerol for the control of intractable hematuria following post-irradiation telangiectatic cystitis (PTC). methods: Our experience of treating 4 patients (one female and three male) with massive exsanguinating hematuria resulting from PTC, using a combined intralesional and perilesional injection of 1% ethoxysclerol, is presented. observation on the distribution, grading of telangiectasis and pattern of bleeding are made. RESULTS: A dramatic and lasting cessation of the hematuria in all the 4 patients was achieved during the follow-up period varying from 1 month to 4 years. CONCLUSION: Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy is a simple, highly effective, less invasive new technique in the management of massive and intractable hematuria due to radiation-induced telangiectasia of the urinary bladder.

7/137. Pulmonary hemorrhage in a hemophiliac simulating a lung neoplasm.

    We report an elderly, male smoker with moderate hemophilia b who presented with hemoptysis. Chest imaging revealed a well-circumscribed, pulmonary, mass lesion. Repeated bronchoscopy failed to make a diagnosis, and the patient ultimately underwent open thoracotomy with resection of the mass. Pathologic examination revealed hemorrhagic changes in association with bullous lung disease. This is the first report of symptomatic pulmonary hemorrhage in a patient with hemophilia b. hemorrhage into a pre-existing bulla can simulate a primary lung neoplasm.

8/137. Intracystic hemorrhage of pancreatic serous cystadenoma after renal transplantation: report of a case.

    Immunosuppressive therapy after transplantation increases the risk of developing neoplasms, and neoplasms of the digestive organs are very common in asia. We experienced a patient with an intracystic hemorrhage of pancreatic serous cystadenoma during the follow-up after renal transplantation. Pancreatic cystadenomas are not frequent. Only two cases, presenting with acute abdomen, have so far been reported in the literature. The intracystic hemorrhage in our case may have been related to a rapid tumor growth due to weakened antitumor immunity and azathioprine-induced pancreatitis.

9/137. Two cases of biliary hemorrhage after percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage in which transcatheter arterial embolization was effective.

    Patient No. 1 was a 66-year-old male who was diagnosed as having cancer of the caput pancreatis, and underwent percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD). Since the tube slipped out, percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) was performed. After PTGBD, biliary hemorrhage was observed for two to three days, then hemorrhage disappeared and bile flowed smoothly. Since the tube was likely to slip out, the tube was replaced. After replacement of the tube, biliary hemorrhage was noted for two to three days, then spontaneously subsided again. After icterus was reduced, pancreatoduodenectomy was performed. During surgery, a number of massive blood clots were noted in the bile duct. The PTGBD tube was removed, and a transjejunal tube was placed. On the 11th day after the surgery, hemorrhage occurred in the bile duct tube, and the patient went into shock. Emergency abdominal angiography was performed. A false aneurysm was detected in A6 and embolized using a microcoil. After transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE), hemorrhage stopped, and the patient was discharged. Patient No. 2 was a 68-year-old male who was diagnosed as having cholelithiasis and underwent PTBD. On the 21st day after PTBD, biliary hemorrhage occurred and the patient fell in shock status. Emergency abdominal angiography was performed. A false aneurysm was detected in A3 and embolized using a microcoil. After TAE, cholangioscopic lithectomy was performed and the disease alleviated. Thereafter the patient was discharged. It is necessary to consider false aneurysm when biliary hemorrhage occurs after PT(G)BD.
