1/670. Middle ear adenocarcinoma with intracranial extension. Case report.

    Middle ear adenocarcinoma is a very rare, locally invasive neoplasm assumed to arise from the middle ear mucosa. Although endolymphatic sac tumor (aggressive papillary middle ear tumor) and jugulotympanic paraganglioma may show brain invasion, intracranial extension of histologically confirmed middle ear adenocarcinoma has not been previously reported. The authors describe a 53-year-old man who suffered from otalgia and tinnitus for more than 10 years and from neurological deficits for 1 year due to a large temporal bone tumor that invaded the temporal lobe. A combined neurosurgical and otolaryngological resection was performed. Pathological analysis revealed a low-grade adenocarcinoma of a mixed epithelial-neuroendocrine phenotype, which showed a close histological similarity to, and topographical relationship with, middle ear epithelium. The authors conclude that middle ear adenocarcinoma belongs to the spectrum of extracranial tumors that have possible local extension to the brain.

2/670. Graphic analysis of microscopic tumor cell infiltration, proliferative potential, and vascular endothelial growth factor expression in an autopsy brain with glioblastoma.

    BACKGROUND: growth of brain tumors requires tumor-cell attachment to adjacent structures, degradation of surrounding matrixes, migration of tumor cells, proliferation of vasculature, and tumor cell proliferation. Comparison of the findings on neuroimaging, degrees and patterns of tumor invasion, regional tumor cell viability detected by Ki-67 immunohistochemistry, and regional vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in whole-brain specimen of glioblastoma therefore is of great interest, and will facilitate study of the host reaction against the glioblastoma. methods: We graphically analyzed microscopic tumor-cell infiltration, regional differences in Ki-67 labeling indices (LI), and immunohistochemical expression of VEGF in an autopsy brain with glioblastoma. RESULTS: glioblastoma cells infiltrated the brain far beyond the gross limits of the tumor and the areas with high signal intensity on T2-weighted magnetic resonance images. A wide range of histologic malignancy was apparent from hematoxylin-eosin staining and the Ki-67 labeling indices. VEGF was highly expressed in normal astrocytes located outside the tumor. CONCLUSION: Graphic analysis of histologic and immunohistochemical patterns is a useful method of investigating the mechanisms of glioma growth, tumor cell infiltration in the brain, and the host reaction of the brain against neoplasms.

3/670. Malignant myoepithelioma of the salivary glands: clinicopathological and immunohistochemical features.

    Malignant myoepitheliomas (myoepithelial carcinomas) are uncommon, and we know of only 29 reported cases. We present a new case together with its clinical, histological, and immunohistochemical features. The tumour was located in the inferior vestibular sulcus of a 64-year-old woman. She was treated by wide local resection. Malignant myoepitheliomas are distinguished from benign myoepithelial neoplasms by their infiltrating and destructive growth. The tumour cells may be spindle-shaped or more rounded (plasmacytoid cells) and contain cellular pleomorphism and mitotic activity. The clinical and biological behaviour of this tumour is not yet known and there is little information about treatment and prognosis.

4/670. Conservative treatment of adenocarcinoma of the endometrium in young patients. Is it appropriate?

    Few reports have suggested that nulliparous young patients with endometrial cancer may be treated conservatively to preserve fertility. We present a young nulliparous woman with a well differentiated adenocarcinoma of the endometrium treated with progestins. Since she did not respond, a definite operation was performed revealing involvement of the uterine isthmus, thus necessitating adjuvant radiotherapy.

5/670. The 1998 Pan American Lecture. Intraocular invasion of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma in five patients.

    PURPOSE: To report five patients with intraocular invasion of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma and to make recommendations regarding clinical recognition and treatment of this condition. methods: The authors reviewed the clinical records and pathology slides on five patients who had intraocular invasion of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma, and they describe the presenting features and histopathology in these cases. RESULTS: Intraocular invasion of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma occurred in older patients who had one or more recurrences of a previously excised conjunctival epithelial tumor located near the comeoscleral limbus. The intraocular recurrence often was heralded by the onset of low-grade inflammation and secondary glaucoma, simulating a granulomatous iridocyclitis. A white mass generally was observed in the anterior chamber angle. Histopathologic examination revealed an ingrowth of malignant epithelial cells through the limbus with diffuse involvement of the anterior segment of the eye. The reported patients were managed by modified enucleation (standard enucleation with excision of affected conjunctival tissue). Metastatic disease did not develop in any of the patients. CONCLUSIONS: The onset of signs of uveitis and glaucoma and a white mass in the anterior chamber angle in a patient with prior excision of a conjunctival squamous cell neoplasm tumor should raise suspicion of intraocular recurrence of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma. Most affected patients require enucleation or subtotal orbital exenteration. The prognosis is good.

6/670. The role of lymphatic drainage of the liver in gallbladder cancer: a case report.

    We report a case of a patient with a unique lymph node relapse after right hepatectomy and aggressive lymph node dissection for gallbladder cancer. There was extensive involvement of the hepatic parenchyma from the primary tumor, but no extension to the lymph nodes or other adjacent organs. Seventeen months later, the patient underwent re-dissection of the retroperitoneal lymph nodes with right nephrectomy and partial resection of the vena cava because of lymph node recurrence at the hilum of the right kidney. This pattern of lymph node metastasis to the right side of the vena cava from gallbladder cancer invading the liver is probably due to the distinct lymphatic drainage of the liver.

7/670. Both atrial resection and superior vena cava replacement in sleeve pneumonectomy for advanced lung cancer.

    Extended sleeve pneumonectomy including removal of the superior vena cava, right atrium and parts of left atrium on cardiopulmonary bypass was successfully performed in a 40-year-old man. The tumour was histologically proven a T4 N1 stage with margins free from tumour. Adjuvant radiochemotherapy was administered postoperatively on an outpatient base. The patient did well for 7 months then he died from myocardial infarction due to metastatic infiltration of the right coronary artery. Other metastatic deposits were not found at autopsy. More data from extended pulmonary resections are required to demonstrate a benefit.

8/670. adenoma arising from the cystic duct and extending to the confluence of the extrahepatic biliary tract.

    We describe a rare case of adenoma with a few foci of severe atypia arising from the cystic duct in a 68-year-old woman, initially diagnosed by the presence of intracholecystic tumefactive sludge on abdominal ultrasonography. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) disclosed a tuberous filling defect at the orifice of the cystic duct. pathology examination of the biopsied specimen obtained from ERC disclosed not a cancerous but an adenomatous lesion. Macroscopically, the resected specimen showed a superficially spreading and shallowly elevated lesion extending from the cystic duct to the common bile duct. Although a few sporadic foci of severe atypia were observed, microscopy did not reveal any cancer findings, but confirmed the tumorous lesion as benign adenoma, showing mild-to-moderate atypia. Postoperative immunohistochemistry revealed no expression of p53 protein. We briefly refer to the rarity of adenoma in the biliary tract and discuss the difficulty of differential diagnosis of neoplastic lesions in the extrahepatic biliary tract.

9/670. Descending aorta substitution with expandable ends prosthesis. Case report.

    A case of esophageal cancer infiltrating the left bronchus pars membranacea and the aneurysmal aortic wall was resected en bloc with the bronchial and aortic wall. Descending aorta was substituted by means of a Dacron prosthesis fitted with expandable devices at both ends, allowing a very significant reduction of the clamping time and simplification of this part of the procedure.

10/670. Major hepatectomy combined with pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy for middle bile duct cancer with multiple lymph node metastases: a case report of 5-year survival.

    Hepatopancreatoduodenectomy has been well established as an aggressive surgical approach for advanced biliary tract malignancy. However, long-term survival of more than 5 years after this operation is rarely reported, especially with bile duct carcinoma. We report herein a 64 year-old man with middle bile duct cancer who underwent extended right hepatectomy combined with pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy because of widespread intramural extension of the tumor. Resection margin, which is considered the most significant prognostic parameter, was made clear only by additional hepatectomy in this case. In addition, although microscopic examination revealed multiple lymph node involvement up to the superior mesenteric node, the patient has survived 5 years and 6 months without tumor recurrence. It remains unclear whether aggressive lymph node dissection may improve surgical outcome; however, it is thought that surgical clearance of potentially involved nodes and tissue may be the only chance for long-term survival.
