11/150. Purely laparoscopic pylorus-preserving gastrectomy with extraperigastric lymphadenectomy for early gastric cancer: a case and technical report.

    For the purpose of prevention of postgastrectomy syndrome and a less invasive and yet curative oncological resection, a purely laparoscopic pylorus-preserving gastrectomy with extraperigastric lymphadenectomy was performed for a patient with early gastric cancer located in the middle third of the stomach. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful. During his postoperative recovery, the patient experienced very little pain and used analgesic medication only one time. This operation appeared to be oncologically adequate. As of the seventh postoperative month, the patient never experienced dumping syndrome or alkaline reflux gastritis. This procedure is technically feasible and an excellent option because of its reduced surgical invasiveness and better postoperative quality of life.

12/150. Autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune gastritis, and gastric carcinoid in a type 1 diabetic patient: a case report.

    The history of a 45-year-old male type 1 diabetic patient is presented. At the age of 29 years, he was diagnosed to have an autoimmune hepatitis with incipient liver cirrhosis. Five years later, a successful liver/pancreas transplantation was performed. Eighteen months later, however, pancreatic insufficiency occurred due to thrombosis of the pancreatic graft. Besides these conditions, iron deficiency, pernicious anemia, and autoimmune gastritis were also diagnosed. serum parietal cell antibodies (PCA) and intrinsic factor antibodies (AIF) were positive. At 45, this patient was found to have a gastric carcinoid tumor.The clinical importance of PCA is discussed with regard to chronic atrophic gastritis and pernicious anemia, which both predispose toward gastric carcinoid tumors. Autoimmune type 1 diabetic patients who have a high prevalence of PCA should be screened for gastric autoimmune manifestations and tumors, as the history of this patient illustrates.

13/150. Gastric adenocarcinoma in a patient with X-linked agammaglobulinaemia.

    patients with primary immunodeficiencies are at high risk for developing haematological malignancies and, to a lesser degree, carcinoma. We report a patient with ascertained X-linked agammaglobulinaemia who developed a gastric carcinoma involving the distal part of the stomach associated with chronic atrophic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia. These latter conditions are considered to be precursor conditions and the role of chronic infections is likely. patients with X-linked agammaglobulinaemia, as with other primary immunodeficiencies, could benefit from regular gastrointestinal evaluation, leading to early diagnosis and treatment of carcinoma.

14/150. Two cases of cancer in the remnant stomach derived from gastritis cystica polyposa.

    We have recently encountered two patients with early gastric cancer in the remnant stomach which resulted from gastritis cystica polyposa at the anastomosis site. The remnant stomach, which had been reconstructed with the Billroth II method, contained an elevated sessile lesion at the anastomosis site. One patient was a 73-year-old woman who had undergone gastrectomy for a gastric ulcer at 30 years earlier, cancer type I IIa of the remnant stomach was diagnosed, and total remnant gastrectomy was performed. The other patient was a 59-year-old man who had undergone gastrectomy for a duodenal ulcer at 31 years earlier, cancer type I IIa of the remnant stomach was diagnosed, and subtotal remnant gastrectomy was performed. Histological examination in each case showed that moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma had developed from gastritis cystica polyposa. These results suggested that this cancer has a close relationship with gastritis cystica polyposa.

15/150. Regression of gastric T cell lymphoma with eradication of helicobacter pylori.

    helicobacter pylori is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of chronic active gastritis, peptic ulceration, gastric adenocarcinoma, and gastric B cell lymphoma of mucosa associated lymphoid tissue. The mechanism of evolution from chronic gastritis to monoclonal B cell proliferation is not known but is thought to be dependent on antigen specific T cells to H pylori and its products. Here, we report a case of gastric T cell lymphoma associated with chronic H pylori gastritis which regressed with eradication of the organism. This is the first report of a gastric T cell lymphoma regressing with H pylori eradication, and suggests a causal link between primary gastric T cell lymphoma and this organism.

16/150. Multiple gastric carcinoid tumors with type A gastritis concomitant with gastric cancer: a case report.

    We describe a case with multiple gastric carcinoid tumors combined with early gastric carcinoma originated from the type A gastritis-affected tissue. Microcarcinoid foci were observed from the deeper layers of the propria mucosa to the submucosa and were surrounded by endocrine cell micronests (ECMs), while carcinoma was limited within the mucosa. serum gastrin level was high (1,100 pg/ml) pre-operatively but returned to normal (44 pg/ml) post-operatively. It suggested that the longstanding hypergastrinemia may have played a causative role in the development of multiple carcinoids and cancer. Surgical treatment was considered essential for treatment in this case of coincident multiple carcinoid tumors and cancer.

17/150. Multiple carcinoids in the stomach with hypergastrinemia and type A gastritis: a case report.

    We have experienced a case of the stomach with hypergastrinemia and type A gastritis with multiple carcinoids in a 37-year-old woman. An upper gastrointestinal series revealed multiple minute polyps in the upper body of the stomach. All polyps were diagnosed as carcinoid using endoscopic biopsies. She had neither symptom or signs of typical carcinoid disease. The serum gastrin level was as high as 725 pg/ml. Total gastrectomy was performed, and the diagnosis of multiple gastric carcinoids (sm, no) with type A gastritis was histologically confirmed. After the operation, the serum gastrin level returned to normal, and the patient has been doing well and is disease-free to date at 7 years after the operation. This case suggested that multiple gastric carcinoid lesions may be precipitated by chronic atrophic gastritis accompanying hypergastrinemia. In the treatment of multiple gastric carcinoids with type A gastritis, total gastrectomy with lymph node dissection should be standard operative procedure, in order to resect the fundic gland area completely which could be the origin of carcinoids and endocrine cell micronest.

18/150. Synchronous gastric adenocarcinoma and MALT lymphoma in a patient with H. pylori infection. Could the two neoplasms share a common pathogenesis?

    Low-grade primary MALT (mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue) lymphoma of the stomach is a neoplasm with an indolent course and a good prognosis. patients with this type of neoplasm seem to have a higher risk for other neoplasms. Of interest is the association of gastric MALT lymphoma with gastric adenocarcinoma of intestinal type. We report the case of a patient, with a history of H. pylori-related gastritis, in whom a diagnosis of synchronous gastric adenocarcinoma of intestinal type and low-grade MALT lymphoma, occurring as collision tumors, was made. The stage procedures confirmed the presence of a locally advanced gastric tumor staged as T3 N1. The patient underwent two cycles of neoadjuvant EEP (etoposide, epirubicin, cisplatin) chemotherapy. After 2 months, a R0 total gastrectomy with D2-lymphoadenectomy was successfully performed. The development of simultaneous primary gastric lymphoma and carcinoma is a rare event. The possible coexistence of both tumors should be kept in mind, especially in patients infected with H. pylori, since a possible etiopathogenetic role of this bacterium has been differently postulated for both disease.

19/150. helicobacter pylori-associated gastric MALT lymphoma in liver transplant recipients.

    BACKGROUND: Immunosuppressed transplant recipients are at increased risk of developing several forms of malignancy. The aim of this study is to report the clinical presentation, treatment, and outcome of four liver transplant recipients with helicobacter pylori-associated gastric mucosae-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. methods: The medical records of four liver transplant recipients with gastric MALT lymphoma were reviewed. in situ hybridization for Epstein-Barr-encoded ribonucleic acid was performed on formalin-fixed tissues. RESULTS: All four subjects presented with abdominal symptoms at a mean of 6.1 years posttransplant. Ulcerative lesions biopsied at endoscopy demonstrated early-stage gastric MALT lymphoma with associated helicobacter pylori gastritis. in situ hybridization revealed no evidence of Epstein-Barr virus infection in examined tissues. Antibiotic eradication of helicobacter pylori lead to disease remission in three subjects with a mean follow-up of 21 months, and one subject failed to respond to antibiotics and radiation therapy and died from metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma. CONCLUSIONS: Early-stage, low-grade gastric MALT lymphoma that was associated with helicobacter pylori gastritis responded to antibiotic therapy with a sustained clinical remission in three of four treated subjects. If other studies confirm a higher than expected incidence of gastric MALT lymphoma in immunosuppressed transplant recipients with helicobacter pylori infection, screening and treating helicobacter pylori infection in selected transplant patients may prove beneficial.

20/150. Chronic gastritis and helicobacter pylori.

    helicobacter pylori is the major cause of chronic gastritis. The predominant anatomic distribution of the gastritis is antral in the majority of individuals. In a small minority, the corpus is predominantly involved. The former pattern is associated with duodenal ulceration in some patients, but the majority of those infected never develop either symptoms or disease. The latter form is associated with the development of gastric ulcer and carcinoma and may be protective against the development of Barrett's esophagus. It is the physiological changes associated with the histological changes and the, as yet poorly, defined host response, which are of paramount importance in determining the evolution of a disease or whether the infected individual remains asymptomatic and disease free. This article addresses the various relationships between H. pylori infection, histology, gastric physiology, and disease.
