Carcinoid tumor of the cystic duct: case report, literature review and comparison of surgical approaches.

Garland J, O'Leary E, Haggerty J, Zorc TG - Case Rep Oncol (2014)

Bottom Line: We present the case of a 48-year-old female with a cystic duct carcinoid that was found incidentally upon laparoscopic cholecystectomy.The patient subsequently underwent excision of the cystic duct remnant.This is the tenth reported case of a cystic duct carcinoid and the second reported laparoscopic excision.

ABSTRACT
We present the case of a 48-year-old female with a cystic duct carcinoid that was found incidentally upon laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The patient subsequently underwent excision of the cystic duct remnant. This is the tenth reported case of a cystic duct carcinoid and the second reported laparoscopic excision.

Figure 1: Cystic duct remnant retracted.

Mentions: We propose that if the cystic duct carcinoid is small and there is no common duct involvement, a complete laparoscopic resection of the cystic duct can be performed without injuring the common bile duct (fig. 1). This obviates the need for common bile duct excision and reconstruction of the biliary tree. Laparoscopic resection is possible if negative margins are achieved and no involvement of the regional lymph nodes can be confirmed. Metastasis to the regional lymph nodes and the liver are the most common sites reported [2, 6]. In cystic duct carcinoids, metastasis is infrequent, occurring in 2 of the 10 cases [2].
