A case of metastasis-induced acute pancreatitis in a patient with small cell lung cancer.

Yamanashi K, Marumo S, Saitoh M, Kato M - Clin Case Rep (2014)

Bottom Line: We report a rare case of metastasis-induced acute pancreatitis (MIAP) from small cell lung cancer (SCLC) diagnosed on autopsy, indicating a diagnosis of MIAP with SCLC.Our case suggests that MIAP can arise as a complication of SCLC and has an extremely poor prognosis.

(A, B) The specimen at autopsy shows a 100 × 80-mm tumor in the right inferior lobe of the lung (A) and a 30 × 22-mm tumor from the pancreas head to the pancreas body macroscopically (B). (C and D) Tumor cells from the right lung (C) and pancreas (D) show balls of small epithelial cells microscopically. (E) The tumor cells are immunopositive for thyroid transcription factor-1.

(C and D) Tumor cells from the right lung (C) and pancreas (D) show balls of small epithelial cells microscopically. (E) The tumor cells are immunopositive for thyroid transcription factor-1.

Mentions: An anatomic pathological examination was performed. Macroscopic examination at autopsy showed a 100 × 80-mm tumor in the right inferior lobe of the lung (Fig.2A) and a 30 × 22-mm tumor from the pancreas head to the pancreas body (Fig.2B). Necrosis was observed in the pancreas and adipose tissue around the pancreas. Tumor cells from the right lung and the pancreas showed balls of small epithelial cells microscopically (Fig.2C and D) and positive staining for thyroid transcription factor-1 immunohistochemically (Fig.2E). The final diagnosis was MIAP with SCLC.
