Report of a case: Retroperitoneal mucinous cystadenocarcinoma with rapid progression.

Kamiyama H, Shimazu A, Makino Y, Ichikawa R, Hobo T, Arima S, Nohara S, Sugiyama Y, Okumura M, Takei M, Miura H, Namekata K, Tsumura H, Okada M, Takase M, Matsumoto F - Int J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: Eventually, the patient died of the disease 15 months after surgery.Complete excision without rupture is essential.Retroperitoneal mucinous cystadenocarcinoma is a rare tumor, and it is urgently necessary to elucidate the etiology of an effective therapy for the disease.

(A) Hematoxylin and eosin (H & E) stained sections reveal a cyst wall focally lined with mucinous epithelial cells and showing partial erosion and patchy hemorrhage. (B) A small focus of moderately to poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma arising in a back ground of mild chronic inflammation in the caudal smaller cyst seen on this H & E stained section.

fig0015: (A) Hematoxylin and eosin (H & E) stained sections reveal a cyst wall focally lined with mucinous epithelial cells and showing partial erosion and patchy hemorrhage. (B) A small focus of moderately to poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma arising in a back ground of mild chronic inflammation in the caudal smaller cyst seen on this H & E stained section.

Mentions: The cyst wall was lined with epithelial cells (Fig. 3A). However, most of the epithelial liner was either attenuated or denuded, and the cyst wall showed areas of erosions and patchy hemorrhage. Immunohistochemical studies were strongly positive for CA19-9, and negative for CEA. Ovarian-type stroma was seen in the cyst wall, however, immunohistochemical staining with estrogen receptor and progesterone receptor antibodies was negative. There was focal involvement by adenocarcinoma in the caudal smaller cyst, approximately 2 × 2 mm in size, 1 mm in depth, and the resection margins were negative for carcinoma (Fig. 3B). The post operative course was uneventful, and the patient had been under watchful observation.
