Colon cancer metastasis mimicking intraductal papillary neoplasm of the extra-hepatic bile duct.

Yamao T, Hayashi H, Higashi T, Takeyama H, Kaida T, Nitta H, Hashimoto D, Chikamoto A, Beppu T, Baba H - Int J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: The metastatic sites associated with the dissemination of colon cancer are well known and normally predictable, which includes the lymphatic, haematogenous, or peritoneal regions, while other locations are quite rare.In this report, we present a case of colon cancer with an unusual metastatic pattern mimicking an intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) present in the extra-hepatic bile duct with a cytokeratin (CK)-7-negative and CK-20-positive profile (intestinal type).Our findings also suggest that there may be an incidental 4th metastatic route via the bile stream.
