Suh JI, Kim JH, Lee DJ, Kim KY, Park CW, Kim TN, Chung MK - Korean J. Intern. Med. (1997)

Bottom Line: It has been shown to arise in congenital liver cysts, bile ducts, biliary cystadenoma, in the context of fibropolycystic disease and in the hepatoduodenal ligament.Common presenting symptoms include an abdominal mass, local pain, nausea, jaundice, fever or occasional ascites.Approximately 50 cases have been reported in the literature.

ABSTRACT
Biliary cystadenocarcinoma is a very rare cystic tumor that arises in the liver or, less frequently, in the extrahepatic biliary system. It has been shown to arise in congenital liver cysts, bile ducts, biliary cystadenoma, in the context of fibropolycystic disease and in the hepatoduodenal ligament. Common presenting symptoms include an abdominal mass, local pain, nausea, jaundice, fever or occasional ascites. Some patients are asymptomatic, the lesion being an incidental finding at autopsy or surgery. Approximately 50 cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of biliary cystadenocarcinoma in a 63-year-old man with a review of the literature.

The tumor is histologically composed of cuboi-dal tumor cells. The cyst wall is composed of thin fibrous tissue (H & E, ×40).

f7-kjim-12-1-109-21: The tumor is histologically composed of cuboi-dal tumor cells. The cyst wall is composed of thin fibrous tissue (H & E, ×40).

Mentions: The surgical specimen contained a grayish-brown colored, well encapsulated unilocular cyst measuring 10.0×8.0×5.0cm (Fig. 5). On section, the internal cavity was filled with multiple papillary tumors and abundant mucinous fluid (Fig. 6). Histologic examination showed papillary proliferation of atypical cuboidal epithelium with mucin production in the cystic area. The tumor was determined as biliary cystadenocarcinoma (Fig. 7, 8).
