Ethanol Ablation of a Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor Presenting as a Small Bowel Obstruction.

Chin M, Chen CL, Chang K, Lee J, Samarasena J - ACG Case Rep J (2015)

Bottom Line: Ethanol has historically been used as an ablative agent for a variety of lesions.One of the more common applications of this technique is celiac plexus neurolysis; however, recent reports have suggested a role for the endoscopic alcohol ablation of a variety of solid and cystic lesions.We report a novel case of endoscopic ethanol ablation of a peripheral nerve sheath tumor presenting as a small bowel obstruction.

Ethanol has historically been used as an ablative agent for a variety of lesions. One of the more common applications of this technique is celiac plexus neurolysis; however, recent reports have suggested a role for the endoscopic alcohol ablation of a variety of solid and cystic lesions. We report a novel case of endoscopic ethanol ablation of a peripheral nerve sheath tumor presenting as a small bowel obstruction.

Figure 2: Obstructive lesion shown on EGD.

Mentions: A 67-year-old man with a history of morbid obesity presented with symptoms of small bowel obstruction including abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Computed tomography (CT) was concerning for a duodenal mass (Figure 1), which was confirmed by endoscopy and EUS to be a 4-cm hypoechoic mass with cystic spaces (Figure 2). Fine-needle aspiration revealed spindle-shaped cells positive for S100 and negative for CD117 and CD24, consistent with a peripheral nerve sheath tumor.
