    Abstract: In a 68-year-old Japanese man, a gastric polyp 24mm in diameter with a stalk 15 mm in diameter was diagnosed as well differentiated adenocarcinoma and treated by endoscopic polypectomy. Histologically, most of the resected tissue was adenoma, and atypical cells were papillarily...

    Epithelial colon polyps are largely divided into hyperplastic and adenomatous polyps. Adenomatous polyps are premalignant lesions, whereas hyperplastic polyps are regarded as benign lesions. However, this histological classification has been blurred, as cases of malignant changes in hyperplastic...

    We describe a hyperplastic polyp of the common bile duct, found in a 45-yr-old Japanese woman. Endoscopic retrograde sphincterotomy and intraductal biopsy yielded a histological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma, pre-operatively. However, final diagnosis after pancreatoduodenectomy proved to be...

    The purpose of this study was to determine the rate of cancer in a modern series of colorectal polyps. All pathology reports from colon and rectal polyps from 1999 to 2002 were reviewed. Reports of bowel resections, cancer-free polyps, and polyp-free mucosal biopsies were excluded. Polyps were...

    A 3 cm polyp of the gastric greater curvature formed by a histiocytoma (fibroxanthoma) was discovered in a 62-year-old, diabetic, chronically-ill woman undergoing evaluation for anemia. The histology of the endoscopic biopsy of this lesion mimicked a signet ring adenocarcinoma as the mucosa was...

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the frequency and intensity of eosinophilic infiltration (or tissue eosinophilia) in the stroma of colonic adenomas, hyperplastic polyps, and colorectal adenocarcinomas. Eosinophilic infiltration in various malignancies has been...

    Diminutive hyperplastic polyps are the most common non-neoplastic lesions of the colon. Typically, they are small (<0.5 cm) sessile lesions, lack cellular atypia, and are found predominantly in the rectosigmoid region of the colon. Multiple large hyperplastic polyps (>1 cm) are rare. Although...

    Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS) is a rare nonhereditary disorder with gastrointestinal polyposis and associated ectodermal changes. This report documents a 59-year-old Japanese man with CCS who underwent a total gastrectomy for gastric tumors. The resected specimen showed a huge gastric...
