This article cites a study conducted to analyse time trends for incidence and mortality of patients with small bowel cancers in Scotland from 1975-99 and the morphology and subsite patterns from 1997-99. Results of the study suggest that small intestinal cancers in Scotland occur mainly in the elderly and have a male predominance. The trend is one of increased incidence and reduced mortality. Adenocarcinomas and malignant carcinoid tumours are the commonest cancers and occur most frequently in the duodenum and ileum respectively.

    Aims Microcarcinoids refer to microscopic nests of monotonous cells with endocrine and squamoid features. Their peculiar morphology can appear infiltrative with a desmoplastic-like background, raising concerns for an infiltrating adenocarcinoma. To further characterise microcarcinoids, we...

    Carcinoid tumors are slow-growing and usually become symptomatic late in the course of the disease. We evaluated our 10-year experience in the management of GI carcinoid tumors. The records of 133 patients with GI carcinoids were reviewed. The rectum was the most common site for carcinoid tumors...

    Duodenal carcinoids are rare tumours. There is an increased incidence of primary carcinomas, especially in the gastrointestinal tract, which occur synchronously with gastrointestinal tract carcinoids. However, the synchronous occurrence of adenocarcinoma of the gastro-oesophageal junction with a...

    Background: Plasma biomarkers may be particularly useful as a predictor or early marker of clinical response to treatment in addition to radiological imaging. Cytokeratin 18 (CK18) is an epithelial-specific cytokeratin that undergoes cleavage by caspases during apoptosis....
