    Patients presenting with large obstructing extrahepatic biliary tumors often are presumed to have cholangiocarcinoma and are labeled with a grim disease with a poor prognosis, given little hope for a cure, and may actually opt for palliative care only. In some instances, however, the diagnosis...

    Patients with limited hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer can potentially be cured by resection. A number of patients deemed resectable by standard imaging procedures are found to have extrahepatic disease at laparotomy and are thus unresectable. A test capable of identifying these...

    Fluorine-18 fluoro-deoxy-glucose positron emission tomography (F-18 FDG PET) is not sensitive modality for the diagnosis of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, FDG-PET imaging may be useful in the identification of extrahepatic metastases. We report an interesting image of HCC with...

    Abstract??Liver tissue ectopia is a well-documented phenomenon. Rarely, hepatocellular carcinoma arises from the ectopic liver tissue. In this paper, we report a case of a primary, well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma arising from ectopic liver tissue in the pancreas. The patient is a...
