The article provides information about endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). It is defined as local snare excision of the gastrointestinal wall's mucosa. EMR is indicated for lesions with noninvasive high-grade neoplasias that include high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia and well- and moderately differentiated intramucosal cancers with no evidence of local and regional lymph node metastasis on endoscopic ultrasound.

    Gangliocytic paraganglioma is a rare tumor, which occurs nearly exclusively in the second portion of the duodenum. Generally, this tumor has a benign clinical course, although rarely, it may recur or metastasize to regional lymph nodes. Only one case with distant metastasis has been reported. We...
