Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) represents less than 3% of gastrointestinal malignancies. However, it is the most common mesenchymal tumor of the digestive tract. GIST is characterized by the expression tyrosine kinase CD117, which differentiates it from other mesenchymal tumors such as leiomyomas, leio-miosarcomas, leiomyoblastoma and neurogenic tumors that do not express this protein. 70-80% of the GIST are benign and located mostly in the stomach and small intestine (> 90%).They can also arise from any portion of the digestive tract, mesentery, omentum and retroperitoneum...

BACKGROUND: Carbohydrate 19.9 antigen (CA19.9) has been used in the diagnosis and followup of gastrointestinal tumours. The aim of this prospective longitudinal study was the evaluation of CA19.9 levels in patients with chronic hepatitis and hepatic cirrhosis hepatitis C virus and B virus correlated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 180 patients were enrolled, 116 with HCV-related chronic liver disease (48% chronic hepatitis, 52% cirrhosis) and 64 with HBV-related chronic liver disease (86% chronic hepatitis, 14% cirrhosis)...

UNLABELLED: The liver abscess (LA) continues to cause a high morbidity and mortality worldwide. OBJECTIVES: To determine demographic characteristics, clinical presentation, imaging and management at the Arzobispo Loayza Hospital in 5 years. METHODS: A descriptive retrospective study, based on medical records of patients diagnosed with LA between January 2003 to December 2007. RESULTS: Of 106 medical records reviewed, 46 entered the study...

Cloacal exstrophy and Gollop-Wolfgang complex are very rare pathologies and their association has been reported in only one patient. We present a case of a newborn of indeterminate sex with anomalies of the lower limbs, and an anterior abdominal wall defect. External genitalia were not observed, ectrodactyly of lower limbs, omphalocele, lipomeningocele and imperforate anus were detected. During the diagnostic and therapeutic surgery other anomalies were found, such as vesical exstrophy, cecal fistula, uterine duplication, vaginal agenesis, urethral agenesis, ectopic ureters, stenosis of the left ureter, biphid clitoris and patent urachus...

OBJECTIVES: To study the performance of the intraoperative ecography in the diagnosis of new liver metastases in the era of computerized tomography (CT) with multidetectors and its impact on the surgical operation. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Between February 2005 and April 2006 patients with resectable liver metastases where studied prospectively in a multidisciplinary meeting (surgeons, radiologist, oncologist). The preoperative CT findings were compared with the intraoperative findings and ultrasound study and the results of the surgical operation...

According to autopsy data, diffuse hepatic infiltration occurs in up to 50% of cases with multiple myeloma. However, focal infiltration (single or multiple), although exceptional, is also possible. Therefore, multiple myeloma should be included in the extensive differential diagnosis of space-occupying liver lesions. We present the case of a 71-year-old man diagnosed with multiple myeloma with multiple focal lesions in the liver and spleen studied by different imaging techniques (ultrasound, multi-phase computed tomography and magnetic resonance)...

We present a retrospective and descriptive study of 21 surgeries of echinocociosis of the liver, corresponding to 30% of a universe of 70 patients that were studied at HMC from 1990 to 1999; other places were 67% in the lung, 1.5% in peritoneal cavity and 1.5% in the spleen.We analyzed frequency in relation to sex, age, origin of the patient, clinical findings, serological tests, radiological tests, abdominal ecography, CT, surgical procedure, morbility and mortality and stay at hospital.These are the results:The average age was 29 years; 76...

We evaluated the clinical and epidemiological data of 142 HBsAg carriers. This prospective trial is part of a program of study and follow-up in HVB patients. The median age was 34.58 years old, males 56.3%. The average follow-up was 32.4 months. Complete clinical history, routine analysis, liver function tests, alfa-fetoprotein, serology for HVB, HCV and HDV and abdominal ecography were done in all patients. DNA-HVB was done only in special cases. Patients with less than 6 months of follow-up were excluded...

The combination between ecography and fine needle aspiration biopsy has greatly speeded up diagnostic procedures. Often this technique is better than other more invasive and expensive investigations, such as angiography and laparotomy, for its high diagnostic accuracy, the limited upsetting of the patient, the absence of serious complications and the simplicity to perform it. Here are some information on the technique, on the indications and on the complications of the procedure. The results of 263 cases of abdominal biopsy are presented...

Nine obese patients (4M/5F) showing on a standard chest-X-ray a right subdiaphragmatic radiolucent area were submitted to ecography. This method excluded pathologic causes and showed adipose tissue as the cause of the increased distance between diaphragm and liver. Besides, ecography showed some limits in the evaluation of adipose area, because of the difficulty in studying obese patients.

This article reports on a consecutive series of 3627 breast cancer (BC) patients undergoing preoperative staging by chest x-ray (CXR), bone x-ray (BXR) or bone scintigraphy (BS), and liver ecography (LE) or liver scintigraphy (LS). The detection rate (DR) of preclinical asymptomatic distant metastases depended on the T and N category (TNM classification system), and was very low (CXR: 0.30%, BXR: 0.64%, BS: 0.90%, LE: 0.24%, LS: 0.23%). The sensitivity, determined after a 6-month follow-up, was below 0.50% for all tests...

Two cases of hepatic human fascioliasis, both with antecedents of eating watercress, hepatobiliary symptoms and high eosinophilia are described. In the first one (42 year-old male), at the beginning the abdominal ecotomographical and computed tomography images suggested an hepatic tumor, but afterwards, the finding of Fasciola hepatica ova in feces and the observation of numerous typical images of the fluke in the choledochus by means of an endoscopic cholangiography, plus lesions related to a Löffler syndrome detected in a chest radiography, lead to the diagnosis of hepatic fascioliasis...
