A 68-year-old man with abdominal mass and anorexia was diagnosed with transvers colon cancer invading the abdominal wall. Considering the difficulty of curative resection, we first performed ileostomy. After surgery, the patient received mFOL FOX6 with bevacizumab as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. After 10 course of the regimen, computed tomography revealed shrinkage of the lesion, with the efficacy evaluated as a partial response. The patient underwent right hemicolectomy and partial resection of the abdominal wall...

The patient, 49-year-old woman, who was referred to our hospital in August 2016 because of left abdominal pain. The abdominal CT scan showed a large tumor, over 10 cm dimeter at splenic flexure of the transverse colon, and colonoscopy detected transvers colon cancer(por, cT4b, cN1, M0, cStage III A). There was no distant metastasis, although invasion to the retroperitoneum and the abdominal wall. Left hemicolectomy was successfully performed with D3 lymph node dissection. Pathological diagnosis was endocrine cell carcinoma, pT4a(SE), pN0, M0, pStage II ...

A 40-year-old woman presented with severe vaginal bleeding. Initial workup with an abdominal sonography revealed endometrium for about 3 mm and free fluid in the abdomen. Hemodynamic instability with abdominal pain and free fluid in the abdomen prompted blood transfusion and laparotomy. There were about 1000 cc blood and clots in the abdomen at laparotomy. There was a longitudinal rupture from fundus up to cervix at the left side of the uterus. Tearing was in full thickness from serosa to endometrium. Scar of previous cesarean was transvers and not associated with this tearing...

A 70-year-old woman who complained of abdominal pain and a prolapsed tumor from the anus was diagnosed with an intestinal obstruction resulting from anal canal cancer. Computed tomography(CT)and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a huge tumor(11×5×12 cm)invading the vagina and levator ani muscle. Enlarged inguinal lymph nodes on both sides indicated metastasis. The clinical stage was T4b(vagina, levator ani muscle, and pudenda)N0H0M1a(LYM), stageⅣ (Japanese Classification of Colorectal Carcinoma: 8th edition)...

Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma is a slowly growing soft tissue neoplasm that shows benign histologic features but may have clinical course of malignant disease. It has been reported to occur in the thigh, inguinal area, axilla, shoulder, neck, perineum or buttock. However, there have been few cases of abdominal organ involvement. A 21-year-old woman presented with a large palpable abdominal mass. A 7×4 cm sized round soft tissue tumor at right upper quadrant area was identified by abdominopelvic CT scan.

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to assess and document the dimensions of the normal spleen measured on computed tomography (CT) images with the normal splenic volume measured by Cavalieri principle on CT images and thereby serve as a baseline for comparison in cases of splenomegaly using abdominal CT. To investigate the relationship between these changes and body mass index, gender, abdominal diameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed abdominal CT examinations of 212 adults between the ages of 20 and 88 years...

Gallstone ileus is a complication of cholelithiasis resulting from a fistula between the gallbladder and the gastrointestinal tract. If sufficiently large, a gallstone may lodge at the narrowest part of the gastrointestinal tract, usually the terminal ileum, and present with small bowel obstruction. Here the authors present the unusual case of an 82-year-old man who developed symptoms and signs of large bowel obstruction due to an untreated gallstone, measuring 7×4.5 cm, that fistulated into the transvere colon and subsequently impacted in the sigmoid colon...

PURPOSE: The frequency of anatomic variations of the colon detected on abdominal CT scans was examined. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 296 consequtive abdominal tomography were evaluated prospectively for the presence of retrorenal colon, retrogastric (pancreaticogastric interposition or retrosplenic) colon, high positioned colon, interposition of the colon between the psoas muscle and the kidney and hepatodiaphragmatic interposition (anterior or posterior). RESULTS: We observed 2 retrogastric colon [1 pancreaticogastric (0...
