Duodenal obstruction caused by the long-term recurrence of appendiceal goblet cell carcinoid

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A 38-year-old Japanese man who had been diagnosed with appendiceal carcinoid and undergone ileocecal resection 8 years before presented with duodenal obstruction caused by a submucosal tumor-like appearance. He was diagnosed with long-term recurrence of appendiceal goblet cell carcinoid (GCC) with a multimorphological pattern based on the histological assessment of a duodenal biopsy and his previously resected appendix. He underwent subtotal stomach-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with resection of an ileo-colic anastomotic lesion. The GCC recurred at the nearby ileo-colic anastomosis and invaded the duodenum. This late recurrence might have resulted from the unique features of his GCC, which contained cells with different degrees of malignancy.
