BACKGROUND Having a broad differential and knowing how to manage the different possibilities in a patient with chest pain is important. Esophageal bezoars are rare entities and are even less common in patients without any recent hospitalizations, known achalasia, or nasogastric tubes. Despite their rarity, having it in one's differential, and knowing how to manage it is important. CASE PRESENTATION This case presents a patient with mega-esophagus secondary to an esophageal bezoar; and runs throu...

BACKGROUND Primary liposarcoma arising from the liver is exceedingly rare. There have been very few reports documenting primary hepatic liposarcoma, especially of the pleomorphic subtype. Surgery is currently the only established treatment method, and the prognosis remains poor. In this report, we present an unusual case of hepatic liposarcoma of the pleomorphic subtype with literature review. In addition, we discuss theories regarding pathogenesis and the pathological and clinical features of p...
BACKGROUND Early gastric cancer (EGC) is often associated with lymphatic metastasis, but it is extremely rare to be found as a single giant lymph node. Cancer often becomes more malignant in metastatic lesions than in primary lesions, and retrodifferentiation to the fetal gastrointestinal tract during the metastatic process has been reported in gastric cancer. We report an extremely rare case of EGC with a 13-cm giant lymph node metastasis in which an adenocarcinoma with enteroblastic differenti...

BACKGROUND Soft coagulation is widely used for hemostasis because of its significant advantage in inducing tissue coagulation and denaturation without carbonization. However, a few cases of airway damage have been reported at the site, where soft coagulation was directly applied. CASE PRESENTATION We encountered an unusual case of delayed perforation of the intermediate bronchial trunk observed on 24 days after cauterization of the right S6 bulla adjacent to the bronchus. Chest computed tomograp...

BACKGROUND Primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of stomach is extremely rare. The pathogenesis of SCC of stomach remains unclear. There is only one report that Epstein Barr virus (EBV) infection may be involved in the pathogenesis of SCC arising in the stomach ever before. Here, we report a case of Epstein Barr virus infection-associated primary SCC of stomach in a 70-year-old woman. She was presented to the referring hospital with hematemesis. Initial endoscopy revealed a bleeding gastric ulce...

BACKGROUND The number of elderly patients with gastric cancer is increasing, with the very elderly often refusing radical gastrectomy with lymph node dissection. Such a patient presented to us and we proposed a palliative surgery involving gastric local resection using laparoscopy endoscopy cooperative surgery (LECS). CASE PRESENTATION An 89-year-old woman presented to our hospital with progressing anemia. She had an aortic arch replacement for aortic dissection 6 months previously and was takin...

BACKGROUND Pancreatic juice is constantly activated by contaminated bile in patients with pancreaticobiliary maljunction (PBM). Here, we report a case of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy for a patient with PBM and sphincterotomized papilla, resulting in fatal pancreatic fistula. CASE PRESENTATION A 79-year-old man was diagnosed with pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm and common bile duct stones. Endoscopic sphincterotomy was performed prior to surgery. The pancreatic duct was s...

Metanephric adenoma (MA) of the kidney is a rare benign neoplasm, which is mostly incidental-discovered during imaging studies for other clinical problems. However, this tumor may overlap in morphology with the papillary renal cell carcinoma and there are descriptions of metastatic disease. To date, fewer than 200 cases of MA have been reported worldwide and usually have a good prognosis. In the current report, a case of MA in a middle-aged lady is presented, which developed postoperative morbid...

BACKGROUND Intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) is a subtype of biliary tumor. The 5-year survival rate of patients with IPNB who underwent curative resection is 81%. However, IPNB is known to often recur in other parts of the bile duct. Nevertheless, its mechanism remains poorly understood. Herein, we report the case of a patient with recurrent IPNB, which was considered to be attributed to intraductal dissemination in the common bile duct at 12 months after curative resection...

SMARCA4 mutant non-small cell lung cancer (SMARCA4m-NSCLC) has a poor prognosis owing to rapid growth. Effective treatments for SMARCA4m-NSCLC have not yet been established. Recently, many preclinical studies support the hypothesis that SMARCA4m-NSCLC may be vulnerable to immune checkpoint inhibitors. Here, we report a patient with programmed death-ligand1 (PD-L1) highly expressive SMARCA4m-NSCLC who showed an extremely rapid and long-term response to pembrolizumab. He was referred to our hospit...
