  • Leiomyosarcoma

    In conclusion, primary pancreatic leiomyosarcoma is a rare and highly malignant tumor associated with poor prognosis.[] Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are rare sinonasal malignant tumours with 20 cases of nasal LMS previously reported in the literature.[] Primary cardiac sarcomas are rare malignant tumours and among them, leiomyosarcoma is extremely rare. They are especially rare in a young age group.[]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Colon

    Metastases to the breast from extramammary malignancies are rare.[] The role of CT in the diagnosis of gastrocolic fistula is also discussed.[] In children, primary AC of the colon is very rare; colonic AC occurring as a second malignancy in a child is rarer still.[]

  • Gastric Ulcer

    Persistence of symptoms post-PPI therapy should lead the clinician to suspect failure of H. pylori eradication, malignancy, or rare causes such as Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome[] Also, gastrojejunal fistula was visualized after wide opening of hepatogastric and gastrocolic ligament.[] Could my duodenal ulcer possibly be a malignancy? No. Duodenal cancer is very rare and does not resemble duodenal cancer at all.[]

  • Gastric Leiomyosarcoma

    The difficulties in the preoperative diagnosis of this rare malignancy are discussed.[] Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are extremely rare malignant neoplasms that originate from smooth muscle cells and may be considered the malignant counterpart of a leiomyoma.[] Visit for more related articles at Journal of Neurological Disorders Abstract Introduction: Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are rare malignant neoplasms with smooth muscle differentiation[]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    Malignant degeneration rarely occurs.[] Paraduodenal pancreatitis in heterotopic pancreas is a rare condition and few cases of malignant transformation are described.[] Pancreatoblastomas - These rare malignant neoplasms predominantly occur in children. The reason for this is unknown.[]

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Accordingly, in chronic ulcerative colitis, benign (not malignant ) strictures of the colon occur only rarely.[] Malignancy: The risk of colon cancer in ulcerative colitis begins to rise significantly above that of the general population after approximately 8 to 10 years of diagnosis[] Toxic mega-colon (acute without obstructive dilation of the colon): Although rare, toxic mega colon is a life-threatening complication of ulcerative colitis and requires urgent[]
