Metastatic Fibrolamellar Hepatocellular Carcinoma to the Pancreas

Hepatocelluar usual markers for liver disease – aspartate aminotransferaseheppatocelular aminotransferase and alkaline phosphatase – are often normal or only slightly elevated. Journal of hepatology ; 56 4: Cecil Tratado de medicina interna.

It is characterized histologically by well-differentiated malignant hepatic cells with abundant eosinophilic and granular cytoplasm due to the presence of numerous mitochondria, and by the presence of fibrous stroma arranged in thin parallel lamellae interspersed between tumor cells [ 1 ].

While sites of recurrence usually include the liver, regional lymph nodes, peritoneum, and lung [ 6 ], metastasis to the pancreas is extremely rare, with only 2 other cases reported in the literature to our knowledge [ 78 ].

Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma is a distinct histological variant of hepatocellular carcinoma characterised on microscopy by laminated fibrous layers between the tumor cells. Radiology ; 2: Edit article Share article View revision history. Hepatomegaly is usually evident as these masses are typically large. Radiology ; 1: This disease was first described by Edmondson in a year-old female with no underlying liver disease.


At that time he underwent a routine physical examination, where he was noted to have a positive skin test for tuberculosis.

His AFP level was normal. Differential diagnosis of tumors and tumor-like lesions of liver in infancy and childhood. We present varcinoma case of a year-old male with no previous medical history. The surgical pathology from the resected specimens showed focal thin fibrous bands within the metastatic foci; however, definitive diagnostic features of a fibrolamellar variant of HCC were not identified within the metastatic lesions.

This prompted the use of a gauge needle, obtaining adequate specimens, and pathology revealed metastatic FL-HCC fig. In our case, the possibility of performing an abdominal contrast sonography helped to establish the diagnosis, which was confirmed by histological and analytical studies.

First-choice treatment is surgical resection 1,5. The patient was then referred for evaluation and diagnosis of the pancreatic mass by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration EUS-FNA.

Immunohistochemical studies have found that FL-HCC expresses markers associated with biliary CK7 and epithelial membrane antigen and hepatic hepar-1 and glypican-3 differentiation as well as markers associated with hepatic stem cells CD and CD44 hepatocelulxr help differentiate it fibolamelar conventional HCC [ 1213 ].
