  • Look Inside

 A 72-year-old man visited the Saitama Chuo hospital on,July 15,1980, with the chief complaints of palpable mass at the right lower quadrant and lower abdominal pain, which had started since May,1980. In laboratoy findings, the feces was positive for occult blood.

 A supine double contrast view revealed a tumortype lesion with shallow irregular depressions and several nodes of smooth margin at ileum end. Prone double contract film demonstrated a smooth and large polypoid lesion at the oral site of the ileo-cecal valve. Endoscopic picture revealed a submucosal tumor with multiple erosions and linear ulcer at the under lip of the ileo-cecal valve, which is prolapsed to the cecum.

Colonofiberscopic picture showed a narrow segment because of protuberant growth lesion with irregular ulceration of the surface at the ileum end. Biopsy performed twice was negative for malignancy. Operation was performed on July 30, 1980 with a suspected diagnosis of malignant lymphoma. Right hemicolectomy-curative operative (R3) was done(N1, H0 P0 S2).

 In the resected ileum end and right side colon, there was an elastic and hard gyros-like tumor of the ileum end with erosions and shallow ulcerations, socalled the protuberant growth, measuring about 85×75X30mm, which was well demarcated. The tumor cell infilerated into the serosa and two out of eight regional lymph nodes were invaded. According to Rye's classification of Hodgkin's disease, the tumor belongs histologically to the lymphocytic depletion type.
