Combine hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma with pseudosarcomatous features is a rare primary liver tumor. We report a 46-year-old man who is a carrier of HBV and has presented intermittent severe abdominal pain on right upper quadrant for 6 days. Tumor markers, alpha-fetoprotein, CEA and CA19-9 were within normal ranges. Abdominal computed tomogram revealed a large heterogeneous mass in the posteroinferior segment of right liver without associated biliary dilatation and conglomerated, enlarged portocaval and peripancreatic lymph nodes. Right hepatectomy was performed with local lymph node dissection. The tumor, measuring 7.5 x 5.5 cm showed an ill demarcated round to oval shape and a variegated whitish yellow solid cut surface with necrosis. Microscopically, the tumor consisted of three components, hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma and undifferentiated sarcomatoid tumor cells. Immunohistochemically, hepatocellular carcinoma portion reacted positively with alpha-fetoprotein, cholangiocarcinoma portion reacted positively with bile duct-type cytokeratins (cytokeratin 7 and 19) and EMA. The pseudosarcomatous portion reacted with bile duct type cytokeratins and EMA. These findings suggested that pseudosarcomatous tumor cells may be with closely, associated primitive stem cells that can differentiate into the ductal epithelium.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A case of primary gastric choriocarcinoma with multiple liver metastases is described. A 54-year-old man underwent gastrectomy for an advanced cancer. An ulcerofungating tumor with extensive hemorrhagic necrosis was found in the anterior wall of the prepyloric antrum. The histologic examination revealed a biphasic pattern composed of uninucleated cyto or intermediate trophoblasts and syncytiotrophoblasts. A small area of the adenocarcinoma forming glandular structures and poorly differentiated solid sheets was also noted on the superficial portion of the tumor. Immunohistochemical staining for the beta human chorionic gonadotropin (-hCG) and the human placental lactogen (hPL) showed strong immunoreactivity, particularly in the cytoplasms of the syncytiotrophoblasts and intermediate trophoblasts, respectively. A diagnosis of the choriocarcinoma was made. Multiple hepatic nodules consistent with metastases were noted on the abdominal sonogram. The serum -hCG level of the patient was significantly increased.
