Higher doses of radiotherapy may improve local control and overall survival in patients with inoperable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Journal of Clinical Oncology
We present a case of a hepatic sclerosing hemangioma in which an unusual magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) appearance lead to radiographic concern for gallbladder carcinoma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case in the literature of a hepatic sclerosing hemangioma mimicking a gallbladder carcinoma.

Foodborne parasites have long been a neglected group of pathogens, as they often have insidious, chronic effects, rather than being acute diseases, and they are often associated with impoverished or marginalized populations. In addition, due to the long incubation period for most foodborne parasites, source attribution is often difficult, if not impossible. However, global trends have enabled foodborne parasites to emerge in different populations in new locations, transmitted through different food types, and sometimes with unexpected symptoms. This emergence of foodborne parasites has brought them into f…

ConclusionsCapsule penetration and HVO on MRI are significantly worse imaging prognostic factors for post-operative outcomes in patients with IMCC. Incorporation of capsule penetration and HVO into a surgical staging system may improve prediction of the post-operative prognosis of IMCC.
ConclusionPatients with higher GPS, CA 125, and PLR levels, and a larger tumor size, tend to have unresectable tumors even if they were judged as potentially resectable using preoperative radiological examinations.
Whether operative treatment provides benefits for elderly patients with perihilar cholangiocarcinoma is unknown. The aim of this study was to review resection of perihilar cholangiocarcinoma according to age and to clarify its value for octogenarians.
