Primary adenocarcinoma of the duodenum. Report of two cases

Cancer

Abstract

Between 1969 and 1982, two patients were treated for malignant primary tumors of the duodenum in the Central Institute for Tumors and Allied Diseases in Zagreb. Adenocarcinoma of the posterior wall of the third part of the duodenum was histologically confirmed in the first patient. Today, 11 years after surgery and radiotherapy, there are no signs of the disease. Invasive papillary adenocarcinoma of the third part of the duodenum was histologically confirmed in the second patient. This patient died in cachexia 2 years after the diagnosis. The autopsy confirmed the initial diagnosis, and metastasis in the liver and periduodenal lymph nodes. When establishing the differential diagnosis of undefined pathologic processes in this region, one should consider a primary tumor of the duodenum. Palliative surgery can also be valuable in the overall outcome of treatment.

Cachexia & Brown Fat

Cachexia is a condition associated with progressive weight loss due to severe illness. In cancer patients, it is proposed to occur as a result of tumor-induced energy wasting. Several proteins have been implicated in browning and depletion of white adipose tissue. Here is the latest research on cachexia and brown fat.

Cardiac Cachexia

Cardiac cachexia is a syndrome associated with the progressive loss of muscle and fat mass. It most commonly affects patients with heart failure and can significantly decrease the quality of life and survival in these patients. Here is the latest research on cardiac cachexia.
