Alternative Treatments for Linitis Plastica of the …
Linitis plastica — also known as Brinton's disease, leather bottle stomach, or gastric scirrhous carcinoma — is a morphological variant of infiltrating stomach cancer. This rare malignant (cancerous) disorder is a form of adenocarcinoma and accounts for approximately 3 to 19 percent of all gastric adenocarcinoma cases.
The significance of a nineteenth century definition in the
· Linitis plastica due to gastric adenocarcinoma is a condition with a long history, but still lacks a standardized definition and is commonly confused with Borrmann type IV, Lauren diffuse, and signet-cell type gastric cancer. The absence of a clear definition is a problem when investigating its biological characteristics and role as a possible independent factor for prognosis.

JCM | Free Full-Text | Diagnostic Value of EUS-Guided Fine
Due to the tendency of gastric linitis plastica (GLP) to cause extensive submucosal infiltration, a superficial endoscopic biopsy sometimes yields no evidence of malignancy, hindering definite diagnosis. The present study was a single-center retrospective analysis of 54 consecutive patients diagnosed with GLP between 2016 and 2020 to evaluate EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration …

A case report of gastric linitis plastica diagnosed by
· There is currently no consensus on the ideal method for obtaining deep tissue biopsy material of advanced gastric LP. EUS-FNA has potential as a useful diagnostic method. Thus, we report the case of a 46-year-old male with advanced gastric linitis plastica (LP) who was diagnosed using endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA).

infiltrative growth, a characteristic of diffuse gastric adenocarcinoma, produces a rigid, leather-bottle stomach known as linitis plastica (up to 14% of advanced gastric malignancies).5 Intestinal gastric adenocarcinoma tends to arise in an older population and affects men more commonly (M:F ratio 2:1). It is common in endemic

Secondary linitis plastica of the rectum: EUS features and
· The LGI endoscopic appearance varies but typically appears as diffuse wall thickening, with rigidity mimicking that of linitis plastica; therefore, the term secondary linitis plastica of the rectum has been used. 6 Patients may also have a Crohn's disease–like appearance or focal nodularity. 6 The CT features include concentric bowel-wall

• Flexible endoscopy reveals partial collapse of a flaccid supraglottic airway with inspiration. • If present, gastroesophageal reflux, should be managed. • Laryngomalacia is generally benign and selflimited, as most cases resolve by 18 months of age. • Surgical intervention is advised for either respiratory distress or failure to thrive
Development and internal validation of a diagnostic score
· Background There is no consensual definition for gastric linitis plastica (GLP). We aim to construct a diagnostic score to distinguish this rare tumor from usual gastric adenocarcinomas. Methods In this retrospective study, all patients who had gastrectomy for cancer between 2007 and 2017 in French tertiary centers were included. The outcome was a …

blockage. Endoscopy showed recurrent stomach cancer with complete blockage of the stomach. In March 2000 she died. In summary, this patient was originally diagnosed with a transmural poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of the stomach, described as linitis plastica, with spread to a lymph node and with both surgical margins positive.

· ESGE suggests obtaining at least 10 bite-on-bite biopsies in cases of suspected gastric linitis plastica, targeting mucosal abnormalities. Weak recommendation, low quality of evidence. ESGE suggests that, where there are negative biopsies and a persisting suspicion of gastric linitis plastica, endoscopy with more extensive biopsies can be repeated.
