    ABSTRACT: We report an extremely rare case of metastatic biliary polypoid thrombus with hepatic metastases from renal cell carcinoma. A 74-year-old man was admitted with a low-grade fever and obstruction of the left hepatic duct. He had undergone left nephrectomy 17 years previously due to a diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma. A preoperative diagnosis of left hepatic duct carcinoma was made, and a left lobectomy and left caudate lobectomy with right biliary anastomosis of jejunal loop were performed. The resected specimen showed a polypoid mass in the left hepatic duct with metastases in the caudate lobe, and a histological examination revealed both tumors to be clear cell-type renal cell carcinoma. The mechanism of biliary metastatic thrombus formation was speculated to be as follows: caudate lobe metastases invade the adjacent bile ducts, and a tumor fragment in the bile duct then becomes implanted in the intraluminal left hepatic duct, thus leading to the growth of the biliary polypoid thrombus.

    ABSTRACT: This report describes the case of a 47-year-old Japanese man with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection with AIDS, who was successfully treated for gastric cancer. A review of gastric cancer associated with HIV is also presented. Prior to surgical treatment, azidothymidine (AZT), nerfinavir (NFV), and lamivudine (3TC) were administered to the patient in order to improve his blood CD4 count and reduce the viral burden. Consequently, distal gastrectomy was performed as a curative resection without any complications. The gastric cancer included a signet-ring cell carcinoma, as was noted in eight of the nine reported cases associated with HIV. This suggests that the HIV virus may play a role in causing signet-ring cell carcinoma, especially in the stomach.
