The ultrasonographic and computed tomography features of four cases of solid and papillary epithelial neoplasm (SPEN) - a rare pancreatic tumour - are described. Although not diagnostic, the presence of these imaging features in the typical clinical setting may permit pre-operative radiological diagnosis and facilitate planning for curative surgery for this malignant tumour which has an excellent prognosis even without further adjuvant therapy.(Au)

We describe the clinico-pathological features and discuss the possible pathogenetic mechanism of thyroid papillary carcinoma arising in a branchial cleft cyst. This has been described only once previously in the literature. (AU)

Papillary cystic tumor is an uncommon neoplasm of the pancreas which has only been described recently. This report describes five such cases seen at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI). The clinico-pathological features were typical in all these cases. The literature of this condition is also reviewed. (AU)

The clinical and pathological findings in 35 cases of endometrial carcinoma observed over a 13-year period (1953-1966) at the University Hospital of the West Indies are described. The study has confirmed the impression that carcinoma of the uterine body is a relatively uncommon form of malignancy in Jamaica, accounting for only 2 per cent of female malignancies and 6 per cent of uterine cancers. The clinical and pathological data are compared with those of other reported series, and found to be essentially similar. Malignant change in polyps was observed in 14 per cent of cases. Extended total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy produced the best results. Local recurrences were significantly reduced when surgery was combined with post-operative radiation. All six cases with adenoacanthoma showed myometrial invasion, and the squamous component (metaplastic and neoplastic) was associated with glands of varying degrees of differentiation (AU)
