Disease relevance of Duodenal Neoplasms

  • BACKGROUND: Although only 5 per cent of patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) die from duodenal cancer, a recent study indicated that the mortality rate is much higher in patients with Spigelman stage IV disease [1].
  • Fifteen patients with pancreatic cancer (14 head, 1 body) and 1 patient with duodenal cancer, (with paraaortic adenopathy), were subjected to combination treatment with infusional 5-FU, bolus injection of mitomycin-C, and XRT (4 patients were treated off the protocol) [2].
