Abstract Mixed adeno-neuroendocrine cancer (MANEC) term was introduced for the first time in WHO Classification of Gastrointestinal tumors in 2010. It represents a very rare neoplasm assessing about the 0.2% of all gastrointestinal cancer. The perioperative management is very challenging because of the poor knowledge of the biology of this cancer and the relative impossibility to make a diagnosis only by the biopsy during the colonoscopy. In this paper we present the case of a 83- year- old woman affected by right colon sited neoplasm with liver metastasis, which resulted to be a MANEC. The patient underwent to laparoscopic right colectomy and wedge resection of liver metastasis. The post-operative period was uneventful, and the patient was fit to be discharged at third post-operative day. A literature review about the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of right colon sited MANEC has been carried out and only eight papers about right sited MANEC have been found.

Abstract

Abstract Mixed adeno-neuroendocrine cancer (MANEC) term was introduced for the first time in WHO Classification of Gastrointestinal tumors in 2010. It represents a very rare neoplasm assessing about the 0.2% of all gastrointestinal cancer. The perioperative management is very challenging because of the poor knowledge of the biology of this cancer and the relative impossibility to make a diagnosis only by the biopsy during the colonoscopy. In this paper we present the case of a 83- year- old woman affected by right colon sited neoplasm with liver metastasis, which resulted to be a MANEC. The patient underwent to laparoscopic right colectomy and wedge resection of liver metastasis. The post-operative period was uneventful, and the patient was fit to be discharged at third post-operative day. A literature review about the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of right colon sited MANEC has been carried out and only eight papers about right sited MANEC have been found.
