Micro papillary carcinoma (MC) has been recently recognized as a rare distinctive variant of adenocarcinoma. It is considered as an aggressive variant with a high incidence of lymph node metastasis, only few cases of colorectal MC have been reported. Recently it has been officially recognized in WHO classification We present a case of MC of the sigmoid colon with extensive lymph node metastasis. A 61-year-old female patient was admitted with a complaint of acute abdomen diagnosed as MC of the sigmoid colon. The patient underwent Left hemi colectomy with lymph node dissection.


Invasive micro papillary carcinoma of the colon; Aggressive


Invasive micro papillary carcinoma (IMPC) has been recently recognized by WHO as a rare distinctive and aggressive variant of adenocarcinoma. With high incidence of lymph node and distant metastasis, it was first described in breast, but recently been reported in other organs such as lungs, urinary bladder, ovaries or salivary glands. It carries worse Prognosis than conventional colorectal carcinoma [1]. Pathologically it is characterized by mall clusters of malignant cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and pleomorphic nuclei, micropapillae inhabit lacunar-like spaces and demonstrate a "reverse polarity" configuration, with apical surfaces facing the periphery rather than the center. However, vigorous immunohistochemical staining for endothelial or lymphatic markers has been negative [1-3]. In most cases, it usually accompanied by variable component of conventional and mucinous carcinoma. Patients with IMPC usually present with higher-stage disease while here we report a case of IMPC of the sigmoid colon with immunohistochemical studies.

Case Report

61-year-old Saudi female patient known to have diabetes, hypertension on treatment. Presented to ER with a history of abdominal pain and distension constipation for ten days duration. Three days prior to the admission she developed obstipation. On the day of admission her symptoms get worst and started to be anuric for 24 hours and she got chest pain. She gave a history of significant weight loss and appetite during last 2 years. Five months ago she sought medical advice at private hospital, stool analysis showed occult blood, colonoscopy done and it revealed sigmoid mass, and she was advised for surgery. On examination patient looks very ill, dehydrated, the abdomen distended, tense, guard, bowelsound absent. Her investigation show CBC: WBC 6, HB: 11.3, Chemistry: urea 64 Creatinine 2 ABG: showed metabolic acidosis. X-ray abd: free air under diaphragm (Figure 1). The patient started to reinstated with IVF, correct acidosis, foly’s catheter inserted, no urine output, nephro consultation done and cardiology assessment pre-operative done. The patient started on antibiotics Tazocine and Flagyl. The patient pushed for urgent laparotomy. Intra operative found gush of pussy fluid come out contaminated with large bowel contents and fibrinous and haemorrhagic adhesion between small bowel loop and urinary bladder, uterus and adnexal structure. Fibrinous tissue completely covering the liver and the spleen, intra looplar abscess. Primary resection was done with heartman pouch procedure done. Post-operative the patient was admitted to ICU, keep her on ventilator and supportive measure. On the third day she got leak at site of colostomy where push again to OR for revision of colostomy. After that she was kept in ICU her general condition mildly improved with drop in white blood cells, but still she was on sepsis. Drain was brought serous fluid. Ultrasound was done twice post-operative, proved no intra-abdominal collection so drain removed. We found perforation at recto sigmoid junction proximal to constructing lesion at this area. She passed away due to sever sepsis and advanced tumour.

Pathological and Immunohistochemical Finding

Macroscopic examination show hemicolectomy composed of part of sigmoid and rectum. Sigmoid colon measures 19 × 5 × 3 cm. On opening showing fungating necrotic mass that measure about 9 × 3 cm. The tumor is shown grossly infiltrated into muscle and fat. Microscopically characterized by Small clusters of malignant cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and pleomorphic nuclei Micro papillae inhabit lacunar-like spaces and demonstrate a "reversepolarity" configuration, with apical surfaces facing the periphery rather than the center (Figure 2).


Figure 2: Tumor consisting of several neoplastic Cells without a fibrovascular core proliferating into the stroma was observed. Tumor clusters were surrounded by clear empty spaces. (Original magnification 100X).

No fibrovascular core in the micropapillae (Figure 3). Furthermore, abundant neutrophils were frequently found mainly within and occasionally surrounding the micropapillae, forming microabscess but not “dirty necrosis” which is typically associated with conventional colorectal carcinoma, giving comedonecrosis like area that is seen mainly in breast. DCIS Mucinous area about 10% was noted.

46 positive lymph nodes are identified. Some of which show extracapsular extension. The apical lymph node are 7 positive lymph node, Interestingly, Immunohisto-chemically, as in conventional colorectal carcinoma, the tumor cells were positive for, CK20, monoclonal CDX2, CD10, and villin; (Figure 4) and negative for CK7. Although, reversed polarity was demonstrated by positive CD10 and villin immunostaining on the stroma-facing surfaces of the micro papillae. Furthermore, endothelial marker (CD31) was negative in the tumor cluster at the lacunar space, but positive in true lympho vascular invasion.

MPC has been first described in breast later on it has been recognized in urinary bladder, lung, and salivary gland tissues [4,5-7]. Recently approximately 265 cases of colon cancer with IMPC have been reported. It accounts for about 9%-19% of all colon cancers, most common in males aged 53-72 with 3/1 male to female predominance. Clinical symptoms in those are not specific and mainly include abdominal pain, anemia, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation and bleeding from the rectum [8-13]. These tumours usually have exophytic growth with a centrally ulcerating crater [14]. Microscopically it shows neoplastic cells form small tight clusters surrounded by clear spaces which devoid of fibrovascular cores. IMPC of the colon is aggressive tumour usually high lymph node metastasis and high local recurrence, [13]. All IMPCs have a typical growth pattern with reversed polarity where the stromal-facing (basal) surface of the tumour demonstrated by MUC1, CD10 and villin, although other immunostains are still maintained, which is helpful to determine the primary of metastatic IMPC [14]. (Positive CK20, CDX2, and villin; negative CK7) the lacunar-like spaces were negative for endothelial marker CD31. Electron microscopic examination revealing microvilli at the surface of the cells facing stroma [2]. Our case uniquely showed abundant neutrophils within and around micropapillae. We believe that this is analogous to “dirty necrosis” characteristically associated with colorectal carcinoma. However, in the micropapillae the neutrophilic infiltrate manifested more like microabscesses rather than “dirty necrosis”.


Our case is among the first reported cases of invasive micropapillary carcinoma of the colorectal adenocarcinoma in the literature. It is a rare but distinct variant of adenocarcinoma that shares histologic and immunohistochemical features of IMPC in other sites.
