AIM To investigate the outcome and pattern of survivals of rectal cancer patients presenting a complete or nearly complete tumor response after neo-adjuvant treatment. METHODS Young surgeons <40 years old affiliated to the Italian Society of Surgical Oncology (YSICO) from 13 referral centers for colorectal cancer treatment, were invited to participate a(More)
Dear Editor: Signet-ring cell is a rare histology in colorectal cancer, approximately 1 %, and is associated with younger patient population, higher stage on presentation, and worse outcome compared to non-signet-ring cell carcinomas [1]. We report a case of a 29-year-old man with no comorbidities who underwent colonoscopy for hematochezia, tenesmus, and(More)
