Local recurrence with secondary bone dissemination after a total extirpation of the rectum in a case of an anal carcinoma
- Krasteva, N. Tocev
The rate of locoregional recurrences in rectal carcinomas depends on the stage of the disease and it is around 20%. Local recurrence may develop in the anastomosis (anastomotic recurrence), in unremoved draining lymph nodes (lymph node recurrence), as well as in the surrounding tissues of the former tumor bed (extraluminal recurrence). The case in this report describes a local recurrence in the bed of the rectum after Miles’ abdominoperineal resection in patient with anal carcinoma. The diagnosis was made using magnetic resonance tomography.
