Abstract

The incidence of hepatobiliary malignancies, and especially intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC), for patients with Wilson's disease (WD), is very low, even for cirrhotic patients. A 44-year-old male was admitted to our department for treatment of a liver tumor. He was diagnosed with WD at the age of 15. According to radiological findings, his liver tumor was a suspected hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or a combined hepatocellular and cholangiocellular carcinoma. A partial resection of liver segments 8 (S8) and 5 (S5) was subsequently performed due to the intraoperative suspicion of intrahepatic metastasis at the surface of S5. Postoperative histology revealed that the resected portion of S8 contained an ICC; the removed S5 portion comprised a regenerative nodule with hemosiderosis. To date, the patient has survived without tumor recurrence for more than 44 months following surgery. A survey of the literature, inclusive of case reports, would suggest that surgical resection is the primary course of action for a WD patient with ICC, if liver function can be preserved and curative resection performed.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 March 2016.
All research outputs
#18,449,393
of 22,858,915 outputs
Outputs from Surgical Case Reports
#175
of 488 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#220,000
of 300,567 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgical Case Reports
#7
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,858,915 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 488 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 0.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 300,567 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
