A 64-year-old woman presented to our hospital with subcutaneous tumors in the right thoracic region. After undergoing a thorough medical evaluation, she was diagnosed with multiple skin metastases arising from cancer of the descending colon. Surgical resection of the primary lesion was performed and FOLFIRI (5-fluorouracil, levofolinate calcium, irinotecan) and cetuximab chemotherapy for the metastases was initiated. The patient subsequently entered remission and did not experience any major side effects. This case report details an effective therapy for colon cancer with multiple skin metastases and presents a discussion of the expression profiles of epidermal growth factor receptor in both the primary and metastatic lesions.

We report herein on a case of idiopathic mesenteric phlebosclerosis with 8 years of free of symptoms. This case was of a 79-year-old man who had complained of right hypochondolargia about 8 years before. At that time, abdominal CT demonstrated calcification of the veins around ~the right side of the colon which was revealed subsequently with colonoscopy, showing an abnormal mucosal color on the right side of the colon. The histological findings of biopsy specimens showed that fibrous overgrowth was present in the mucosal layer. We made a diagnosis of phlebosclerotic colitis. The patient underwent colonoscopy after about 8 years of being free of symptom.
