Intramucosal colorectal carcinoma with invasion of the lamina propria: A study by the Japanese Society for Cancer of the Colon and Rectum

Cancer invasion of the lamina propria is an important pathological finding. However, the clinicopathologic features and diagnostic accuracy of intramucosal carcinoma assessment in colorectal carcinoma (CRC) are unknown. In this study, intramucosal CRCs were reviewed in institutions affiliated with the Japanese Society for Cancer of the Colon and Rectum, and 32 cases with invasion of the lamina propria were identified. Next, a consensus meeting was held to select cases with a high consensus about the presence of invasion, which were reviewed by one Western pathologist for confirmation.
