Laparoscopy shows superiority over endoscopy for early detection of malignant atrophic papulosis gastrointestinal complications: A case report and review of literature
Malignant Atrophic Papulosis
Our report contrasts the endoscopic and laparoscopic findings in malignant atrophic papulosis which suggest laparoscopy is the more powerful means of detecting gastrointestinal involvement. Imaging studies may serve as a key indicator of systemic progression. Based on our experience, laparoscopy should be performed when there is a high index of suspicion for gastrointestinal malignant atrophic papulosis, even if endoscopic examination is non-diagnostic or normal.
