Figure 1 A case of ampullary adenoma that was indicated for endoscopic papillectomy. A: Duodenoscopy showed an ampullary tumor. The tumor was diagnosed as an adenoma based on an endoscopic biopsy. B: Endoscopic ultrasound did not show any bile/pancreatic duct invasion. CBD: Common bile duct; MPD: Main pancreatic duct.

Figure 2 Ampullary adenoma. A: Ampullary adenoma with vertical margin positive. Tumor is present at resected vertical margin. (black arrow). (left) hematoxylin and eosin, loupe image. (right) hematoxylin and eosin × 100. B: Ampullary adenoma with vertical margin uncertain. Tubular gland is present at resected vertical margin, but it cannot distinguish whether or not the tumor exists because of thermal denaturation (black arrow).
