Not only is there controversy as to how to identify and classify serosal involvement in colonic cancer, there is also continuing debate concerning how common the phenomenon is and this will, of course, itself influence the prescient value of the parameter in the different major series. In our Gloucester, UK, series, only a very small proportion of cases (around 5%) represent Dukes stage A with cancer confined within the bowel wall and not fully penetrating the muscularis propia [6, 14]. On the other hand, LPI appears unusually common in the same series, with a rate of up to 57% [6, 7].

A comment is appropriate on the nature and likely site of serosal involvement in gastric cancer. Unsurprisingly, serosal involvement is more likely with diffuse tumours than with intestinal type, not least because the former are more likely to be associated with advanced stage [14]. Unlike with GI cancers at other sites, the stomach is the one organ where involvement of the peritoneum on a flat surface is more likely to be seen (Fig. 5). We believe that this is unlikely to reflect any differences in the micro-anatomy of the serosa of the stomach, compared to, say, the oesophagus and the colorectum, and it is more likely to be a manifestation of the biology of the tumour cells, with individual tumour cells, in the diffuse variety of gastric cancer, seemingly having more capability of transgressing the serosal surface and causing transcoelomic disease, and the fact that the stomach is liberally invested with a flat serosal surface.
