Gastric Metastases 14 Years After the Treatment of Breast Cancer
Asian Oncology Research Journal,
Aims: Gastric metastases are a rare event in the natural history of breast cancer.
Report of the Case: We report the case of a gastric metastasis occurred 14 years after initial treatment for breast carcinoma.
Discussion: Gastric metastases don’t exceed 0,3% of all metastases. Diagnosis is based on pathological examination of biopsies or surgical specimens. It is difficult to prove their primitive or secondary origin. Treatment consists on chemotherapy and or hormonal therapy.
Conclusion: The prognosis is similar to those with metastatic disease.
