The occurrence of a collision tumor in the stomach, consisting of adenocarcinoma and malignant lymphoma, is extremely rare. We report herein the case of a patient who had undergone a pancreatoduodenectomy for bile duct cancer 5 year earlier, in whom an ulcerating tumor of the remnant stomach developed and grew rapidly within 5 months. Surgical exploration revealed a tumor in the remnant stomach, multiple liver metastases, and multiple lymph node metastases. Total resection of the remnant stomach was performed, and pathological examination revealed a collision tumor consisting of adenocarcinoma and malignant lymphoma. The patient died of liver metastases and lymph node metastases 7 months after his second operation. The coexistence of both adenocarcinoma and malignant lymphoma of the remnant stomach and the etiology of this unusual combination, never previously reported, is discussed.
