Abstract

We report here gastric metastasis from lung carcinoma in an 80-year-old man. His chief complaint was epigastric pain from metastases in the stomach. Although metastasis from primary carcinoma of the lung to the small intestine is more common than has been previously suspected, symptoms are rare. Such a metastasis may present as bowel perforation. To find cases of lung carcinoma metastasis to the gastrointestinal tract is clinically rare, and there have been few reports in the English literature. This report describes the gastrointestinal metastasis from lung carcinoma.
