The clinical significance of angiogenesis was investigated in Borrmann type IV gastric cancer. Tumors with high microvessel density (MVD) often metastasized to the liver and lymph nodes. A significant correlation was recognized between macrophage infiltration and MVD. However, MVD was not a prognostic factor. Peritoneal dissemination was a prognostic factor in Borrmann type IV gastric cancer. Thus, angiogenesis plays an important role in the metastasis, but not prognosis in Borrmann type IV gastric cancer.
