Abstract

This report describes the case of a 74-year-old female, who had been admitted to hospital because of epigastralgia and appetite loss. An ultrasonogram and a CT scan of the abdomen revealed a remarkable lymph node metastasis. Through an upper gastrointestinal tract (UGI) X-ray, a Borrmann III type gastric carcinoma was detected. Under endoscopic guidance, a gastric and a lymph node specimen were taken and biopsied, revealing a keratinous, well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma and a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, leading to a diagnosis of a primary gastric adenosquamous carcinoma with a remarkable lymphnode metastasis. After chemotherapy, a CT scan, a UGI X-ray, and an endoscopic examination revealed distinct tumor reduction.
