Three patients with radiographically demonstrated "bulls eye" or "target" lesions of the stomach were found to have gastric metastases from carcinoma of the lung. In two of the three patients, upper gastrointestinal radiography was performed because of gastrointestinal bleeding. Awareness of this association may facilitate earlier recognition of the primary site or earlier recognition of metastatic disease in similar cases. The radiographic appearance of the lesions in these patients is presented, along with a discussion of the pathogenesis of these lesions.

    Although metastases from primary carcinoma of the lung to the small intestine appear to be more common than previously suspected, they rarely produce symptoms. Such metastases may present as bowel perforations. Overt gastrointestinal bleeding has been described only as a prelude to perforation....

We succeeded in detecting SNs of clinically early gastric cancers by intraoperative injection of a...

    Purpose The pattern of double primary cancers after treatment for gastric cancer is important for a patient's survival. Materials and Methods We analyzed the clinicopathologic data of 214 gastric cancer patients from October 1996 to November 2007 with regard to metachronous second primary...

    A patient with previous resection of primary hepatocellular carcinoma developed upper intestinal bleeding. Pinch biopsy and needle aspiration biopsy of a submucosal antral lesion seen at endoscopy yielded metastatic hepatoma. We believe this to be the first report of the endoscopic appearance of...
