A rare case of gastrojejunul fistula secondary to gastric cancer is presented. Fluoroscopic examination visualized the passage of contrast medium from the stomach to the small intestine. Gastric fiberscopy revealed cancer on the greater curvature of the corpus perforating into the jejunum. The scope could be inserted readily into jejunum through this perforation. Laparotomy showed that the cancer infiltrated and perforated from the stomach to the jejunum at about 10 cm. from the ligament of Treitz. Distal gastrectomy and resection of 10 cm. of the perforated jejunum were performed. The resected specimen revealed a Borrmann III gastric cancer of the greater curvature perforating the jejunum.
