We present a case
report of a 63-year-old male who underwent lung resections for metastases
originating from gastric cancer 18-year after total gastrectomy with
lymphadenectomy. The gastrectomy was performed in 1994; histological
examination of the original tumor revealed stage II poorly differentiated
adenocarcinoma [pT2 (MP), N0, M0]. Chest X-ray and computed tomography in 2012
showed a well-defined tumor, 9 mm in size, at the left S3 of the lung. Thoracoscopic partial resection was
performed. The tumor was diagnosed as poorly differentiated carcinoma, most
likely metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma. Although rarely performed, resection
of pulmonary metastases from carcinoma of the stomach was done to improve the patient’s
chances for long-term survival.
We present a case report of a 65-year-old woman who underwent resection of a chest wall tumor. In contrast with computed tomography, the tumor exhibited hypervascularity and was fed from the 9th intercostals artery. Histologically, the tumor was diagnosed as a cellular variant of solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura, with branching “staghorn” vessels and hypervascularity. The tumor thus resembled a chest wall hemangiopericytoma.
