[Hepatoid adenocarcinoma of the stomach. A case report].
Ann Chir. 2006 Mar; 131(3):213-5.AC

Abstract

Hepatoid adenocarcinoma of the stomach is a very rare tumor with a poor prognosis. Lymph nodes involvement and/or liver metastases are frequently observed. Diagnosis should be pointed out if elevated serum level of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) is detected with gastric tumor. Histologically, the tumor is an adenocarcinoma of intestinal type including foci of hepatoïd differenciation. Immunohistochemistry is positive for alpha-1-antitrypsin and alpha-1-antichymotripsin, and for AFP. We report a case of a 66 year-old man presenting an advanced stage of hepatoid adenocarcinoma of the stomach, treated by gastrectomy followed by chemotherapy. The patient died four months after the surgery because of progressing liver metastatic disease.
