ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Linitis Plastica (gastric cancer)

History: This 26 y.o. man presents with a three week history of early satiety and postprandial nausea and vomiting.

Findings: Frontal fluoroscopic images from a solid column barium enema and subsequent upper GI study demontrate concentric annular long segment luminal narrowing of the gastric antrum which extends into the pyloric channel. Also, these images demonstrate a concentric annular long segment narrowing of the lumen of the transverse colon from gastrocolic extension. Axial CT images of the abdomen demonstrate gastric wall thickening and concentric narrowing of the gastric antrum and pylorus. Axial CT images also demonstrate long segment narrowing of the transverse colon. These findings are compatible with the patient"s history of gastric adenocarcinoma with spread via the gastrocolic ligament to the transverse colon.

Ddx: Malignant neoplasms Gastric adenocarcinoma Lymphoma (especially Hodgkin disease) Metastases (hematogenous - esp. breast) Granulomatous infiltration Crohn’s disease Sarcoidosis Syphilis Tuberculosis Histoplasmosis Actinomycosis Eosinophilic gastritis Vasculitis Corrosive agents Gastric irradiation Gastric freezing Iron intoxication Hepatic arterial infusion if chemotherapy Stenosing antral gastritis Amyloidosis

Contrast-enhanced axial CT image of the abdomen demonstrates concentric gastric wall thickening in the region of the gastric antrum.  This is proven gastric adenocarcinoma (linitis plastica pattern).  There is peritoneal fluid (*).  Also labeled: Ao - aorta; pancreas.
