Anterior maxillary metastasis of gastric adenocarcinoma: A rare case.

Umashankar D, Srinath N, Bavle RM, Bhandari A - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2013)

Bottom Line: Metastatic tumors of the oral cavity are rare, representing about 1% of oral tumors.Seventy percent of all tumors metastatic to the oral and maxillofacial region are adenocarcinomas, most commonly originating from the breast, kidney and lung.Carcinoma of stomach is generally described as one of the "captains of men of death".

ABSTRACT
Metastatic tumors of the oral cavity are rare, representing about 1% of oral tumors. Seventy percent of all tumors metastatic to the oral and maxillofacial region are adenocarcinomas, most commonly originating from the breast, kidney and lung. Carcinoma of stomach is generally described as one of the "captains of men of death". Usual sites of metastasis from gastric adenocarcinoma are direct invasion of adjacent organs, peritoneal dissemination, lymphatic metastasis and hematogenous spread. A primary carcinoma of the stomach may rarely metastasize to the oral cavity, it is important to bear this possibility in mind because such conditions may mimic a benign disease. This article describes a case of metastasis of gastric adenocarcinoma to the maxilla in a 50-year-old male.

Figure 4: Proliferative growth at cardia of stomach seen via upper gastric endoscopy

Mentions: Results of upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a proliferative growth at cardia extending into lesser curvature [Figure 4]; multiple biopsies were taken from the lesion. Biopsy report revealed fragments of gastric mucosa showing intestinal metaplasia. Few other segments showed tumor cells arranged in glands, sheets and papillary projections [Figure 5]. The cells were round to oval with hyperchomatic and vesiculated nuclei, multiple nucleoli, moderate amount of amphophilic cytoplasm and exhibited numerous mitotic figures [Figure 6] suggestive of moderately differentiated gastric adenocarcinoma.
