Park SW, Cho HJ, Choo WS, Chung KS, Kim HY, Yoo JY, Kim JS, Shin HS - Korean J. Intern. Med. (1991)

Bottom Line: Although intestinal metastases from lung cancer are not rare at postmortem studies, the development of clinically significant symptoms from the gastrointestinal metastases is very unusual.We report a case of small intestinal hemorrhage leading to intestinal perforation secondary to metastases from a large cell carcinoma of the lung in a 31-year-old man along with a review of the literature.

ABSTRACT
Although intestinal metastases from lung cancer are not rare at postmortem studies, the development of clinically significant symptoms from the gastrointestinal metastases is very unusual. We report a case of small intestinal hemorrhage leading to intestinal perforation secondary to metastases from a large cell carcinoma of the lung in a 31-year-old man along with a review of the literature.

f3-kjim-6-2-79-5: The polypoid tumor of the intestine is composed of large round cells without pigment. The cells are relatively uniform in size.(H&E, ×100)

Mentions: Mlicroscopically, numerous hemosiderin pigments were scattered throughout the fields. The cells in the polypoid mass lesion were consistent with large round cells of undetermined origin. Each cell had a round nucleus containing prominent nucleoli. The cytoplasm was homogenous and clear (Fig. 3). The immunohistochemical study for S-100 protein was negative. Electron microscopically, obvious desmosomes were identified as convincing evidence of carcinoma (Fig. 4). Bronchoscopic examination, which was done on the 10th postoperative day, revealed an obstructing round mass at the entrance of the right main bronchus (Fig. 5). Histologically, this lesion was diagnosed as large cell carcinoma of the lung (Fig. 6).
