View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Cancer developing from more than one origin is called multiple primary cancer (MPC) and is a rare situation.

We report a male case presenting to the Emergency Clinic with symptoms of ileus who was diagnosed with synchronous colon and breast cancer.

Synchronous colorectal cancer is recognized as an important clinical entity, its clinical and pathological properties as well as prognosis are still undetermined.

Mentions: A 57 year old male patient presented to the Emergency Clinic with abdominal pain, vomiting, constipation and lack of flatulence. Physical examination revealed distension and widespread tenderness of the abdomen. Rectal ampulla was empty. A palpable mass was detected in the right breast. Systemic examination yielded no other pathological findings. Of the laboratory results, the white blood cell count was 1500/mm3, urea 92 mg/dL, creatinine 1.15 mg/dL, alpha-fetoprotein 3.1, carcinoembrionic antigen (CEA) 1.28, CA 125 15.4, CA 15-3 12.2, CA 19-9 13.1. An abdomen plain X-ray showed multiple air-fluid levels (Fig. 1). A contrast-enhanced computed tomography (oral and IV contrast) of the abdomen revealed a sigmoid colon mass with proximal dilatation and air-fluid levels (Fig. 2)
