Abstract
The occurrence of a collision tumor in the stomach, consisting of adenocarc inoma and malignant lymphoma, is extremely rare. We report herein the case of a patient who had undergone a pancreatoduodenectomy for bile duct cancer 5 year earlier, in whom an ulcerating tumor of the remnant stomach develop ed and grew rapidly within 5 months. Surgical exploration revealed a tumor in the remnant stomach, multiple liver metastases. and multiple lymph node metastases. Total resection of the remnant stomach was performed, and patho logical examination revealed a collision tumor consisting of adenocarcinoma and malignant lymphoma. The patient died of liver metastases and lymph nod e metastases 7 months after his second operation. The coexistence of both a denocarcinoma and malignant lymphoma of the remnant stomach and the etiolog y of this unusual combination. never previously reported, is discussed.
