Colonic metastasis from lung cancer: a curatively treated case report and review of the literature

Year 2021, Volume 3, Issue 1, 36 - 44, 28.02.2021

Abstract

Lung cancer is the most frequent cause of cancer death in the world. Lung cancer tends to metastasize, but gastrointestinal metastasis is very rare. A 52-year old female patient; previously operated on for lung epidermoid carcinoma; admitted with anemia. A mass in the sigmoid colon was found by colonoscopy. We performed a laparoscopic resection of the sigmoid colon. The report of surgical specimen was epidermoid carcinoma. And then, the patient completed the chemotherapy. The patient is stil alive 115 months after the diagnosis of metastatic colonic epidermoid carcinoma. To our knowledge, the case we reported is the first case to cure. It is necessary to be aware that primary epidermoid carcinoma of the lung may cause gastrointestinal tract metastasis. Gastrointestinal metastasis of lung cancer, is seen in the final stages of the disease, and the prognosis is poor, however, with close follow-up, early diagnosis and surgical intervention, the survey may be extended, in our patient, as.
