Abstract

Diffuse calcifications in primary gastric cancer are very rare, most of them being found in mucinous adenocarcinoma. We present the CT aspects of a locally advanced gastric cancer, which showed partial response to neo-adjuvant chemotherapy. The pathological features of the surgical specimen after total gastrectomy are also reported and the pathogenesis of the calcifications is discussed.
