Abstract

We report two cases of an isolated splenic metastasis, occurring 5 and 3 years, respectively, after gastrectomy for gastric carcinoma. Serum carcinoembryonic antigen and CA 19-9 levels were evaluated preoperatively, postoperatively, and during the oncologic follow-up. The patients underwent splenectomy for solitary splenic metastasis. We conclude that the use of serum carcinoembryonic and CA 19-9 values may help in the early diagnosis of these recurrences and splenectomy allows radical treatment in patients with no evidence of disseminated disease.
