Abstract

The Authors describe a case of gastric metastases from breast cancer. The staging procedures in breast cancer do not usually include the endoscopic examination of the gastroenteric tract; nevertheless the complaint of persistent gastric disorders in patients affected by metastatic breast cancers must not be underestimated. In this case the finding of gastric neoplastic involvement led to effective treatment of the above mentioned disorders and consequently to an improvement in the patient's quality of life. Moreover, the evaluation of this clinical case shows that chemotherapeutic treatment of this metastatic localisation does not differ from that of metastases in other sites.
