Author information

Department of Medical Oncology, Gazi University Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.


We describe a rare case with metastatic involvement of the gastrointestinal tract (colonic metastasis) secondary to lung cancer. After diagnostic work-up, a left hemicolectomy was performed. Patient has been alive and healthy 9 months after operation. We report the first case with the longest survival period after the diagnosis of metastasis, although the symptomatic gastrointestinal metastases from lung cancer generally follow a poor prognosis because of their advanced state and multiplicity.
