Author information

Dept. of Int. Med., Kouseiren Bisai Hospital.


A 65-year-old female with a history of cancer of the uterine body and a strong family history of cancer, was admitted with abdominal pain and anemia. During roentgenographic examination of the small intestine, a tumor was recognized about 25 cm from the ileocecal valve, leading us to suspect a carcinoma of the ileum. A colonoscopy demonstrated a constricting, ulcerated lesion, with a round wall: and a subsequent biopsy proved that the patient had a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma. At surgery, a tumor, measuring 52 x 50 mm, was found to have infiltrated the serosa with a metastasis to the mesenteric lymph node.
