Early gastric carcinoma with oncocytic features and extensive metastases (Journal article)

Batistatou, A./ Doukas, M./ Baltogiannis, G./ Panelos, J./ Kamina, S./ Charalabopoulos, K./ Agnantis, N. J.

We present the case of a 63-year-old Caucasian woman with early gastric adenocarcinoma, suffering from extensive metastases at the time of initial presentation. Microscopic examination of the gastrectomy specimen revealed an invasive adenocarcinoma with oncocytic features. Interestingly, despite the fact that the carcinoma was pT1, it also was found to be N2, stage IV. The biologic behavior of oncocytic adenocarcinoma of the stomach is still unclear. We would like to present this case, so that its clinicopathological characteristics can be added to the few cases already published.
