Fig. 1.
Initial abdominal CT finding. The bilateral masses (right ovary, 22.3×21.4×16.9 cm; left ovary, 6.2×6.2×5.5 cm) and large amount of ascites suggested advanced ovary cancer.
Fig. 2.
Esophagogastroduodenoscopic finding. A 1.8 cm depressed lesion with mucosal convergence is seen in the great curvature side of the midbody.
Fig. 3.
Colonoscopic finding. Raised erosion (0.5 cm) is revealed in the mid descending colon.
Fig. 4.
Microscopic finding of colonic lesion. Poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with signet ring cell component is seen (H&E, ×200).
Fig. 5.
Another case of colonic metastasis of gastric adenocarcinoma. (A) Segmental wall thickening at the mid transverse colon was observed at abdominal CT (arrow). (B) Metastatic colon cancer from gastric adenocarcinoma shows typical linea platisca pattern at mid transverse colon.
