Blood-borne metastatic cancer of the stomach is a rare occurrence according to a number of reports in the literature. Morever, it is extremely rare that gastric metastasis is man- ifested during life and most metastatic gastric tumors have been found at autopsy. The tumors most commonly reported to metastasize to the stomach include melanoma, breast carcinoma, and lung carcinoma. The frequency of metastatic gastric cancer from small cell lung cancer is 0.2-0.5% in the world literature. In Korea, there has been only one case reported on metastatic gastric cancer from small cell lung cancer. A 53-year-old man who had primary small cell lung carcinoma with brain metastasis complained of nausea, vomiting, and poor oral intake, An esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed two submucosal tumors in the fundus and the mid body of the stomch. Pathologic examination revealed submucosal infiltration of small cell carcinoma. We report a case of metastatic gastric cancer, from small cell lung cancer that could be diaignosed during the subjectis followed by review of the life, literature.
