Majority of metastatic stomach tumor is direct invasion from adjacent malignant lesions such as pancreatic carcinoma, hepatoma, colonic carcinoma which invade the stomach via gastrocolic ligament. Otherwise, metastatic involvement of the stomach as a result of solid tumors of extra-gastrointestinal origin is a rare occurrence, in about 0.2% to 1.7% of patients dying of solid tumors. The tumors which were most commonly reported hematogenous metastatic malignancy of the stomach are melanoma, lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma. We have experienced an unusual case in which a metastatic gastric germ cell tumor presented as an upper gastrointestinal bleeding in a 29-year-old man. He was hospitalized with complaints of melena and severe anemic appearance. We performed gastroscopy which revealed an fungating mass covered with dark pigmentation at the anterior wall of lower body of the stomach. Pathologic findings of the biopsy showed a metastatic mixed germ cell tumor of the stomach. We report this unusual metastatic mixed germ cell tumor of the stomach with a review of literatures.
