[Surgical treatment for small bowel metastasis of pleomorphic carcinoma 6 months after pulmonary resection].
ABSTRACT The prognosis of patients with distant metastases of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma is poor. We report a case of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma patient who underwent surgical resection of small bowel metastasis. A 69-year-old man developed anemia secondary to melena 6 months after right upper lobectomy for pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma and small bowel metastasis was detected endoscopically. He underwent laparoscopic ileocecal resection and has survived for 2 years after lung cancer resection without any other recurrence or metastasis.
