ABSTRACT: The mucosal metastasis of adenocarcinomas located in colonic mucosa is not infrequent. We present a clinical report of a patient diagnosed with a gastric multifocal signet ring cell adenocarcinoma without any evidence of visceral dissemination with the exception of mucosal infiltration of signet ring cell adenocarcinoma in a colonic polyp and in the mucosa of previous colonic anastomosis. The histopathological study of suspect lesions in the colonic mucosa is necessary to correctly approach the treatment of these patients.
