The patient is a 67-year-old male who consulted for a 3-cm subcutaneous epigastric tumor. As it was believed to be a soft tissue tumor, a biopsy was taken under local anesthesia (Fig. 1). The result showed a metastatic adenocarcinoma of gastric-biliary-pancreatic origin (non-encapsulated proliferation of pleomorphic epithelial cells forming rows). The CT extension study identified a gastric tumor. Gastroscopy and PET (Fig. 2) confirmed an infiltrating gastric adenocarcinoma with a diffuse pattern originating from a single initial metastasis. After initial CTx treatment, total D2 gastrectomy and metastasectomy were performed out of protocol: ypT3N2(3/17)M1. Currently the patient has survived >2 years since diagnosis.
