Alpha-fetoprotein-producing poorly differentiated gastric adenocarcinoma: hepatoid carcinoma?



Alpha-fetoprotein-producing poorly differentiated gastric adenocarcinoma: hepatoid carcinoma?



Gastroenterologie Clinique et Biologique 28(1): 77-79



We report the case of a 42-Year-old man with a poorly differentiated gastric cancer revealed by a very high level of serum alpha-fetoprotein-protein, associated with liver metastasis, and treated by chemotherapy. We discuss the possible diagnosis of hepatoid carcinoma.
