Alpha fetoprotein producing gastric hepatoid adenocarcinoma



Jpma. Journal of the Pakistan Medical Association 56(6): 292-294



Gastric carcinoma generally as presents adenocarcinoma and rarely shows a hepatoid pattern, it may or not produce alpha-fetoprotein. The interpretation of the lesion may be difficult in a patient with a hepatic mass and raised alpha-fetoprotein level.
