Thyroid Metastasis from Cardia Cancer

Thyroid Metastasis from Cardia Cancer

Objectives: The aim of the study was to present a case of gastric cardia cancer metastasis to thyroid gland.

Methods: this study includes a case report and review of the literature.

Results: The thyroid gland is an uncommon site of tumor metastasis but should always be suspected in any patients with a previous history of malignancy, mainly in kidney, breast and lung primary. To our knowledge, primary gastric cardia cancer with metastasis to the thyroid gland has only been reported in one case.

Conclusion: Metastases to the thyroid gland are rare but should always be suspected in any patient with a previous history of malignancy. Primary gastric cardia cancer is an extremely rare origin. Although detection of metastasis to the thyroid gland often indicates poor prognosis, surgical resection of an isolated metastasis can result in prolonged disease-free survival.
