  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Radiologic and endoscopic examination of a 55 year-old woman complaining of epigastralgia led to a diagnosis of gastric cancer of Borrmann type 4. Preoperative laboratory studies showed no abnomalities but anemia.Total gastrectolny with distal pancreaticosplenectomy was performed.The pathology report suspected that this was a case of gastric plasmacytoma. The tumor cells were shown, by the immunoperoxidase technique, to contain IgG and kappa type light chain.

 Eight of 18 cases with gastric plasmacytoma collected in Japanese literature on the subject showed a rise of immunoglobulin level or M-protein in sera of patients with progression of the disease. This fact indicates that the serum immunoglobulin and/or Mprotein may be a marker of this disease.
