ABSTRACT
Liver penetration is one of the most serious complications of peptic ulcer diseases but is rarely encountered. A 57-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for further evaluation of a gastric malignancy. One month before admission, he was diagnosed with an adenocarcinoma by endoscopic biopsy at other hospital. A subtotal gastrectomy was performed to confirm malignancy and relieve the epigastric pain. Histologically, single glands were located between the ulcer base and attached liver tissue and stained positively for cytokeratin 19. The pathologic diagnosis was a gastric ulcer and bile ductular proliferation in the liver and gastric wall. Here, this report is the first Korean case of liver penetration of a gastric ulcer.
Key Words: Stomach ulcer; Penetration; Liver
