Abstract

Gastric mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma, a rare malignant type of stomach tumor, is composed of components of adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine tumor. This type of neoplasm usually has a poor prognosis since both components are malignant. A 65‑year‑old male presented with norexia, epigastric distention, abdominal and lumbar pain. Contrast computed tomography scan of the abdomen verified multiple lesions merged into a large mass. Histolopathological examination of the specimen from digestive endoscopy was verified to be gastric mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma. The patient received a multimodality treatment of chemotherapy, surgical resection with radiotherapy and still remains alive with no evidence of metastasis or recurrence for over 5 years. The authors suggest that multimodality therapy may be beneficial and necessary to effictively treat mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma.
