Abstract

The most common sites of metastases with gastric cancer includes liver, peritoneal surfaces, and distant lymph nodes. Less commonly, ovaries, central nervous system, bone, pulmonary, or soft tissue metastases occur. However colonic metastases from gastric cancer are rare. · We report a patient with a signet ring cell carcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction metastasizing to the colon 3 years after surgical resection and adjuvant chemotherapy for her stage II disease. · Gastric cancer can affect many types of tissues and organs, however, colonic involvement is rare. It is important to bear in mind that gastric cancer, especially poorly differentiated or signet ring cell type has propensity for rare colonic recurrence.
