Case Report

Linitis plastica of the colon due to metastases of invasive lobular breast carcinoma

326-328

David Viso Vidal, Rafael Villanueva Pavón, Francisco Jorquera Plaza,

Colon metastases from breast carcinoma are relatively rare and the invasive lobular subtype tends to metastasize more frequently due to its peritoneal dissemination. A 67-year-old female with a lobular subtype breast neoplasm was treated via a surgical resection ten years previously, with subsequent radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy. She is currently in clinical remission. A colonoscopy was performed due to a recent onset cachexia syndrome, which identified diffuse linitis plastica of the colon. Biopsies confirmed that it was secondary to infiltration by cancer cells of invasive lobular breast carcinoma (ILBC). In conclusion, linitis plastica of the colon may be a new presentation of colon metastases from ILBC.
