Multiple primary carcinomas of the small intestine: A review of the literature
- 14 Downloads
A survey of the available literature revealed an extremely low incidence of multiple primary carcinomata of the small intestine.
Six cases of multiple primary carcinoma were found in which the growths were limited to the small bowel.
Nine other recorded cases were found in which there were multiple carcinomata in which one growth involved the small bowel, the second growth involved other organs of the gastrointestinal tract.
A comment on the etiologic factors rendering the small intestinal segment unfavorable for the development of carcinoma is discussed.
