Liposarcoma metastases to the small bowel presenting as fat-density intraluminal lesions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Metastatic disease to the small bowel is rare; however, it is important to recognize that when it does occurs a variety of complications are possible including obstruction, gastrointestinal bleeding, intussusception, and bowel perforation. We present here an unusual case of small bowel metastases in a patient with known metastatic liposarcoma in which the lesions manifested as rapidly evolving fat-density masses that necessitated segmental small bowel resection. Careful scrutiny of the small bowel in oncology patients is necessary to guide appropriate treatment and avoid potential catastrophic complications from small bowel metastases.
