Calcified untreated gastric cancer

      Abstract

      Adenocarcinoma of the stomach represents upwards of 95% of all gastric malignancy. Calcifications in untreated gastric cancer are rare, but typically represent mucin-producing tumor. We report the radiology and pathology of a patient who presented with gastric wall calcifications on CT and a mucin-producing adenocarcinoma at pathologic examination of a gastric biopsy specimen.
