Synchronous multiple carcinoma with small intestine and pulmonary neuroendocrine involvement: A case report
In clinical work, neuroendocrine synchronous multiplicity carcinoma was relatively rare. Most were confirmed by the pathological diagnosis of a certain part of the body combined with the imaging of the whole body, while cases that had both pathological and immunohistochemistry diagnosis were few.Patient concerns:
A patient who presented with abdominal pain visited our hospital, and was diagnosed with lesions in both the small intestine and lung.Diagnoses:
Both were considered primary tumors by imaging, and diagnosed as neuroendocrine carcinomas by pathology.Interventions:
The intestinal lesion was surgically resected, and the lung tumor treated by chemoradiotherapy.Outcomes:
The survival time of this patient exceeded 24 months.Lessons:
The diagnosis relied on clinical, imaging, pathological, and immunohistochemical features, which confirmed a synchronous multiple carcinoma. Treatment was based on the pathological types. Through this case report, the clinical and pathological data of neuroendocrine synchronous multiplicity carcinoma could be enriched.
