Abstract


The breast cancer-derived metastatic gastrointestinal diseases are not common and gastric metastases are very rare. Clinical
presentation of linitis plastica caused by metastatic breast cancer is similar to that caused by primary gastric cancer but their
treatments differ dramatically. Patients with breast cancer who apply with progressive upper gastrointestinal complaints must
undergo a full physical examination, radiological and endoscopic evaluation by a clinician.
