Abstract
Gastric carcinoma in advanced stages can directly involve or extend in to adjacent viscera with or without lymph nodal or haematological spread and may be associated with peritoneal seeding or distant dissemination. Though portal vein thrombosis (PVT) secondary to benign causes is common yet it is uncommonly encountered with malignant tumors as well. Malignant PVT is common with hepatic and pancreatic cancer but rare with gastric carcinoma. We report one such case where PVT was due to direct luminal invasion by malignant gastric carcinoma.
