Özet

Gastric Hepatoid Carcinoma (GHC) is a rare type of gatric cancer with a tendency to have poor prognosis and metastasize to the liver. GHCs generally show histopathologically hepatocellular differentiation and secrete Alpha Fetoprotein (AFP). AFP production can occur in cancers originating from the embryologically similar liver, gastrointestinal tract and yolk sac and often metastasizes to the liver. Although GHC is aggressive, it may not always cause liver metastasis and may invade into the other abdominal organs by direct contact. In this article, we present a case of locally advanced GHC with high AFP levels.
