Abstract

Hepatoid adenocarcinoma (HAC) is defined as an extrahepatic tumor with hepatocyte differentiation. Hepatoid adenocarcinoma of the stomach (HAS) is a rare type of gastric cancer characterized by unique clinico-pathological features and a poor prognosis. We report a case of a metastatic HAS with a review of the literature.
