Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Colorectal carcinomas are frequent and their diagnosis and treatment is generally considered a routine task in oncology, but in some cases, using a routine approach may cause unforeseeable difficulties. CASE REPORT: A 72-year-old woman underwent segmental bowel resection of a tumour diagnosed as colon cancer 15 months earlier. The tumour also metastasized in the lungs. Autopsy findings raised a high level of suspicion that her colon tumour was a metastasis from a uterine cervical adenocarcinoma undiscovered before the post mortem examination. CONCLUSION: Occasionally metastases do not arise from the tumour that we are aware of, and metastases may mimic primary tumours. Although the papillary structure of a colon cancer should raise the possibility of a metastatic nature, also primary - at least partially - papillary carcinomas may arise in the large intestines.
