Abstract

Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC) is a rare dermatologic malignancy with propensity for metastasis to lymph nodes, skin, lung, liver, bone, and brain. Metastasis to the stomach is rare with only 13 reported cases. We discuss the outcomes of a partial gastrectomy for the treatment of symptomatic MCC with gastric metastasis.
