Extrahepatic biliary obstruction due to a solitary pancreatic metastasis of squamous cell lung carcinoma. Case report.

Abstract

A 53-year old male, with a history of squamous cell lung carcinoma, was presenting with jaundice. Examinations showed a pancreatic tumor infiltrating the common bile duct and a percutaneous biopsy proved that the lesion was metastatic from the lung carcinoma. The decision was taken to perform a laparotomy. During laparotomy, a palliative operation was performed to relieve the jaundice. According to the literature, symptomatic metastatic lesions of the pancreas from squamous cell carcinoma of the lung are infrequent.
