[Intestinal metastasis of pulmonary cancers. Apropos of 2 cases].


We report 2 new cases of intestinal metastases from lung cancer. Such metastases are not exceptional, but their clinical manifestations are rare and their diagnosis during evaluation of lung cancer is difficult. This diagnosis could be suggested by the presence of iron deficiency anaemia or melena in a patient being investigated for lung cancer. Other metastases are often present, and the prognosis is fatal at short term.
