Abstract

We experienced a case of advanced gastric cancer with tumor thrombi extending into left gastric vein and portal vein. CT demonstrates the tumor thrombi that show nodular and tubular structures along the left gastric artery continuous to the portal vein. On preoperative CT evaluation of gastric cancer, further attention should be paid to differentiate portal venous thrombi from lymph nodal metastases.
