Abstract

We report a rare case of the development of gastric perforation at the site of metastasis from adenocarcinoma of the lung during systemic chemotherapy. We speculated that the chemotherapy-induced necrosis of the metastatic tumor might have led to the gastric perforation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of chemotherapy-induced gastric perforation as a complication of lung cancer treatment.
