Metastatic disease to the small bowel is a rare entity that is most famously associated with melanoma, although a wide variety of other cancers have been reported to cause this pattern of disease including lung, breast and soft tissue and bone sarcomas. While small bowel metastases may portend a dismal prognosis in many oncology patients, it is most important to identify such lesions in the acute setting given the broad spectrum of complications that may be associated. Reported complications from small bowel metastatic disease include obstruction, intussusception, gastrointestinal bleeding, and even frank perforation.
This article describes an unusual case of liposarcoma metastatic to the small bowel in which the tumor deposits manifested as rapidly appearing and growing fat-density intraluminal masses that were identified on contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT).
