Özet

The risk of malignancy in transplant patients is higher than in the general population. The risk is increased mostly due to immune alteration and viral infections. While the most common cancers following liver transplantation include skin cancers, lymphoma and Kaposi's sarcoma, gastric cancer is uncommon. Herein, we report a case of gastric adenocarcinoma developing three years after cadaveric liver transplantation in a patient with autoimmune hepatitis. The patient was successfully operated. The patient did not receive any adjuvant therapy, and is free of disease at 9 months' follow-up.
