Case Report

Summary

Adenosquamous carcinomas of the intestine are rare tumours, especially those occuring in the small bowel. We report the first case of a metastasizing adenosquamous carcinoma of the ileum in a 74 year old male. The tumour mainly consisted of squamous cells, many of which reacted with antikeratin antibody. A review of the pertinent literature is given.

Key words
