Abstract

The pancreas is a rare site of metastasis from small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). We present the case of a pancreatic metastasis of small-cell lung, cancer associated with jaundice, in which, initially, the case was evaluated as a primary pancreatic carcinoma and pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed. We also review the reported cases of pancreatic metastases from SCLC.
