Abstract

A 39-year-old woman presented with acute onset of arthralgia in both wrists. Although her primary gastric cancer was in remission after previous treatment, carcinomatous arthritis was suggested by the osteolytic radiographic findings and refractoriness to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which was then confirmed by synovial fluid cytopathology. In view of the high incidence of gastric cancer in Korea, gastric cancer involving the carpal bones should be considered when we encounter a patient presenting with inflammatory peripheral joint arthritis, which might be the first sign of recurrence.
