OYARZABAL PEREZ, I et al. Fibrosis retroperitoneal secondary to gastric neoplasia. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.3, pp.345-347. ISSN 0210-4806.

The retroperitoneal fibrosis is a very little frequent pathology that habitually includes the abdominal aorta and ureters. Two thirds of cases the etiology is idiopathic and in a third it is secondary to other causes as drugs, generalized infections or diseases and tumors which are considered to be responsible from 8 to 10%. The most frequent is colorectal adenocarcinoma, being anecdotal the gastric location with six described cases to date. We present a case of a patient with gastric cancer and secondary retroperitoneal fibrosis of difficult diagnosis and handling.
