The same comments can be applied to oesophageal cancer: it is only recently that the potential prognostic importance of pleural and peritoneal involvement has been recognised. There has been a longer, and clearer, understanding of the importance of transcoelomic peritoneal spread in gastric cancer. In the small intestine, adenocarcinoma is a rare tumour and we have very little information on any important prognostic parameters, including serosal involvement. Appendiceal mucinous tumours show a particular propensity to such spread and the understanding and pathological assessment of such tumours have undergone radical changes in recent years.
Unsurprisingly, serosal involvement is more likely with diffuse tumours than with intestinal type, not least because the former are more likely to be associated with advanced stage . Unlike with GI cancers at other sites, the stomach is the one organ where involvement of the peritoneum on a flat surface is more likely to be seen (Fig. 5). We believe that this is unlikely to reflect any differences in the micro-anatomy of the serosa of the stomach, compared to, say, the oesophagus and the colorectum, and it is more likely to be a manifestation of the biology of the tumour cells, with individual tumour cells, in the diffuse variety of gastric cancer, seemingly having more capability of transgressing the serosal surface and causing transcoelomic disease, and the fact that the stomach is liberally invested with a flat serosal surface.
