Increased alpha-fetoprotein concentration in association with ileal adenocarcinoma complicating Crohn's disease.

    Abstract

    A considerably raised serum alpha-fetoprotein concentration was found in a patient with an ileal adenocarcinoma. alpha-fetoprotein was shown in both the primary tumour and the hepatic metastases by an immunoperoxidase technique. A raised alpha-fetoprotein concentration in association with ileal adenocarcinoma has not been described previously, and it is notable that the first such case should occur as a complication of longstanding Crohn's disease.
