BACKGROUND
De novo gastric cancer is a rare complication of liver transplantation.

METHODS
Surgical treatments of 16 cases with different outcomes were reported in the English literature.

RESULTS
De novo gastric cancer (stage II) was diagnosed as the result of epi-gastric discomfort in a recipient 10 years after liver transplantation. The patient received chemotherapy alone and remained well for 26 months.
