Two patients with metastatic carcinoma of the colon are presented. Before operation, both patients had values for the concentration of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in the plasma of 5.0 μg/l or less, but in one patient these values increased after surgical resection of the primary tumor, and in the other they did not. The utility of measuring CEA in patients with colorectal carcinoma is discussed.
