Abstract

We have recently encountered two patients with early gastric cancer in the remnant stomach which resulted from gastritis cystica polyposa at the anastomosis site. The remnant stomach, which had been reconstructed with the Billroth II method, contained an elevated sessile lesion at the anastomosis site. One patient was a 73-year-old woman who had undergone gastrectomy for a gastric ulcer at 30 years earlier, cancer type I + IIa of the remnant stomach was diagnosed, and total remnant gastrectomy was performed. The other patient was a 59-year-old man who had undergone gastrectomy for a duodenal ulcer at 31 years earlier, cancer type I + IIa of the remnant stomach was diagnosed, and subtotal remnant gastrectomy was performed. Histological examination in each case showed that moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma had developed from gastritis cystica polyposa. These results suggested that this cancer has a close relationship with gastritis cystica polyposa.
