Giant gastric hyperplastic polyp: not always a benign lesion.

Abstract

Giant gastric hyperplastic polyps constitute of around 76% of all gastric polyps found. They are often found incidentally on upper GI endoscopy. They often present with occult GI bleeding causing iron deficiency anemia or partial gastric outlet obstruction. Although mostly benign, they do have potential for malignant transformation and hence must be excised endoscopically or surgically, whichever may be feasible. We hereby present a couple of cases of gastric hyperplastic polyps in an attempt to add to the current literature on this rather rare entity.
