We report two cases of a massive fundic gland polyposis associated with protracted proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy. Both patients were females aged 51. On repeated endoscopy, the number of fundic gland polyps was increasing steeply, and they resulted in a passage disorder. In the first case, the enormous number of polyps made endoscopic removal impossible, so the patient was treated by total gastrectomy. Although our case is the second one reported in the world, we would like to draw the attention to this rare complication of long lasting PPI therapy.
