Abstract

There are two forms of Menetrier's disease. The common form involves thickened gastric rugae, while the rare form involves discrete gastric polyps. The clinical literature suggests an association between Menetrier's disease and acromegaly, as well as other neuroendocrine neoplasms; the radiological literature has not addressed the issue. We describe a patient with acromegaly who developed the rare polypoidal form of Menetrier's disease.
