Pathological features and mucin histochemistry of primary gastric stump carcinoma associated with gastritis cystica polyposa. A study of six cases.


Six unusual cases of primary gastric stump carcinoma associated with gastritis cystica polyposa and arising in old gastrojejunostomy stomas are presented. The clinical data, the gross and microscopic pathological features, and the histochemical mucin profile of these two lesions are described in detail. A review is undertaken of the most relevant and previously published reports concerning, separately, either primary gastric stump carcinoma or gastritis cystica polyposa. The findings available in these reports are compared with those observed in our six cases. Some aspects of gastritis cystica polyposa are not unlike those seen in the solitary ulcer syndrome of the rectum and Ménétrier's disease. The histological type and mucin profile of primary gastric stump carcinoma parallel those recorded in gastric cancer arising in the unoperated stomach. However, the role of intestinal metaplasia and its histochemical typing appear somewhat different in primary gastric stump carcinoma.
