 A 66-year-old man had been followed up because of a recurrent duodenal ulcer, since 1983. In May, 1994 we detected, by upper gastrointestinal endoscopic examination, an elevated lesion resembling a submucosal tumor accompanied by fusion of the folds nearby in the greater curvature of the lower gastric body. In 1997, these findings were almost the same as those of the previous examination. In 1999, the findings revealed a IIa+IIc-like lesion with an irregular groove on its top. However, the biopsy specimens could not detect any malignancy. Endoscopic mucosal resection was performed in order to enable a diagnosis. Eventually a submucosal gastric cancer arising from ectopic gastric mucosa glands was diagnosed.
