 In about 80 cases of fundic glandular polyps, we studied the characteristics of age, gender gap, presence of Helicobacter pylori infection, atrophy of gastric mucosa, favorite localization, number and form. The average age was 49.7 years old. The gender gap was not clear, but the ratio of females was increasing according to the numerical increase of the polyps. Fundic glandular polyps were present mainly in the body of the stomach. As for the endoscopic findings, the polyps had smooth surfaces and similar color to the neighboring gastric mucosa. The form and size presented Yamada II type approximately 5 mm in size. The rate of infection of Helicobacter pylori was 3.75 %, and 95.0 % of the subjects did not show atrophy of the gastric mucosa. Verification of these characteristics was very likely to lead to a diagnosis of fundic glandular polyps. For the diagnosis of fundic glandular polyps, detailed endoscopic observation of the gastric mucosa is very important.
