 A 71-year-old woman visited our hospital complaining of unpleasantness in the epigastrium. Endoscopic examination revealed an irregular whitish mucosal lesion in the lesser curvature of the gastric body. The lesion was partly connected to the esophageal mucosa and had a diameter of approximately 5 cm. The result of the histological examination from the biopsy specimens of the lesion was squamous epithelium. We report a case of squamous metaplasia of the stomach.
