 Two hundred and seventy-seven cases of minute gastric cancer which was defined by the size,5 mm or less in diameter, were examined with respect to indices leading to its detection clinically or radiologically.

 The results were as follows.

1) Only 9.4% (26 lesions) of minute gastric cancer were found clinically. On the other hand, most of the cases were diagnosed by histological examination of whole section.

2) Although macroscopic and clinical diagnosis of minute gastric cancer depended on the size of lesion and the morphology in cross section, detecting the lesion smaller than 3 mm (especially 1~2 mm) was difficult irrespective of the morphology.

3) In order to find minute gastric cancer, small niche, radiolucency, and rough area gastricae should not be overlooked by closely observing under fluoroscopy and radiograms. Lateral views, in particular, should be carefully examined to detect lesions of the greater or lesser curvature.
