  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A proposal to reconsider views on polypoid lesion of the stomach was made by us in 1965 of which originated from a confusion in the definition of the so-called polyps of the stomach both clinical and pathological.

 Thus polypoid lesion of the stomach was categorized into four types according to the appearance of the originating area. (Fig. 1) Its grouping according to size and shape is very helpful in differential diagnosis of benign and malignant polypoid lesion of the stomach even today. (Fig. 3, 4)  Moreover, the condition at the surface, that is, the degree of elevation and depression, may become one criterion in judging it as benign or malignant. Therefore, it is very important to thoroughly depict the appearance of the lesion by x-ray and endoscopy when making its diagnosis.
