  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 The following is a summary of the x-ray and endoscopic findings of the stomach of a 52 year-old man with epigastric pain :

 1. Multiple masses were found on the greater curvature of the gastric body and fornix. Almost all of the masses were occupied by deep irregular depressions with smooth elevated margin and were sharply circumscribed. In a few of them, however, saucer-like appearance was revealed.

 2. Each lesion exists independently. Thus the origin of malignant lymphoma may be multicentric in this case.

 3. Peptic ulcerations with converging folds were found among the lesions.

 This case was easily diagnosed as malignant lymphoma of the stomach from these results. The pathological diagnosis was reticulum cell sarcoma without lymph node metastasis and multiple benign ulcers. Histologically, tumor cells infiltrated to the subserosal layer of the stomach.
