 The Patient was in his fifties, and presented a tumor in the antrum of the stomach in a medical check up. He was followed-up at the hospital because the pathological diagnosis was gastritis. 6 years later, the patient was referred to our hospital because the tumor had enlarged. On endoscopy, a tumor, 8mm in size, was recognized at the greater curvature of the antrum. The surface of the tumor had no irregularity nor ulceration. Neoplastic change was not detected in the tumor. We failed to reach a diagnosis by endoscopic biopsy, so ESD(endoscopic submucosal dissection)was performed. The tumor was finally diagnosed as an inflammatory fibroid polyp by an ESD specimen. In this case, diagnosis was difficult because this tumor did not have the characteristics of a typical IFP.
