Sporadic diffuse gastric polyposis: Report of a case.
Summary of "Sporadic diffuse gastric polyposis: Report of a case."
A 50-year-old woman was admitted because of severe sideropenic anemia. The gastrin levels were within normal ranges. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed diffuse gastric polyposis with signs of diffuse oozing. Colonoscopy showed the presence of a 3-cm wide pedunculated polyp of the ascending colon, which was removed by diathermy. The patient was treated by total gastrectomy with Roux-Y esophagojejunostomy. Histological examination showed the presence of diffuse gastric polyposis with the contemporary occurrence of hyperplastic polyps and mixed hyperplastic and adenomatous polyps, with a tubular pattern and the focal aspect of serrate adenoma. This is the first case report of sporadic diffuse hyperplastic and adenomatous polyposis of the stomach.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with familial adenomatous polyposis (ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS COLI) and GARDNER SYNDROME, as well as some sporadic colorectal cancers.
Adenomatous Polyposis Coli Protein
A negative regulator of beta-catenin signaling which is mutant in ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS COLI and GARDNER SYNDROME.
Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
A variant of ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS COLI caused by mutation in the APC gene (GENES, APC) on CHROMOSOME 5. It is characterized by not only the presence of multiple colonic polyposis but also extracolonic ADENOMATOUS POLYPS in the UPPER GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT; the EYE; the SKIN; the SKULL; and the FACIAL BONES; as well as malignancy in organs other than the GI tract.
Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
