Inflammatory Gastric Polyp
Left: 69 year-old man with protracted nausea and vomiting. Endoscopy revealed small and large polyps which grossly appeared adenomatous, but which microscopically proved to be inflammatory pseudopolyps. These inflammatory lesions may be the source of bleeding from the stomach, but are not true polyps and do not have a potential for malignant transformation.
Right: Coincidental finding in the antrum of a 76 year-old woman with adenocarcinoma in the proximal stomach.
