MULTIPLE ADENOMATOUS POLYPS OF THE STOMACH, 119

 119                  MULTIPLE ADENOMATOUS POLYPS OF THE STOMACH

The patient was a man aged 69 who died in 1931 of congestive cardiac failure.  The old notes do not mention any gastric symptoms.

 

The specimen consists of the stomach mounted with the pylorus at the top, and opened to show 3 large and one smaller peduncular adenomatous polyps springing from the mucosa of the central zone of the stomach on the greater curvature and the posterior wall.  Each polyp consists of many elongated club-like fronds.  The two upper tumours and the small nodular polyp in the centre of the group have broad sessile bases, but the more distal polyp has a narrower pedicle.
