Gastric lipomas are uncommon lesions, usually single and located in the antrum. Common symptoms include upper digestive bleeding, anemia, and intestinal obstruction. Alternatively, they may remain asymptomatic, and detectable only at autopsy. A case of a 72-year-old man, who died of myocardial infarction, was found at autopsy to have multiple gastric lipomas of the corpus and antrum, with a single lesion measuring 10 x 6.5 x 3 cm.

Abstract

Gastric lipomas are uncommon lesions, usually single and located in the antrum. Common symptoms include upper digestive bleeding, anemia, and intestinal obstruction. Alternatively, they may remain asymptomatic, and detectable only at autopsy. A case of a 72-year-old man, who died of myocardial infarction, was found at autopsy to have multiple gastric lipomas of the corpus and antrum, with a single lesion measuring 10 x 6.5 x 3 cm.
