During the life cycle of early gastric cancer, some malignant ulcers may undergo partial or complete mucosal repair. Endoscopic visualization alone cannot reliably discriminate benign from malignant gastric ulcers. A 45-year-old man visited our hospital complaining of hematemesis. Endoscopy revealed a 2x2 cm sized, deep ulcer with adherent clots at the posterior wall of the gastric body. Proton pump inhibitor was prescribed for 2 months. Diagnostic endoscopic mucosal resection was performed. Histology revealed an early gastric cancer involving the lamina propria which was resected completely.
Key Words: Early gastric cancer; Endoscopic mucosal resection; Ulcer bleeding
