Oxyntic gland polyp/adenoma is a recently reported rare neoplasm previously called gastric adenocarcinoma of fundic gland type (chief cell predominant type). We report a case of oxyntic gland adenoma curatively treated with endoscopic mucosal resection. On endoscopy, a small, round polypoid lesion was observed in the fundus of the stomach of a 33-year-old man. He underwent endoscopic mucosal resection with a cap for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, and was diagnosed as having oxyntic gland adenoma with high-grade dysplasia. On immunohistochemical analysis, the tumor was positive for MUC6 and negative for MUC5AC and MUC2. Our case suggests that endoscopic mucosal resection with immunohistochemical analysis might be useful for correctly diagnosing an uncertain lesion suspected as an oxyntic gland adenoma.
Key Words: Endoscopic mucosal resection; Oxyntic gland adenoma; Stomach
