Gastric diverticula are relatively rare findings. Although usually asymptomatic, they may cause vague epigastric pain. These lesions may be confused radiologically for gastric ulcers or cancers. Endoscopically, they may be confused for paraesophageal hernias. This report discusses the appearance and evaluation of gastric diverticula.
