A patient with gastric ulceration and hemorrhage due to multiple antral gastric submucosal lipomas is presented.

The number and close apposition of the lipomas resulted in loss of the usual gastroscopic and radiologic findings associated with these benign tumors. Complications arising from both singly occurring and multiple gastric lipomas are discussed.
