Abstract

Heterotopic gastric mucosa of peculiar shape and located in the duodenum bore a close resemblance to superficial ulcerating cancer. Radiographic survey showed a flexible lesion with a mucosal pattern resembling area gastrica. Endoscopy revealed its color to be indistinguishable from that of the normal duodenal mucosa. These may be characteristic features of this abnormality.
