Leiomyosarcoma of the stomach with particular reference to the gastroscopic picture
- 15 Downloads
As a result of serial examinations of two patients with leiomyosarcoma of the stomach, it is felt that the gastroscopic picture at times may be distinctive enough to warrant inclusion of this tumor among the gastroscopically diagnosable diseases. The present findings were those of malignant intramural infiltration with prominent smooth non-ulcerated hemispheric nodules, and increased translucency of the overlying mucosa. The gastroscopic findings may return to normal temporarily following supervoltage roentgen therapy.
