A case of hematemesis from vanishing tumor of the stomach

A case of hematemesis from vanishing tumor of the stomach

Gastroenterological Endoscopy 31(12): 3259-3263

The patient was a 82 year-old man with a chief complaint of hematemesis. The emergency endoscopy showed a tumor accompanying with a irregular ucler and coagula at the gastric fornix. A malignant submucosal tumor was strongly suspected. However, histological finding revealed the inflammatory change in several biopsized tissue. After one month, the lesion disappeared on video-endoscopic examination. Recently, there have been a number of reports concerning vanishing tumor of the stomach caused by gastric anisakiasis. In this case, anisakis antibody was detected by immunoelectrophoresis, however neither eosinophilic infiltration nor anisakis bodies were histologically observed. Cases with hematemesis caused by vanishing tumor of the stomach were extremely rare in Japan.
