Gastric wall abscess is a form of phlegmonous gastritis and has been very rarely reported. The pathogenesis of gastric wall abscess is thought to involve a focal injury to the gastric mucosa such as a penetrating trauma from an ingested foreign body or an endoscopic biopsy, where by bacterial infection occurs. Gastritis cystica profunda is a rare disease in which hyperplasia of mature glandular epithelium extends into the tissues beneath the submucosa. It shows multiple small cysts in the mucosa and submucosa of the stomach. To our knowledge, the association of gastric wall abscess with gastritis cystica profunda has never been reported yet. We, recently, experienced a case of gastric wall abcess associated with gastritis cystica profunda. Herein, we report it with a brief review with literatures.
