A 29-year-old man with nodular gastritis diagnosed by previous gastroscopy was referred to our hospital for an evaluation of laryngeal discomport and soreness. The patient had no previous history of eradication for Helicobacter pylori-associated gastritis. Gastroscopy demonstrated the presence of gooseflesh-like nodularities on antrum and whitish discoloring lesion with depression on lesser curvature of lower body. The whitish discoloring lesion with depression was histologically diagnosed a signet ring cell carcinoma by endoscopic biopsy. We report this case of a patient with nodular gastritis who received no eradication therapy and was diagnosed with signet ring cell carcinoma with a review of the literature.
