Abstract

Fundic gland polyps (FGP) are the most common type of gastric polyps, with an incidence on endoscopy of 0.8~1.9%. They have been considered as benign lesions, without the potential for malignant transformation. High grade dysplasia and gastric adenocarcinomas associated with FGP have been described in patients with familial, as well as attenuated adenomatous polyposis (FAP). In contrast, dysplasia associated with FGP in non-FAP patients is extremely rare, and there have been no reports of sporadic FGP with high grade dysplasia in the Korean literature. Herein, we report one case of high grade dysplasia associated with sporadic FGP in a non-FAP patient treated with an endoscopic polypectomy.
