73 Possible Causes for Gastroscopy Abnormal, Rarely Malignant

  • Leiomyosarcoma

    In conclusion, primary pancreatic leiomyosarcoma is a rare and highly malignant tumor associated with poor prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are rare sinonasal malignant tumours with 20 cases of nasal LMS previously reported in the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary cardiac sarcomas are rare malignant tumours and among them, leiomyosarcoma is extremely rare. They are especially rare in a young age group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gastric Ulcer

    Persistence of symptoms post-PPI therapy should lead the clinician to suspect failure of H. pylori eradication, malignancy, or rare causes such as Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome[teachmesurgery.com] Unlike a gastroscopy, its not possible during a barium meal to take tissue samples ( biopsies ) to look under the microscope for tissue abnormalities and infection which help[netdoctor.co.uk] Could my duodenal ulcer possibly be a malignancy? No. Duodenal cancer is very rare and does not resemble duodenal cancer at all.[gihealthcare.com]

  • Duodenal Ulcer

    Abstract Malignant degeneration of a chronic peptic duodenal ulcer is rarely observed, as compared with malignant changes in a peptic ulcer of the stomach.[annals.org] The procedure called gastroscopy involves the placing of an endoscope (a small flexible tube with a camera and light) into the stomach and duodenum to search for abnormalities[mountsinai.org] The malignant degeneration of gastric ulcers appears to be rare. 2,8,31,32 Tumors that are chemically induced in rodents tend to develop in or near ulcers, but the presence[nejm.org]

  • Early-Stage Gastric Cancer

    Gastric signet ring cell carcinoma (SRCC) is a rare form of highly malignant adenocarcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thus, follow-up gastroscopy is essential, so as not to miss such coexisting diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Solitary metastasis of a malignancy to the spleen is rare. We herein describe a case of splenic metastasis from early gastric cancer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS) is a very rare disease which may cause malignant transformation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Prognosis The clinical course of CCS is progressive with occasional spontaneous remissions and frequent relapses, and with rare progression to malignancy.[orpha.net]

  • Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

    Interestingly, although strongyloidiasis is common among AIDS patients in endemic areas, the hyperinfection syndrome is rarely noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heterotopic pancreas is a rare congenital anomaly and usually discovered incidentally.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Rarely, large tumours become malignant.[bmb.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Peptic Esophagitis

    If the malignancy is determined to be small and localized, without any spread beyond the esophagus, then a surgical repair is often opted for and may, on rare occasion cure[wakegastro.com] , oesophageal varices, stricture or Barrett’s oesophagus, previous gastro-oesophageal surgery, patients with abnormal renal or hepatic functions and patients requiring regular[jpma.org.pk] If a tear is deep enough, on rare occasion, it might require surgical repair.[wakegastro.com]

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding

    Mallory-Weiss tear Vascular malformation Rare causes include: Dieulafoy's lesion (a vascular malformation of the proximal stomach).[patient.co.uk] […] common causes are peptic ulcer and oesophago-gastric varices. [ 3 ] Peptic ulcer Oesophagitis Gastritis/erosions Erosive duodenitis Varices Portal hypertensive gastropathy Malignancy[patient.co.uk]

  • Gastropathy

    . - NEGATIVE FOR DYSPLASIA AND NEGATIVE FOR MALIGNANCY.[librepathology.org] Gastroscopy showed ulcerative or elevated lesion(s) 1 cm in diameter in the stomach ( Figure 1 A-D).[bloodjournal.org] The diagnosis is challenging, as there is histopathologic similarity to malignant lymphoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gastric Leiomyosarcoma

    The difficulties in the preoperative diagnosis of this rare malignancy are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are extremely rare malignant neoplasms that originate from smooth muscle cells and may be considered the malignant counterpart of a leiomyoma.[radiopaedia.org] Visit for more related articles at Journal of Neurological Disorders Abstract Introduction: Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are rare malignant neoplasms with smooth muscle differentiation[omicsonline.org]
