A 69‐yr‐old white female presented to her physician with a 3‐yr history of epigastric pain. Gastric biopsies revealed noncaseating granulomas in the mucosa and submucosa. No definite etiological factor could be detected. A diagnosis of idiopathic granulomatous gastritis was made. In the past, this condition has prompted surgery. Steroids have also been advocated. Our patient was managed successfully with symptomatic treatment, without the use of steroids or surgical intervention. She remains well 4 yr later.
