Abstract

A patient is presented here who had gastric sarcoidosis which was initially diagnosed as Menetrier's disease. The English medical literature comprises 19 cases with symptomatic gastric sarcoidosis, and these are reviewed. The clinical, roentgenographic, and endoscopic findings in gastric sarcoidosis are quite variable, but of the symptomatic patients, 75% present with pain and 25% with bleeding; surgery is required in 50% of patients, while of those treated with corticosteroids, 66% improve symptomatically. Endoscopic biopsies are accurate and essential in establishing the diagnosis.
