Definition / General
  • Single or multiple small (2 mm) polypoid projections in gastric fundus / body
  • Considered to be hamartomas or peculiar form of hyperplastic polyp
  • Either sporadic or associated with familial adenomatosis polyposis syndrome, tuberous sclerosis
  • Multiple polyps associated with proton pump inhibitors
  • Fundic gland cysts are associated with increasing periods of treatment with omeprazole for GERD, and with  H. pylori  eradication (Hum Pathol 2000;31:684)
  • In familial adenomatous polyposis syndrome, occur with increased frequency, 25% are dysplastic vs. 1% of sporadic fundic gland polyps (Am J Surg Pathol 1998;22:293)
  • Sporadic cases associated with loss of immunoreactivity for tuberin, a protein altered in tuberous sclerosis (Mod Pathol 2002;15:862)
  • Patients with 10+ polyps often have beta-catenin mutations (Mod Pathol 2002;15:718)
Case Reports
