Role of Endoscopic Ultrasound for the Diagnosis of Isolated Gastric Cavernous Haemangioma XD03-XD04

Jinlong Hu, Hua Sao, Siyu Sun

Mr. Siyu Sun,
Endoscopy Center, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang-110004, China.

Isolated gastric cavernous haemangioma is extremely rare in the stomach. Historically, endoscopy, computed tomography and MRI had been used to diagnose gastric cavernous haemangioma. Biopsy, is not an option due to its vascular nature and submucosal location. We report an isolated gastric cavernous haemangioma that was diagnosed by end-oscopic ultrasound in a 25-year-old male and treated by laparotomy. The final diagnosis of cavernous haemagioma was confirmed by post-operative pathology. There was no recurrence during 3-month follow-up period.
