The natural history, diagnosis, and management of a patient with hypertrophic gastropathy is presented. Serial x-ray and gastroscopic examinations during life in our patient revealed progressive changes from giant rugal folds to polyps to carcinoma of the stomach. Review of the literature reveals that carcinona occurs in approximately 8 per cent of the cases of this relatively rare lesion. A cursory comparison of three major hypertrophic stomach lesions and their association with carcinoma of the stomach suggests a similar incidence.

    Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a heterogeneous disorder than arises via multiple distinct pathways, such as the serrated pathway, in which serrated polyps (including variants of hyperplastic polyps) are the precursor lesions. Approximately 15-20% of all CRCs arise via the serrated pathway, and these...
