Primary gastric teratoma on the cardiac orifice in an adult

By Liu Liu, Wen Zhuang, Zhong Chen, Yong Zhou and Xiao-Ran Huang

Abstract

Gastric teratoma (GT) is a seldom seen congenital abnormality. GT always occurs in children. The greater curvature and posterior wall of the stomach are the most common sites involving GT. We diagnosed a case of GT located on the inferior wall of the cardiac orifice in a 20-year-old man. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of GT located on the wall of the cardiac orifice in an adult in the English literature. We report this unusual case as an addition to this rare disease usually found in children. Computed tomography combined with endoscopic ultrasonography can be selected to diagnose GT
