Idiopathic ischaemic infarction of the stomach is an extremely rare condition since only 2 other cases have been published in the Literature so far. The Authors report a case of such entity on a 75 year old male patient, admitted from the accident and emergency department because of a upper digestive tract haemorrhage with clinical signs of hypovolemic shock. The patient subsequently underwent an upper gastro-intestinal endoscopy that suspected an ulcerated gastric neoplasm. The patient therefore underwent a total gastrectomy and was discharged home on p.o. day X. The pathology report showed an Ischaemic infarction of gastric mucosal tissue with pomphoid Oedema of submucosal layer. Ulcerative superficial necrosis with venous haemorragic swarm and focal acute pseudomembranous inflammation. Not neoplastic features. Etiopathogenetic, pathophisiologic ipoteses and clinical implication of Idiopathic ischaemic infarction of the stomach are discussed.

Abstract

Idiopathic ischaemic infarction of the stomach is an extremely rare condition since only 2 other cases have been published in the Literature so far. The Authors report a case of such entity on a 75 year old male patient, admitted from the accident and emergency department because of a upper digestive tract haemorrhage with clinical signs of hypovolemic shock. The patient subsequently underwent an upper gastro-intestinal endoscopy that suspected an ulcerated gastric neoplasm. The patient therefore underwent a total gastrectomy and was discharged home on p.o. day X. The pathology report showed an Ischaemic infarction of gastric mucosal tissue with pomphoid Oedema of submucosal layer. Ulcerative superficial necrosis with venous haemorragic swarm and focal acute pseudomembranous inflammation. Not neoplastic features. Etiopathogenetic, pathophisiologic ipoteses and clinical implication of Idiopathic ischaemic infarction of the stomach are discussed.
