Abstract

We describe the clinical scenario in an 80 year old
female who presented with history of epigastric
discomfort and postprandial fullness of three weeks
duration without any alarming symptoms. On upper GI
endoscopy she was found to have gastric polyp with a
long stalk which was partially obstructing her pyloric ring
giving rise to features of intermittent gastric outlet
obstruction Polypectomy was done with complete
relief of symptoms .She is following our clinic for last 6
months now. Although possibility of malignant etiology
in gastric out let obstruction ranks high in the elderly
some patients are lucky to have a benign cause as the
index case. Report of the case and brief review is
presented.
