Abstract

A clinicopathologic study was done on 21 cases of early carcinoma of the gastric cardia. The disease was preponderant in men, with a male—female ratio of 17:4. Five patients had no symptoms, while the other 16 had epigastric pain, epigastric discomfort, or other symptoms. Melena or hematemesis occurred in five patients. The first detection was made by barium study in 16 and by endoscopy in five. Detailed examinations using double‐contrast radiography in both the prone right anterior oblique and supine left lateral projections were useful to detect the early carcinoma of the gastric cardia. All depressed‐type carcinomas were incidentally detected during endoscopic examinations of benign peptic ulcers, therefore, whenever endoscopic examinations are being done for other entities, all the stomach including the cardia should be examined, carefully and continuously. Compared with early carcinomas of the other areas of the stomach, grossly elevated and histologically well‐differentiated early carcinomas were more common in the gastric cardia. In the mucosa adjacent to the carcinoma, chronic gastritis was apparent in almost all cases, although intestinal metaplasia was found less frequently than in other areas of the stomach.
