We present a case of protein-losing gastropathy with hypertrophic gastric folds. A 38-year-old man was hospitalized for severe epigastric pain suggestive of hypoproteinemia. Endoscopic and radiologic examination revealed enlarged gastric folds on the greater curvature of the stomach. Endoscopic sonography revealed marked thickening of the second layer on the greater curvature of the stomach. Endoscopic mucosal resection was performed, and the diagnosis was hypertrophic gastritis. After prednisolone treatment, hypoproteinemia and the enlarged gastric folds of the stomach resolved.
