Gross Description -- Gastric mass


Part 1 is labeled "gastric tumor" and consists of a 3.0 x 1.8 x 1.1 cm. mass of pink-tan tissue which has a polypoid flowering appearance of the mucosa throughout with very little muscularis propria present.

Part 2 is labeled "stomach" and consists of a 29.0 x 19.0 x 1.0 cm gastric resection, extending from, but not including, the gastroesophageal junction to the pylorus. The surface of the gastric cardia and fundus is carpeted by pink-tan, hyperplastic folds which are contiguous and appear confined to the mucosa. In some areas, the mucosa exhibits a polypoid flowering appearance. The mucosa of the antrum is pink tan with decreased rugal folds. The gastric serosa is pink-tan and smooth with minimal fibrous adhesions. Few lymph nodes are identified in the peri-iliac adipose tissue measuring from 0.8 to 1.5 cm.
