Adenomioma Gástrico en adulto reporte de caso.
Keywords:Adenomyoma, Stomach, Pylorus
Objective: Report the clinical case of Gastric Adenomyoma as etiology of pyloric syndrome.
Clinical case: We present a 52 years old man who attended the emergency room due pyloric syndrome and who underwent a distal gastrectomy. The pathological report revealed a gastric adenomyoma with ulcerative lesion.
Discussion: This pathology is an unusual finding, and the literature describe it with extremely low rate of malignant transformation.
Conclusion: Gastric adenomyoma is a infrequent pathology and should be taken into account when endoscopic studies are not enough to determine the etiology of a pyloric syndrome.
