Abstract

A fifty-year-old man was referred with progressive abdominal pain accompanying with anorexia and weight loss. Upper endoscopy was considered as a helpful procedure for the patient.

Upper endoscopy revealed increased mucosal fold thickness due to decreased expansion in body and fundus with multiple erosions, in favor of mural infiltration compatible with diffuse type of gastric cancer, multiple standard biopsies were taken but pathology was reported negative. Abdominal CT-SCAN was done and it was highly suspicious of malignancy, so bite on bite biopsies were performed again. Pathology report was negative for the second time. Eventually, EUS-FNA was done, full thickness of all layers of stomach with multiple lymph nodes were noticed in EUS. With 22 G needle, FNA with slow-pull and multiple pass technique was performed to obtain many and sufficient core samples for cellblock cytology was taken. Pathology report was adenocarcinoma with signet ring cells.as a result, EUS-FNA was an accurate procedure for diagnosing gastric cancer.
