Abstract

Gastric xanthomas are rare tumor-like lesions, most commonly occurring in the antral region. We set out to describe a patient with a history of Barrett's esophagus status post two radiofrequency ablations (RFAs) and an endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) who developed a gastric xanthoma just below the Z-line with recurrent esophageal metaplasia. Histopathological confirmation of xanthomas are needed to rule out malignancy. While gastric xanthomas themselves are benign conditions, regular follow-up is recommended if there is a high index of suspicion of malignancy or alarming symptoms develop.
