gastric tubular adenocarcinoma

Saturday 16 February 2013

Tubular adenocarcinoma is the most common histologic type of early gastric carcinoma.

It tends to form polypoid or fungating masses grossly, and histologically demonstrates irregularly distended, fused or branching tubules of various sizes, often with intraluminal mucus, nuclear and inflammatory debris.
