Abstract

We present a case of isolated granulomatous gastritis in a 21-year-old woman. Initial symptoms included nausea, vomiting and inability to tolerate oral intake. An upper oesophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed nodular and thickened mucosa with histological findings of granulomatous gastritis. Infectious, inflammatory and malignant causes were excluded prior to making a diagnosis of gastric sarcoidosis.
