AREVALO S, Fernando  and  CERRILLO S, Gustavo. Xantoma Gástrico: Hallazgos Histológicos y características Clínico Endoscópicas en el Hospital Nacional Dos de Mayo (1999-2005). Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.3, pp.268-271. ISSN 1022-5129.

Gastric xanthoma has been associated with helicobacter pylori and chronic gastritis by many authors, some authors think the inflammation gives rise to them. This is a descriptive study in all cases of gastric xanthoma whose diagnosis was made during 1999 to june 2005., a simple statistical analysis was used. We found 26 cases, frequency peaked in those from 50-69 years of age (46,1%), gastric xanthoma was most frequently found in the antrum (69,5%), Helicobacter pylori was found in11 cases (42,3%) and intestinal metaplasia was found in 10 ( 38,4%). Our results are similar to those obtained by others authors., we think chronic gastritis and gastric xanthoma share the same origin , but this affirmation must be confirmed by studies with greater statistical value.

Keywords : gastric xanthoma; chronic gastritis; helicobacter pylori; intestinal metaplasia.
