Abstract

PLASMA CELL GRANULOMA STOMACH IN AN ADULT MAN: A CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE

Dr. Nabeel Nazeer*, Dr. P. K. Baskaran and Dr. P radaraju

ABSTRACT

Plasma cell granuloma, also known as inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour or inflammatory pseudotumour, is a nonneoplastic process characterized by an unregulated growth of inflammatory cells. It most commonly occurs in the lung and upper respiratory tract but it has been recognized that any anatomic localization can be involved. Plasma cell granuloma in adults are very rare, especially in the stomach. There is very little data on the aetiology, pathogenesis and the most effective treatment for this disorder; therefore, the prognosis of the condition is difficult to predict. The most common treatment for these lesions is complete excision although this is not always possible. Radiotherapy and steroid therapy have been suggested, with a few isolated successes; however, further data is needed before these therapies can be safely advocated as an alternative to excision. We present a case of a 52-year old man with plasma cell granuloma in the stomach and a review of the literature.
