Gastric mucosal polyps in pernicious anaemia.Scand J Gastroenterol 1977; 12(1):49-52SJ
In a 4-year follow-up study of 68 patients with pernicious anaemia gastric polyps were observed in 25 patients. In some patients the polyps seemed to vanish completely from one year to another, while they might ascen or increase in other patients. None of these polyps underwent malignanttransformation during thperiod f observation, and by histological examination they could be classified as non-neoplastic regenerative benign polyps in an atrophic gastric mucosa. In our opinion the surgical attitude to these nonneoplastic gastric polyps in pernicious anaemia should be restrictive.
