[Value of intraoperative gastric cytology in pernicious anaemia (author's transl)].Arch Geschwulstforsch 1978; 48(1):65-9AG
A case of pernicious anaemia is described in which the diagnosis of gastric cancer in absence of stomach complaints was established by gastric lavage cytology. A small polypous lesion was detected by gastrotomy and cytologic print smears revealed cancer cells. The value of intraoperative gastric cytology is pointed out. Close cooperation of surgeon, pathologist and cytologist is mandatory.
