Resumen

GOMPERTZ, Macarena et al. Ménétrier disease: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2012, vol.140, n.9, pp.1174-1178. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872012000900011.

Background: Ménétrier disease is a rare disorder of the stomach, characterized by giant hypertrophic folds that usually involve the gastric body and fundus, associated to hypoalbuminemia due to serum protein loss across the gastric mucosa. We report a 55-years-old male presenting with abdominal pain, vomiting, weight loss and hypoalbuminemia. Diffuse hypertrophic gastric folds, elevated ulcerated sessile lesions and focal duodenal involvement were seen at endoscopy. Biopsies showed foveolar hyperplasia and glandular atrophy with cystic dilatation. A total gastrectomy was performed with a good outcome.

Palabras clave : Gastritis; hypertrophic; Hypoalbuminemia; Ménétrier disease.
