Gastrogastric fistula is an extremely rare complication of benign gastric ulcer. We report a case of gastrogastric fistula in a 67-year-old male who presented with symptoms of dyspnea on exertion, pretibial pitting edema, and dyspepsia. He suffered from a peptic ulcer 9 years ago and from a gastric outlet obstruction 5 years ago. A gastrogastric fistula was observed by endoscopy, and the biopsy forceps were passed through the fistulous tract. The patient was treated with proton pump inhibitors, and H. pylori was eradicated. Gastrogastric fistula, unlike other types of gastric fistulas, can be cured using non-surgical therapy as long as complications such as peritonitis, gastric outlet obstruction, and bleeding do not occur.
