Abstract
Squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach has been reported to occur at a younger age and have a worse prognosis than gastric adenocarcinoma. Even though squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach has several different clinical characteristics, it is difficult to distinguish it from gastric adenocarcinoma by radiological or endoscopical methods without a histopathological confirmation. Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach is a rare type of cancer. To date, only six cases have been reported in Korea. Gastric cancer seldom grows exophytically and there are no reports of squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach with exophytic growth in Korea. We report a case of pure squamous cell gastric cancer with exophytic growth with a brief review of the relevant literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2006;33:357⁣360)
