Statistics from Altmetric.com

A 60-year-old woman was referred to our department for an incidental finding of gastric polypoid lesion on enhanced CT (E-CT) (figure 1A). She had a medical history of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated 3 years prior with transcatheter arterial chemoembolisation. E-CT is routinely performed once a year for the surveillance post HCC therapy. No obvious recurrence was detected in the liver. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a 30 mm pedunculated gastric polypoid lesion on the greater curvature of the antrum (figure 1B).
