Gastric Carcinoma:• Adeno Carcinoma (90%) Lymphoma (4%),Carcinoid & Stromal tumors rare.• Adenocarcinoma Intestinal & Diffuse types.• Early (limited to mucosa) & Advanced stage.• Morphology: (Fungating & Diffuse infiltrative)– Adenocarcinoma:• Intestinal type – fungating, Early diagnosis, better prognosis.• Diffuse type – diffuse infiltrating, late, poor prognosis.– Gastric Lymphoma (MALT) – B cell, H.pylori.– Carcinoid tumor.– GastroIntestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) *sarcoma.
Gastric Adeno Carcinoma:Intestinal Type• H.pylori Metaplasia• C. gastritis / atrophy• HER-2/NEU mutation• Well differentiated• No Signet ring cells.• Gland formation.• Better PrognosisDiffuse Type• Idiopathic/familial.• No precursor lesion• E-Cadherin mutations• Poorly differentitated• Signet ring cells• No gland formation,• Poor Prognosis
