Gastric hyperplastic polyps (GHP) represent the most common type of gastric polyps, usually less than 2 cm, and have a very low malignant potential.

Doctors present a very rare case of a giant hyperplastic polyp with a superficial transition to adenocarcinoma (carcinoma in situ), arising from the untypical subcardial part of the stomach and prolapsed through the pylorus into the horizontal part of the duodenum, causing anemia and complete obstruction of the duodenal lumen with gastric outlet syndrome.

Due to the giant size of the semi-pedunculated polyp and the high malignant potential of this polyp, they preferred the surgical treatment of the patient. During the operation, doctors additionally observed enlarged and phlegmonous altered locally complicated gallbladder, which was not diagnosed before.

Doctors performed cholecystectomy and partial resection of the posterior wall of the stomach, followed by no complications in the postoperative period.
