Abstract

Gastric diverticula are rare and may sometimes cause diagnostic confusion. Most cases are asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally. However, sometimes they can cause a variety of clinical manifestations and may be complicated by bleeding, perforation, or malignancy. Therefore, clinicians should be aware of this unusual finding and the available management options.
