The patient was a 35-year-old man who felt persistent hunger pain for five months. Upper gastrointestinal scope studies revealed a 20-mm polypoid lesion located in the middle body of the stomach. The pathological diagnosis revealed a granuloma in the biopsy specimens. The eradication of Helicobacter pylori had no effect on the patient's abdominal symptoms. Ultimately, the polypoid lesion was resected using endoscopy, and the patient was relieved of his hunger pain. The final diagnosis was a pyogenic granuloma in the stomach. This study is the first report of a pyogenic granuloma in the stomach in which the patient's abdominal pain disappeared after tumor resection performed via endoscopy.
