  ICD-10: C16.9; ICD-O: 8144/3

52-year-old female with illdefined upper abdominal pain and anaemia. The CT scan reveals infiltration of the fundus of the stomach. Partial gastric resection

- Gastric wall of the fundus area with gastric glands
-infiltration of the lamina propria, predominantly with plasma cells, compatible with a mild chronic gastritis
- in one half of the specimen the normal structure of the gastric wall is interrupted and replaced by a mostly tubular, relatively well-defined carcinomatous tissue with histological similarity to carcinoma of the colon, hence the nomenclature "intestinal type".
