Rare Gastric Cardia Polyp Causing Complete Esophageal Obstruction


A 67-year-old man presented with food impaction and was found to have a gastric polyp obstructing the esophageal outlet. Due to the polyp’s location and size, no immediate endoscopic intervention was performed, and the patient returned for intraoperative endoscopy and polypectomy. Cases of gastric polyps causing esophageal obstruction have not been identified in the literature. This case is unique for the location and size of the polyp, necessitating concomitant surgical management.
