Linitis plastic is the apperance of malignant tumor of stomach, presenting as the hard wall of stomach with atrophy. I'm not 100% sure but I remembered in this way. Will check it up for confirmation.

hey guys i goggled Linitis plastica, and i found this!


Causes of linitis plastica could be lye ingestion or metastatic infiltration of the stomach, particularly breast and lung carcinoma. [1] It is not associated with H. pylori infection or chronic gastritis.

You're right. MALToma is easier to treat and with better prognosis than adenocarcinoma as far as I'm aware (since the latter is definitively cured with total gastrectomy but most patients do not qualify for this).

Don't know what the official answer is but I would have gone with B as well.

the answer is A. Reason unknown. This is purely facts.
Polypoid gastric cancer is not the common type of cancer, occuring on the lesser curvature upper part of GIT ( but anywhere else is poss), associated with some familial cancer syndrome.

I looked up all of these from Modern Surgical Pathology (MSP) or Rapid Review Pathology (RRP)

A) Group A blood is a risk factor for gastric neoplasms (MSP, RRP)

B) There is an association (RRP, MSP just says that H. pylori is an association for adenocarcinoma)

C) Goljan's book specifically says that Linitis plastica is not associated with H. pylori (RRP)

D) MALToma is highly associated with H. pylori reflected in its treatment (RRP, MSP)

E) Specific line from MSP: "Malignant endocrine, mesenchymal, and lymphoid neoplasms [of the stomach] tend to have a much better outcome." (MSP)
