1/2. Gastric sarcoidosis presenting with haematemesis.

    sarcoidosis is a very rare disease in singapore. Sarcoid granuloma involving the stomach alone is even more rare, and only about 21 cases have been reported in the literature up to 1953 (Scott et alii, 1953). In a review of the literature, Wadina and Melamed (1966) found 34 cases of granulomatous involvement of the stomach, all purporting to be sarcoidosis. However, on closer examination of the evidence, many of these 34 cases of so-called sarcoidosis of the stomach were subject to doubt. Bleeding from gastric sarcoidosis is also rare, and only about eight cases have been reported in the literature up to 1970. The present report presents a further example of this rare cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding and attempts to review the significance of sarcoid granulomas in the stomach.

2/2. angiodysplasia of cardia of stomach--a case report.

    angiodysplasia of gastrointestinal tract is still thought to be an entity of unknown aetiology. This lesion is most commonly observed in elderly patients presenting with severe and persistent iron deficiency anaemia, following occult blood loss or acute episodes of haematemesis. In the stomach antral vascular ectasia is the most common presentation. We report an autopsy case of vascular ectasia in the cardia of stomach in a young patient with clinical symptoms of anaemia as the presentation and an associated secondary hemosiderosis of liver.
