Abstract

Two cases of multiple gastric polyps associated with parathyroid adenomas are presented. A review of the literature revealed four patients with multiple gastric polyps and multiple endocrine adenomatosis. The possiblity of multiple gastric polyps as a variant of the MEA syndrome complex is explored. Emphasis is placed on the need for thorough endocrine evaluation in patients with multiple gastric polyps.
