Gastritis cystica profunda (GCP) is a rare condition characterized by polypoid cystic ectasia of the submucosal layer with cystic dilatation of the glandular structures of the stomach. The probable pathogenesis refers to degradation of the integrity of the muscularis mucosa and migration of epithelial cells to the submucosal layer. The most common cause known in the literature for this occurrence is previous stomach surgery. A case presented with two GCP lesions in different locations in the stomach without any history of previous surgery.
