A rare case of symptomatic gastric diverticulum surgically managed is reported. The pathogenetic and clinical aspects of the disease are discussed and the usefulness of endoscopy as a means for differentiation between medical and surgical cases is stressed. A review of the literature is made and the conclusion is drawn that this uncommon pathology is often asymptomatic and requires surgical management only in complicated cases and in symptomatic patients that are not responding to medical treatment, as showed by the long-term follow-up (333 months) of the reported case.
