Early gastric cancer (EGC) confers a survival rate greater than 90% at 5 years. The overall prognosis of gastric cancer has gradually improved over the past decades, with growing awareness of the potential carcinogens, surveillance programs and early diagnosis, as well as advances in surgical techniques and multimodality treatments. To improve prognosis and quality of life in gastric cancer patients, both standardization and individualization of managements are imperative. We report a case of EGC, which was diagnosed only after gastrectomy for recurrent hemorrhages from gastric submucosal angiodysplasia and where the traditional diagnostic techniques (endoscopy, histology, EUS, TC) did not show any suspicious lesion.
