CANCER of the gastric remnant, developing after gastric resection for duodenal ulcer, is uncommon.

Recently Cote and associates1 of Mayo Clinic reported 5 such cases over a period of 50 years, 1905 through 1954. They concluded that cancer of the stomach rarely develops in patients who have been treated for duodenal ulcer by gastric resection.

Pack and Banner2 of Memorial Center for Cancer, New York, report 2 cases among 1,623 case records of gastric cancer. Freedman and Berne3 surveyed the world literature from 1926 to 1954 and found only 24 such cases, and reported one.

We wish to report 2 such cases. This report is intended to alert the profession to the early consideration of carcinoma in the differential diagnosis of stomal lesions, at a time when surgery may be of greatest help to the patient.
