In this presentation authors would like to report a case with a lesion related to a ventricularly located pyogenic granuloma. A 65-year-old man was hospitalized with symptoms of acute gastritis. Despite symptomatic treatment for two days he was still in poor condition. Upper panendoscopy revealed Helicobacter pylori associated gastritis and a polypoid lesion with the size of a bean close to the cardia. The histology examination of the lesion verified pyogenic granuloma with gastric localization. After complete Helicobacter pylori eradication followed by PPI and H2 blocker-therapy, the polypoid configuration gradually decreased and after approximately one year it could not be detected and the patient remained symptom-free. According to literature data, pyogenic granuloma is extremely rare in the gastrointestinal tract except for the oral cavity which is the reason why authors intended to call the attention for this rare occurrence.
