Right: Endoscopic appearance of the ulcer (arrows) found at the lesser curvature during gastroscopy

Computed tomography images

Above: Ventrodorsal survey abdominal radiograph showing a soft-tissue opacity along the lesser curvature (arrows) and extending toward the pylorus. Note the gas-filled gastric
fundus and cardia. Gas normally accumulates in the gastric antrum but cannot due to the gastric mass.
