Risk Factors for Malignant Transformation:Increasing size.Villous (papillary)- develop malignancy in 65 %.Higher grades of dysplasia.Non-flat adenomas. PathogenesisThis is the same as gastric adenocarcinoma.40% of adenomas are associated with synchro-nous gastric carcinomas.Progression risk of low grade adenoma is around 5% within 15 months- higher than colonic adeno-mas Tubular, tubulovillous, or villous (papillary) Clinical features of Gastric AdenomasThese usually on background of chronic gastritis.The incidence is the same in men and women.These occur in middle and older age subjects.
