Abstract

In this report, we present two cases of gastric diverticulum (GD) documented by upper gastrointestinal contrast radiographic studies and computed tomography (CT). The first one, a 51-year-old woman, has a typical presentation, with the GD occurring in the posterior wall of the fundus (figure 1). The second one, a 72-year-old woman, has a sliding diaphragmatic hernia. In this patient, the gastric fundus, which also has a diverticulum, is herniated, being located inside the thorax (figure 2 and figure 3). Both patients discovered the presence of gastric diverticula incidentally during diagnostic testing for other reasons.
