Giant benign gastric ulcer.
A very large ulcer crater, measuring almost 4cm in diameter, is seen to fill with barium on the posterior wall of the body of the stomach. Thickened oedematous gastric folds are seen to radiate to the edge of the ulcer crater (u). A small pool of barium is visible in the antrum of the stomach (p). Fluoroscopy showed that this was inconstant and therefore of no pathological significance.
