A 71-year-old male patient underwent curative endoscopic submucosal dissection for gastric adenoma. A histologically confirmed hyperplastic polyp developed at the resection site, and the size was reduced after successful Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) eradication. After the H pylori eradication, another adenoma was observed and curatively resected endoscopically, but no hyperplastic polyp developed at the second resection site. Comparisons of pre- and post-resection conditions between the two adenomas revealed that H pylori infection and proton pump inhibitor use are possible causes of, and H pylori eradication is one of the treatment options for, such a polyp.
