Images of gastroscopy showing a hemispherical bulge with smooth surface (a) and two small ulcers on the posterior wall of the lesser curvature of the stomach (b). c and d. Images of endoscopic ultrasound showing hypoechoic masses with a size of 26 mm × 21.5 mm (c) and ununiform echo with some area of strong echo inside the lesion, and rich blood flow inside the lesion (d). e and f. Images of Haematoxylin & Eosin staining showing patches of caseating necrosis and granulomatous inflammation (e: 40x, f: 100x). g-i. Image of Chest CT scan at hospital admission (December 2013) showing high densities and patchy nodules in the upper right lung (g), calcified pleural nodules in the lower right pleural (h), and soft tissue nodules in the lesser curvature of the stomach (i). j-l. Image of chest CT at the follow-up (May 2015) showing that the patchy nodules in the upper right lung were partially absorbed (j), smaller pleural nodules (k), and substantially smaller nodules with some calcification in the lesser curvature of the stomach and calcified pleural nodules in the lower left pleural (l).
