● Nodular thickenings of gastric mucosa with acid hypersecretion and often peptic ulceration, that is not associated with gastrin-secreting tumor
● Very rare
● Cases with protein loss resemble Menetrierís disease, but also have hypergastrinemia
● Cases without protein loss are similar to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, but no pancreatic tumors, no G cell hyperplasia, no hypergastrinemia
● May be caused by parietal cells that are overly sensitive to normal serum gastrin levels
● Glandular hyperplasia with normal foveolae
● May have peptic ulcer disease
