Author

Abstract
We describe three patients who developed fundic gland polyps after starting a treatment with acid suppressive agents. All these patients were treated for a long time with H-2-blockers or proton pump inhibiting agents for reflux oesophagitis. in one patient the fundic gland polyps disappeared after discontinuation of the acid suppressing therapy, A possible causal role of these agents is suggested. A review of the literature about fundic gland polyps and their possible association with acid suppressive therapy and a short review about proton pump inhibiting agents and the appearance of gastric polyps in general is given.
