Am J Dis Child. 1981;135(9):846-847. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1981.02130330056018

• A 12-year-old girl with recurrent episodes of otitis was found to have anemia and occult blood loss due to a solitary hyperplastic polyp of the stomach. Polypectomy was performed successfully by endoscopy. To our knowledge, this benign epithelial tumor of the stomach has not been described in children.
