A 33‐yr‐old man, with known peptic disease, developed giant thickening of the gastric mucosa and hypoproteinemia. Serial endoscopic and x‐ray examinations of the upper gastrointestinal tract were available before and after the development of Menetrier's disease. In a 1‐yr interval, erosive gastritis developed in a normal gastric mucosa, which was followed a few months later by hypoproteinemia. The patient developed the disease while being treated with histamine‐2 receptor antagonists.
