A case of early gastric cancer arising from Ménétrier's disease in the stomach is described. The patient was a 53-year-old man, who suffered from epigastralgia. Radiological and endoscopic examination demonstrated giant mucosal folds along the greater curvature of the stomach. On the distal margin, signet-ring cell carcinoma was demonstrated by biopsy. The coexistence of Ménétrier's disease and early gastric cancer has rarely been reported. Cases reported in the literature were reviewed and the increased malignant potential of Ménétrier's disease was discussed.
