A 41-year-old woman was referred with epigastric discomfort. She had a 20-year history of SLE. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) examination showed severe atrophic gastritis in the stomach and a protruding lesion was detected. Histological examination showed a carcinoid tumor with cytoplasmic staining with chromogranin-A. Using an endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) technique, en bloc resection of the tumor was performed. No recurrence has been found for 3 years after the treatment. Type I gastric carcinoid can occur at an earlier age with AIG and autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This is the first report of gastric carcinoid that was treated by ESD.
