Abstract

Benign and malignant diseases of the stomach and duodenum are common in the elderly. Atypical presentations frequently are seen, making early diagnosis difficult. Aggressive surgical and medical management regimens are usually possible, giving cure rates comparable to those seen in the younger population.
