Saccular image projected in communication with the region of the gastric cardia and fundus. Inside there is a net content and gas forming fluid level.

Case Discussion:

Gastric diverticula are rare and is usually asymptomatic. In most cases the discovery of this diverticulum is incidentally by radiologic findings or autopsy.

This kind of diverticulum is not larger than 10 cm and its most frequent localization is on the posterior wall of the cardia and on the lesser gastric curvature.
