This paper reports the finding of benign foreign-body-type multinucleated giant cells and clumps of adenocarcinoma cells in gastric brushing cytology specimens of a case confirmed by radiology and histology as pneumatosis cystoides gastrica associated with an ulcerated carcinoma. Pneumatosis cystoides gastrica should be included in the differential diagnosis of benign multinucleated giant cells found in gastric cytology smears.
