Menetrier Disease

  • Menetrier Disease is a disease of unknown etiology characterized by profound enlargement of gastric rugae due to hyperplasia and hyper-secretion of cells of the gastric epithelium. Expansion and hyper-secretion of surface epithelial cells can result in such profound loss of protein that hypoalbuminemia and resultant peripheral edema may occur.
