The location and size of 132 gastric ulcers were evaluated radiologically and endoscopically. Results suggest that the classically noted concentration of ulcers along the lesser curvature and in the distal stomach remains valid despite changes in diagnostic methods. It was also found that proximally located ulcers tend to be larger than those elsewhere, whereas those in the distal stomach are smaller. Concentration of ulcers in the proximal stomach in elderly patients, as suggested by previous authors, could not be confirmed.
