Figure 4 Pathological and histological examination. A: The opening of the specimen revealed an 8.0 cm × 1.4 cm polypoid lesion; B: Photomicrograph [hematoxylin and eosin (HE) stain] shows that the diverticulum was composed of all layers of the intestinal wall. Scale bars: 6 mm; C: Photomicrograph (HE stain) shows heterotopic gastric mucosa at the tip of the polypoid lesion. Scale bars: 600 μm.
