Overview

Linitis plastica may develop as a primary or secondary pathology. As a primary pathology, linitis plastica may be due to defective intracellular adhesions caused by germline truncations mutation in CDH1 gene. CDH1 gene codes for E-cadherin adhesion protein. Secondarily, linitis plastica may be caused by metastasis to the stomach or by the ingestion of lye.
