Overview

The most potent risk factor in the development of linitis plastica is the presence of CDH1 gene mutations. Other risk factors include Asian race, male sex, and low dietary fiber.

Risk Factors

Common risk factors in the development of linitis plastica may include:[1][2][3][4]

  • Asian race (particularly Japanese)
  • Male
  • Presence of CDH1 gene mutation
  • History of breast cancer
