Gastric cancer accounts for one of the most common cancers worldwide. Adenocarcinoma is the most common type of malignancy of the stomach comprising more than 90% of all gastric cancers. Incidence and pattern of gastric cancer varies amongst various geographical regions and ethnic groups. AIM: The present study was conducted at Silchar Medical College and hospital to know the histopathological spectrum of carcinoma stomach. Methods: The present study was conducted at Silchar Medical College and Hospital. 40 cases of gastric adenocarcinoma were collected over one year (from June 2015 to May 2016).The cases included 26 endoscopic biopsies and 14 partial gastrectomy specimens. Diagnosis was made by the histopathologic examination of H & E stained slides. Results: In our study ulcerative growth was the most common growth type macroscopically (65%) and the most common location of tumor being the antrum (67.5%). According to Laurens classification, intestinal types predominated in our study (77.5%). According to WHO classification, tubular adenocarcinoma was the most common (60%). Most of the tumors in this study were found to be poorly differentiated types (57.5%). Conclusion: This study will prove to be useful to know the histopathological spectrum of carcinoma stomach in different geographical locations.
