Unlike the completely differentiated aberrant pancreatic tissue found in the small intestine, the gastric lesions form organoid adenomyomatous structures that are seen with the naked eye as small masses on the mucosal surface. These may be hemispherical, conical, cylindrical or nipple-like, and their size may be between a few millimetres and 4-5 cm in diameter; most are 1-3 cm in diameter. The most characteristic macroscopic feature is the orifice of a duct that can sometimes be found on the surface of the "polyp" by the use of a fine probe.
