Shape and position of the stomach can vary greatly with or without any physiological disturbances. However some of its rare shapes may result in the formation of volvulus or may increase the risk of gastric ulcer. Variant shapes of the stomach may be of congenital occurrence or are acquired later on in life. Due to the fact that pathologies of stomach are fairly common diseases nowadays, the problem of diseases associated with the shape of stomach is a very topical issue. We report here 2 atypical shapes of stomach during routine dissection for postgraduate studies in Department of Rachana Sharir, SDM College of Ayurveda and Hospital Hassan with 1 case of hourglass stomach and 1 case of retort shape stomach noted. These variations are possibly of congenital origin and may lead to radiological misinterpretations. Dr. Muteeba Naz | Dr. Uma B.
