We report here the first case of ciliated gastric metaplasia in a Croatian patient. This is also the first case of ciliated metaplasia reported in a patient of Mediterranean descent. Cilia were found in slightly cystically dilated gastric glands underneath a gastric adenoma with severe dysplasia. They were visualized by desmin immunohistochemical stain. Cells that presented with cilia were columnar cells, some of them with vacuolization of the cytoplasm. This case report shows that ciliated metaplasia occurs in patients of Southern European origin.
