Signet ringcarcinoma (SRC), a variant of gastric adenocarcinoma, is known to have a poor prognosis, especially when arising in the young population. In this report, two cases of gastric SRC carcinomas with different outcomes are described. The first case is a 49 years old Bahraini lady who presented with abdominal pain and was found to have a gastric ulcerover the lesser curvature on endoscopy and her biopsy showed features ofa poorly differentiated signet ring adenocarcinoma. This patient was managed by a timelysubtotal gastrectomy with adjuvant chemoradiotherapy. The second caseis ofa 34 years old Bahraini male whom presented withmild dyspepsia and in whomSRCwas an incidental finding on initial endoscopic biopsy that was later confirmed by targeted biopsy.This patientwas advised total gastrectomybut died due to delay in appropriate and timely interventions primarily due to his multiple consultations regarding the same matter.
