Exsudative or protein-losing gastroenteropathies are disorders characterised by an excesive loss of plasma proteins from the gut. This syndroms can be caused by more then 70 different diseases, one of them is Menetrier´s disease. In this article authors describe a case of 50 years old woman with Menetrier´s disease with typical endoscopy, histology, biochemistry and a typical clinical run, who relapsed on protein-losing enteropathy two years after total gastrectomy. They concentrate on two decisions which they retrospectively find not correct. In a general introduction protein-losing gastroenteropathies are described, especially Menetrier´s disease.
