Utrasonographic features of 32 patients who had gastrointestinal pathology proved by endoscopy and / or exploratory loporotomy with pathological sections were analysed. The pathology was classified into neoplasm group (17 / 32) and non – neoplasm group (15 / 32). Among 17 cases of neoplasm group, echoic masses were found in 9 cases (9 /17), thicken bowel wall in 7 cases (7 /17) which all are adenocarcinoma of stomach and mixed echoic mass in only I case (1/17). In non – neoplasm group, we found gastric outlet obstruction or dissented stomach without mass 5 cases ( 5 /15), mixed echoic mass 4 cases (4 /15), echoic mass 2 cases ( 2 /15), thicken bowel wall 2 cases ( 2 /15), pseudokidney sign 1 case and matted fluid – filled bowel loops 1 case. We found hat most cases of the neoplasm group have echoic mass and thicken bowel wall (16 /17). The variation in sonographic findings in non – neoplasm group depended on pathological process of the diseases as discussed in detail in the text.
