An attempt was made to classify 61 cases of gastric carcinomas according to Lauren«SQ»s classification from the period January 1992-December 1993. All the gastrectomy specimens resected for carcinoma of stomach were included in the study. Of 61 cases, 57 were classifiable according to Lauren«SQ»s criteria. 38 (62.3%) were of intestinal type and 19 (31.1%) were of diffuse type. 4 cases could not be classified into either group. There were significant correlation of type III intestinal metaplasia with intestinal type gastric carcinoma.
