Curling's ulcer or a Curling ulcer is an acute
peptic ulcer of the duodenum resulting as a
complication from severe burns when reduced
plasma volume leads to ischemia and cell
necrosis (sloughing) of the gastric mucosa .
A Cushing ulcer is a gastric ulcer produced by
elevated intracranial pressure . It is also called
von Rokitansky -Cushing syndrome. Apart from in
the stomach , it may also develop in the proximal
part of the duodenum and the distal esophagus.
Cushing - stomach . Curling - 1st part of duodenum
Stress ulcers are single or multiple mucosal
defects which can become complicated by upper
gastrointestinal bleeding during the physiologic
stress of serious illness. Ordinary peptic ulcers are
found commonly in the gastric antrum and the
duodenum whereas stress ulcers are found
commonly in fundic mucosa and can be located
anywhere within the stomach and proximal
duodenum .
