    CASE REPORT

Difficulty of preoperative diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor. Description of a significant case

Ajraldi G., Aimo I., Abbo L.

The case of a patient affected by gastro-intestinal stromal tumor (GIST) of the gastric posterior wall in whom all the preoperative investigations (including abdominal TC and FNA) suggested a preoperative diagnosis of pancreatic tumor is reported. The therapeutic decision (such as extensive surgery, limited surgery, surgery abstention, immunotherapy) varies greatly in these two patologies, making this case emblematic on the one hand for the preoperative difficulty of GIST diagnosis, and on the other for the necessity to keep in mind when making the differential diagnosis the presence of this, even if rare, tumor.
