Authors describe a case of gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) characterized by an inusual digestive bleeding. The patient had been observed for an episode of digestive hemorrhage without a clear endoscopic presence of a bleeding lesion, underlined after 9 months following the relapse of the symptomatology, and after further investigations. In the described case a long latency of time was observed among the first episode of bleeding and the evidence of the tumor. GIST is a rare tumor, the most frequent among the mesenchymal of the digestive tract. It can observed following also obstructive or rupture episodes. In the greatest part of the cases diagnosis follows a digestive hemorrhage. The patient has been submitted to gastrectomy and the follow up to 10 months is disease-free without other therapies.
