Gastric lipoma is a rare benign lesion that represents less than 1% of all gastric tumors, the related symptoms depend on the location and size: it can cause bleeding, gastroduodenal intussusception or intestinal obstruction that require intervention urgent surgery. Most of them remain asymptomatic, as in our case, and represent an autoptic finding. We describe the case of a middle-aged patient who arrived at our hospital to perform a virtual colonoscopy CT scan, with an incidental finding of gastric lipoma.


KEY WORDS: Lipoma; Stomach, neoplasms; Intestinal obstruction
