Abstract

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) form a group of uncommon neoplasms originated from the pleuripotential mesenchymal cell. There is no final conclusion about accurate diagnosis and prognostic factors of GIST. Clinical presentation is not specific and intraperitoneal bleeding is a very rare complication. We report a case of a malignant GIST complicated by intraperitoneal hemorrhage, which was diagnosed by abdominal CT and EUS before operation. A subtotal gastrectomy was perfomed without complication. The patient is still alive without recurrence.
