Abstract

Gastric intramural hematoma is a very rare disease entity. There is no reported case of gastric intramural hematoma in Korea following the extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL). Most have been associated with hereditary coagulopathy, but abdominal trauma, peptic ulceration, and inadvertent ingestion of foreign bodies have been listed as etiologic agents. This is the first description of a case of gastric intramural hematoma simulating gastric submucosal tumor, which regressed spontaneously, following ESWL in a patient with pancreatic duct stones.
