Abstract
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. But represent only less than 3% of gastrointestinal malignant neoplasm. Stomach is most common site of localization, followed by the small intestine, other parts of the GI tract, and the omentum. These tumors occasionally misdiagnosed as gynecological tumors. We report a case of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (CD117 positive and CD34 negative) giving an impression of ovarian malignancy with a brief review of the literatures.
Key Words: Gastrointestinal stromal tumor, CD117, CD34
