  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 36 year-old female patient presented with severe anemia (hemoglobin level 6.2 g/dl) . Upper gastrointestinal series x-ray photograph and endoscopy revealed a submucosal tumor in the anterior wall of the antrum. Consequently, partial gastrectomy was carried out. Pathological findings of the resected specimen were as follows : the tumor being mainly composed of the granulomatous tissue with infiltration of inflammatory cells and capillary growth, ulceration in the center, leiomyoma tissue only in the marginal zone of ulceration. Our speculation is that atypical histology in this case was the result of the rapid granulation following the central ulceration of the tumor tissue.
