  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 49-year-old woman visited our hospital with a complaint of abdominal discomfort. X-ray and endoscopic examination of the stomach showed a submucosal tumor on the greater curvature of the antrum. Partial gastrectomy with lymph nodes dissection was performed. The cut surface of the tumor showed a gray-white solid mass. Histologically the tumor was composed of spindle cells. Peroxidase-antiperoxidase immunohistochemical method revealed the elements containing S-100 protein. This method is useful for identifying neopalsms derived from Schwann cells.
