Magdy Giurgius, MD, Archana Ramaswamy, MD

University of Missouri

This is a 62-year-old white male with multiple medical problems who presented with marked weight loss. He had an extensive work up that demonstrated a large paraesophageal hernia and a gastric mass originating from the greater curvature of the stomach. The EUS guided fine needle aspiration of the mass was suggestive of a gastrointestinal stromal tumor. He underwent an uneventful laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair and resection of the mass. The final pathology demonstrated a low grade GIST. The patient did well on follow-up.
