A 60 year-old man who underwent laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in 2007 presented in 2017 with melena and anemia. Upper endoscopy revealed an ulcerated submucosal lesion in the Roux limb just distal to the gastrojejunal anastomosis. Endoscopic ultrasound and biopsy were performed, with pathology consistent with gastrointestinal stromal tumor. CT imaging showed no evidence of significant extension or metastasis. The lesion was resected laparoscopically, with preservation of the original gastrojejunal anastomosis.
