Gastric leiomyoma mimicking a carcinoma

Burhan Ahmad Khan, Azhar Mahmood Qureshi, Qasim Mahmood Buttar, Mohammad Amjad Rasool, Asad Ali Khan.

Gastric leiomyomas, though the commonest benign tumour of the stomach, can mimic a carcinoma both clinically and also upon histopathological examination (1). This can lead to needless anxiety for the patient, possibly a diagnostic dilemma for the physician, and even a source of embarrassment for the pathologist. The clinical features are notorious for their varied spectrum, and limited endoscopic biopsy may often be non-diagnostic or even erroneous, thus compounding the diagnostic challenge (2). We present a case to illustrate some of these facts.

Key words: Gastric lymphoma, carcinoma, H. pylori
