The article presents a clinical study of a 64 year-old man with mushroom-like gastric tumor. The man was referred to a hospital due to gatrointestinal tract bleeding. His upper gastrointestinal tract endoscopy showed a large submucosal ulcerated lesion of the fundus. The computed tomography revealed an exophytic tumor of the gastric wall. Wedge resection of the tumor was performed, wherein the tumor infiltrated the gastric wall.
