Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) of the stomach was treated by endoscopic enucleation in fi ve patients. They were three men and two woman, aged 36-56 years. Tumors located in the cardia were completely enucleated endoscopically without any serious complication. The largest diameter of removed tumors ranged from 1.2 to 2.5 cm. Histopathological diagnosis was GIST with low risk of malignancy (mitotic index < 5/50 high power field) in all cases. The patients were disease-free for 10.5-42.2 mo after endoscopic enucleation.
