Gastric stromal tumors display a bewildering array of immunohistological and ultrastructural features as well as variable biological behavior. These tumors are rare as compared with ones that arise from the gastric epithelium. Moreover, they have been the subjects of controversy because of their uncertain histogenesis. We report the pathological features of gastric stromal tumors we recently encountered in three patients.

    The MIB-1 labelling index (LI) is used as a prognostic indicator for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). However, whether a biopsy-based LI represents the entire tumor is uncertain, because the LI is not always homogeneous. In this study, we examined the extent and characteristics of LI...

    Rhabdoid tumor, first described as an aggressive kidney tumor in infants and children and also observed less commonly in extra-renal locations, is seen very exceptionally in the gastrointestinal system. Gastrointestinal tumors with rhabdoid features are also extremely rare. A 59-year-old man...

    Abstract  The diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) relies on a combination of the following criteria: anatomic location, typical histopathology, and the presence of CD 117-antigen (the tyrosine kinase receptor, c-kit) or CD 34-antigen. Imatinib mesylate, a specific tyrosine...

    Perivascular epithelioid cell tumors (PEComas) are a group of rare mesenchymal neoplasms. Gastrointestinal PEComas are exceptionally rare, there being only a few case reports in the literature involving the colon and small intestine. Nearly all PEComas show immunoreactivity for both melanocytic...

    Gastrointestinal stromal tumours are rare visceral neoplasms. Some 3% to 38% of them have malignant histological features and are associated with a high incidence of recurrence. We present a patient with liver metastases from a malignant GIST.
