ABSTRACTGastrointestinal stromal tumors are the most frequent mesenchymal tumors of the digestive tract. The highest prevalence of the disease is found in the stomach. The treatment of choice is resection of the tumor area with histological borders without lymphadenectomy. The minimal access techniques represent a very favorable alternative to treat gastrointestinal stromal tumors. There are few reports in literature about surgically and oncologically treated tumors of this type. The uncommon occurrence of this pathology and the benefits of laparoscopic techniques for treatment prompted us to present this paper in order to describe the clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment of a patient who presented with pancreas tumor vs gastric stromal tumor. A laparoscopic examination was made to confirm the presence of a gastric fundus tumor and greater curvature, so laparoscopic tumor resection was performed, with favorable evolution, immunohistochemical confirmation of gastrointestinal stromal tumors and oncological follow-up.
