Two cases of primary tumors of the stomach in children (7 and 10 years of age) are reported. One of them had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and the other hamartoma, both radically operated. In the former case subtotal resection of the stomach was made followed by polychemotherapy. For an observation period of one year there was no evidence of recurrence or metastases of the neoplastic process. The incidence, histologic characteristics, clinical course, diagnostic and therapeutic problems in tumors of the stomach in children, with special reference to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and hamartoma, are discussed.
