Primary liposarcoma of the stomach

Turk J Gastroenterol. 2013;24(2):167-9. doi: 10.4318/tjg.2013.0510.


Sarcomas represent less than 1% of adult solid malignancies and are rarely seen in the gastrointestinal tract. Here, we report a 59-year-old female with a well-differentiated liposarcoma of the stomach. This is the first case in the literature in which endoscopic ultrasound proved to be a diagnostic tool for gastric liposarcoma.
