Intramural gastric hematoma imitating a gastrointestinal stromal tumor – case report and literature review
Languages of publication
The article presents a case report of a patient with an intramural gastric hematoma. Diagnostic examinations were suggestive of a suspected gastrointestinal stromal tumor Normal image was observed in gastroscopic examination while abdominal CT scan revealed a nodular lesion along the greater curvature of the stomach extending from the posterior wall and adjoining the pancreas and the spleen. The patient was qualified for surgical treatment. Laparotomy was performed followed by total gastric resection and Roux-en-Y reconstruction of the gastrointestinal tract. Post-operative histopathological examination revealed the presence of an extensive hematoma penetrating the perigastric fat tissue along with numerous hemosiderinophages and segmental indicators of formation of inflammatory granulation tissue suggestive of a chronic nature of the lesion. Immunohistochemical GIST assays (CD117, DOG-1, CD34, CD31, SMA, S-100, CKAE1/AE3, Ki-67) were negative. No complications were observed in the post-operative course. Patient is subject to continued follow-up and observation. Follow-up gastroscopy and abdominal CT scan performed 6 months after the surgery revealed an unremarkable image.
