Abstract

Background: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is an uncommon soft tissue neoplasm rarely reported in the stomach. Case presentation: We identified a tumor highly suggestive of poorly differentiated gastric adenocarcinoma in the lesser curvature of the stomach of a 53-year-old female during screening endoscopy. Although the patient's gastric biopsy did not reveal cancer, the tumor configuration was strongly suspicious for malignancy, and we performed a gastric wedge resection using a combined laparoscopic and endoscopic method. The lesion was diagnosed as inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor based on its morphological and immunohistological features. Conclusions: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor should be considered in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors in the stomach. We present a case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor safely treated with combined laparoscopic and endoscopic gastric wedge resection.
