Gastric haemolymphangioma is a very rare benign tumour. Pathologically, it is composed of lymphatic vessels and blood vessels. Only a few cases of haemolymphangioma have been reported in the literature so far, all of which developed at sites other than the stomach. The authors believe that a haemolymphangioma occurring in the stomach has not been previously reported. The patient was a healthy 68-year-old male who had felt light epigastric discomfort for 3 months. A CT scan and a gastrofiberscope examination revealed a well-demarcated mass on the posterior wall of the stomach near the lesser curvature. The mass was successfully removed by surgery. During the 18-month follow-up period, the patient was asymptomatic with no recurrence. In this case report, we discuss the imaging findings as well as the pathological features of this unusual case, with a review of the related literature.
