Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST), though rare, present to the gastric surgeon not infrequently making a heightened awareness of this condition a pre-requisite of prompt recognition and timely treatment.. We describe the presentation, diagnosis and the limitations of treatment and follow up of a patient with GIST in a developing country. Surgery still remains as the only readily available modality of treatment in developing countries.
