Gastric adenocarcinoma is a rare diagnosis in children. Modern treatment includes chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery and has evolved over the past decade.

The case will be followed by a brief discussion of the presentation, current management guidelines, and prognosis of this rare pediatric entity.
