Abstract: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are relatively uncommon mesenchymal tumors affecting the GI tract. Non palpable gastro duodenal are difficult to diagnose. Here is one such case diagnosed on upper GI endoscopy and was evaluated. On evaluation features were suggestive of CA stomach and endoscopic biopsy report was inconclusive. The patient underwent exploratory laparotomy and post operatively histopathology report suggested of Gist. Hence on table surgeons decision of surgical procedure is gold standard in deciding the further outcome of the disease.
