Most often they are asymptomatic and are recognised when either the mucosa oyerlying ulcerate leading to bleeding or are noticed incidentally on CT scan or EUS. When large it may present with nonspecific gastrointestinal symptoms or as an abdominal lump. Diagnosis can be confirmed by a CECT of abdomen with final diagnosis relying on the histopathology examination of specimen. Definitve treatment includes wide local excision with adjuvant tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Here we are reporting a case of GIST arising from duodenum in a 60year old female presenting with hypovolemic shock secondary to hemetemesis and melena and treated by resection of mass.
