Bottom Line: Their development typically depends on mutations in the Kit or PDGFRA gene.Making the right diagnosis is crucial for patients, since complex surgical and pharmacological approaches are effective even in the advanced stages of the disease.Nevertheless, radical surgical treatment is still the primary choice for patients with GIST.

ABSTRACT
Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract. Their development typically depends on mutations in the Kit or PDGFRA gene. We have diagnosed and treated a duodenal bulb GIST in a 63-year-old woman. The confirmation of the diagnosis was made on the basis of a histological test after radical resection of the tumour. Making the right diagnosis is crucial for patients, since complex surgical and pharmacological approaches are effective even in the advanced stages of the disease. Nevertheless, radical surgical treatment is still the primary choice for patients with GIST.

Figure 0003: Duodenal bulb tumour (arrows) in computed tomography – frontal projection

Mentions: Tissue samples were taken for histopathological examination, which showed inflammatory granulation tissue. Abdominal computed tomography revealed a solid nodular change in the duodenal bulb, 19 mm × 18 mm × 24 mm in diameter, emanating from the medial wall of the duodenal bulb, and the signal strengthened significantly after intravenous administration of contrast medium (Figures 2 and 3).
