Diagnosis and treatment of leiomyoma, neurogenic tumor and gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) in the esophagus



Diagnosis and treatment of leiomyoma, neurogenic tumor and gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) in the esophagus



Stomach and Intestine 39(4): 539-551



Most of gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumors (GIMT) in the esophagus are leiomyoma, but the incidence of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), leiomyosarcoma and schwannoma is low. In cases of GIST and leiomyosarcoma, often seen in the lower esophagus, the diameter of the tumor exceeded 5 cm in 80% and even tumors of 10 cm or larger were not rare. Recurrence rate was low after treatment of tumors not more than 5 cm in diameter.
