 Gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumors are a group of tumors originating from the mesenchymal stem cells of the GI tract. Digestive tract Schwannomas are rare mesenchymal tumors which occur most frequently in the stomach. We report a 56-yearold woman who was examined endoscopically for dyspepsia which she had suffered from since 3 years ago. Around gastric antral mass was seen. Surgical resection was recommended. The pathological examination revealed a spindle cell tumor that was strongly positive for S-100 protein stain and non-reactive for other markers. The literature is reviewed.
