MARQUES MEDINA, E. et al. GIST tumors with cystic morphology. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2006, vol.29, n.3, pp.50-53. ISSN 0378-4835.

The unusual appearance of gastrointestinal stromal tumors as a cystic mass in abdomen imaging studies, often hides a correct or suspected preoperative diagnosis. A few reports suggest that the multicystic variance of GIST may occur as exophytic pedunculated specimens causing congestion, edema and hemorrhage during their growth. The diagnosis of GIST must be considered when a cystic mass is found in abdominal CT or ultrasonography.

Keywords : GIST; Cystic changes; Stromal tumors.
